Just because it is designed by a renowned design firm doesn't mean that the design is automatically good-looking.

Seriously, it doesn't get any more boring than this:



There are tons of good-looking towers going up in Mumbai at the moment (the Namaste Tower is my favorite), however these certianly don't belong to them.

Thanks for sharing your opinion; it's possible others share your opinion too.

This is a transformational project for Mumbai as it's incredibly environment-friendly and I hope Mumbai gets more of such designs.
The world is seeing a degrading environment of alarming proportions. Green projects should take priority over just exciting designs.
Personally, I find the designs are very stylish, awe-inspiring and these shimmering towers will look magnificent from the Mumbai Monorail.

Thank you for such a nice statement, KillerZavatar.
It doesn't seem, though, that these big tower projects will get completed so quickly.

New Cuffe Parade is expected to become part of a grand master-plan called Wadala Commercial Centre; the master-plan concept unveiled here, thanks to Deekshith:

Awesome design, but it is a complete rip-off of the old One Park Avenue tower proposal in Dubai.
