Ever since they were renovated three years ago, the zig-zagging St Stephen’s Steps at Bandra’s Mount Mary road have emerged as a prominent public space which frequently comes alive with community gatherings and fun-filled activities. Built on a once-neglected and poorly-maintained slope, the steps were envisioned by Bombay Greenway, a not-for-profit urban design and research platform by Abraham John Architects.
