Now don’t you worry about parking your car in south Mumbai

because there is lot of parking space, just for You.

It is a 20-story technology marvel built at a cost of Rs20 crore in 1056 square meters and has 12 car parking bays and has a capacity of parking 240 cars.

The new automated robotic car parking system has been installed in Breach Candy just a month ago.

You only have to drive to the entry point of the car park where you will be given a swipe card. You leave the car at the foyer on the ground floor from where robotic lift would lift the car and park it at a vacant spot. The entire system is automated and requires no human element except giving the swipe card. There are two lifts in the car park that can move both horizontally and vertically, each of which can carry one car at a time. The computerized system detects a vacant parking spot and the lift places the car at that spot.

The entire process of parking and retrieving the car requires only 90 seconds.
The car park has a built-in safety back-up. There is a dual lift system installed in the building as a back-up which would be operational in the rare case of a lift becoming non-functional.

In April 2003, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had floated bid for an automatic car park to be built at Bhulabhai Desai Road, Breach Candy, as a potential car-parking solution. The plot initially had 40-car parking spaces and was managed by the Mahalaxmi Welfare Centre.Akruti Nirman Limited, which bagged the contract on Built-Operate-and-Transfer (BOT) basis, has now completed the project and the 20-storey automatic car park would become operational next month.

Akruti Nirman Limited will operate the car park for five years and then hand it over to the BMC.

The technology and equipment for the robotic car park has been provided by German company-Wohr Parking Systems, which is one of the foremost manufacturers of mechanical

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
