This project has been initiated under the Fort Management Plan.
In 1998-99, the UDRI initiated the formulation of an Association of users and building owners in the Kala Ghoda area of Bombay. Together with the Association, UDRI undertook extensive documentation and mapping of the area together with proposals for how this area could be treated as an Art District. An art festival was organized in Jan 1999 to bring the area into public focus. The funds generated from the festival were used to restore the buildings and street furniture in the area. The UDRI co-ordinated the physical interventions and improvement schemes in the area.
