Lavasa is a private, planned city being built near Pune. It is stylistically based on the Italian town Portofino, with a street and several buildings bearing the name of that town. A 25,000 acres (100 km2) or 8,000 acres (32 km2) project being developed by HCC, this as-yet-incomplete city has been controversial for multiple reasons including procurement of land. Overall goal and vision of the Master Plan is to create a world–class hill city that will promote new economy in a remote and backward area of the state, offering high quality facilities and environment for living. This would be achieved by harnessing the natural assets of the place and without adversely impacting the environment.
Lavasa is planned for a permanent population of around 2 lakh residents and a tourist inflow that is envisaged at 20 lakhs per annum. It is the first Indian city being developed using Geographical Information System (GIS). Lavasa when completely built will have 5 towns - Dasve, Mugaon, Dhamanohol, Sakhari, Wadavali and the Central Business District (CBD).
Lavasa is a prime offering from HCC, with a level of city infrastructure yet to be experienced in India, thus setting new benchmarks in planning, construction and service delivery. With all urban advantages in a natural setting, Lavasa is envisioned to be a more liveable city of the future where residents can live, work, learn and play in harmony with nature.
