Construction of stage one in Amanora Apartment City has begun in Pune, India with the Future Towers designed by MVRDV, a housing development including residential units, public facilities and parks.

MVRDV starts building the FUTURE TOWERS There is growing demand in India for big housing developments capable of housing thousands of people. MVRDV, the Dutch studio founded in 1993 by architects Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries, won the competition announced in 2009 for construction of a development near the city of Pune. The first phase involves construction of 1068 apartments, included in a total of 3500 apartments, public facilities, green parks and services for social activities. The completion of the vertical city is scheduled for 2014. The architects of MVRDV intend to construct quality housing in a context dominated by the efficiency and monotony of big housing complexes. The plan for the Future Towers is based on analysis of today’s living standards in India, to offer homes that meet the needs of different social categories, from studio apartments to detached family homes.
