India's widest tower site pic

Palm Beach Residency



From Midday:

Work began three months ago in Navi Mumbai on what will be — at 360 metres — India's longest residential building.

The Palm Beach Residency will be as long as an 18-coach train and stand 23 floors high on Palm Beach Road, Navi Mumbai.

Currently, India’s longest building, according to the Limca Book of Records, is the 180-metre Lake Castle of the Hiranandani Group, designed by Hafeez Contractor.

Palm Beach Residency will have nine interlinked wings and contain 792 two and three-bedroom flats. The developer, Sanjay Chhabria of Vijay Associates (Wadhwa) Developers, said, “We did not want to make or break any record. We just wanted to ensure that each buyer got an unrestricted view of the sea.”

Another reason developers prefer (space permitting, of course) long buildings over skyscrapers is that they can avoid the mandatory space that they would need to leave between adjoining towers.

“This way, they can make full use of the FSI (floor space index) available,” said architect Mukesh Mehta.

The project began three months ago and is expected to be completed in 30 months. The rate will be about Rs 2,500 per sq ft.

It's a construction site.

Would you prefer they hand polish the cranes?

It doesn't look great, it looks like a new generation commieblock.

Here's a bigger version of the rendering


I don't think it looks very commie blockish, except in size

Looks nice, but whats the point in connectining them all and making it so wide? I mean taller I understand, but wider doesnt make sense to me... Just harder to exacuate in case of fire and also easier for a fire to travel from one building to the next...

The buildings i noticed are not very tall instead very wide!
