15. THE 42

62 fl | 245m | 804ft

The new identity of Kolkata in the making.

Location: J L Nehru Road
Category: Residential
Developer: Mani Group, Sattva Group, Diamond Group & Alcove Realty.
Architects: Hafeez Contractor
Launched: Q3, 2012.
Status: Foundation work to begin. Estimated completion period 40 months.
Project Details:
Christened The 42, the 245-metre-tall building on 42B Chowringhee that once belonged to the Maharaja of Darbhanga is a super-luxury residential project. According to Mani Group CEO Sanjay Jhunjhunwala, who is leading a consortium of four groups to develop the landmark, "The 42, like Dubai's Burj Khalifa, will be the conversation-maker for Kolkata". Alcove and Diamond groups, Kolkata, and Sattva group, Bangalore, make the quartet.

Though the skyscraper's height will be equivalent to an 80-storied building, The 42 will be 62 stories tall, housing 58 bungalow apartments stacked one over the other. The first 4 stories will make up the lobby and three service floors. There will be a six-level car park for 350 cars and each apartment will get six parking slots.

Hafeez Contractor, the architect, feels The 42 will be an iconic structure. "In Kolkata, one is unlikely to get an address more premium than 42B Chowringhee, overlooking the Hooghly, the Maidan, Victoria Memorial, St Paul's Cathedral and Birla Planetarium. It is a picture perfect view, the best one can get in the city," said Jhunjhunwala.

Each floor will house one lavish apartment. Since the Mani Group is also constructing the upscale hotel JW Marriott on EM Bypass, it will also offer the option of fully-furnished bungalows in the sky. While the building will be a neck-wringer for pedestrians measuring it up from street level, it is a huge engineering and technology challenge given the soft alluvial soil and the scale of construction within a confined space between the Tata Centre and Jeevan Sudha buildings. "We have roped in the best national and international consultants to guide us," the Mani Group head said.

Foundation piling began two-and-a-half months ago as per specifications provided by structural and civil engineers at Jadavpur University and IIT-Mumbai. Callison Architects of the US is providing the foundation design. ITD Cementation that is doing the 55-metre piling work will do the foundation as well.

The tower contract is likely to be a toss-up between L&T and Shapoorji Pallonji. Hitech construction technology like system formwork from Peri Germany that enables hydraulic-operated construction platform shutters to move up automatically.

The exterior of the building will be all concrete with no brickwork. The construction cost is pegged at Rs 300 crore & the project is valued at INR 900 - 1000 crores.

16. ATMOSPHERE

39 fl X 2 | 152m X 2 | 499ft X 2

The project that is creating ripples in the world architecture & real estate circles and is currently ranked among the top 3 contenders for the 'People's Choice Awards' to be held @ "WAF" in Barcelona in Nov 2011.

Location: E M Bypass, next to Science City
Category: Residential
Developer: Forum Projects
Architects: Arc Studio, Singapore & Edifice Consultants
Launched: 2011
Status: Pilling work has started. Completion time for the project is End 2013.
Project Details:
Being built on 3 acres of land, Atmosphere is a Rs 550 cr project & an attempt at redefining the term “luxury living”. Atmosphere consists of 2 towers of effectively 39 levels, 500 ft high (152.4 m), 165 ft apart. These towers comprise of 80 villas stacked on top of each other. Ranging in size from 6000 sft to 8750 sft, these villas include both Single Floor Villas and Double Floor Villas. The Outer wing of each tower will house the Double Floor Villas (32 nos, 16 in each tower) while the Inner wing will house the Single Floor ones (48 nos, 24 in each tower). To ensure that all the villas have a great view, the lowest villa begins at the 5th level. Thus the residential stretch occupies till 36th level.

Hanging between the two towers (above the Inner wing) at a height of 400 ft. is "Deya". This suspended structure, a “floating cloud sculpture”, which will be lit up by LED lamps at night and will have a ‘silver lining’ with 15,000 kinetic discs shimmering on its surface, is not just a green roof. Spread over 55,000 sq ft, and spanning across 4 levels, this residents’ club will be the most exclusive club in the country, with only the 80 families that live here as its members. Apart from being an object of art, Deya will house every leisurely activity and recreational facility that one could want attached to one’s home, from multigym, spas, and swimming pools, to party decks, conference rooms and a movie theatre! What’s more there’s even a squash court and a virtual golf course at that height!
