Does the 2014 proposal then mean that the Heritage Old Kenilworth Hotel building will be preserved? Why can't they incorporate that beautiful building into the new structure?

does it matter whether it is topped out or not?. It has reached more height than the 42.

Also, the crown of The 42 has to be fixed. In that sense it is not topped out.

I'm pretty sure the wiki hasn't been updated. Palais royale in Mumbai is around 300m

But Palais Royale hasn't yet topped out. Whereas, The 42 is officially topped out except the crown.

Since the 42 has already been topped out now, let me ask this that what happened to the reduction of no. of floors ordered by AAI which was previously in the news? Was it fake or have the builders got the clearance?

Lol, vaidya do you really not know the answer???

The 42 is great awesome but dont you think we need more of that height in the vicinity. Only one building like that, the 42 is sticking out like ,....well....middle finger... we need more asap.

True..Buildings on/ near Chowringhee Road have got such an amazing frontage, that they are able to make the most of their location.

However, more of these buildings will come up only when there is a considerable rise in the overall business activities in the city. 'The 42'' is a residential tower. But, like in other major cities, we need more commercial buildings to come up in future, in places like this...that will make the idea more feasible and sustainable.
