Jaypee Wish Town Master Plan, Agra

Integrated, sustainable township

The Project

Northeast of Agra, one of India’s historic cities and home to the Taj Mahal, the master plan proposes a vibrant sustainable township. Leveraging on its connection to the new, major Yamuna Expressway to New Delhi, the plans will enhance the Agra area as a major tourist destination and support its handicraft and manufacturing industries.

The plans focus on harvesting needs and resuse of rainwater

Native plants will be grown to recreate natural habitats

The Challenge

The plans envisioned an integrated township set in lush greenery with extensive landscaping and green belts. The area’s historic and cultural identity will be strengthened with a wide array of museums, galleries, markets and gardens. There will also be pedestrian friendly networks with less reliance on cars and sustainable designs encouraged.
