BREACH CANDY | JK House | 145 m | 36 fl | T/O

A challenger appears...

Looks like Mukesh Ambani and Residence Antila are inspiring some imitators.

Quote:
A single family owned residential tower rising to a height of 145 metres in the heart of South Mumbai’s exclusive Breach Candy neighborhood, JK house enjoys spectacular views of the ocean and all of Mumbai’s skyline.

The slender tower is an engineering achievement designed with 48 feet cantilevers and houses a museum, 2 private swimming pools, a gym with a spa and recreational centre, and a helipad at its highest point.

Promising to be an iconic structure, The building will house the family owned Raymonds retail and garment showroom on the street level. The upper floors are divided into separate residential units for the different family members each with spacious outdoor terraces and gardens.
I found two renders on the different architect's website am not sure which of these or possibly some other design is u/c

Currenly U/C
Accoding to this article...

His sky-kissing palatial house on the Bhulabhai Desai Road in posh south Mumbai, under construction for more than a year, has already touched 23 floors, and is still going up.
Google maps substantiates the article...

The second one seems to be u/c. Talati's website says "COMPLETION 2011" while james law/cybertecture doesn't even mention the tower on their official site.

Gosh, you can see the resemblance of Palais Royale in the 2nd. The first one was something unique, the other is just ghastly.

It's not bad, but Antilia still's got top marks from me. Especially when the green wall takes root, as it were

Antillia eleavation and form is far better resolved than this..This one looks like a un-synchronised combination of forms..

I think since its a private residence thay have gone with render 2. As render 1 is glass and not many people will like to live in glass house for privacy reasons. The second reason may be security also ?

The first one is very cool indeed. If this one comes up, I would love it.
The second one looks a building very similar to the one across the US Consulate in Breach Candy itself, forgot its name though (Seaface is it?)

This is a bloody knockoff, please don't build like that... let Antilia remain unique.

Yes. Suncity and India101. This is it and that's the name as well. Thanks. And I said that because the lower part of the building looked like stairs, similar to Suraj Millennium, may be just a bit. But that was just a wild guess and looking at the picture now, I was completely off, I guess.

I also think render two is more likely being built than render one.
