Awesome... All three supertalls will complement Mumbai's dense skyscraper surroundings.

Nah, not on-hold, just going very slowly. I can definitely see a little progress. They built about 4 floors this past year.

I thought they were all three supertalls, but the middle tower was just slightly shorter due to it's flat top?

Deekshith, do you have a published link or a valid source stating the third tower isn't a super tall?

The sales pavilion for DB Crown clearly shows all three towers are supertalls as in the photo below, taken by IndiansUnite; this was taken on December 23rd, 2012:-

Because of new Development control rules (DCR) in Mumbai third tower is brought down to ~50 floors above podium level i.e, 10-11 floors shorter than other 2 towers. Floor to floor height of orchid crown is 4.2m.... So, the Tower C would be around 45m shorter than A and B towers.

Thanks for explaining, deekshith.
The thread title should then be updated to reflect two supertalls and not three.

This is how the 3 towers are placed in the plot. Area within the red box is where the steel and concrete work on raft foundation is going on.

Ok, Tower A and B will be supertalls- 337 m (75 fl) each.

Tower C will be 45 m shorter by roof height only; so that's about 65 fl high and a roof height of 292 m.
The renders show a rectangular crown above the top floor that could well be 8m high or more. So Tower C could become a supertall as well!
