This project envisions a comprehensive lakefront precinct, set in the heart of Ahmedabad, which will stand out as a memorable urban space. With the lake periphery of 2.0 km, its primary objective is to create an efficient and durable infrastructure that will foster entirely new uses in addition to supporting current day activities.

Strategies include creating large pedestrian zones along the lake’s edge, developing approximately 6 km of access streets, creating access points to the lakefront, enhancing recreational potential by improving public facilities, conserving historic buildings and encouraging overall development around it. The plan emphasizes on good design detailing for sidewalks, carriageways and on street parking, facilities for the informal sector and access ramps to the lake’s ghats.
