If you are speaking of the above project then that is also my question.

However Mumbai does seem to have a high conversion rate from proposals to reality in case of private buildings. The number of highrise buildings under construction is pretty impressive (although the designs may not be).

Is the question the international community will now be asking, again
Is the Bandra Kurla complex also social housing ?.IE stuff that the developers have no vested interest in doing well?If its purely private than they can make their money back without fucking people up.

Not to raise hopes but here is something for the weekend. While this may or may not be true, it is obvious that builders are at least thinking tall.

Shreepati group, being the guys behind Shreepati Arcade, are known for thinking big. This one is probably a bit more likely than you think, considering the construction company's track record.

With Shreepati Arcade, they definately thought outside the box to get that building built. Reza Kabul's work (well, post Shreepati Arcade onward) is pretty good. Can't wait to hear more about this project

has an article on the new draft housing code. Well worth a read:
CW Special Report: Shelter
The government of Maharashtra's housing policy is a step in the right direction, but whether it can solve Mumbai's housing woes is debateablel

What is the present permissible FSI in Mumbai? Isn't it in the range of 3-4?

The report says outside municipal areas, the FSI is increased from 0.5 to 1!! To me it appears as little ridiculous. What is the issue in having FSI/FAR of 3 which can be increased up to 4 like in whole of Kerala? (Anyway present Govt of Kerala seems thinking backwards when they plan to reduce it to 2.5 or so. Already in Kochi corporation area it is rolled back to 1.5 citing infrastructural constraints. Thankfully no such issue in Trivandrum corporation so far since infra is o.k.)


I feel in CBD of Mumbai FSI is high, say 3-4, otherwise how is 30-40 floors possible?. See, in the page posted by Jai, there is some 25 floor slender building in a very small land area. Defnitely the FSI is around 4, if not more.

the fs in the island city is 1.33, in suburbs 0.5 or 1.0. the slender buildings are built thanks to tdr where old buildings are allowed to be reconstructed with theoretically infinite fsi

Yes, those tall thin buildings are becoming a Mumbai feature.

One of the costliest condos in Mumbai?

Holy crap! Three towers of 65 stories each and that too in Andheri!

It does look like a prerendering/proposal though. I sincerely hope the building designs themselves are not finalized. Such signiature towers shouldn't look so... bland. Though the plan overlaid on the ground seems to suggest that they would have interesting lanscaping.

On second thought, if the blue is glass and not concrete, than it should look decent, though uninteresting. If it were concrete, what a shame!


Any idea who the builder and/or architect is? Where'd you find this Sun?

Sun..................thanks. 3 x 40F. wow!!

Jai....................Looks like they are preliminary designs in a working stage. Hopefully, soon we'll get to see final renderings. The thing with Bombay is, the builders/designers cooperate well and act fast unlike other cities in India.

Hmm... you're right. I see where I messed up in count... each floor vertically sectioned off in two parts in the facade. That's rather odd design.

35 stories it does seem to be. I really shouldn't count floors in the dark right after getting up in the morning. I'll edit my post to not get people's hopes up who are reading the thread

jai, you may not be wrong, if they are indeed duplexes throughout the building. many new buildings are coming up offering only duplexes

it would seem silly to have linear structures spoiling the view from every window
