The Sunudugud project constructed a total of 160 houses in the city of Bangalore. In 1998, the Secretary of Housing of Karnataka invited the Municipal Corporation of Bangalore to embark on a pilot slum redevelopment project in partnership with SSNS and Reall. The selected site was an informal settlement named Sunudugud, meaning chalk farm.
In Sunudugud households were originally facing threat of eviction as the settlement was built on private land. After the city municipality acquired the land, SSNS with Mahila Milan Bangalore developed the project and housing construction, as a pilot demonstration for future schemes. During the planning stage, two house model exhibitions were held for the community, which resulted in the tenants agreeing to a multi-storey design that proved essential for reducing costs.
In 2001, the apartment buildings were constructed, and occupants were selected from within the Sunnuduguddu Cooperative Housing Society. The project design also included a society and welfare office, nursery, community hall and shops. The costs of construction were met through the sale of commercial units, which were built on the same site.
