MUMBAI | Projects & Construction

Hi

--------==--=--==-------
First, some thread background music to set the theme Play this in the background as you read the thread
Bombay Rockers (feat. Overseas) -- Ari Ari


--------==--=--==-------

Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India is experiencing a huge building boom. Over the last two years, literally thousands of new mid and highrise construction has taken place, with towers getting higher and higher.

Last year, Mumbai's tallest was 40-odd stories. This year, its to be 82, with current FSI at 4. In the next two years, CBD development in Mumbai's former mill lands and Dharavi will see a huge number of skyscraper and, due to FSI being at 8, very possibly supertall construction.

Below are all known projects in Mumbai currently under construction, 25 stories and taller. These are all confirmed, approved projects (except for the handful of proposals labeled as such) that are either under construction or have broken ground. The proposals I have included are likely to be approved, as they are either well-reported about in the construction press, or from builders websites who have a 100% project completion rate (with no cancelled projects.) There are other, less-confirmable skyscraper and highrise proposals I have not included.


So, without further ado, Mumbai's major highrise buildings u/c, compiled from the threads at the bustling Skyscrapercity.com India forum. Click on the thumbnail for a larger image:

Thanks for the updated list. BTW, would it be a good idea to include buildings less than 25 floors, possibly to be consistent with Emporis' 12 & over rule?

Spyguy,

My worry of posting buildings under 25 stories is that the list will simply be too long and unwieldly to look at. Just a quick glance at property websites shows that listed buildings 15-24 stories under construction would go into the couple hundreds, and you know that only a small fraction of mid/lowrise real estate available is posted online, as the vast majority of demand is satisfied and sold through local realtors, newspapers, etc. Views of the city posted in the India subforum show vast redevelopment and new construction of such buildings in the city.

My objective is not to have a complete list of every project in Mumbai, but instead to concentrate on signiature buildings (that we have renderings for!) that will significantly change the skyline and character of the city, and also to showcase India's unique highrise architecture.

I'm actually considering in the next couple months to make the cutoff at 30-35 stories and above, as more and taller projects are announced, following the mill/slum/industrial land redevelopment plans.

Cheers,
Jai

There isn't a height limit per se, but for a very long time until recently, Mumbai suffered under incredibly restrictive FSI, due in large part to underdeveloped infrastructure, socialist anti-development laws and poor planning.

With massive economic growth in the last several years, its changing -- much better infra is being developed including a metro system, freeways, flyovers, more capable power grid, etc.; huge strides have been made in the legal side of things, allowing for laws to be passed helping and not hindering civic development; new wholescale approaches to planning (such as the mill land redevelopent, or the Dharavi slum redevelopment) allowed for better civic development as a whole that opened up much more space, aids in the economic and educational to previously impoverished tenants, etc.

This legal tangle is exactly why developers make public few specifics regarding building height, final designs, etc. until well after construction is started -- or even in many cases finished! It is for this reason they also downplay heights of buildings, often giving the height in # of tenantable stories, omitting pinnacle heights, roof heights, etc. and disincluding lobbies, podiums, bases, and retail floors that often contribute significantly to the building's total height -- and would in every other country in the world be proudly given as part of the height (as should naturally be!)

India is unique in the idiotic way developers downplay how tall their buildings are, and only reluctantly admit they even have projects! Compare this to the rest of the world where project sizes are exaggerated, and vision and proposed projects are trumpeted and hyped up only to never materialize outside the drawing board. In India, skyscraper enthusiest have to pull teeth to get information on projects, where elsewhere it developers fall over themselves to give details!


Anyway, to better address your question, the two biggest watershed developments were the bitter, multi-year legal fight against red-tape, socialism and corrupt planners to clear the 60-storey Tardeo towers, and the battles to redevelop the defunct mill lands and clear the Dharavi slum. These have opened the floodgates so to speak, and now, projects have been shooting skyward in heights. A revolution in real estate affairs (so to speak) is underway, where builders are now thinking big and fighting for the title of the tallest building!

Each relatively tall proposal has an uphill battle to fight to get cleared, but things are changing in a big way. Especially now that it has shown that development leads to economic growth and the fact that the real estate sector itself is booming and demand is seemingly inexhaustable.

How many of these renders are approved? I've had some experience in India and the bureaucracy is madness. I'd be so surprised if all of these got built, but I would be very excited. Mumbai has INCREDIBLE potential - it's a unique city in Asia. Now, if they could just elimimate the Rent Act they might be able to fix up some of the beautiful old tenaments before they all fall down and Mumbai will start to look really smart.

Hi

You're right, the bureaucracy is madness, especially dealing with project approval.

All of these projects are approved and were posted on either architect, builder, or real estate websites. All of these projects have aquired properties of the builders stated for them. Nearly all of them except a couple have broken ground. Most of them are under construction, with some nearing completion. A generalized statement could be made that the vast majority (all?) of the projects here will be completed by 2008 -- of course, between now and then, even more, newer projects will have been started.

The nature of that very same bureaucracy makes it virtually impossible for the skyscraper enthusiast to come across 'vision' or 'planned' renderings. Hell, its hard enough to find renderings of u/c projects In the case of Mumbai, without fail, when a builder/architect/etc. put out a rendering, that building was built -- a 100% completion track record. With a couple exceptions that are detailed below, these buildings will get built and, as I mentioned, actually are being built

A couple exceptions:
1. Raheja Excelsior - Nothing is known about this project, nor the exact location of the plot. The rendering came from the builder's, Raheja, website, and its unique in that its a very rough rendering. Perhaps a project in its very initial stages?

2. 50 storey Unnamed Proposal, unknown location project - TOI printed this rendering as an u/c building, but mislabeled it. They obviously got the rendering from a local builder, but not much else is known about this project, or even if it is a real one.

Obviously, having little info on these projects doesn't mean they won't get built, but its best to be conservative until more info comes out.


Anyway man, all in all, expect to be surprised These buildings are most definately going to be built.

India is really booming and some of the designs are quite spectacular.

But I've noticed that all of these proposals are residential highrises (with the exception of some hotels). Isn't there any demand for office skyscrapers, especially when the economy is growing at such rates?

There are a few like the IITC proposal, but usually (for some reason) they prefer campus-style offices and you'll find many midrise glassy office buildings as well.

Jai, Congrats! I think this is a very great step for India especially Mumbai. All the buildings are very hi-tech-looking and glassy too. Especially Lodha Belissimo (CMIIW). I love that building.

Thanks you guys for all the comments you have left here- mostly positive I must say- but there's still a little amount of trepidition which needs to be exercised here. The issue is that there's no shortage of private initiative in India, which means we're going to see to alot more of these futuristic buildings in Indian cities, but the supporting infrastructure is still woesome. Agreed, there's substantial progress in many cities on this front, but the bottomline remains that most Indian cities cannot support urban growth as it stands today. That's why alot of the sheen of these costly projects pales away, and would remain so until, approapriate urban planning measures are in place.

Don't get me wrong: Mumbai is fantastic with very beautiful views and vibrant economic and demographic figures, but it still lacks abit on the utilities front, and unfortunately not much is being done on this front. Anyways, I know that Mumbai is a dynamic place and things will fall into their proper perspective once the consensus builds up towards it!
