The authority is constructing an 18-hole golf course in Sector 151A along the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway. The authority has already finished administrative and cafeteria structures and is now accelerating the landscaping work.

In June 2021, the authority hired a private agency to develop the golf course, and this will be the second golf course developed by the government — the first 18-hole golf course in Sector 38A was set up in the 1990s.

According to officials, the authority approved a tentative budget of 90 crore for developing the golf course at Sector 151A during its 198th board meeting in February 2020. The project includes a 90-acre golf course, a 20-acre adventure sports facility, and a 10-acre heliport.

The Noida authority in February 2015 started work on a 477 crore state-of-the-art green building project in Sector 96. The project was supposed to be ready by 2019. But the authority missed multiple deadlines in the past. The authority had planned to build two buildings — an 18 storey one and an eight-storey one.

In October 2022, the authority hired a new contractor for the construction work as the previous one delayed the project. Around 70% of the project has been completed so far, said officials.
