Don't worry about it, it's quite true. Luckily that dump will soon be home to the construction process of a very beautiful supertall.

I think it looks like a dump because there are some left of debris after the demolition of the former mill. It will be cleaned up soon.

India’s high earners fuel demand for high-rise luxury
Tue, 2010-11-02 11:39


MUMBAI: The heart of Mumbai city, once a cotton mill hub, is seeing a rapid change in its skyline as more than 30 skyscrapers are mushrooming out of slumland in the city’s most congested district.

The transformation reflects the breakneck pace of growth in Asia’s third largest economy, as India’s property and capital markets boom and developers build dream homes for a rapidly-growing list of Indian millionaires.

Most of these high-rises, all over 40-storeys, are under construction while some are ready for owners to move in.

Aashish, a successful Mumbai corporate director in his mid-40s, is eager to live in the lap of luxury with commanding views of the Arabian Sea.

But he won’t have to leave the chaos, noise and congestion of India’s financial capital to find his dream home and the peace and quiet he craves.

Instead of new builds in the far-flung suburbs, the construction of upscale homes is now rapidly taking place in the city, as tracts of now-defunct cotton mill land are being freed up for development by the state government.

“Peace and quiet, something which enhances life for my family,” is what Aashish says led him to buy a luxury flat measuring more than 4,000 square feet (370 square metres) in the 80-storey Orchid Heights in downtown Jacob Circle.

The twin towers, sprouting up near a mass of railway tracks, low-rise tenements and choking traffic, are under construction.

Those behind the project say that people like Aashish, a director with one of India’s leading telecom companies who asked for his real name not be used, are their prime targets alongside chief executives and entrepreneurs.

“Mumbai has no option but to grow vertical,” said senior architect Deepak Hiremath of Mumbai-based Disha Direct, which designs and sells second homes.

“Mumbai’s architecture will be influenced by that seen in Dubai,” he said.

DB Realty, one of India’s leading property developers, calls people like Aashish a “retreat seeker” — a successful businessman who wants to enjoy his wealth in privacy.

He and others like him will pay nearly two million dollars for a designer apartment, built in a complex that boasts private cinemas, swimming pools, floodlit tennis courts, banqueting rooms and high-level security.

One of the most prestigious upcoming projects is Lodha Developers’ “World One”, a 117-storey colossus which will soar 1,450 feet (442 metres) — with green spaces, cafes and an open-to-air observatory — by 2014.

It will be one of the world’s tallest residential buildings, containing apartments costing as much as 14 million dollars.

Another luxury venture, the exclusive Lodha “Bellisimo” has started to receive residents who have been hand-picked for their suitability, said a company official.

The phenomenon — a stark sign of the gap between rich and poor in Mumbai, where 55 percent of the estimated 18 million population live in slum areas — is being replicated across India’s crowded cities.

At least 29 luxury projects have been launched in six leading cities — New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata and Pune — since the end of the global slump of 2008.

“Demand is sustainable,” said Shahid Balwa, chief executive of DB Realty.

“The size of the market is very large. Mumbai can absorb between 30,000 to 40,000 homes in the one million dollar-plus category, each year.”

Lodha to sell NCDs, raise `450 crore

After raising Rs.500 crore in August through a stake sale to HDFC Property Ventures Ltd for its 117-storey World One tower in Mumbai, Lodha Developers Ltd is raising up to Rs.450 crore for a 58-storey building in the same complex, according to two investment bankers familiar with the development.

The complex, also known as World One, is coming up on the 17.5-acre defunct Shreeniwas Mill in central Mumbai.

It will have three residential towers and an office building. The World One tower will be among the tallest in India.

Lodha is raising money for the second tower, World Crest, through a non-convertible debenture (NCD) issue.

The NCDs will be issued by Shreeniwas Cotton Mills Ltd, a Lodha subsidiary that is developing the complex.

Kotak Mahindra Bank has underwritten the issue.

Kotak didn’t respond to an email sent on Tuesday.

Mint has a copy of the NCD issue document that has been circulated for subscription among select rich individuals, seeking investments of Rs.10 crore or more.

The NCDs will have a coupon rate of 15.12% payable on an annual basis, or 14.5% payable on a quarterly basis.

Over the past year, Lodha made some expensive acquisitions, such as a 6.1-acre plot in Wadala, Mumbai, for Rs.4,053 crore, and launched the ambitious World One project.

It bid for two more mill auctions in Mumbai but lost to Indiabulls Real Estates Ltd.

The firm, run by brothers Abhisheck and Abhinandan Lodha and backed by their politician father Mangal Prabhat Lodha, has also filed for a Rs.2,790 crore public share sale.

According to the NCD document, Lodha has sold around 100 of the 260 apartments in the 117-storey tower.

In World Crest, where around 100 of the 200 flats are up for sale, it has sold 70 apartments in three weeks, said R. Karthik, a senior vice-president at Lodha.

Flats in the World One tower are selling at Rs.30,000 per sq.ft., and in World Crest at Rs.22,500 per sq.ft.

“Lodha would continue to raise money in multiple ways till the initial public offering happens for more acquisitions and debt repayment,” said a property consultant, who didn’t want to be named. “The NCD is cheaper than other options of parallel funding.”

A Lodha spokesperson said the company would not comment on financial matters and that the board has not taken a decision on the public listing.

By December, Lodha needs to pay back Rs.1,640 crore to Deutsche Bank, which has invested in the realty firm’s subsidiary Cowtown Land Development. Non-payment would result in Lodha having to exit some projects in Mumbai.

“Repayment will not be an issue because Lodha has got good customer advances from brisk sales, selling almost 10,000 apartments in its Dombivali project and from World One,” said one of the two investment bankers mentioned earlier in the story.

They didn’t want to be named.

So that will likey be a supertall as well! That is great news, but I hope they do not do what China does so often and just build the tiny towers first.
