BENGALURU: THE foundation stone for a sports complex, auditorium and BDA complex at OMBR Layout will be laid next month, said Bengaluru Development Minister K J George.
Taking part in a function to mark the inauguration of a boulevard developed by BDA’s Horticulture wing between Horamavu junction and Banaswadi skywalk on Thursday, George said, “The sports complex will come up at a cost of `20 crore while the complex and auditorium together will cost `17 crore.”

The minister also lauded BDA for not merely developing sites and building flats but also creating flyovers, parks and developing lakes within its own budgetary resources.
K Om Prakash, Assistant Director of the Horticulture wing said, “The boulevard has a 2.5 km walkway and was completed within 10 months. It cost the BDA `1 crore to create this lung space.”
Thirty different species of tree saplings have been planted here, he said. “The need for such an amenity was demanded by the public repeatedly during grievances meets organised by the BDA,” Prakash said.
“The boulevard also has two gazebos (umbrella-shaped stone shelters) under which senior citizens can take rest or yoga practitioners can practise their asanas,” he added.
