The builders should move away from these "building blocks" architecture to something modern. These are stereotypical 1970s design.

My thoughts exactly.. Even hanoi and saigon, with all the wars they had to withstand have far more contemporary look skyscrapers than mumbai. Navi mumbei which is supposedly new has the ugliest dated designs I have ever seen.

Ahh Suncity you beat me lol.

Yep its Phoenix Towers alright at the former Phoenix Mills now part of the Phoenix Mall complex.

I agree with Monyaam & Mookada that these towers could have been made to look much better.

I think the design is cool, but the materials used makes it look old. Imagine if Phoenix towers were completly clad in, say, dark black glass. The shape and look of the buildings would have been quite striking.

The pics are nice even in the evening.
What's up with the Greco-Roman style architecture
I'm guessing that some of these towers are 40+ stories high?

Tulsi Pipe road extends from Lower parel in the south (and not the racecourse), to Mahim, which lies further north.
The race course is on Lala Lajpathrai road (west), with an alternate car park + entrance, east of the course itself. The road on the east (with the Essar, ICICI head offices) is called K.R.K Marg.

Nice pics, Sudheeshnair. Thanks for the updates.
