    Oppertunities Threats

    Connected to the site that continued for 40 years.A linear stretch available(easier for market segragation and circulation.The fort wall being strong back drop for the market.3 access available to the site.

    The abandoned tem-ples on site could further enhance the existing social spheres in the market.Being in dialogue with the proposed commercial building the scope of the market could be widened.

    Major part of the market fails to get the river for its frontage.Bound by the walls, growth of the market is being restrictive.

    Could bring damages to the fort wall.The disconnect from the warer body would bring discomfort to the market during summers.Incase of market being gentrified in totality the vendors will lose a greter set of the buyers of todays market.
