Megaproject: Lanco Hills, Hyderabad: 90 floor tower, 16 x 30fl, 12 x 20fl, and more!

(Original Article):

A mega techno-residential township
Quote:
Tuesday, June 13, 2006

The Lanco Group has sewn up plans for a mega techno-residential township of 18 million sq ft that would come up in a 100-acre site near here with an investment outlay of about Rs 3,600 crore.

The company is planning a 90-storey building, which could potentially be the tallest such structure in the country. Since this comes in a special zone, clearances would be formality, the company said....... Apart from developing 16 residential towers each of about 30 levels, this project will host a mega mall complex and two hotels - a five-star and a four-star one.

The Lanco group Chairman, Mr L. Madhusudhan Rao, told that the magnitude of the project was such that this will effectively create a larger capacity than the existing Hitec City area near here, where a majority of the IT companies have set up shop. The project, to be taken up through a strategic partner, would be completed within three years.

"We plan to unveil the project in August, and a leading Mumbai-based designer has been roped in for its design. The company expects to tap into other metros following up on their capability to handle infrastructure projects," Mr Rao said. Giving an overview of the mega office-cum-township project named Lanco Hills, Mr Rao said that this would be a mixed development project that will have a built-up space of about 18 million sq ft, featuring top-notch office space, residential facilities and large recreation zones.

With regards to the office space, the company is planning 12 towers each of up to 20 levels that would be custom designed for IT and IT-enabled services (ITES) companies and this would form part of the Knowledge Corridor that the State Government is in the process of developing, he said. Apart from developing 16 residential towers each of about 30 levels, this project will host a mega mall complex and two hotels - a five-star and a four-star one. The mall will have a built up space of about two million sq ft, with multi-level parking space.

In all, the township will have 7.5-million sq ft. of office space and 8 million sq ft of housing facility in addition to the mall and hotel complexes.

Cheers,
Jai

The company is poised to be one of the largest `mixed-use' developer in the world, worth over US $ 1 billion

HYDERABAD: The city-based Lanco Hills Technology Park Private Limited of the Lanco Group has been notified as a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) by the Union Ministry of Commerce with effect from April 10, 2007.

A sector-specific Special Economic Zone for Information Technology (IT) and IT-enabled services (ITES) will be set up over 25-acres in Manikonda village, Rajendranagar Mandal of Ranga Reddy district.

The company is planned to be positioned as one of the largest `mixed-use' developers in the world worth over US $ 1 billion.

It constitutes realty sectors like IT/ITES space, mall, ultra modern living spaces, extraordinary entertainment, luxury hotels and service apartments, to name a few. It will be a truly international standard integrated IT park, he said.

Chairman L. Madhusudhan Rao said "The sanction is recognition of our credentials and unique track record in creating global-scale landmarks." He said it would be a trendsetter in destination-building and etch Hyderabad as a signature to India as an emerging global destination.

More renderings have been released of this project. Looks like the first phase is already being marketed. The 90-storey tower's design, as well as that of the other buildings is indeed finalized. The pinnacle of the signature tower will reach the equivalent of 100 stories in height.

Lanco Hills has formally been launched! Some points

1. Signature Tower will NOT be 90 stories, but will be a tower of OVER a hundred stories, possibly the worlds tallest residential tower.

2. Groundbreaking on the first phase of the project will begin on July 4, and the other buildings will be completed in two phases within 4 years.

Posted online: Tuesday, July 03, 2007 at 0005 hours IST

HYDERABAD, JUL 2: The $500 million Lanco group has entered realty business with a bang through its SPV christened Lanco Hills Technology Park Private Ltd. The company proposes to develop about 30 million sq ft for IT-SEZ, ITeS and residential zones with an estimated investment of Rs 5,500 crore.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Monday, Lanco Infratech Ltd managing director G Venkatesh Babu said the property will be developed in two phases on a 108-acre plot at Manikonda village, about 18 km from the upcoming international airport.

It will have 12 IT towers including an SEZ and 15 residential blocks besides two hotels and malls, he added. The project is scheduled to be completed in the next four years excluding the signature block, which will be the tallest in the world.

“We cannot reveal the number of floors at this point of time, but it will be definitely be over 100 floors and become a centre of attraction,” Babu said.
