PURBACHAL BESTWAY CITY
Making New Dhaka a truly human-scale walk able city. The city is designed around the pedestrian, not the car or the buildings.
Keeping local scale small – allowing neighborhoods do grow together into meaningful communities.
Utilizing a form of the one-for-one business model and an Open Source architectural drawings library, New Dhaka is ready to give back.
Chairman & CEO of the Bestway Group
“Bestway Group is not just a regular business venture, we are a promoter of good living.
Our aim is not just to be a corporate powerhouse but a harbinger of better living standards by providing & satisfying the needs and requirements of human beings on this planet.”
We have boiled it down to 5 elements:
A New Business District
Our economic foundation is that all levels of commerce are welcome and encouraged to flourish, from the street vendor to international firms.
An easily expandable prefabricated modular solution to the critical component of proper sewage, water and power distribution. Once installed there is no further need to excavate for maintenance or repair, eliminating road closures that snarl traffic and services.
Also known as ‘Smart Growth’, is the urban planning concept that concentrates the city in easily walkable areas while reducing infrastructure sprawl.
The canopy on the NDWalkway acts as a large funnel, directing the rain water into reservoirs.
We propose using the current technology in use in India to filter and distributes the harvested water through public dispensing machines, similar to a bank’s ATM.
Pre-Fab Market stands
Using standard 10′ shipping containers, easily converted to independent, securable and powered market stands, New Dhaka welcomes the street merchant to become part of the city fabric.
The New Dhaka Urban Research Institute will host an annual international conference, DhaCon, on urban planning to explore and discuss the latest trends, with a special emphasis on developing countries.
