Those bemoaning the lack of good eating joints at Bandra Kurla Complex may have something to cheer about.
The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is planning to set up a 3,000 sq-ft, state of the art food court at G Block, which it hopes will attract some big names in the catering industry.
“BKC has become a business hub but we have received complaints that there is a lack of decent eating places. We hope this food court will attract some well known brands,” MMRDA Joint Project Director Dilip Kawathkar said.
The food court will come up at a plot near the Asian Heart Hospital. The development authority has already floated tenders for the project seeking parties interested in building the food court premises.
The BKC, which is spread over 370 hectares of prime land, has only one food court alongside a recreational garden.
“What we are looking at is a food court of international standards,” Kawathkar said.
The setting up of the food court is part of MMRDA’s plans for improving BKC’s internal infrastructure.
The authority has already been working on plans to set up a dedicated bicycle track in BKC in the next few months.
It is targeting a 12-km long stretch by the end of this year. The width of these tracks will be similar to those of footpaths.
These provisions will be made through the Rs 150-crore fund that the MMRDA has marked for the development of BKC.
