Hi All,

After a longtime i am logging in.

Its true there is lots of activity going on in the Diamond Tower Project Site. A big site office has been erected on the J L Nehru Road Side and the 4 storeyed building on the back side on the left hand corner is right now under the jack hammers. I have taken a pic of the building.

BTW Fountain Court is still there intact.

Link to the pic.

The only thing about the project is that news article.

Present status of the plot at Darbhanga House-Chowringhee

Had the chance to click some pics showing the present status of the plot nestled in between Tata Centre and Jeevan Sudha (LIC) buildings, on the Chowringhee Road. This is the plot where the tallest tower of Kolkata is supposed to come up. A site office has been built up by Diamond Group (as can be seen from the first pic here).The site presently has two entrances,one from the Chowrighee Road and on at the backside (beside Jeevandeep building) on Middleton Street.

1)The Site office



2) The building adjacent to Fountain Court (on Little Russel St) has been pulled down (on the extreme right side of the pic)

Thanks for being the only one who bothered to go to the site. And why did someone say they saw construction going on?

Anyway just resize the pics to make it easier to see -

Anyway. The site from Google Earth -



(I don't know if that building is on the site. In the render it shows in gone and something else is on the same spot)
Here is a more recent Google earth image from Jan -

I doubt this will ever be built, but I came across this render. Felt it was worth another look since she is a beauty:



Looks like Lerch Bates were going to (or still might) be the elevator consultants for this project.

The Diamond group tower!

A The Statesman report:

‘Tallest tower’ plans hit KMC roadblock
26 November 2010

KOLKATA, 26 NOV: Plans to build what was billed to be the city’s tallest tower ran into trouble today with the mayor Mr Sovan Chatterjee claiming the Kolkata Municipal Corporation has not sanctioned any plan to set up the 60-plus storeyed high-rise on Jawaharlal Nehru Road.
Speaking at a Press conference at his office this afternoon, Mr Chatterjee said a real estate consortium has started marketing a project to set up the high-rise without any sanctioned plan and requisite permission of the KMC. The Diamond Group-led consortium, that includes Mani Group and Sattva Group, had in 2008 announced plans for constructing the tallest tower in the city, with a height of 250 metres, next to Tata Centre on JL Nehru Road. The proposed building is planned to have about 54 floors, with a helipad on top, plus a sky garden, restaurants and viewing galleries.
The mayor said that it has been brought to his notice that the consortium has already printed brochures and distributed these among prospective clients. It had even published advertisements in newspapers. He said to stop this “unethical” practice they have written to the police commissioner and secretary of the municipal affairs department so that legal action can be taken. He warned that the KMC could demolish the building if the consortium starts the project without the sanctioned plans. He said that they are not against the project as such, but before it is allowed to go ahead, many factors need to be investigated, including fire safety and structural stability.
In a statement issued in response, the Mani Group stated that the proposed project had been considered favourably by the building committee, the mayor-in-council and the state government, and “sanction is only awaiting structural vetting by the IIT”. It also said that it was clearly mentioned in the flyers prepared for the project that a building permit is still awaited.

While all this is nice to hear - that we have a proactive mayor, let the Mayor show sum guts and enforce the laws and demolish the fire hazard building called Nandaram Market.
