WORLI | Century IT Park | 300m | 59 fl | U/C

Lower Parel - Century Textiles Office Tower U/C

Guys, I had never heard of this nor thought of an area or project as massive as this.

This looks to be a little across Oasis and the area that this property covers is massive.

The pic below shows 2 large cranes on the site. I managed to go in and find that this is the Century Textile Mills or Century Textiles. I enquired thinking it to be Indiabulls Blue but the security guard said it is not and it is their own office construction.


Design:







Location: (view on google maps)




Update: U/C 9th, July 2011

We need to get more details as it looks huge, ground work is done, the building at one end is above ground level as you see in the other pic below.

Century Textiles - U/C Pic 1



Closer View of the massive u/c:


Here you see the building u/c is one or two levels above ground,

An Ecomonic Times article on this project and other projects next to Century Mills from August, 2010 -

Birlas to change Central Mumbai’s landscape

Quote:
BK Birla Group To Develop Three Properties In Mumbai; Hires Shapoorji Pallonji For Developing Worli Land

TWO generations of the Birlas are set to change Mumbai’s urban landscape in a move which could add to the already burgeoning stock of residential and commercial properties in central Mumbai.

The BK Birla Group firm Century Textiles has hired the Shapoorji Pallonji group to develop a 20-acre property at the site of a textile mill in Worli in Central Mumbai.

The firm controlled by billionaire Pallonji Mistry has also started soil testing to build residential towers in a 10-acre property at Prabhadevi which overlooks the Mahindra group’s sprawling corporate headquarters.

The textiles-to-cement group is also half way through yet another realty project — a 25-storey commercial tower behind Century Bhawan in Worli, to be called Century International.

In tandem with his grandfather, Kumar Mangalam Birla, the chairman of the Aditya Birla Group, has decided to construct a multi-storey building at a location adjacent to its corporate headquarters in Worli, built on land bought from multinational pharma company Rhone-Poulenc in 2003.

BK Birla and Kumar Mangalam Birla are co-owners of shares in Pilani Investments, which holds promoters’ investments in Century Textiles. Kumar Mangalam Birla will eventually inherit ownership of most BK Birla group companies, including Century Textiles.

An IT park, a five-star hotel and commercial buildings will come up at the 20-acre mill land. The Aditya Birla group’s new office building may house executives of companies such as Grasim and Hindalco. Century Textiles’ company secretary DK Agarwal and senior president RK Dalmia did not respond to email queries on the subject. An Aditya Birla Group spokeswoman declined to comment.

“This will continue to make a huge difference to the urban landscape of Mumbai. In the course of time, the centre of gravity will shift from Nariman Point to Central Mumbai where 15,000 apartments are being added,” said Pranay Vakil, head of property consultancy firm Knight Frank.

The Wadia Group, which is locked in a dispute with the Birlas for a part of Century Textiles’ property at Worli, has recently constructed a corporate office for Axis Bank at its mill land in Worli. Leading hotel brand Shangri-La plans to build its new five-star hotel in an adjacent location.

Century Textiles has created a property management team to complete the construction in 12-15 months. Anil Mishra, who had cut his teeth in the Dubai property market, has been brought in to spearhead the project, while senior executive Sashank Bodke has been shifted to the property team, which reports to group veteran DK Agarwal. A top executive of the group is monitoring the construction of Century International.

“L&T has completed the piling work at the mill premise and Shapoorji group
has just started the construction,” said a senior BK Birla Group executive.

That is not a render of the whole tower. It is just a close up of the facade, hence you can only see 5 floors

But yeah, it looks like that first design is not the chosen one. Guess we will have to wait for the official render to be released.

But are we sure the tower underconsturction is the 50 storey one? I remember reading there was going to be mutlple towers on the 20 acre site?
