Kasturba Gandhi Marg to have a "green" parking complex

With so much focus on going green, perhaps the next step in green building is the green parking lot.

Traditionally the scene of exhaust fumes, oil leaks and reflective heat, Delhi, India will break ground soon on an amazingly eco-friendly alternative. Kasturba Gandhi Marg – site of Delhi’s famous circular shopping center – will feature a parking lot with a green building, rainwater harvesting, a sewage treatment plans of its own, solid waste management and energy efficient devices. Another amazing feature of this environmentally-friendly parking lot – a state-of-the-art robotic technology that moves cars.

With plans to cover a triangular plot located behind Kasturba Gandhi Marg measuring 66,941 square feet,  it will have 15 levels -twelve overground and three basements, all of which will have parking lots.  The building itself will feature:

  • natural light and lots of fresh air,
  • roof top thermal insulation
  • double-glazed windows to reduce power consumption
  • energy efficient lighting with timers and dimming switches
