Master

Plan

Sewage contaminated storm water out-falls along with dumping of


industrial waste.
Though a major source of water for the city and despite the building of a
major barrage to retain water, except for a few months the river is dry.
The riverbank slums are disastrously flood prone and lack basic
infrastructure services.
The slums located along the riverbed also pose a major impediment to
efficient management of monsoon floods in the river

Revitalize the center of Ahmadabad

Create an identity of Ahmadabad

Improve housing for the


poor

To stop sewage from entering the river through the storm

water drainage system.


It proposed interception and diversion works
the construction of trunk sewers and pumping stations in the
periphery of the city
the desilting of storm water drains.
the up-gradation of existing sewage treatment plants.
the provision of sanitation infrastructure in river bank slums.

The Ahmadabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) set up the Sabarmati Riverfront


Development Corporation Ltd (SRFDCL) in May 1997.

The AMC appointed the Environment Planning Collaborative (EPC), an Ahmadabadbased urban planning consultancy firm, to prepare a plan.
First Phase: EPC identified a 9 km stretch of the riverfront extending from
Subhash bridge to Vasna barrage and proposed to reclaim 162 hectares (400 acres)
of the riverbed.
After observing 2006 flood and its impact ; land use plan added Subhash bridge to
Dafnala so total reclaimed land is now 202 hectare.

The average width of the Sabarmati channel was 382 metres (1,253 ft) and the
narrowest cross-section 330 metres (1,080 ft) ; to develop the riverfront, SRFDCL
had uniformly narrowed the channel to 275 metres (902 ft).

Pedestrian walkway that


provides public access to
sabarmati river and creates a
space for recreational activity.

It will redirect the flow of sewage to


sewage treatment plants at Vasana and
Pirana ;preventing sewage to drain
from storm water pipes into river.

In addition to supporting the reclaimed


land and new development ,the retaining
wall, stands taller than the HFL ,
protecting the city in case of high floods.

The earth filling creates a base


foundation to develop infrastructure
, promenades,gardens,roads and
buildings.

PROPOSED ROAD
NETWORK

(SRFDCL) have a 500-metre-long tunnel on the drawing board, designed for


smooth traffic flow between Nehru Bridge and Ellisbridge on the east bank of the
river.
On the western side of the river, a 4 lane wide road West River Drive will be
constructed at Subhash Bridge, Gandhi Bridge and Sardar Bridge, while on the
Eastern side, a 6 lane wide road East River Drive will come up at Dudheshwar
Bridge, Gandhi Bridge and Sardar Bridge.

Almost 40% of the land on banks for


garden.
Theme based parks and gardens from
Vasna barrage to Subhas bridge.

Stone posts in the garden will


provide info on important
dates and events in history
and insights into the life and
times of Gandhi

a sundial will be another feature

The saleable built-up


area is calculated as a
multiple of the area of
the footprint and the
number of floors
assigned to each of the
plot shape.
No compound wall; slot
for parking within the
premises and there
would be public parking
spaces also
For the design effect,
buildings in shapes of
circles, square, rhombus
and quadrilaterals are
planned in prime real
estate zones

No concept of Floor Space Index (FSI) on Sabarmati Riverfront for


now.
the 20-per cent of land reserved for commercial development has
perfect pre-decided geometrical plot shapes that would define the shape
of building coming on them and each shape has been assigned the
number of floors to go with it.

Approx. 15% of buildings along


riverfront will be sold for commercial
,residential, retail and recreational
development in order to finance the
project.

The Hudson river is one of


the rivers that is part of the
New York Harbor Estuary.
It starts at Mount Marcy;
which is the source.The
mouth of the Hudson is the
at the Battery in NYC.
The Hudson river also is
combined with the East river,
and flows into the Atlantic
Ocean.
The Hudson flows 315 miles
from Mt. Marcy to southern
Manhattan.
It has living organisms like
cod, oysters, and plankton,
and is safe for boating and
swimming.

Originally a working
waterfront.
Much of riverfront
left as an area of
abandoned industrial
portlands.
Other reasons:
The lack of automobile connections and
the environmental degradation of the
region.
Lack of effort to enhance environmental
and cultural resources in the region.
Waterfront walks and parks and mixed
uses which allow such walks and parks are
desired by area residents.
Dutch settlers cross the Hudson River near Fort Orange

The five-mile area from Battery Place to 59th Street will share a
number of common design elements to create a unified identity for
the overall park.
Strong pedestrian and vehicular links between urban center and
riverfront.
Since each of the neighborhoods bordering the park has a
distinctive look and personality, the Trust has selected different
designers for each geographic area or "segment.
- In the south, Segments 2/3 (Lower Manhattan and Tribeca)
designed by Sasaki Associates, followed by Mathews Nielsen.
- Segment 4 (Greenwich Village) by Abel Bainnson Butz.
- Segment 5 (Chelsea) by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.
- Segments 6/7 (Midtown and Clinton) by Richard Dattner
Architects/ Miceli Kulik Williams Joint Venture.

In October of 2003,a Federal Environmental Protection Agency ban


on discharging sewage waste from boats on the hudson river was put
into effect.
Grey water recycling systems.
Encouraging the use of fluted pilings in place of in place of smooth
pilings so as to provide additional habitat.
Encouraging the construction of riverfront walkway with more ecofriendly bulkheads with increased slope/mass to provide habitat for
marine plants and animals.
Designation of the riverfront zone that encourages smarter ,
greener buildings with self-contained
alternative energy sources.

4 BASIC
RIVERFRONT
TYPOLOGIES

BUILT RIVERFRONTAreas that privoritize water


dependent and water enhanced uses
that are accesible to public;include
lively,mixed use pedestrianfriendly
pubblic destiantions.

Natural areas: natural vegetation


preserved,human use retricted to
walkways.Shoreline consist of intact
vegetative buffer.
Community park: include recreational uses
Surface treatments include a combination of
turfs,gardens,natural areas,hard and soft
walkways.

Community greenways : areas serve as linear


movement corridor as well as for passive
uses as walking,fishing and water
enjoyment.

Along all shorelines except at built


riverfronts a vegetated greenway
maintained along the river that
extends to 100 year flood plain
boundary

In built riverfront adjacent to


municipal centres maintain a 70 foot area from the top of
the riverbank ,limited to publicly accessible water
dependent and water enhanced uses and includes a 16
wide walkway along the river.
