CetraRuddy to design luxury condos for Indian resort 

CetraRuddy, the designers of the recently completed One Madison Square tower in New York City, has been awarded a commission to design a luxury high rise residential project and marina in Chochin, a prosperous port city in the South India state of Kerala. The project, to be named Choice Marina, is being developed by the Choice Group, one of the largest conglomerates in India.

The 13-storey two-tower sheme provides for spacious 3-bedroom homes, ranging in size from 3,086 sq. ft. to 3,245 sq. ft. With only two homes per floor, each apartment will occupy its own “tower” with water views in four directions. The units blend Western and Indian sensibilties and feature luxurious elements rarely seen in Indian developments including private elevators and large-windowed master bedrooms with freestanding bathtubs and dressing areas.

In addition to the apartments, Choice Marina will include an exclusive rooftop lounge and pool, outdoor sitting verandas, a private garden, and a seafood restaurant with spectacular water views. The building will be designed for maximum energy efficiency and sustainability.

Construction is slated to begin in early 2009.
