Iconic Lokmat building in Nagpur gets cool makeover; painting underway

Lokmat-Building-4Nagpur: Some consider it as a “stationary Titanic” while other dubs it as the first, and the only one till now, tallest building in Nagpur. Standing tall against the times at the central location of Ramdaspeth, Lokmat building, called as Lokmat Bhavan, has been the structural landmark, not only for Nagpur but also for those visiting the city for availing medical treatment. Many major hospitals surround this iconic building which makes it easier for commuters and outstation visitors to reach the area famed as Lokmat Square. Now this building is all set to get the much required facelift, as the work to paint this mega structure is underway.

The present colour of the Lokmat Building is steel grey with dark blue paint on the elevated portion.

While speaking to Nagpur Today, Chief of Lokmat Building Owners’ Association Wing Commander Bora confirmed the development saying that the building is being repainted after 11 years. After a lot of deliberations and discussions with the members of the Lokmat Building Owners’ Association, this work of face-lift is being undertaken.

They got a lot of samples on glossy sheet and finally settled on this colour.

Wing Cdr Bora claimed that the paint that they have decided is Jotun Weather Shield Paint. The base colour is said to be Cream while other borders and ridges will be painted with two colours in the Blue family and Green Family.

With this face-lift, the façade of Lokmat Building will become more attractive.

After short-listing many, a company called Colour Solutions have been shortlisted to undertake the contract of painting this building.
