Across the canvas of the vibrant but congested Bhendi Bazaar will come alive the grand vision of Saifee Burhani Upliftment Project (SBUP). With the sole intention of creating a milieu, the project will realize the dreams of its residents, both commercial & residential, to live life to its fullest potential with better standard of living and holistic growth.
This ambitious redevelopment project comprising of 16.5 acres of landform has approximately 250 existing buildings, 1250 shops and 3200 families. All of these will be incorporated into a state-of-the-art sustainable development with new buildings, wide roads, modern infrastructure, more open spaces and highly visible commercial areas. The mosques and religious structures will be retained and enhanced to add to the culture of the place.
The project is being planned to meet the present and future socio-economic needs of the people. Master Planning of the area is being done using ‘best principles’ of Urban Planning to create a development which serves as a model for the city. People, their needs, the community and business interests along with an aesthetic design and urban principles were the brief given by SBUT to develop the Master Plan. The neighbourhood has been divided into 9 sub-clusters for better management and functionality. Almost 80% of the land mass will be used for rehabilitating existing tenants. Fatimid styling of the buildings at the street, neighbourhood and city level will mark the project. Arches, jallis and lattice work will weave a distinct identity for the neighbourhood.
The new transformed place will create a modern urban area that will not only set a precedent to urban renewal projects in Mumbai; but also provide impetus for other urban renewal projects in India, and throughout the world.
The Late His Holiness Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (RA) envisioned uplifting the environs of the Bhendi Bazaar area to offer its occupants excellent living conditions and a conducive business environment, backed by state-of-the-art infrastructure and modern facilities.
The name – Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust, combines the Late Dr. Syedna’s (RA) name with his revered father, Dr. Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA). The project is inspired by the commitment and affection of both the Dai’s to the community they jointly led through the sweep of the twentieth century.
