Surbana Jurong’s India team has reached a major milestone with the completion of the vision plan for the Orange Smart City project in Maharashtra, India.

Orange Smart City is a 1,000-acre greenfield smart city development on the outskirts of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. This smart city project’s strategic location and excellent connectivity make it an ideal destination for investments, innovation, tourism and living. The development has a target population of 300,000 and is set to create 100,000 jobs. The site is separated into four parcels of land connected by proposed elevated corridors.

In developing the vision plan, the team has continuously innovated through stakeholder surveys, feedback and an extensive study of existing parks. Many factors including land allotment, urban design guidelines and sustainability standards have been considered to ensure that the execution, operation and maintenance of the Orange Smart City project will proceed in line with the vision.
