SD Towers, Mumbai. 252m !!!!!!!!!!!

Tallest twin towers

Gayatri Ramanathan / Mumbai November 10, 2005
The Rs 500 cr project in Mumbai will be a landmark structure.

Mumbai will soon be home to the country’s tallest building, a 252 metre-high twin residential tower designed by renowned architect Hafeez Contractor.

The Rs 500 crore project, in Tardeo, Central Mumbai in the N P Mills compound, is being developed by construction major Shapoorji Pallonji in a joint venture with Dilip Thacker under the banner of S D Corporation.

The twin residential towers of 60 storeys each are expected to be a landmark in the Indian construction industry, designed to withstand both cyclone velocity winds and earthquakes.

Said Joseph Colaco, president of the Houston-based CBM Engineering and structural consultant on the project, “Since geographically, Mumbai is prone to both cyclones and earthquakes, we have designed the towers to withstand both cyclone winds and earthquakes. While designing the building, we took into consideration the following factors: Mumbai’s climate, wind pressure, proximity to the sea, height of the building, various safety aspects and possibility of earthquakes.”

Coalco points out that shorter buildings are at greater risk compared to high rise structures of 50 or more storeys during earthquakes. “As the earthquake waves are horizontal, shorter buildings tend to get flattened out. With taller buildings, the waves take more time to travel up, and the structure builds up resistance with different sections often responding in opposing directions.”

One of the prominent features of the building include s large and specialty windows, designed to withstand the immense wind pressure at higher levels. The glass used is heat resistant and is specially strengthened to withstand high wind pressure at higher altitudes.

The frames are aluminum composite panel, fire resistant and having a high fire rating. It is leak proof and less prone to corrosion. The window glass is laminated to prevent breakage in case of quakes making them safer.

The laminated glass cracks but does not disintegrate. However, the windows are minimum openable as too many open windows will create problems at higher altitudes.

The building also offers maintenance free permanent exterior façade, split air conditioning in all apartments, 24 large capacity high speed elevators, a fully equipped health club and spa, indoor swimming pool, restaurant and bar, a mini theatre and guest rooms and nine levels of car parking.

The towers will offer spacious apartments and sprawling penthouses approximately measuring 1400 sq ft to 7500 sq ft. The view from the first residential level of the buildings will be above the roof levels of most of the surrounding buildings and will over look the entire skyline of Mumbai on either side, with a commanding view of the Arabian Sea.

These are premium residential projects having exquisitely planned apartments and best of facilities and amenities having international standards. This project is an example of the global standards that the company always strives to achieve.

Go Mumbai!!!!!!!!

Yea I think they changed the hight. Most of the projects and their details are kept in wraps. But this one is ok. Finally Mumbai has something tall .
