The area of study consists of diverse physical, biological, and cultural characteristics. Being one of the very few open lands in Vasai, it is under a threat of destruction in the form of different project proposals. The purpose of this research is to preserve the wetlands and the original biodiversity of the area while adding a new perspective to the future growth of the place. Saving the wetland gives rainwater its home, successively saving the abutting urban areas and established developments from flooding. The goal is to develop a land capability map for Vasai based on its ecological feasibility and to derive land suitability for future buildable areas within the constraint of the semi-open hydrological network. Based on the observations and a comprehensive understanding of the land conditions of the area, this thesis aims to build a community and a skill development centre that engages the general user groups sufficiently; providing a positive impact on their well-being through the qualities of the built environment. And in due course, enhance a sense of attachment between the people and the place that will assist with the conservation of the open fields around Suncity-Gass road in the future. Thus, making it difficult for any authority to vandalize it.
