==========================================================


Elphinstone Mills Tower -- Parel, Mumbai


Finally, renderings have been released for the redevelopment of Elphinstone Mills, Mumbai (Bombay) by developers Indiabulls Real Estate.









One of the first projects announced in a series of redevelopments of former textile mill lands in South Mumbai, the tower will be Mumbai's first purely commercial skyscraper to break ground -- all other skyscrapers being purely residential or mixed residential/hotel. Not only does it herald the next phase of high-quality but infrastructure-intensive commercial skyscraper development in Mumbai, but it is also an indication of what the redevelopment of the massive mill lands and slums in the next 5 years will mean for Mumbai and her booming skyline.

Initially reported to only be 40 stories tall, the height has since been increased to 60 stories. Designed by Chicago based firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, is the latest in environmentally friendly signature towers planned for Mumbai.

According to the architect's website:
Quote:
The 60-story Elphinstone Mills complex in downtown Mumbai includes Class A office space and a pedestrian friendly retail podium. The building is designed to a LEED Platinum standard and will create a new icon in the skyline of Mumbai.

Every floor of the office tower features outdoor terraces and multi-story garden atria, fully integrating the interior workspace with natural elements of the exterior environment. These garden spaces provide tenants with a shaded area for relaxation and socialization; natural light is abundant, while the overhangs simultaneously shade the units below. The building is also oriented to minimize solar gain, decreasing the heating effect of direct sunlight and increasing comfort levels for building tenants.

Each atrium space is connected to a central atrium within the building’s core. Air flows from the exterior environment into this central space, accelerating as it travels down the atrium toward a series of wind turbines, which generate power for the building.
One of the major hurdles facing the construction of major commercial towers in Mumbai, that of uninterrupted power, has been solved with on-site generation and a design that minimizes power consumption and loss. Going totally green may be the way for major skyscraper projects to go in Mumbai, which is yet another boon for the city. The second major hurdle, that of infrastructure, is to be remedied by having the developer offset the cost of infrastructure development adjacent to the site, a requirement of mill land redevelopment. The development of the Mumbai metro and other mass transit projects that will service the mill land region will also contribute to sustainability.

According to Indiabulls, construction of the tower has already started from March 2007, with a completion date of Sept, 2008, but SSC India members cannot independently verify if it has, due to the inaccessible nature of the site. However, it's worth noting that construction Indiabulls's commercial development at its related project at nearby Jupiter Mills is well underway:

Note in the above image all the towers coming up at other mill lands. And these are just the very beginning of the huge mill land redevelopments in store for India's financial capital

Props to spyguy for originally finding and posting the renderings at SSC India

Cheers,
Jai

This article in DNA Mumbai, confirms that this project is now under construction.

Here is the Elphinstone Mills storage site photo (as per Kalyan):


And relevant quotes from the article:
Quote:
Residents of the Elphinstone Road-Lower Parel area say they are paying for the re-development of mill lands in their area with their health. The hectic construction activity at Elphinstone and Jupiter mills, where huge commercial complexes are coming up, and the NTC mill land, which will turn into an entertainment centre, is generating a lot of dust leading to people complaining of cough, asthma-related problems and burning eyes.

Since construction began a year ago, doctors have reported a sharp increase in lung ailments.

...

Munaf Thakur, member of Elphinstone Road Rahiwasi Seva Sangh, an association of local residents, says, “Over 500 trucks bring construction material and a similar number take away debris from here. Spillage from the trucks remain on the road and dust is blown into homes by the movement of passing vehicles.”

Madhukar Tawade, another member of the Sangh, says, “Much of the dust is generated by the stone crushers and concrete mixers. The sites are not properly enclosed.”

...

“There is construction activity going on and it (dust problem) is not a usual situation. There will be some inconvenience. We have put up 30-feet high metal barricades around the site. We plan to raise the height by another 10 feet. However, we are ready to talk to residents if there is still a problem."

Here's a neat update. This tower's getting a neighbor!

Long awaited (by SSC India forumers, anyway) renderings for the promised residential tower at redevelopment of Jupiter Mills, Mumbai (Bombay) by developers Indiabulls Real Estate has finally been released by Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects:

ditto on that.

But completion date of September this year seems far-fetched.

jai,

the photograph u had given is not the actual construction site of elphinstone mill land. it is a relatively small 3/4th to 1 acre sized plot located close to jupiter mill which the indiabulls firm is using as a storage cum service area. the proper elphinstone mill land is on the other side of the elphinstone road.

these are the photographs (taken on 07.05.2008) of the construction activity on the elphinstone mill land. the construction aactivity happening on the LEFT side is the one on the elphinstone mill land.








the pic given below is the construction activity which is going on the plot just adjacent to the elphinstone mill land, on its north side. the structure seems to be massive, but no idea whatsoever what it is.

awesome update bro! Thanks for the clarification. All the maps in the world are worthless compared to eyes on the ground.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see how progress comes along before we can definitively say what's being built

Some more confirmation that both Elphinstone and Jupiter Mills towers are in the pipeline. From this press release (pdf):

Quote:
MARKETING OF ONE OF INDIA’S TALLEST BUILDING AWARDED
TO HOUSTON-BASED RICHARDS/CARLBERG

Agency to Promote Three Projects in Mumbai’s New Central Business District
HOUSTON (August 30, 2007) — Central Mumbai in India is emerging as the
new financial business centre of the fifth most populous metropolitan area in
the world and will soon be home to one of the tallest building in the country – a
luxury condominium. The builder and one of India’s leading real estate
companies, Indiabulls Real Estate Limited (IBREL), has selected Houston-based
Richards/Carlberg as its agency of record to promote the structure along with
two other construction projects in the area. The agency’s responsibilities include
the worldwide advertising and marketing of the complex.


[...]

Richards/Carlberg’s first assignment included the naming of the initial
project – One Indiabulls Centre, which will offer more than 2 million square feet
of office and retail space. The agency currently is developing one of the first
marketing materials which is 20-page fold out color brochure that outlines the
key features of the Centre
including its LEED (Leadership in Energy
Environmental Design) gold rating certification; its ease of accessibility by bus,
Indiabulls and Richards/Carlberg
Page 2
taxi, rail and proximity to the airport; its state-of-the-art security with smart card
readers, a monitoring room, alarm systems, fire detection and more; and a host
of amenities like a fitness centre, concierge service and several eateries. Similar
marketing materials will be created for the 60-story commercial office building
and the 75-story condominium, both of which will be certified Platinum Green
Buildings
. Creative development for advertising to follow.
Which two buildings are they talking about? Yup:
