Mumbai, Feb. 8 -- Mumbai mayor's new bungalow is proposed to be a three-storey structure built in the Indo-Saracenic style, a mix of Indian and colonial architecture with sloping, gabled roof and big windows, across a 2,745-sqm plot next to Dadar Chowpatty at Shivaji Park. The design will be finalised soon, after which the municipal architecture department will send it to civic chief Ajoy Mehta.

The new bungalow will be two plots away from the existing bungalow for the mayor at Shivaji Park, which will now be turned into a memorial for the late Shiv Sena founder late Bal Thackeray.

The plot is empty with only a gymkhana for civic employees. As a temporary arrangement, the mayor is staying in a bungalow on the Byculla zoo premises.
