    KALA NAGAR JUNTION: TRANSIT GATEWAYExperts at the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change say the way we retrofi t our cities, more than any other thing humankind can do, is the number one tool the world can use to reduce carbon emissions and prevent the loss of bio-diversity. Currently more than 53% of the global population lives in cities and yet cities only comprise 2% of land mass while producing 75% of the World’s CO2 emissions. We believe that we, as planners and urban designers, have a responsibility to tackle climate change, the biggest challenge our century is facing, by minimizing the ecological and carbon footprint of the city through: a climate action plan that promotes an effective public transportation system; smart city design and growth patterns with a sustainable and reliable infrastructure network ; and by creating cities that are livable and provide access to open space and cultural facilities.

    Our design for the Kala Nagar Junction embraces a vision for Greater Mumbai that promotes a livable city that can prosper well in the 21st century global economy. We believe that the Kala Nagar Junction can be transformed into a truly livable district center where open space, cultural facilities, retail and offi ce can be integrated into a multi-modal transit terminal that promotes a sustainable lifestyle and will reduce the overall carbon footprint of the city.

    EXISTING CONDITIONS The current condition of Kala Nagar Junction is ineffi cient and unsafe but has large potential to be transformed. The overall area of public land is quite large, yet almost completely unusable. The area consists of a series of broken-up parcels that are disconnected by unsafe, over-crowded roads. This results in poor quality of the public realm which is unattractive for pedestrians and confusing for motorists. The bus stop and other public ameneties are similarly disconnected from each other and surrounded by noisy, polluted roads making them undesirable destinations.

    MMRDA PROPOSED INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS The MMRDA has put forward a plan to improve the transportation infrastructure at Kala Nagar Junction that, while solving many of the traffi c problems, does not help create a meaningful and usable public realm. In addition, the proposed improvements do not address the need to integrate all planned public transportation systems into a multi-modal terminal that would make the public transportation option for all Mumbakers attractive and realistic. The MMRDA planned improvements also cut the land at the Kala Nagar Junction into a series of smaller land parcels that are not that usable.

    OUR PROPOSED REDESIGN OF INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS We propose to realign some of the MMRDA improvements to recapture land area and create meaningful public open space and other public-oriented development. This approach also connects the Mithi river to the Junction and creates a multi-modal, mixed-use district centre that would become a new destination in the city and reinforce the emerging poly-centric form of the greater Mumbai region. The goal is to create a new place in the city that celebrates and enables sustainable transportation alternatives in the Mumbai beyond private cars.

    1. Create a Multi-Modal, pedestrian-friendly Transit Hub, connecting the metro train, brt, and western railway (bandra) to promote sustainable, low-carbon transportaion options.

    2. Create a District Center and Mixed-Use Destination with a range of public uses, including retail, commercial, and cultural amenities.

    3. Expand the waterfront park and public promenade onto, and into, the new mixed use building and transit center

    4. Create a Landmark development for Kala Nagar as a district center and a gateway to the BKC offi ce district.

    MUMBAI: TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE POLY-CENTRIC CITYTo solve Mumbai’s traffi c congestion and resulting carbon footprint, it is imperative that Mumbai becomes a true poly-centric city centred on mixed-use district centre, well connected by public transit. District centres can provide retail, offi ce, cultural centres, hotels and high density residential, all within a short walking distance from a major transit stop.

    KALA NAGAR AS A DISTRICT CENTRE AND A GATEWAY TO BKCThe Kala Nagar junction can be redesigned in a way that reinforces its role as a destination in the district, and not as a space that is overwhelmed by public infrastructure and traffi c congestion. The Kala Nagar Junction can become a true mixed use district center centered on a multi-modal terminal where the planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and the metro can be interconnected with the Bandra Rail station to create a vital mixed-use destination in the district, and a gateway to the Bandra Kurla Complex.

    COMMERCIALCreating leasable real estate at Kala

    Nagar will help fund better public amenities on the site such as a larger

    park and an educational centre or museum.

    PROTECTIONProviding protection from both the harsh sun and strong rains allows

    commuters and visitors to feel more comfortable and provides a variety of

    environments in the public realm. The canopy can also be used to generate

    the electricity needed in the transit centre.

    PUBLIC AMENITIESConnecting directly to the transit hub

    and main pedestrian thoroughfare creates great potential for retail opportunities as well as cultural

    facilities such as a museum or educational centre.

    PUBLIC AMENITIESBy extending underneath the transit

    centre it is possible to connect everything back to the river and create frontage along the proposed waterfront

    promenade. Additionally it enables to restoration of the mangrove habitat

    into a city-wide amenity

    TRANSIT HUBConnecting to the existing raised

    pedestrian walkway allows for the creation of a main transit level which

    provides for the inter-change between Metro, BRT, Bike and pedestrian

    without a single street crossing
