The Games Village for 19th Commonwealth Games
The New Delhi Games Village is coming up on the banks of River Yamuna, spread over 158.4 acre.
Located very close to the pristine Akshardham Temple at the Noida intersection, the village will provide traditional
Indian hospitality along with latest options in comfort. The entire village will be surrounded by green natural cover, the village will help provide a relaxing environment for its athletes and officials. Total cost for the Commonwealth Games Village 2010 will be around USD 230.7 million.
The village has 14 blocks and 34 towers having 1168 air-conditioned flats which should be enough to house over 8000 athletes and team officials. The complex will also hold the training areas for athletics, swimming, weightlifting, wrestling and fitness. The location is of prime importance as it's close to some of the most famous landmarks of New Delhi like Bahia Temple, Humayun's Tomb, Akshardham Temple and India Gate.
The Games Village is being developed by Emmar-MGF alliance. After the Games are over, Emmar-MGF will retain 2/3rd flats while the Delhi Development Authority will retain 1/3rd of it in return for the land given. Both DDA and the alliance will be allowed to sell these flats in the open market once the Games are over.
The project was started in August 2007 and the CWG Games Village is expected to be complete by March 2010.
