FACT: This tower was designed by Hafiz Contractor. It also should hopefully cause a halo effect on high-rise construction in Mumbai so as to pave the way for some stuff in the range of 200-360m or so.

The design really looks exotic. I could suggest demolishing those ghetto buildings surrounding it & make roads wider to accomodate the traffic which is certainly going to increase once these towers are occupied. But if only some1 was there to listen to me. I read some posts mentioning about a 100f tower coming up in Mumbai. Can any1 fill me up about it? Can some1 post some renderings of the tower?

I think you might be talking about the WTC in Mumbai.

Well, at least in the India case, Emporis only seems to know what SSC India members tell them

Right now the 110-floor WTC is still a proposal. People have confirmed its existance as a proposal in news reports, and supposedly some former mill land is bought for this purpose (one report even said work on the foundation has started), but I wouldn't expect it or towers of this size to be formally announced and really go underway in construction for 5-6 more years at the very least, until basic infrastructure is laid down that would support such a tower

How can such a humongous project be kept so confidential? 110F tower in Mumbai is doing to be a huge news in the Asian Real state market. It would be something like Jin Mao tower, Shanghai or Taipei 101. 110F can easily be translated into well over 400m which is huge. Do you have any link which confirms the news?

It's not huge news because its not news.. yet. Its only a plan in the minds of a developer. There are many supertalls planned every day, but few actually get built. This tower is like in the conceptual stage, not even on paper. There's really nothing to report on the matter

There was some news about it in one of the archived Mumbai discussion threads in the SSC India forum, with a quote from one of the guys involved. Check that out.

Mumbai has a very strict FSI, and they don't allow commercial high-rises, which are almost always the swanky 'capital' highrise/supertall projects, only residential. Reason for it is because Mumbai's infrastructure right now cannot support supertall or commerical highrises. And there's also the whole legal process (quagmire) of slum redevelopment. The nature of Indian bureaucracy won't allow for unilateral mass moving of poor people. While this is good for democracy, its havoc for high-rise development (though a worthy price to pay). Hence the BMC can't simply raze acres of slums/chawls/etc and build a massive CBD from scratch.

That's why buildings of any real size, as well the selling of the mill land and other redevelopment properties is basically frozen until the infrastructure can be upgraded, and the legal mechinism for development is established. The infrastructure upgrading is plodding along, and the legal battles and regulations that prevented development are just starting to steam ahead, with several landmark cases won. One of them being the OK given for S D Towers. Another was the allowance for 100% FDI in construction projects.

It's a painful(ly slow) but necessary procses to ensure true organic growth and human rights for the poor. That's why I said, that in 5-6 years, we'll see projects of real size come about, only after the foundation is solidly laid.

It's like a snowball rolling downhill. Its been slow but its getting bigger and faster. Mumbai has come soooo far in the last year, and things are picking up. Its good tidings and all, but its not going to happen overnight

I recently read Maharashta's CM's interview where he actually supported high rise structures. But, something needs to be done about the slums. What happened to government Slum demolition scheme.
