The Sabarmati Riverfront project is an environmental improvement, social upliftment and urban rejuvenation project that will renew Ahmedabad. The project aims to reclaim the private river edge as a public asset and restore the city’s relationship with its river. The idea for developing the Sabarmati Riverfront is an old one. However, only in 1997 the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) setup a wholly owned Special Purpose Vehicle - the Sabarmati Riverfront Development Corporation (SRFCDL) to explore the project.
