WORLI | Waves | 80 floors | Proposed

X-posted from my thread in the international forum

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


Waves -- Worli, Mumbai







One of India's up-and coming architects, Sanjay Puri, graduates into the big leagues with this beautiful residential skyscraper crowning one side of Mumbai's Worli seafront.

According to World Architecture News:
Quote:
The building form is derived from the outline of the crests of the waves of the sea. Linear undulating balconies traverse the length of this residential apartment building offering unrestricted views of the sea to each of the apartments.

Four blocks with apartments varying from 2000 sq.ft. to 6000 sq. ft are connected together rising from 40 storeys towards the land end up to 80 storeys towards the sea front. The fluid balcony decks that undulate along the length extend further out at upper levels to create sky gardens overlooking the sea.


The tower is significant not only because of its size, but its location. It will be built in Worli, one of Mumbai's most expensive neighborhoods, on a piece of land jutting out into the Indian Ocean that will soon be spanned Mumbai's massive Bandra-Worli Sealink project:


The sealink will literally go right beside the building, to be built on the peninsula jutting outward in the model below:


Here is a two month old picture of the sealink u/c. I've highlighted the area where the tower will come up:


What's also interesting is that the peninsula is literally a fishing village that Mumbai sort of grew around. There is incredible potential for redevelopment of the area in the next coming years, which the size and height of this tower attests to. Even now, there are 65 x 2, 45, 40, 38 x 2, 36, 35 x 3 and 30 storey buildings all under construction in virtually the same area, again on only a small fraction of the total redevelopable land. Also of note, at the end of the peninsula is Worli Fort, built by the British in 1675, which will soon be restored to its former glory.








The tower is Mumbai's third supertall tower to come out of nowhere in one year, and represents Mumbai's incredible potential now, finally, being realized.

Cheers,
Jai

Just a thought

One has to question the safety of the balconies on the upper most floors like the wind etc. Would be great to see a more close up of the renderings of the design to make this point or end up eating my words........just a thought.

Great design and I hope it get approved too!

Massive plan! Not terrible looking...a tad Miami inspired tho'. I hope the authorities don't force out the Worli fishing village folk. They should instead, re-vitalize the neighbourhood.

What a beauty of a project and what a spectacular location, hope that this tower is built at a superfast speed and not get stuck in unnecessary controversies, albeit safety and sturdiness should be the prime consideration

I looked on Google and found out that 26 apartments buildings are located on the site of the Waves tower.

Hi
I visited the Sanjay Puri Architects website. This project is not at all listed in the Residential Projects? Any reason why?

Also I was on the Sanjay Puri website and the name for this tower is now Keystone.

Wavy India Super Tall Launched

Proposals have been put forward for what could be India's third super tall skyscraper.

Designed by up and coming Indian architect Sanjay Puri the project named Waves could be sited on one side of Mumbai's Worli seafront, one of the city's most expensive neighbourhoods.

It sits on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian ocean and is currently enjoying a building boom with construction begun on the massive Bandra - Worli sea link project and several skyscrapers already under construction in the area.

Shying away from the common place glass and steel look, the tower will be concrete and coloured to match the coasts white sands. As the name suggests the inspiration for the shaping of the tower comes from the crests of the waves.

The tower is set as four blocks with apartments varying from 200 to 600 square metres which are connected together rising from 40 storeys towards the land end of the tower up to 80 storeys where it fronts onto the beach. Total space within will be about 300,000 square metres.

Undulating linear balconies make their way across the building giving each of the apartments unrestricted and spectacular views of the sea. Further up the tower balcony decks with interesting fluidity extend out from the tower. It is here that sky gardens will be created to give social spaces which will also offer stunning views of the surrounding area.

Although still a proposal the tower does show that Mumbai's potential for redevelopment is gradually being recognised.

I spoke to Mr. Sanjay Puri on Saturday. The project has been designed for Rustomjee Builders (Keystone Realtors Pvt. Ltd). Right now they're trying to get clearances from different departments so that work on the tower can start. On being asked if any other towers for Bombay are in the works, he said that no other highrises/supertalls have so far been designed.
