A crash course in changing the world.
To develop a sustainable city with world
class infrastructure and to create an
ecosystem for innovation leading to
economy, ecology and social cohesion.
Nanocity spans 11138 acres of flatland located just beyond
the foothills of the Himalayas. It is less than 25 kms east of
Chandigarh and just over 200 kms north of Delhi. Two
seasonal rivers form the eastern and western borders of the
city and two streams trickle within its boundaries. It is well
connected by National highway- 73 ( NH-73 ) and State
highway-1 ( SW-1). It is a public/private partnership between
Sabeer Bhatia Group and the Haryana State Government.
1) Greencity: Uses context as opportunity, promotes a lush and shaded climate-sensitive environment, encourages the expansion of local natural systems, and advances ecologically intelligent and sustainable design. Half of the land will thrive as a green open space. Grassy frontages, green belts, courtyards, walking trails and public parks will contribute to the all – natural vibrancy of the city. Tree lined boulevards will offer shaded, climate sensitive environments. The urban infrastructure will be ecologically intelligent and sustainable by outfitting the buildings with energy efficient systems and renewable energy sources.
2) Flexcity: Creates an adaptable and evolving framework that is flexible over time, responds to changing needs, and adjusts to future uses and patterns of growth. A city will not reach its full potential overnight and for this reason, Nanocity has been planned to emerge in incremental phases. This will ensure the completion of high-quality, dependable infrastructure. This gradual method of build-out will also allow the city to be flexible and responsive to new conditions and changing needs over time.
3) Complexcity: Proposes a city of mixed use districts, encourages a dynamic sequence of neighborhoods and open spaces, defined unique nodes of density and character, and linked by efficient systems of transportation. Nanocity will provide diverse, hybrid spaces that cultivate creativity through their unique nodes of character. This will be evident in the different types of residential options and housing accommodations available. The function of each district will determine its spirit.
