The rendering looks nice but IMO Mumbai had enough midrise building, they should start a to build supertall

Where's the 300m building? They have a 300m latticework broadcast structure but they arent doing anythign beyond 252m, and the 90-storey Oberoi Skyz project has gone off the radar.

Maybe, but IMO Mumbai should aim to be more like Hong Kong due to its island geography.

And they need to start building taller buildings, as someone said earlier on this page of the thread.

650m twin towers on a man-made island off Narmian Pt, anyone? (Just an idea)

Ambani gives shape to new mega city

By Indrajit Gupta, Dinesh Narayanan and T Surendar/TNN

Mumbai: A few years ago, the world discovered Shanghai. If Mukesh Ambani has his way, five years from now, Mumbaikars will see a new city rising across the Gateway of India.
The yet-unnamed city will be about half the size of Mumbai. It will have broad roads, modern transportation systems, and will be linked to the island of Mumbai by a six-lane, 22-km-long sea bridge. A new international airport is also expected to come up there.
The city will be home to at least a million people, most of them working
in hi-tech and service industries such as electronics, contract research, finance, and information technology. Residents will have swank housing, modern hospitals, top-class schools, and large parks—amenities of a modern township.
Ambani’s plan got its first green signal last week when the government cleared the setting up of 140 special economic zones (SEZs), three of them proposed by the Reliance group. The project, spanning 32,000 acres (12,000 hectares), and christened Mumbai Integrated SEZ comprises Navi Mumbai SEZ, Ambani’s joint venture with Cidco, and his own yet-to-be-cleared MahaMumbai SEZ. The development is expected to begin with Dronagiri, near Jawaharlal Nehru Port, and extend to Ulwe and Kalamboli which will be only half an hour away from Mumbai, once the trans-harbour link between Sewri and Nhava is complete.
The MahaMumbai SEZ plans to emulate the succees of the likes of Shenzhen, near Shanghai and Jebel Ali in Dubai to attract foreign companies to set up their office and manufacturing units in it. The government has already announced long tax holidays to make exporting from an SEZ more attractive. Even before the project has got off the ground, CIDCO has received more than 800 applications from prospective companies.
The industries in the SEZ will also be carefully chosen. They will have to be non-polluting and more importantly, export-oriented.



Maximum CITY

Across the harbour, a spanking new township, half the size of the island city, is all set to take shape

The Building Blocks


What began as a quest for exclusive, hassle-free nooks for promoting industries has acquired a grander scale. Developers of special economic zones are thinking up entire townships housing millions of people and allied infrastructure to support a modern living. Projects of such scale also involve complex issues of local governance and financial viability.

It will need deep pockets

It is going to cost money to develop a city as big as Mumbai, a lot of money. To start with, for the Maha Mumbai SEZ will have to acquire 101.2 sq. Kms or 25000 acres of land in Panvel, Uran and Pen talukas in the mainland. Then, the SEZ developer will have to spend money levelling the land, do feasibility studies and detailed engineering plans, provide utilities like power, water, sewage and drainage, build roads and jetty. It will also have to put in initial investments in creation of residential and social infrastructure. Together, all these will form the initial capital investment of the developer.
For the Navi Mumbai and Maha Mumbai SEZs, Ambani and his team have estimated an initial capital investment of Rs 25,000 crore . That will make an initial development cost of Rs 1 crore per acre, including land acquisition costs. Since, a eight lane road alongwith a separate road for two wheelers and other mandatory open spaces will account for 50%, the developer will have to recover its investment by leasing out only the other half of the land.

Learning from pioneers

Size matters in special economic zones (SEZs). Though, tax benefits in SEZ and attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) are directly proportional, it is scale of operations that has brought more business. It is at least vindicated in two popular special zones in the region — Jebel Ali in United Arab Emirates and Shenzhen, near Shanghai in China.
In Dubai, it took almost three years for the government to transform 25 acres of desert into over 70,000 square metres of warehousing and 850,000 square metres of covered areas before industry could move in. The free trade zone, with a port that has 82 berths, was opened in 1985. Later, the zone was extended to 750 acres adding major trade and industrial areas. Today, there are 500 companies from 119 countries operating in Jebel Ali exporting garments, jewellery and high tech electronics.
Shenzhen SEZ is largest of its kind was a sleepy old city that largely depended on agriculture before the 80s. A government decree evacuated portions of the old city and added new areas to create a 80,700 acre special zone. Though there is criticism in the way the Chinese government handled the transformation, Shenzhen has become model SEZ that most emerging countries want to emulate. There were 1742 certified high tech companies by 2004, in among 5000 manufacturing and service companies. Cumulatively till 2004, Shenzhen had attracted $27.53 billion in FDI compared to India's total FDI of $34.5 for the same period.

The buck stops here

The Development Commissioner (DC) would be the supreme authority of the SEZ. The board of directors of the special purpose vehicle that will develop the SEZ will closely work with the DC in governing the entire region.
The DC, who will function as a quasi government authority, will have several powers of the state government, labour commissioner, pollution-control board and finance ministry. For example, the DC will clear foreign direct investment proposals, give environment clearances, and decide labour and export import policies of the zone within the broad framework laid out by the government.
Among the powers the most important ones will be of deciding labour policies and environment clearances. While there is general resistance to reforming labour laws, the SEZ could herald the beginning of the controversial hire-and-fire policy in India. Since far-reaching powers would be concentrated in one position, and given that massive construction is about to happen on a large stretch of the coast fringed with mangroves, liberal environmental clearances could draw flak. The day-to-day functioning of the SEZ will be controlled by the developer. The developer will run the services and maintain infrastructure of the SEZ and the city around it for which it will charge users. The developer is expected to get special planning authority (SPA) under the guidelines being prepared by the state government. SPA will empower the developer to decide what should come up where, control building activity and infrastructure usage even on sites leased out to individual. TNN Area: 32,000 acres

Cost: Rs. 25,000 cr

Population: 10,00,000

Investment: $ 50 billion

Exports: $ 15 billion




All the areas off the main island are new areas that will be developed. Already, Navi Mumbai is in far stages of development with construction being the only thing visible in the city. Not many pics though of Navi Mumbai. 10 year old city in the making. Oh, and the Mumbai metro was approved. Funding will come from Japan partly. Similar or even better than Delhi metro!!!!

Old buildings are making way for new buildings.

The building in front of building 7 is four seasons hotel under construction. I am pretty sure it is.

Mumbai kinda lacks logistics for high rises. 90 floor buildings would be disaster in waiting if they are allowed to be built without fixing the infrastructure first.
