First Amma Theatre complex on Usman Road

Land has been identified for highrise

Chennai Corporation will begin the construction of highrise commercial complexes which will also house Amma Theatres and auditoriums. The first such highrise will be commissioned on Usman Road on Corporation land near the Shiva Vishnu Temple.

“Work on the preparation of a detailed project report for a 12-storey building on Usman Road will be completed shortly. Chennai Corporation has identified a piece of land measuring seven grounds on the stretch for the project. Additional land required for the project may also be identified in other areas,” said an official.

The lower floors will have adequate parking space and shops. The Amma Theatre and auditorium will be housed in the higher floors. Multiple screens for the Amma Theatres will be designed in such highrise buildings. The commercial complex in T. Nagar will house distinctive trades.

Chennai Corporation will also study the structural condition of all the existing 152 shopping complexes to explore the possibility of converting them to highrise commercial complexes.

As many as 6,140 shops are operational in the complexes. The compilation of data on survey number and extent of land of such commercial complexes will be done shortly. Some of the existing commercial complexes are dilapidated. The project report will explore the possibility of highrises that house trades that strengthen welfare initiatives.
