Mysuru: The new Devaraja Market will have ample parking space, two floors of shops, but the heritage look of the structure will be retained, according to Mayor B.L. Bhyrappa.

The Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) wants to create a multi-level parking facility at the new market, which is also proposed to have two floors, instead of one. The task force had recently recommended the demolition and reconstruction of the market.

The task force report, however, has to be accepted by MCC as well as the State government. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, during his recent visit to Mysuru, had stated that the government firmly believes that the market, which is over 130 years old, has to be demolished. The city corporation, at its council meeting scheduled for Tuesday, is likely to discuss the report and adopt a resolution, Bhyrappa said.

The mayor also stated that while MCC will begin reconstructing the market as soon as possible, the vendors in the market would be temporarily moved to J.K. Grounds. MCC will request the government to prevail upon the Mysuru Medical College and Research Institute authorities, under whose purview J.K. Grounds falls, he said.

While Devaraja Market’s fate is almost decided, the MCC is also looking forward to the task force report on Lansdowne Building. The restoration work on the building was stopped following the collapse of a portion of Devaraja Market.
