Bashundhara City context
« on: March 10, 2015, 11:17:25 AM »
The site of Bashundhara City lies in between 2 major transportation routes (Airport Road at its west and Mirpur Road on its east) which links Motijheel - the old CBD and the burgeoning Northern part. Location-wise Bashundhara City is in the central position with respect to the existing and projecting developments and has the potentiality to become the ultimate growth centre of this area and lessening the burden of pressure on the over congested areas. The B-City site serves all the prerequisites for an international level Shopping development ranging from the easy accessibility to strategic location of surrounding thriving commercial developments.
The site by the side of the Panthapath Road and SAARC Fountain Crossing for the proposed B-City is of great commercial importance. As with the commerce and manufacturing industry, the locational trend has been northwards of Dhaka with significant concentrations emerging in the Pan Pacific Sonargaon hotel/Karwan bazaar area, Panthapath Link from Karwan Bazaar to Mirpur Road, Tejgaon and Banani-Gulshan. The site also has the potential to be linked or incorporated with many projected road network segments for development either by RHD or RajUK as proposed in the Dhaka Metropolitan Development Planning (DMDP) for 1995-2015. The proposed Eastern Bypass so extended would be capable of linking to the proposed Bashundhara City to its east through Panthapath Link.
