East Delhi Hub was conceptualized to be a new Transit Oriented Development that imbibes the core values of a sustainable “Smart City”. As a pilot project that experiments with the new TOD policy drafted by DDA, our approach was to incorporate an “organic density” that introduces extensive vertical mixed-use development to tackle the issue of high density and ensure 24-hour active, safer spaces. This includes commercial, residential, medical and recreational facilities and an iconic 100 storey LEED Platinum rated tower that will be a new landmark in Delhi. East Delhi Hub’s design is based on a sustainable grid and building configuration which combines a sustainable orientation with the complex geometry of the site. The result is a highly efficient radial hexagonal system that upholds “Smart Mobility”, “Smart Infrastructure” and “Smart Living”.
