MUMBAI | Orchid DB Crown | 259m | 72 fl | 68 fl x 2 | U/C

Coming up on what used to be Crown Mills in Mumbai, Orchid Crown by DB Realty is another set of triplets that will make its mark on the growing upper westside skyline. The project has been designed by Hafeez Contractor and L&T has bagged the construction order to build these 75 storey towers. The project is expected to be completed by around mid 2013.

Nice to see the site being preped. Are all three buildings expected to be 300m+ or is it just the tallest one?

This should be moved to the construction thread. Concrete has already been poured on the site and piling is well under way.

Triple supertall. With all those buildings Mumbai will soon have more supertalls than a lot of cities that are known for skyscrapers
