CR2:  Crossroads at Nariman Point

Completion:  2004
Client:  L&T Crossroads Ltd
Area:  5,800 sq m excluding parking

Following the success of Crossroads, the retail and entertainment mall at Tardeo, this second project, dubbed CR2, is a partnership between the Piramal Group and Larsen & Tubro Ltd.  Built on the last significant site in Mumbai's Nariman Point downtown business district, the project is surrounded by office towers and is down the road from the Oberoi Hotel.  A key requirement of the Mumbai Metropolitian Region Development Authority was the provision of a large parking facility to serve not only CR2 but also the neighbouring area.

Retail and F&B outlets are housed on the ground and first floors, while a 1.250 capacity multiplex is on the second floor (third storey).  A double helix ramp takes cars up and down from the lower levels of the car park, which is itself a gently ramped slope.

The building was designed in empathy with our design for Crossroads, thereby reinforcing the client's brand image.  The design uses a mix of glass and aluminium cladding while the parking leves are screened of by a series of expanded metal panels.

In association with Kapadia Associates Pvt Ltd, Mumbai.
