There are two major projects proposed for the Mylapore neighborhood among the many announced by the state government in the state Assembly. These cover housing for the poor and public services.
The state proposes to build anew small apartments in Nochikuppam in San Thome in place of the old ones which are in a bad condition. These flats were build in the 1970s.
The other proposal is to build a underground subway on the beach road to allow people to gain easy access to Marina Beach in the Gandhi statue beach zone.
