Chennai Central revamp: 10 realtors evince interest

Around 10 real estate developers, including a Japanese company, have shown interest in the Indian Railways’ station re-development programme for Chennai Central railway station. Representatives of the companies attended a pre-bid meeting organised by Southern Railway on Friday.

The area around the station is going to be developed in sync with the Central Square which is being planned by Chennai metro rail (CMRL).

The license fee earned from this will be used to build better passenger amenities in the station.
