Hyderabad: The seed master plan of the Andhra Pradesh capital proposes high-end luxury villas on the island of Uddandarayunipalem Lanka with an objective to develop the island as a lesser dense area. The villas will be a maximum of two stories high and only 40 dwelling units can be housed in one hectare.
Housing in the seed master plan area provides a variety of lifestyle choices. From independent luxury villas and 20-storied high-density residential family apartments to low-density eight-storied buildings to and mix-residential-cum-commercial apartments, the seed master plan provides for “homes for all”.
Four residential typologies have been proposed within the seed area such as high, medium, low and mixed-use residential category of houses. The high-density residential clusters are proposed along the Krishna riverfront, and along the linear parks connecting to the waterfront. These high-density residential clusters will house almost 15 per cent of the total SEED population on 45 hectare.
They primarily comprise multi family high-rise apartments with integrated community facilities including common playgrounds, clubhouses, car parks, etc. At a maximum height of 20 stories, the development density of such developments would go up to approximately 185 dwelling units per hectare.
The proposed medium density residential developments will house about 42,000 residents covering almost 64 hectares. This category encourages mid rise multifamily public/private apartments with common facilities within its compound.
The maximum height of these apartments will be eight stories, resulting in densities up to 120 dwelling units per hectare. About 30 per cent of the medium density residential clusters are proposed to house government employees and their families.
Eighty-four hectares of low-density developments have been planned within the SEED area. The housing typologies proposed include detached and semi-detached houses. Majority of the low-rise developments are proposed along the existing southwestern green corridor.
For mixed-use residential category, 332 hectares has been allotted. Of this, over 60 per cent of the residential population within the SEED area. The mixed-use residential clusters promote the “live, work and play” concept....
