Diwali 2012 opening date looks ambitious. Also the design is very similar to South City.

However the Progress rate is not bad. Even if they cant meet the Diwali deadline they'll be close to that.
They are from the same architect so may be a similarity of the interior structure. But in any case it is much smaller than South City & often a marked difference is noticed between renders & actual so I guess it will not be as similar as the renders suggest.

What is that Gitanjali stadium beside Acropolis used for? Is it owned by any particular sports body for their athletes or is it open for public use?

P.S. I know this is off topic. I'm only asking because it is so prominent in the renders and photo updates...

It was developed jointly by PPP between KMDA & Merlin group. It is owned by KMDA & is for hire for junior level sports.
