Highrise Buildings in Andhra Pradesh
In order to make available sufficient space for residential and commercial purposes, the state government in Andhra Pradesh has decided to build a cluster of 60-storeys high rise buildings close to the Krishna river bed and the sea coast in Amaravati. In this connection, the state has requested Singapore to provide a liberal floor-space index ratio in the core capital area so that the skyscrapers can come up, said sources, claiming that the third master plan that Singapore will submit to the state government very soon will indicate the new relaxed FSI. As a matter of fact, there is paucity of land in AP, especially in the core or seed capital region and it is imperative that there is relaxation in the FSI as compared to the existing building bye-laws in the rest of the state, Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) commissioner, N Srikanth, said, adding that the third master plan to be submitted by Singapore will indicate the different FSIs to be followed in different zones like residential, administrative, education, business. In fact, the Smart Government Complex, which will house the secretariat, high court, and other important buildings, will also comprise 60-storeys, added the sources.
