B NDDI I BBAAZZZZAAR R RRE EDDE EV V LO PM B H H EE N E LE O P M E NETN T : Introduction From being an irrigation tract in its early days as mentioned in the Maharashtra State Gazette as, ‘in the north-west of Dongri there existed a plantation of thespesia populnia or bhendi which has given its name as Bhendi Bazaar’ to being developed by the British to resettle communities affected by the Great Mumbai Fire that broke in 1803 at the British Fort area to eventually mushroom into a bustling business district, Bhendi Bazaar in South Mumbai, India has come a long way in terms of socio-economic evolution. Even with its 200 years history of characteristic entrepreneurial resilience, Bhendi Bazaar has gradually sunk in an abyss of civic neglect and infrastructural despair leading it to be seriously challenged in a liberal Indian economy.
A strong need is felt to conserve this segment of the city area of immense heritage value. An attempt for restructuring and revitalizing to conserve this area is proposed in this project. The project is undertaken under the JNNURM programme through a partnership with Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).

The project is delayed till June 2014.
The Proposal The proposal attempts to reorganize the activities in terms of organized parking and hawking spaces, to define the spatial quality and bring forth the age old grandeur that Walled city and its historic precincts is renowned for.

CASE STUDY:2 BHADRA PLAZA DEVELOPMENT
Bhadra is one of the largest market areas stretching from the Lal Darwaja, the main AMTS terminus on one side and from Bhadra Fort, eastwards to a second gate, Teen Darwaja, and thence further east to link with the cloth markets, and the central jewellery and vegetable markets of Manek Chowk. There are about 3,500 vendors between Bhadra Fort and Teen Darwaja. Bhadra is one of the oldest markets in the walled city, with a predominance of Muslim traders. The main commodities sold are new clothes, household goods, shoes and sandals, and fashion accessories.
The bridge is proposed between Ellis Bridge and Nehru Bridge to facilitate easy movement of pedestrians between recreational mile and heritage park that will come up on the opposite banks of Sabarmati River.
AMC is now involved in relocating hundreds of hawkers who occupy a large part of the Bhadra complex to create the envisioned leisure centre.
Over 50% of the 1250 commercial establishments in the project area are owned by Dawoodi Bohras – one of the oldest mercantile communities that first settled in the city during the 18th century. Apart from the traditional business of hardware tools, artifacts bazaar, the Friday flea market, there has been an increase in pilgrim tourism due to the religious and cultural centers situated in the area like the world renowned Raudat Tahera, the mausoleum of Syedna Taher Saifuddin.
REDEVELOPMENT STRATEGY Here are some renders of the 18 acre Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment project that involves moving 25,000 people from 250+ old buildings into apartment towers. The project is being developed by the Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust. All the mosques in the area will be left untouched. From an old TOI article : • 18 acres, 270 buildings, 4,000 homes, 2,000 commercial establishments and 25,000 people. • 80% of the project involves rehousing the existing tenants free of cost in brand new buildings. • The other 20% will include four residential skyscrapers to be sold at the market rate to recover the project costs. (renders show 3, latest walkthrough shows 4) • Each rehab building will have one floor dedicated to services, provision for recreational facilities and Two basements for parking. • Almost 50% of the area will be reserved for open spaces and green areas.

Location and Context
However, be it petty shopkeepers or value added service providers depending on elite clientele or businesses requiring spacious floor-space – all macro and micro market players have adversely been affected due to diminishing urban facilities in the vicinity.
With an overall 74% ground coverage, the present 66,264.74 Sq. m. area has one of the highest population density in South Mumbai.
