Probably smart!!
They're avoiding the India development condundrum:

BIG PROJECT=Too many cooks trying to claim chunks of the pie. If its not the government, its the civil aviation ministry. If its not DGCA, its local NGOs. If its not NGOs, its some non-entity like Waqf board. If its not Waqf board....you get the message.

Better KEEP it hidden for as long as possible to cross a critical threshold and avoid all these critters who crawl out of every nook and cranny claiming some compensation or disagreement despite successful transparent high revenue auctions!!!

I've heard this argument here many times before and I quite not get it. So when the tower will come off the ground for say 20 meters becoming obvious they (agencies) will be ok with it and won't stop it? My point is: what difference does it make to make it official now or when it is off the ground? Not to mention that this tower was already mentioned in many articles and waqf was already interested in it. It is pretty obvious that anybody who have the power to stop it know about it already. So why can't they just make it official now anyway?

I guess they'd want to avoid publicity AS LONG AS POSSIBLE to get over these irritants
until its no longer possible (=tower has breached the treeline and is visible too all). Until that time - they can get some traction and speed.

Of course you're right when it BREACHES the visible no-see line : But after a massive hulk has risen - the momentum should carry it forward regardless!!! Like Adarsh (a building that is part of a scam that SHOULD be demolished but mostly never will) - once a hulk is above ground - usually its difficult to demolish it!!!

In india - the only things that get demolished are smaller shanties, slums, chawls and shopping complexes - I haven't heard of a built skyscraper reduced to rubble - or perhaps its so rare - and even then under extra ordinary circumstances!!!

altho valid theories, i don't believe you will be pardoned for hiding things only bcoz the building is already off the ground... remember Adarsh was government scam... no group can carry on construction w/o due approvals, w/o BMC approvals... but this cud be marketing... they may not want other players to realize the market potential of a super tall in Marine Lines... coz if more players catch on, they will be left fighting for the same electorate... hence they may just want to advertise once most of the construction is on the way... in that way, pple wudn't want to wait until someone else forays into that market... of course that ways they get to command a better price... speculation only... dunno the real deal...

True. I wish one of our more enterprising Mumbai SSCians get some kind of shot of the site!! Like the excellent World One shot by CoolGuyz that put all speculation to rest - even one shot of this project would shut the naysayers and bring back the non-speculative talks back on the table!!
