MUMBAI | Mumbai Port Waterfront Redevelopment | 800m+ | 2625ft+ | Pro

I personally think this will stay more of a dream project than ever being built. Hopefully the money follows through instead of getting into the hands of corrupt politicians.

Would love to see a render of the tower.

Nitin Gadkari readies plan for historic landmark taller than Burj Khalifa on Mumbai waterfront

By PTI | Updated: Apr 16, 2017, 11.26 AM IST


A green boulevard bigger than Mumbai's Marine Drive will form part of the new eastern waterfront, Gadkari said.

NEW DELHI: A structure taller than Dubai's iconic 163-floor Burj Khalifa with a green boulevard bigger than Mumbai's Marine Drive will form part of a new eastern waterfront to be developed on a wasteland in the country's financial capital.

These grand plans are part of a dream project of Nitin Gadkari, the union minister for Shipping, Road Transport and Highways, who sees the Mumbai Port Trust as the "richest landlord" of the city and wants to give a makeover to its huge swathes of of industrial wasteland.

"In Mumbai, we are the number one landlord. The iconic Taj Hotel, the Ballard Estate, the Reliance building, we (MbPT) are the owners. There are beautiful plans to develop the huge land with the port," Gadkari told PTI.

The plans are ready and we are awaiting Centre's nod, the Minister said.

"We are not giving our land to the builders and investors. We have plans to develop the area...We are making a green, smart road, three times bigger than the Marine Drive. We plan historic landmark bigger than Burj Khalifa. The plan is ready, we are waiting for the approval from the Cabinet," Gadkari said.

MbPT, which was earlier called the Bombay Port Trust, is one of the largest public land holders in Mumbai city and has been operating the port since 1873. It is one of the top 12 major ports in the country.

"About 500 hectares is proposed to be developed with a mix of port operations, business, office, commercial, retail, entertainment, community projects and convention centres, etc," a top official said.

A key feature of the plan is a 7-km long marine drive between Mazagaon Docks and Wadala, much bigger than the existing Marine Drive.

The proposed projects also include creation of spaces for community recreation and engagement, maritime museum, marinas etc.

Mumbai Port has already invited global tender from consulting firms for master plan and infrastructure design of the port.

The Centre had earlier set up a committee under the chairmanship of R Jadhav for preparing a roadmap for development of Port's waterfront and land, which has already been submitted to the Ministry of Shipping.

Gadkari said the Shipping Ministry has plans to develop other ports too.

I personally thinks that India needs to deal with overpopulation than to build a skyscraper taller than the Burj Khalifa, but if the building has a residential section, then I'd be okay with it, but still, India needs to deal with overpopulation.

The good thing about hope is that it doesn't need to be realistic.

Still 100s of Skycrapers are built in suburban and satellite cities. The prob with some supertalls is builders have broken rules and got into legal issues and are taking longer than expected . Though some have already crossed 300m mark and will be completed in few years.

If you compare avg income to cost of buying a house ratio, then Mumbai is costliest in the world. That also slows the sales.

Mumbai literally has 1000s of 20-40 floors spread across main city, suburban and satellite cities. Probably one of the most under rated skylines.

This plan is by the government, so they'll have all the necessary clearances in place before they start building. I trust Gadkari when he says it will happen due to his reputation of getting things done.

Maybe that's the best way to deal with its overpopulation. Stack them high not wide.

I don't really see this coming! India has a lot of things to deal with rather than a huge tower IMO
