SURAT | DREAM City Iconic Tower | 1200m | Vision

Since visions are allowed in this section..

Surat to get World’s Tallest Building

Quote:
Surat, already famous for its scenic beauty and food, is expecting to add a new milestone to its name. You will soon be able to touch the sky without wings as a Mumbai- based builder, dreams of building the tallest building in the world in the heart of the City of Diamonds.

A Mumbai-based real estate developer, Harihara Mahapatra is interested in constructing a tower, 1.2 km tall and claims that it would be the tallest building in the world.

Surat collector Rajender Kumar said, “The company is planning to create this iconic structure through new patented technology.”

The tower was proposed in the forthcoming project- Dream City at Khajod. The would-be world’s tallest building will require an investment of approximately Rs. 1,200 crore. Mahapatra has already sought an area of 1 sq. km.

“It is an ambitious project that requires clearances from number of agencies like Airport Authority of India and others,” a government official quoted.

After the discussion with Surat collector Rajender Kumar, the proposal was forwarded to Gujarat Infrastructure Development Board (GIDB). Kumar told TOI, "The company is planning to create this iconic structure through new patented technology."

No renderings of the propsed tower but found two images of the physical scale model of the DREAM CITY project taken during the foundation stone laying ceremony.

They completely skip the steps.

First please finish World One before going into a crazy hypertall without any rendering or concept whatsoever

And ok if i'm not wrong 1200 crore = 12 billions euro?

Seriously? why so expensive? it's like 300m wide?
this is India with india salary and building norms , even with european standard building a 1,2km skyscraper would be cheaper I guess

World one's in a different city, different state, being built by a different builder. There are multiple supertalls coming up in India right now. There's no rule stating that it is only feasible to build one 300 + meter building in the entire country at a time.

As of today, 1200 crore is equal to or less than approximately 200 million euros.

I'll only believe that this tower is really going to come up when the first brick is laid (as is my thought about most of the megatall proposals around the world). The supertall was probably included in the proposal as a way of grabbing eyeballs and arousing investor interest. It could well be a long term vision which could be taken up once most of the diamond city has come up.

Anyway, I must say the vision for the project is fabulous.

But why Surat why not Ahmedabad ?

Mumbai or Bangalore or Delhi deserve such a mega tall.
