i hear that :-)

this trip was sponsored by citinet, for around Rs 400000 so not a burden on the taxpayers as such. and it also had people like bina balakrishnan who is a transportation expert attached to mesn and ecoplan and members of mumbai transformation support unit

so hopefully its all good.

TOI: Mumbai makeover plan likely to get govt nod soon

Quote:
MUMBAI:The Maharashtra government is considering integrating the island city with its metropolitan region in the proposed Rs 2.25-lakh crore business plan for economic development of Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). Minister of state for urban development Rajesh Tope told the Legislative Council on Wednesday that the state government would approve the business plan once Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) clears it.

The business plan proposes development of infrastructure in the MMR and includes components like road transport, metro railway, skybus, water transport, and upgradation of drains. It estimates private investment to account for more than 60% of the plan size while the government share would come in the form of direct grants and viability gap funding for major projects.

MMRDA’s approval for the business plan, prepared by a Canadian firm Lee Consultancy, is essential since it would be the nodal agency for the plan in the 4,355 sq km long Mumbai metropolitan region. The plan looks at developing small centres of industrial and economic activity in the MMR, thus distributing the benefits of economic prosperity in the entire region.

This is a common refrain of many visitors. They cannot see the connection between the glowing "boom" reports about India in the papers and the ground reality in touristy spots and cheap hotels in the Paharganjes or Sudder Streets of India.

Interestingly I was talking to one of my relatives yesterday who frequently visits Delhi and was pretty impressed by the massive construction going all around. On the other hand I read a report from a "leading international" newpaper where the columnist/economist found that nothing had changed in the last two decades in Delhi since his last visit.

So it could be a matter of perspective and attitude, of what one sees or what one cannot see or what one doesn't not want to see or what one wants to see.

DB realty has put up a new rendering of the DB tower :


clicky

I called DB up to gather more details but the headstrong sales lady didn't want to give away any right now. She said that it'll be a residential project and not a commercial one as we had earlier thought it would be.

I count 61 floors + 3-storey atrium

She couldn't even give height details?


Though with the 4m ceilings, it will be at least 256m tall

At first she played dumb and said there's no such proposed building. I told her about the renderings on the website, ad in the emirates magazine and then she admitted that it's in their pipeline. I asked for more details but she said she couldn't give any right now. In the end, I just asked her to clarify the type of tower to which she said it's residential.


btw, check this out. The construction of the Palais Royale tower is being carried out by SEW Constructions ltd. SRUIL has already contracted out the construction!

15.Construction of Skyscraper at Mumbai, Maharashtra

Construction of Palais Royale building.

Client : Shree Ram Urban Infastructure, Shree Ram Mills Limited, Worli, Mumbai.
Value : Rs. 600.00 millions
clicky

I called SEW up and I spoke with the secretary of the project manager who has set me up for a call at 2:30 IST with the project manager himself. Are there any specific questions you'd like me to ask apart from #of floors, deadline?

Alright I spoke with the project manager of the Palais Royale. He said it'll be 317m tall and will have 55-60 floors. They've finished the foundation work and he said the building will top out by April 2009. I've also sent him an email requesting for a rendering of the tower and images from the site at Worli naka.
