Previous proposal for riverfront- 1976

Efforts at riverfront development are not new to the Sabarmati River. Way back in the 1960s, a French architect Bernard Kohn, who was then residing in Ahmedabad (in collaboration with Kamal Mangaldas, city-based architect, Anil Bakeri, an engineer and a few others) was the first to propose the development of a portion of the Sabarmati Riverfront with a mix of commercial, recreational and residential development along both the banks from Gandhi Bridge to Sardar Bridge.

In 1976, a group of local professionals came together as the River Front Development Group to propose an incremental approach to creating a public riverfront. Thus, there has been a long-standing acknowledgment that the riverfront can be turned into a major urban asset from its present undesirable state.
