‘Olympic City’ planned around Noida Airport

If the proposed Master Plan-2041 presented to the Board of the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) becomes a reality then the region surrounding the Noida International Airport will soon have a 500 hectare park on the lines of New York’s famous Central Park, an ‘Aerotropolis’ like New Delhi’s Aerocity and an ‘Olympic City’.

The master plan, presented to the Board of the YEIDA, shows the proposed planning of the region along the 165-km length of the Yamuna Expressway near Noida. YEIDA, which functions under the Uttar Pradesh government, manages the land and development works along the expressway.

“The area of the Aerotropolis is 10,542 hectares out of which airport area is 4,752 hectares, and the remaining area is 5,790 hectares. It is a multi-modal commercial core. It will accommodate corporate suits, flex offices, business meetings, support services, retail and airline services etc,” the plan noted.

The plan stated that an ‘Olympic City’ will be developed in two parts — one will be Olympic Park and the other will be Olympic Village which would spread over 390 hectares and 52.4 hectares, respectively.

The master plan also proposed a ‘Central Business District’, defining it as a new zone expected to create “a high density district with a distinct character and a clearly identifiable urban form”.

The region is also estimated to inhabit 41.7 lakh people by 2041, and to cater to this growth there will be a need of eight lakh homes, 1,200 hectares of commercial space and 4,000 hectares of industrial land, the proposed plan stated.

The upcoming Noida International Airport remains the focus point of the master plan, the area surrounding which is being developed with commercial and residential facilities.
