ALTAMOUNT ROAD | Lodha Project | 240m | 48 fl | U/C

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/17577670.cms

MUMBAI: Leading realty company Lodha Developer has finally acquired Washington House, the three-storey residential building owned by the US consulate on Altamont Road, for Rs 341.82 crore. Lodha beat three rival developers including Mahindra Lifespaces and Tata Housing whose bids ranged around Rs 300 crore, which was far below the reserve price of Rs 350 crore fixed by the consulate.

Dubbed as the billionaires' lane, Altamont Road is among the 10 costliest addressess in the world and is home to some of the richest Indians, including Mukesh Ambani and several Bollywood stars.

Property experts say Lodha's bid, although below the reserve price of Rs 350 crore, is in tune with current sluggish market conditions. "Though the property is located in an upmarket locality, the economic market is not in tune with the ground conditions. The consulate must have therefore, thought it prudent to accept the best price,'' said an expert.

The three-storeyed Washington House covers 2,702 square metres, or nearly three-fourth of an acre. It is listed as Grade III property and falls under the Coastal Regulation Zone II. The plot has a road reservation of about 293 sq mt.

Early on Tuesday afternoon, Abhishek Lodha, managing director of Lodha Group, sealed the agreement by handing over the full and final payment of Rs 300 crore to the consulate. The developer had earlier paid Rs 40 crore.

The sale agreement was then signed and registered at the Old Custom House, Fort, in the presence of Lodha and Paul C Cox, a senior official and the authorized signatory from the US embassy. Lodha reportedly paid a stamp duty of about Rs 17 crore to get the property transferred in his name. Under the rules, the ministry of external affairs had on May 3 approved the consulate's request to sell the property to Lodha.

With a developable space of almost 1.2 lakh sq ft—including unconsumed FSI—Lodha is all set to construct a super-luxury residential tower of 30 floors. Confirming the sale, Abhishek Lodha said the deal was in line with the company's growth strategy. "We have already appointed well-known Iran-born German architect Hadi Teherani to design the building.

Considering its location —on top of Altamont Road and offering an unparalled view of the Arabian Sea—we are planning to house exclusive apartments of 3,000-4,000 sq ft per floor,'' said Lodha, who is set to launch the project as early as March 2013. Property rates in the immediate vicinity currently range over Rs 70,000 a sq ft.

Luxpresso (a blog) has hosted a render that it claims is an artist's impression -


- The blog post doesn't cite where they fished it out from, but that logo on the bottom seems to confirm that this is the design.

Quote:
The new building - described in a Lodha release as a 'bold black tinted glass tower', will come up on Mumbai's 'Billionaire Mile'; Mukesh Ambani's Antilla and Kumarmangalam Birla's palatial mansion are also located here. Apartments will be as big as 3,000sqft -4,000 sqft - with three, four and five bedrooms - and thanks to the dark tinted glass used, will be able to limit heat gain.

With one flat per floor, each will come with a private pool, an elevator lobbies for each apartment and 5-level advanced security.
30, as stated in the article Akbar posted is probably just the number of habitable floors. Overall, the tower will have more floors 'cause of the parking garage. The site is located right next to Antilia (view on google maps):

from the renders it looks like a 40fl building but that black tinted glass would be a huge hit i guess it would surely make its mark in the skyline

I don't that will be the official design as this article says it "will be designed" -

The tower set to be launched as early as March 2013 will be designed by Iranian born German architect, Hadi Teherani, whose projects extend from designing cufflinks for Mont Blanc to modular kitchens for Poggenpohl to high rise buildings to university campuses.

Amazing render. I would love to see this one materialize. I just hope it's taller than 40 flrs. should be atleast 60 floors. But ofcourse, FSI may not be available.

I believer Lodha will also try and acquire the neighboring societies. I would make the project "Grand".

^ That's just the general location of the project that I received. The actual site could be anywhere in or around that circle. btw the project location is being advertised as 'Andheri East'.

Thanks for the heads-up VIP . Lodha has demolished Washington House to facilitate the construction of their new tower project on Altamount road:




Render that's doing the rounds on the internet:



The project was reported to be set for a March 2013 launch, so we should soon hopefully expect some clarity on the number of floors and perhaps the construction timeline as well.

^ I thought that washington house was a heritage structure. How could they demolish the whole thing.

Another thing what is there on the adjacent plot of antilla ? towards north side. Cz in the pics it seems like a dilapidated building and can be very well used for a high rise( considering it is THE altamount road.

In coming years, Worli itself is going to house so many supertalls so near to each other..
latest GE update shows so much of construction activity!

does anyone have a list of buildings in this upcoming cluster?

Henchman - Grade III structures can be demolished and redeveloped under certain circumstances. That makes it unnecessary to add it to any heritage list, but that's just how it is. These structures don't have any architectural importance btw.

GrapeWine - India101 has compiled a comprehensive list on this page:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...82638&page=405

Worli seems to have 13 50+ storey projects in various stages, many of which have multiple towers.

A Berlin based company called Werk5 has made a 1:150 scale model of Lodha's new Altamount Road project:



Quote:
TEHERANI ARCHITECTS / LODHA - Mumbai Tower

On behalf of Mumbai based LODHA DEVELOPERS LTD, werk5 has manufactured an illuminated high-riser model in a 1:150 scale, which was designed by Hadi Teherani architects from Hamburg.

The building is supposed to be constructed in the immediate vicinity of the worlds most expensive residential building ('Antilia'), owned by the billionaire Mukesh Ambani.

Scale : 1:150
Material : forex, solid wood, polystyrene, precision acrylic, spreading material
Technique: 2D-CNC, 3D print, digital print, laser engraving, LED illumination, light control, remote control
Year: 2013
Category: High-riser, residential buliding, Far East
Presentation model






Hopefully the blue cladding? won't make it look as gaudy as above. Anyhow, this just confirms the design we've seen before:

great work IU.
+11111.

I think the black glass is for privacy for the residents and prevent residents from the scorching heat in Mumbai.

Won't the black glass absorb more heat?

with so many projects, it will be interesting to c who is fueling lodha... coz if 50% of these projects don't sell, it cud have disastrous consequences on not just Lodha but the entire market... it is mind boggling to see one developer undertake so many high profile high ticketed projects simultaneously, posing to find buyers in the market... if this indeed is not true, and the buyers dry up... so does the cash flow and the "God bless" internal accruals... lodha will bring everything down... reminds me of the chinese tianjin real estate scene...
