The east side of the city is all set to get smart. Starting early next year, two new infrastructure projects offering 8,000 flats are coming up in Karkardooma and Trilokpuri. To be built on TOD (transit-oriented development) guidelines, both the projects will give commercial as well as residential spaces. While the Karkardooma project will have 5,000 flats, at Trilokpuri where the flats will come up right opposite Sanjay Lake, 3,000 will be up for grabs. Also tagged as smart cities, the complexes will be built near metro stations and will have landscaped parks and green areas. The buildings, too, will be totally green with complete recycling of waste, including plastic.
The projects are being undertaken by National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC), a PSU. They will be completed in five years, said NBCC head Anoop Kumar Mittal.
