Amaravati: The Amaravati Assembly building, the iconic structure of the capital city , is coming up in a massive extent of 160 acres. Of this, 140 acres is being dedicated to green lawns and water ponds. The structure will come up in the remaining 20 acres. The assembly building will have a total space of 5 lakh sft.
The entire assembly premises will be beautifully landscaped with the rarest flower gardens and water fountains. “It should be core to the iconic structure. There is no need to compromise on the issue,” said chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who reviewed the progress of the capital city projects with senior officials on Wednesday .
He said all structures in the government complex, including the Amaravati assembly and secretariat, should provide the best working environment besides creating work stations.
He asked the officials to focus on transport connectivity in the capital after finalizing designs for the structures.”Public transport system is the key facility that needs to be put in place,” he said.
The AP government had already signed MoU with the Singapore Consortium to build the core capital and had even assigned the land for the startup area. The Singapore Consortium and the State government would together develop this startup area and sell the open spaces and built up areas to raise funds for the construction of the Government City.
Having completed the initial process of signing MoU with the Singapore Consortium, the State government is now focusing on the Government City, which it wants to give a shape before going for the next round of elections.
