Larsen and Toubro Campus


Size - 80 Acres

The Project emerged out of the need to re-structure the Powai Campuses of L&T due to the planned progressive shift of their Heavy Engineering Works out of Mumbai - to be replaced by IT-related businesses.

An Urban Design Project Report was prepared for a Future Possibilities exploration focusing upon the following :

• Recognizing the iconic identity of The L & T Campus as being the “Gateway” that marks the transition between the East-&-West of this region of Greater Mumbai.
• Creating a Sense of Place out of the transition of a Heavy-Engineering & Machinery-driven campus to one that will cater to the Service Industry with over 10,000 young people.
• Identifying and Articulating opportunities across the campus, its location, unique geographical terrain for enhancing it’s connect externally with the city, and internally for its people.
• Seeking avenues to maximize consumption of its Latent buildable FSI – within the parameters recognized above.
• Balancing all forms of external city – connected transportation and internal low-energy / no-energy pathways.
• Ensuring that even incremental development will – at any interim stage – be recognized  as being finite in itself.
• Keeping over 70% of the Campus Green – with inherent sustainable & recycling systems, and being future-ready.

This formed the basis of a blue-print for the development of over 250,000 sq M, across over a decade of growth.
