IGI’s new domestic terminal dubbed T1D is all set to start operating on April 14. Designed by the prolific architect Hafeez Contractor, the new terminal has almost double the space of the 70 year old terminal 1B. Once Terminal 3 is thrown open in April 2010, T1D will cater solely to Low Cost Carriers. The terminal has 8 entry gates, 72 check-in counters and 16 security channels.

…an update! (18 Aug, 2007)

Hi guys

In an update to my previous post on the NCR’s biggest development,
NOIDA | Unitech Grande | *Eighty* 10-60 storey towers, I managed to find a really high-resolution rendering of the project:

Unitech Grande, Noida, India

…Delhi National Capital Region’s biggest and tallest development to date!

Hi all, check this out! (click for larger image):

^^ Look like India to you?

Located in Noida, one of the commercial hubs and one of several future CBDs of India’s National Capital Region (NCR = Delhi, New Delhi and nodal cities), Unitech Group recently announced what will include the tallest approved skyscrapers in the NCR, Unitech Grande.

Noida is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Conceived as a one of several greenfield metropolitan nodes that would focus the development of both Old and New Dehli, it features world-class infrastructure designed to support support high-capacity residential and commercial development. The eventual plan by 2015 is to have a fully modern central business district comprising commercial skyscrapers around at least one supertall — one of several CBD nodal cities (which also includes Faridabad, Gurgaon and Ghaziabad.)

Unitech is one of India’s largest builders, and continually have churned out world-class buildings with a cutting-edge architecture that is designed to be a modern take on traditional Indian architecture, even to the point of being designed to adhere to ancient Vaastu principals. Their towers, like those of all developers in India, continue to grow taller and taller with each project. It’s expected that their Mumbai project on mill-land redevelopments will be even taller still.

For more information, and a large collection of hi-res pictures of this awesome project originally posted by me on Skyscrapercity.com, read on!…
