A new city, with a workspace comparable to Hyderabad’s, will soon be developed on the outskirts here. Further down Gachibowli and Financial District on the west of Hyderabad, the new city of Kokapet will accommodate a workforce of 5 lakh on its 90-million-sq ft workspace. To put this in perspective, the entire city of Hyderabad has a workspace of 110 million sq ft.


Speaking about this for the first time, principal secretary of the Municipal Administration and Urban Development department Arvind Kumar told the editorial team of The New Indian Express that the new city would be developed keeping in mind the lessons learnt from the misplaced development of Hitec City. At the moment, Hitec City has become such a headache for the State government that it plans to rework the region and include the missing links, Kumar revealed.


With a favourable order from the Supreme Court, the government has gone ahead with clearing 166 acres of land for the development of Kokapet. Around 250-to-300 acres of HMDA land are also available. Apart from a network of roads, the city will have proper underground stormwater drains and a sewerage network. All cables will be underground and roads will be 36 m or 45 m wide, he said.
