KOLKATA: Coming up off the Hooghly riverfront, hardly 4km away from the state secretariat Nabanna in Howrah would be a new heaven for gourmets in Kolkata.
A 450-feet tall watch tower with a bird’s eye view of Kolkata and Howrah would come up with a revolving restaurant atop, reports The Economic Times.
The 10,000 sq ft facility would be a part of the Bellilious Park and is expected to be functional by mid 2018.
The brainchild of a Kolkata-based real estate company, Panchadeep Construction, the Rs 50-crore project has been designed by civil engineering experts of the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), popularly known as BE College, Shibpur.
“Experts led by professor Saibal Ghosh, the head of the civil engineering department of IIEST, are supervising the construction. It will be India’s tallest revolving restaurant,” said Ratan Chowdhary, the managing director of the company.
