Dec '17
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will start building the city’s first textile museum in February to document and archive Mumbai’s textile legacy. It will be built over 16.3 acres at the defunct United Mill compound in Kalachowki in Chinchpokli. BMC recently held a pre-bid meeting for the project’s first phase and tenders will be floated soon.

Landscaping around a lake inside the compound and construction of an amphitheatre, a seating area overlooking the lake and a cafeteria are part of the first phase of the project, which will also include a musical fountain atop the lake and a laser show showcasing the old days of Girangaon, a top Indian daily reported.

A group of students from the JJ School of Arts in Mumbai has been roped in to design the architecture of the museum. (DS)
