Project Description

TOWNLAND was commissioned as the Land Use and Master Planner for the transformation of the 931 ha Site in the vicinity of Durgapur into a comprehensive “Aerotropolis”, comprising a new Airport, a Mixed Use Township, an Industrial and Logistics Zone, an IT Hub and an Institutional Zone. The Township is planned for 90,000 residents and will have a large variety of housing typologies for people from all social strata, as well as modern supporting facilities that include state-of-the-art educational and medical Institutions, a comprehensive shopping and leisure centre, a theme park and an 18-hole championship golf course.

To ensure the Industrial-Logistics zone doesn’t interfere with the lifestyle qualities of the residential Township, the Aerotropolis was planned by TOWNLAND as two clearly separated entities, bisected by a main vehicular road bringing passengers from the highway straight to the Airport at the far end of the site.  At the heart of the Township will be a Mixed Use Town Center, planned around a Central Park that will become the lively hub of activity for future Skycity residents.

TOWNLAND undertook the Stage 1 Conceptual Master Planning and Stage 2 Detailed Master Planning and Urban Design Guidelines for the Project. The Sujalaam Skycity Airport is operational since 2015. The rest of Sujalaam Skycity is currently under construction.
