Obviously these are the better ones in Ahmedabad. Nice! At least the newer apartments and glassy office buildings are looking waay better.

One of my friends had a house in Shilalekh, it was 10 minutes walk from my house. It is a complex of 6-10(I don't remember for sure) 12 storied buildings.

what have we here?

India's tallest building to tower over Gujarat?

Quote:
It seems Chief Minister Narendra Modi wants to stand tall. And fuelling his towering dream is a building, which if built, will be the tallest in the country.

On Thursday, Modi took the first step towards his dream building when a consortium of seven international organisations specialising in urban development unveiled the lofty plan to reach for the skies. Members of the consortium met the CM at the Vibrant Gujarat summit with a tentative plan of the building that could be a business centre, leased out to the private sector.

The building would come up in Gandhinagar, but the cost and the economic feasibility of the project is not known. The plan — presently very sketchy — was drawn up after Modi's visit to Hong Kong last month, where he met representatives of the Hong Kong-based consortium. "He was impressed with the buildings we have built in Suzhou in China and in Hong Kong. We specialise in tall buildings and are interested in seeing if we can take the vision forward in Gujarat," said Grant Robertson, director, Ove Arup and Partners Hong Kong Limited, one of the partners of the consortium.

"It is at a nascent stage. Once we get the green signal, the next step involves scouting for a suitable location so that the foundation is strong. Then we need to work on the finance part," said Robertson.

The existing tall buildings in the country are Shreepati Arcade (45 floors) and Belvedere Court (40 floors) at Nana Chowk and Kalpataru Heights (39 floors) at Agripada, all in Mumbai.

Yet another example of how WB politics can suck the life and dreams out of everyone

When last heard of, wasn't a 50 storey tower supposed to be his latest plan? And I thought Manmohan had banned foreign tours and all..... Well, if this isn't another pipedream, it sounds good. Maybe they shold put it in Surat instead of Gandhinagar though.......

Unforntuately it seems as though the politicains and planners in India have a lot of bark but no bite. Its inevitable that that this proposal in Gujarat is just another pipe dream. Just like all the ambitious projects that might actual contribute towards giving our cities global recognition. It seems the wheels have also come off the National Texitle Corporation's plans to sell its mills in Dadar to build a 420m tall WTC. Well thats India for you

Hey how do you know that the WTC proposal was 420m? I am still positive about it, looking at the way the mill lands are now developing. So many big talls, SD twins, 51F Godrej tower etc. And also now that Santa Shinde is gone and VD is serious about Mumbai's development........IT WILL HAPPEN!

Well i hope you are right

Well the 420m figure was just the most opptomistic figure touted around, which could only materialise if there was enough demand for office space. As for construction getting under way, i wasnt aware of that, as im in London most of the year. Its just i heard that the project was in doubt due to the fact it was on the site of some guys memorial. I hope your right, but i guess im just more pessamistic than most.

No construction hasn't started. I'm just positive it will NTC are very serious about building it, and there's been a lot more than just whispers about this project. I think Vilasrao Deshmukh won't have any problems with it, I guess "NGOs" are the only ones probably holding it up. But no one is sure of the height, initially it was 75 storeys, then Suncity posted an article claiming 104 storeys! At that height it could be over 500m!

So now we have one more big mystery project. First Mumbai's textiles WTC, then Kolkata's landmark tower, and now Gandhinagar's own landmark tower. Not to mention Hyderabad's 60F residential, Bangalore's 550m sky tower etc. etc. all big plans but then suddenly nothing more is heard. At least the plans are flowing, hopefully one should come off... BTW if politics is a hurdle for the mumbai wtc, hope the "examples" of Narendra Modi and Kolkata dude rub off....

It's stupid to say the least - politicians have no business dictating or pre-setting building heights and widths. IMO, they neither have the competence, nor the mandate to do so. Typical third world mentality - "suffering from penis envy"!

ps: let the free market decide what it wants and what it wants to reject.

I just read that the NTC mill land auction have been put off due to "public controversy" about their proposed usage by "activists". I think I posted something in the Mumbai thread. Don't know if that affects this project.
