Living Amidst Nature

JP Infra introduces the first Urban Forest in a residential township

JP Infra introduces the first Urban Forest in a residential township in Mumbai using the Miyawaki technique.

Real estate developer JP Infra Mumbai is using the Japanese technique of Miyawaki forest to raise a natural urban forest within the ~11,000 sq.ft premises in its project, JP North Garden City (NGC), on Mira Road. There will be a plantation of more than 3200 trees of 52 varieties of plant species.

As the first developer in Mira-Bhayandar to incorporate an urban forest as an integral part of its project, JP Infra is promoting various environmental and green initiatives toward sustainable living. It is collaborating with Afforestt, an enterprise whose mission is to bring back lost forests, using the Miyawaki technique for planting trees that grow into a 30-times denser forest in just two to three years. The technique consists of six steps that begin with a survey of the soil to assess physical texture, organic carbon, soil pH, and other factors. It also helps to lower the temperature, make the soil nutritious, support local wildlife, and improve air quality by lowering the carbon footprint.

JP North Garden City includes an urban forest and 16 lifestyle themed gardens such as Fruit Garden, Herbs & Spice Garden, Zen Garden, Butterfly Garden, Maze Garden, Sensory Garden, Senior Citizen Garden, Yoga/ Meditation Garden, Community Garden, and more. The planned green spaces will be the critical places for social well-being and integration. This forest of life has the most authentic mix of indigenous species, which means, that as the forest grows all forms of life will start coming back to it including birds, bees and butterflies, which are otherwise not seen in urban spaces due to loss of their host trees.

People are increasingly seeking properties that lay emphasis on green practices as it is important to coexist and build a correlation with nature. The urban forest will help curb pollution and provide the residents clean air and a calm and noise-free space.

With more than half of India’s 2030 building stock yet to be built, the real estate industry has enormous potential to go green and reduce the ever-increasing operational energy requirements to reduce carbon emissions. And JP Infra Mumbai exemplifies the critical role that real estate plays in driving and advancing sustainability. This includes not only energy conservation, but also resource use, environmental impact, and residential living conditions.
