MUMBAI | The Trident | 70 fl | 32 fl | Pro


X-Posting from the Mumbai Subforums. Thanks Jai for digging out the details.
Current Status: [Aug, 2011] Proposed for undisclosed developer, pending approval.

Designed by 'cybertecture' architect James Law for an unknown developer, these curiously un-trident-looking twisting towers are amongst some of the tallest proposed residential skyscraper projects in Mumbai. A floor-to-ceiling height of over 3 meters ensures the taller of the two towers will top out upwards of 210 meters, and can perhaps reach supertall heights.

From his website:
Quote:
The Trident's unique feature of two twisting towers symbolizes the evolving culture of India and emergence of economical growth in Mumbai. Capitalizing on adjacent sea view and city scenery in harmony, the twisting effect is fundamental in ensuring all residential tenants have a commanding view over the city and surrounding landscape.

Contextually, the two towers provide a sense of solid identity and spatial recognition for a distinctive innovative icon in the neighborhood horizon. As a modern architectural project, the Trident is designed to be constructed with an intelligent building system with structural platforms taking cantilevered forces from above and tied around a central core. This structure is engineered to enhance the building sophistication and mechanical calculation for enhancing both stability and flexibility. To enable comfortable quality of living, a luxurious floor-to-floor ratio of over 3 meters is tailor-made for each residential tenant to enable smooth cross air ventilation and maximum sunlight penetration.

The Trident shall certainly spear Mumbai's skyline and would be immediately recognizable amongst others in the years to come.

This part makes me think the thread should be moved to "Proposed Skyscrapers" until there is any news about its final height.

Perhaps you're right - I just caught the "supertall heights" and jumped. Will ask the mods to move it to Proposed Skyscrapers!

The top ten floors are twice as high as the other floors, so if the normal floors are 3m high then the top ten are 6m high. That makes 60x3m (180m) + 10x6m (60m) = 240m. Then there's a crown that's the height of three of the top floors, so another 3x6m (18m), bringing the total to 258m. That's of course assuming that the regular floors are indeed 3m high, they might very well be higher. If for example a regular floor is 3.5m high then the total height of the tower would be exactly 301m, a supertall.

A 3 to 3.2 m slab-to-slab is the norm for residential highrises, this one looks like it could be taller given the floor-to-ceiling facade, so that 3.5 m figure may not be too fanciful. However, it's probably better to wait for some official figures before plugging this one into the "supertall" bracket. Cheers!

Any reason to keep this thread alive? Will remove it in case nobody answers either. No reason to think it's a supertall anyway, a 70 floor residential tower, likely around 280m.
