You will be forgiven the moment you post the Crowne Plaza renderings here

Great updates from you.

Where exactly in Tripunithra is the 40 storey coming up ? I visit Tripunithra once in a
while.

Abad Mall was in the news for a while. That it is under
construction at Kundannoor is a great update. In fact there are many more developers
coming up with mega plans at Kundannoor and Maradu. See for example,

Quote:
A Five Star hotel project along with an apartment complex housing 200 apartments spread over a 3 acre land at Kundanoor near the NH 47 Bye Pass. and NH 49 junction, with water frontage.– over 3 Lakh sq ft. Hyper super market, Convention center, Food Court, Games Complex and Multi level Parking Vijaya Group

KMC,

I have posted The Summit renderings in Cochin gallery. Meanwhile here is news on ICH Crowne Plaza.

IHG to manage KGA group's Crowne Plaza in Cochin
Pioneer News Service | Kochi

Kuwait-based construction company KGA Group and IHG, reportedly world's largest hotel concern by number of rooms, announced on Thursday the launch of their new hotel project Crowne Plaza, Cochin by laying the foundation stone for the proposed five-star hotel. The hotel is expected to start operation in the second quarter of 2009.

Crowne Plaza, Cochin would be the brand's first foray into the South Indian market and the group's third Crown Plaza hotel in India, a KGA release said here.

With 220 rooms and more than 1,500 sq mts of meeting space, the purpose to built meeting hotel will come up on NH 47 at Kundannur here, adjacent to backwater. The release promised to offer an innovative experience to both its leisure as well as corporate customers.

KGA Group managing director KG Abraham said that that his company was pleased to work with the international hotel giant IHG for Crowne Plaza, Cochin. IHG's South-West Asia operations director Michael Herrmann said that the partnership with KGA was a clear reflection of their commitment towards further portfolio expansion in India and was in line with his company's focus on developing strong hotel brands.

The foundation stone for the project was laid by State Public Works Minister TU Kuruvila at a function presided over and blessed by Geevarghese Mar Athanasius in the presence of Transports Minister Mathew T Thomas, Ernakulam district collector Muhammad Hanish and others.The Pioneer story

Here is the location of Choice Prestige.

source : wikimapia
Within an hour of my posting the Choice Prestige renderings here it has appeared
elsewhere. It is a basic decency that is eminently followed by many (like Suncity) to
acknowledge the source. But for KMC here nobody would have seen that rendering.

Construction workers to strike work today

Staff Reporter

60,000 workers in the sector to join the stir

KOCHI: Construction activities in the city will come to a standstill on Monday. The joint action council of various organisations in the construction sector will strike work to press their demands for immediate steps to solve the crisis in the sector.

As many as 60,000 construction workers in Kochi Corporation, Thripunithura and Kalamassery municipalities and neighbouring panchayats will join the stir being organised by key organisations in the segment, including the Kerala Builders' Form, Builders' Association of India, Kerala Builders' Association (KBA), Graduate Engineers Association, Kerala, Association of Piling Specialists, and other related organisations such as the Cement Dealers' Association and Kerala Vyapari Vyvasayi Ekopana Samithi.


Rally

The KBA would take out a rally from Marine Drive, in the morning, and stage a dharna near the Revenue Tower at Boat Jetty, according to its State president M.D. Jairaj. The dharna would be inaugurated by Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samithi State president T. Nazaruddin.

The builders said the Government should give the sector a fair deal .

The issue of reduced floor area ratio (FAR) was the focal point of the agitations. The builders said the construction segment should be accorded industry status and also sought comprehensive master plans for all the 14 districts in the State. This, they said, should be announced in a time-bound manner. The master plans for Kochi, Kozhikode and Thiruvananthapuram should be finalised within six months on the basis of the commercial importance of the cities, they added.

A massive escalation in cement prices following the proposals in the Budget -2007 had hit the construction segment. The builders sought corrective measures in the procedure of collection Building Tax.
I suppose this will deal a death blow to the bureaucratic oligarchy trying to scuttle Kochi's progress. These rodents
that gnaw into tax income generated on the sweat and blood of common man should be finished. More than 100,000
people are coming out on the streets, which no minister can ignore.

One more info , There is a Mega Project coming at Elamkulam Backwaters , I.e near to Ponneth Temple . Project is either 21 Towers of 18 Storeyed Buildings or 18 Towers of 21 Storeyed Buildings . (Either way it could go)
This was told by a vegetable vendor who sold his 3 cents Land for 20 Lacs . This 3 cent was acquired to get the plot complete. He doesnt know who the builder is , bcoz all transactions are routed through middle men.
Is it Emaaar , Is it Saihathi ,......
Upto you guys to find out the details , I know this info is very vague to catch, but am afraid only this much i Know.

I dont have much details on location ,as I heard about this project at the last minute when i was just packing off to Mumbai.
Please confirm where this Crown Plaza Hotel is coming up. I was told by my friend in Kundanoor that there is 5 Star Hotel coming up exactly opposite to Le- meridian . Le- Merdiian is on Right Side of Highway . This one is coming on Left side .(Exactly Opposite) I have seen the place .its a Huge site along side river.I knew something big is coming there . Is it Crown Plaza , or another 5 Star Hotel!!!!!.
Its great going Kochi !! I am sure Choice Prestige will loose its Numero One position very soon if Kochi is going like this.
