- For about a year, DIC member and award-winning architect Peter Ellis has been designing a city in India… from scratch. Located just south of Delhi, the new urban area will be home to some 1 million full-time residents. Only, the India government isn’t spending one rupee on the project. Contracted by an Indian family-owned company named Jaypee Group, this city will be the first in history entirely designed, built, and run by the private sector.
The living space is much needed in a country of 1.2 billion people and a population that is expected to double over the next ten years, Ellis said, speaking to the DIC on June 10. It’s also an unprecedented opportunity for Harris School students to study the implications of urban planning and policy.
“I’ve been talking about using this city as a case study to teach students at the Harris School about urban policy,” he explained, announcing a possible joint program with Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) that is still in negotiations. IIT professor George Schipporeit later joined Ellis on panel to further discuss the on-the-ground academic value of the proposed partnership with the Harris School.
Naturally, the private city project raises some deep and serious questions about the role of government, citizens, and competition, among many other issues. Ellis admits he can’t answer them all, but with master plans heading closer to their final stages, he did detail a few attributes of the vision for his coming urban creation.
Accessibility. The city will includes a high-quality public transportation system that can service at least 60 percent or more of the residents, he said. “It has to move faster than a car, too, so people will have incentives to use it as the city grows.”
Green. Streets should feel like parks, Ellis insisted. Already, Jaypee Group has planted some 500,000 trees in the Himalayas that it will move to fill the new city. This includes building city gardens from day one, before even the first building is constructed. “You build the park, you build the nation, you restore nature.”
Energy Efficiency. “You have to create a city that uses 30 to 40 percent less energy than cities today,” Ellis said. At least that will be the requirement for every building built in the Jaypee city. Using conventional buildings in India as the standard, this can be as easy as using better insulation and installing good windows.
Vibrant Districts. Ellis said the same impulses that created American suburbs in the 1950s—including space and lower cost—will drive the new city’s growth. But unlike the suburbs, the Jaypee city will not incorporate low-density sprawl. Picture 6- to 8-story buildings, almost European in scale of density, he said.
Beauty. Incorporating a sense of serenity and spirituality into a functioning city is easier said than done, though it is the highest mark for any architect, he adds. “That is the greatest goal of all art and the holy grail of design that we hope we get to.”
Ellis said he hopes to start building the parks by the end of this year.

Its NOT 20 Towers in 100 Acres
I have checked with all brokers...they all say....100 acres include the Plot area around it. But no one is clearly telling the Exact Area
From whatever i could see on their model and plan...it looks like around 40 acres for appartment area
Its very imp. for me...becasue 20 (2500 appartments) towers in 40 acres is Nothing Great
if anyone has exact info..please share

- Any noida person pls update the construction status....CommentQuote0Flag
- Increase in activity..
I've been monitoring KBA for the last 2 months and I must say that over the past 2-3 weeks there's lot of activity on the ground.
Excavations (for towers) are going on in full swing and the ground around it (for plots) is being leveled.
Met with the Jaypee folks and as per them construction is going as planned and would be completed by Dec 2013.
I'm no construction expert so can't comment but I'm really glad to see some buzz on the ground.CommentQuote0Flag
