An NDMC official said that the terminus will be a first-of-its-kind integration of commercial space in Delhi-NCR with a large transportation facility, food zone and car parking. “The complex will have a commercial office space of around 29,671 square feet area. Our goal is to recover the initial input cost in 2-2.5 years of the project execution. The council plans to raise revenue of 2.4 crore per month from rentals of these commercial spaces,” the official added.

The official said that the existing parking space in the complex will be doubled. “It is a framed structure with thick glasses to allow large amount of natural light inside the complex and minimise electricity consumption. There is a provision of solar panels across the roof to sustain its power demand. Under the current arrangement, the passengers are forced to stand in an open area and we have decided to create covered waiting areas with amenities of drinking water and a cafeteria,” the official said.

NDMC will use granite for floors, wood plastic composite doors and windows, stainless steel railings, false ceiling and also construct vacuum dewatered trimix roads. “The overall plan features a new public convenience block, food zone and ticket vending area. The office space will be offered on the first and second floors,” the official added.

The redevelopment project report stated that the whole complex will be disabled friendly and the facility will have two basement levels for parking space, a ground floor for bus terminus and two upper floors for commercial space. The parking area has a space of accommodating 113 cars and will be equipped with electric charging stations, the plan added. The Shivaji stadium complex is spread over 4,235.7 sqm and the agency plans to add 5,702 sqm basement area and 2,757 sqm office space in the redeveloped complex.

An NDMC official said that the transport hub at Shivaji terminus will have seamless integration of public transport as well as bicycle sharing stations, auto-rickshaws and taxis. NDMC had also attempted a similar project in 2018-19 and the initial cost was estimated to be around 39 crore but no tenders were received.
