The Khans’ architect, Sapre & Associates, submitted a revised amended plan under the city’s new Development Control & Promotion Regulation (DCPR–2034), for a “commercial centrally air-conditioned building with a height of 69.90 meters”.
The city’s lucrative real estate market has always been a safe haven for Bollywood bigwigs to invest their millions and buy marquee properties.
Building plans approved by the BMC and accessed by this newspaper show a 19-storey hotel; the plot once housed the residential Starlet CHS, where the Khans had purchased apartments and had initially planned to redevelop the property into a residential building. However, the family seems to have changed their plans.
It includes three-level basements, the first and second floors for a cafe and restaurant, the 3rd floor for a gymnasium and swimming pool, the 4th floor as a service floor, the 5th and 6th floors for the convention center, and the 7th to 19th floors for hotel use.
