Times of India, 05 December 2020
Kolkata: Hidco’s plan to set up a multi-storied parking lot with a capacity for 3,000 cars near Biswa Bangla Convetion Centre moved a step closer to reality with the floating of a tender to engage an agency for the construction of the project. The cost of the facility has been pegged at Rs 135 crore.
To come up on the plots 117 and 118 in the CBD, the parking lot will serve the Silicon Valley and Fintech hub that are being developed in the vicinity along with mall, multiplexes, hotels and other commercial complexes. At present, New Town has parking lots at gate 1 and 3 of Eco Park next to Tata Medical Centre and behind the DCP office.
According to plans, the car park will be a ramp up multi-storied structure, in which the first few floors will have commercial spaces for retail activities, showrooms, food joints and display floors while the upper floors will be used for car parking.
