The APCRDA will finalise the contractors in three days and the procurement process will commence this week.
Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu approved the APCRDA’s proposal on HAM at a review meeting at the Secretariat on Wednesday.
Under the model, the government will provide some portion of the project cost to the developer to start work and the remaining has to be borne by the developer.
Mr. Naidu asked the Municipal Administration Department to take up the developmental activities in 29 villages of Amaravati. He suggested to the officials to take up sanitation and construction of roads in these villages under the MGNREGS.
The CRDA officials, in a presentation, said plans were being made to construct judicial, executive and legislative buildings in an extent of 1.47 crore sq ft. The construction would be completed in three years at an estimated cost of ₹11,602 crore, they said, adding that the developers would maintain them for seven years.
HAM ensures access to sufficient private capital and high-quality service and maintenance. Under HAM, the progress of a project is linked to both physical and financial milestones that guarantee on-ground development, they said.
Representatives of Foster & Partners will meet the Chief Minister on September 11 to present the final designs of the government complexes.
Hafeez Contractor & Aarvee presented an alternative design for the façade of the Legislative Assembly building.
The Chief Minister instructed them to forward the designs to F&P, and arrive at a final design.
The bid evaluation is in process for the Chief Minister’s residence and Raj Bhavan, and the architect will be confirmed in one week.
Referring to the Sakhamuru Regional Park, Lakshmi Parthasarathi, MD of Amaravati Development Corporation, said the seed access roads, the boundaries, and the land for the park were ready for plantation. Based on the Chief Minister’s suggestions, the R&D team have finalised the varieties of plants for the park. Mr. Naidu asked the officials to finalise the plantation programme in the second week of September. “The park, coming up in an extent of 280 acres, must be developed with creativity and efficiency,” he said.
