Treesa Babu


Abstract: According to the Development plan of Kochi City Region, the city of Kochi was envisioned as a global city. The current urban sprawl has put a considerable stress on the infrastructure of the city. Hence need for transit oriented development along the corridors connecting the adjacent city centers were emphasized in the CDP [1]. After the metro, which was established along the corridor, the opportunities for TOD have increased. The study was driven based on two research questions: 1. What is the existing growth pattern along the corridor? 2.How can transit oriented development be planned for an organic development? This study explores the potentials of stations along the corridor based on the node, place and market values. The station areas are then classified into different station area typology. The study is based on LAP for Transit framework by CEPT university and Assessing TOD: a list of indicators by National Institute of Urban Affairs. A set of strategies are proposed through the end of the study which is applicable for the entire corridor.
