Leading real estate developers, including Parsvanath Uppal’s, DLF and EMAAR MGF, and seven other companies, are in the fray for bagging the dream project of Le Corbusier — an 11-storey tower at the heart of the City Centre in Sector 17.
In all, 12 companies had responded to the expression of interest and 10 of them have been shortlisted for the submission of the technical and financial bids.
“The name of 10 private companies have been shortlisted, and the process of calling the technical and financial bids would begin soon. The further shortlisting would be based on the bids,” said senior UT official.

In his masterplan for Chandigarh, Le Corbusier had given special importance to the realisatiom of the 11-storey tower and had stressed on early construction of the building, but the project has been hanging fire even after five decades. While much of the early years of Chandigarh’s existence were devoted on the debates whether e- “such a tall tower” would really be required, in more recent years the n fears were of inadequate parking space and traffic chaos.
As per the plans of the Administration, the 11-storey tower would come up behind the General Post Office on a total area of around 5 lakh square feet. The first four floors will have high-intensity commercial shops, while the remaining would have low-intensity shops. There is also a provision of underground parking.
The companies in the fray are: Parsvanath Developers, AB Movies Pvt Ltd, IJM Infrastructure, DLF Universal Ltd, L&T Consortium, PLL-CFC Consortium, Nagaarjun Constructions Co Ltd, Emaar MGF, UPPAL GGL Consortium, IVRCL Infrastructure and Projects Ltd.
