These projects look awsome especially the SD Towers. Residential projects are cool but Mumbai needs more office skyscrapers. Are those 7 towers joined together? looks kind of wierd.

Yeah, most of the upcoming tall towers in Mumbai are residentiall. The govt has a "policy" that restricts tall buildings. It is stupid.

They'll be Mumbai's and India's tallest, yes. This project will hopefully open the floodgates for more 200m+ buildings in Mumbai. The rest of India is mostly covered by inane height limits, unfortunately.

Yes, all the three projects in the thread are residential. Mumbai is a very capitalistic city, and money is invested where the returns are massive and instant. So, currently the residential market is the hottest, especially premium apartments category. Hence, most of the best looking projects are all residential!

Yes, but the final renders are yet to come out. Someone in our forum has more details...maybe they could help with further questions.

It's basically because of infrastructure constraints. In most Indian cities, firefighting equipment is not upto the mark. That's why the city administrations have sort of limited the height of atleast commercial buildings.
Residential buildings are allowed to go tall because, there is a paucity of housing units, and the only way out is to go up. So inadvertantly, residential buildings have to have their own firefighting arrangements, which actually makes them quite advanced technology wise. They have to be because, most of these highrise condos are bought by Bigshots and Corporates, and the prices generally run into millions of dollars.

^ Basically that's the answer, Basshead. And well, India's full of weird building codes and regulations anyway.. but it's changing for the better now! We hope to see some of the restrictions lifted elsewhere in India, based on the example of Mumbai.
