Lying in neglect for years, Delhi's historic Town Hall is all set to regain its glory, as the area's civic body on Wednesday cleared a proposal to lease out the over 150-year-old heritage landmark to a private player to run a hotel-cum museum.
The standing committee of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) while approving the decision, imposed certain restrictions to ensure that the architectural integrity of the iconic Victorian-era mansion remains intact.
Built in the 1860s, originally known as the Lawrence Institute, the hall was the seat of the Delhi Municipality and is a Grade I structure, the highest ranking for any heritage building that forbids any change in its facade and original design.
