However, there is a lot of activity around midtown, which is the new CBD U/C further north. You can see a few tall buildings in the background here :

Am I wrong? To me it seems that all the tallest buildings in Mumbai are u/c or look very new!

We all know in our hearts that everyone is biased and "unfair" when it comes to these threads. So don't you worry.

Bombay l Mumbai - India











Many towers over 55-floors are currently u/c. By 2010, the skyline will look more like the ones in Shanghai & Hong Kong. Also, The majestic Western Freeway Sealink is scheduled to be completed in 2009. The cable stayed Towers of the bridge alone are 40-Floors tall. Thats going to really change the panorama of the skyline..

Yes but with a booming economy, Mumbai and other Indian cities are improving especially living conditions and quality of life.

But looking at the pics it is dense

Mumbai has a long way to go to improve its infrastructure. The trains were fairly intimidating although their main station VT looked very nice on the outside.

Contrary to some perceptions here, the real estate in the better parts of Mumbai are extremely pricey, even though they don't look anything like their price.
