Kandla Port has been identified by the Central Indian Government as one of the future major Port Gateways for India. As part of the planned Port expansion, TOWNLAND has worked in association with Tata Consulting Engineers on developing the Detailed Master Plan (2040), Urban Design Guidelines and plot level Development Control Guidelines for one Mixed Use Township Area and one Industrial Area. TOWNLAND focused on a sustainable urban development strategy, with a strong emphasis on the human scale of the built environment, a pedestrian orientation and an extensive network of attractive, people oriented public spaces. At the heart of the Township a unique network of Pedestrian Only streets, squares and parks has been planned that will help transform how Kandla residents will spend their leisure time.
Construction of the first phase of the Kandla Smart Industrial Port Area started in 2017.
