Mumbai is not bad, but for reaching the top, I still doubt it.

Many East Asian cities r already so damn dense with skyscrapers, and still build many many projects.
Southeast Asian cities r too. Though limited just the Capital city and its surroundings, but they make it sooo good.

This city already has eleven buildings above 200 mtrs, with the current tallest is Wisma BNI 262 mtrs. And several others are still props, or U/C.

Like I said Mumbai will not be able to compete with the top in Asia. Not now. Maybe not even in the near future..... You can't beat the top with a few new skyscrapers.

Mumbai is gonna see a huge change. It has over fifty 50fl+ projects. It has heaps of supertall projects on the way. And there are new projects every few weeks.

Mumbai first needs a professional city administration if it wants to compete with cities like Hong Kong. There are severe infrastructure and administrative issues to sort out. There are lots of great projects going up of course, but it's all very unplanned and disorganized. Most cities have a planned CBDs for supertalls to come up, but Mumbai is building supertalls in the historical and very congested parts of the city.

Also, Mumbai is dealing with antiquated and ill-thought out rent control laws which prevents developers from building affordable housing for new migrants. This has been one of the major reasons why slums have come up all over the city. There is simply no cheap housing, and the owners of old buildings cannot maintain their buildings because the tenants still pay the same rent that they were paying 50 years ago. So on one hand you have crumbling, vacant buildings and on the other you have proliferating slums.

Mumbai won't be able compete with Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Seoul etc. It is just high-rises popping up randomly, may look good. Who knows.

I help this thread to stay friendly. If we do not stop this it will create such a silent war between non Mumbai and Mumbai supporter.



But up to you tho'.

most of the high rises are residential in mumbai.So i dont see how they need to planned.

If you have tall office space coming up then yeah issues like parking etc pop up plus people need to get to them etc etc.


Spot on, with the rent laws. thats soo true.


whats happening in Mumbai is that a lot of dubai contruction teams of labourers and engineers of Indian origin are moving to the city as the contruction work has slowed down in Dubai. That has made building these supertalls way cheaper.

However that said clearly Mumbai is going to take a lot of time maybe even 50years to get the same kind of skyline of Hong Kong and the rest mentioned.

People like Yash chauhan need to think before they type. I say that as a born and raised mumbaikar.

Mumbai should get about 10-12 supertalls(above 300m) by 2020 and there will be a nice cluster around the Prabhadevi-Worli-parel area. but thats about it.

To build supertalls, a city needs the financial capability and the will to achieve that goal. I think Mumbai has both now, and they started building supertalls. But again even city policies may not be consistent. For instance, I learned that Chongqing in China recently started imposing restrictions on building some of the supertalls, and heights of these projects were adjusted from 300m+ to 280-290m. Also the economy can cause serious problems sometimes. Southeast Asian cities could have built much more if not for that financial crisis in the 90's. There are too many things unpredictable in the long term.
