New Town Kolkata
2012
Kolkata, India

The 60,000 m2 Kolkata Tower, for the Kolkata municipality, is located in the fast developing East side district of the city.
The scheme provides office accommodation on 35 levels.
The scheme is formed out of the conflux of the Central Park to the rear of the site and the man-made landscape of ‘words’ to the front.
This approach creates a tower that is recognisably iconic yet site specific and rational to build, with a podium which gives human scale.  

 

 

The tower will be 45 stories high with offices and a hotel, with public gardens and a rooftop restaurant.
The lower podium level will be used as a shopping complex and will also contain the multiplex, conference facilities and restaurants. 
Smaller scale retail units are placed along the rear and side elevations of the podium to provide human scale with an active frontage facing into the Central Park Area.
