MAHALAXMI | DB Heights | 328 m | 80 fl x 2 | U/C

December 2009 UPDATE: Please see the bottom of this thread for the latest design of these towers.

Orchid Heights -- Jacob Circle


DB Reality has become one of Mumbai's most prolific developers and are behind several of the Mumbai's tallest building proposals. Orchid Heights is one of these.





Comprising two towers of 55 stories (52 floors + 3 story podium), Orchid Heights is a mixed-used Hotel/Residential/Retail development spread over three acres at Jacob Circle, nearby Worli.



Orchid Heights will contain a 250 room super luxury hotel, 50 long stay suites, 55 long lease apartments and 100,000 sq. ft. shopping arcade for luxury high-end boutiques in the podium. The project also contains other highrises whose designs are not yet released.



Of note in the design is glass-topped crown, which presumably will have an observation floor. Located smack dab in the middle of Mumbai's under construction skyline, the towers should offer some awesome views.

Could this be one of them or is this a new design of the project? The design of this tower doesn't match any of the tower footprints in the layout.

You know what, I think that the new rendering reflects the new design of the pair of the towers.

If you see the location map:


Note how the tower is twinned.

Thank god too. The original design is quite ugly

This project is back on there website, and yes the above render is probably the official one. They've moved it to the "On going" section of there website so construction should start soon. They also have a larger render of the above one on their website.



(btw, DB Realty has a whole stack of new projects, but don't have renders yet)

Folks, these twins are under construction and will be supertalls! Check this article out -


A 6-bhk on the 80th floor, anyone?

Quote:
Mumbai: Even as city developers like SD Corporation and IndiaBulls vie with each other to construct the tallest building, work is quietly underway on India's tallest residential building at Jacob Circle in Mahalaxmi.

Every day for the past few weeks, hundreds of construction workers have been descending scaffolding staircases to excavate the foundation and build the steel columns that would form the base of Orchid Heights, a pair of 80-storey residential buildings (approximately 300 metres high) being constructed by DB Realty.

Spread across 6 acres, the buildings, to be developed in the premises of the defunct Pidilite Industries, will have 3.5 acres reserved for a garden and amenities such as gymnasium, swimming pool, and spa for the 150-plus 4-BHK and 6-BHK flats of 3,250 sq ft and above.

With permissions in place to construct up to 60 storeys, the developer today launched sales with a special offer of Rs20,000 per sq ft, with two free car parking slots and no floor rise (increase in rate per sq feet for higher floors) till the 36th floor. The first 18 levels are reserved for car park and other amenities.

The building will have six guest elevators, two 'servant' elevators, and four personalised elevators that will open directly in the apartments.

"We believe in giving products that are not only exclusive but also ensure privacy for our customers. That's why the plan is such that the elevators open directly into the living room," said Nabil Patel, director of DB Realty.

Post the special pre-sale offer, the rates will be hiked to Rs25,000 per sq ft, while car park slots will cost Rs10 lakh. To dissuade investors, the developer has kept a 2-year lock-in period, during which the buyer cannot sell the flat.

Catch line!!!! I guess they havn't yet received permission for full 80 floors. Lets just hold on the champagne for a while.

Nice building design indeed and better than the previous renders.

I think it will stay at 60 floors.

tried enlarging the rendering to get a better idea of what the new design looks like



Definately a family resemblance to DB Reality's Orchid Crown in Prabhadevi:

Perhaps also designed by Hafeez Contractor?

How does the concept of elevator opening in an apartment work? Anyone with familiarity?

Hi Bhargav. Its actually fairly common in Singapore, KL and Jakarta. The lifts are access controlled. So residents can push only their own floor button in the elevator. Visitors need to be buzzed in by the resident so they first need to call up to the apartment and then the resident can give them lift access from their intercom inside the hoiuse. The visitor once again will be unable to press any other level other than the one that they have been buzzed in from.

Normally, the elevators open into a little foyer that is usually outside the living room and has a door to enable it to be isolated from the rest of the house. But the foyer is a private area and definitely a part of the apartment.

Condos with these facilities also have a service elevator for goods, large items and pets that is the in the common lobbies aoutside the apartments.
