History

Prior to 1940, the area was part of the sea. A popular leader of the Congress, Khurshid Nariman (also titled as Veer Nariman), a Bombay Municipal Corporation corporator, proposed to reclaim the area from the sea near Churchgate. To accomplish this task, debris from various parts of the city was dumped here to fill in the shallows. Reinforced concrete cement was used, of which the imported steel used was obtained from the black market at a higher price due to the World War II. This led to a furore and Nariman was sacked. The entire cost was estimated to be Rs. 3 lakhs or Rs. 300,000 (now Rs. 10 crores or $100,000,000) Additional reclamations were carried out in the 1970s. A construction boom in that decade saw this region spurting many commercial high-rises.
