Two or three building are really impressive but the rest don’t deserve to be posted...please take no offence if you post these normal residential buildings ...then if a poster from say London or Berlin or Moscow or Newyork starts posting then the number of buildings will be endless bcoz most of the buildings in these cities are higher and better looking than the ones posted...
India has developed no doubt ..but these buildings don’t give the actual picture of Mumbai....majority of Mumbai is still an underdeveloped 3rd world city ..full of dirt, poverty ,slums and pollution ...Indian economy will develop but these things wont change unless the Indian Government doesn’t do anything to reduce her population.....all the credit goes to Indian economy that in spite of such a huge population its growing ...had India's population a bit less I would have easily surpassed other Asian tigers like Singapore Taiwan and China .

India has many things good (culture etc) but the first impression that a foreigner gets about India is not at all good (forget about being impressive).

While it's true that India has a long way to develop and even Bombay, which is the most developed city in India, has a long way to go, the suggestion that India's population growth is to blame for its problems is absurd. After all, China has a BIGGER population than India and its infrastructure is booming. In the long run india's population may in fact be one of its biggest economic assets. As populations in the West and China continue to decline (except the USA) the rest of the world will grow increasingly reliant on India as both a massive market and a skills and labour supplier. Population is the least of India's problems.

Yes population is inviting investments ..good for India ...but what about those people sleeping in the streets ?with population the the Indian gdp will grow but GDP per capita wont have any significant improvement....and I think unofficially toady India has a population higher than China ...most Indians dont have passports(as in the West, USA or Russia) and immigration from neighbouring poor countries like Bangladesh is booming ...

And no doubt Bombay is the economic capital of India ...but i think Bangalore and Chandigarh are better than Mumbai.

As far as China is concerned ..yes her infrastructure and economy is booming (so is India's)...but apart from some modern malls and some high rise buildings China didnt appear superior to India to me ..most Chinese are still very poor when compared to Western Europe or even Russia.

Are you saying it's impossible to house a billion people? It's not. The people sleeping on the streets have come to those cities to try and make their fortune, a better life, whatever. The reason China doesn't have (many) people on the streets is that they have movement restrictions. There has been debate about introducing these in India to to try and cap the population of cities like Bombay. Unlike China, however, India is a (sort of) democracy and people there are very tolerant of chaos and mess (unlike the Chinese) and tend to believe that if people want to go somewhere then they ought to be allowed to do so (I also tend to be of this opinion). India's problem is not the sheer number of people it's the complete lack of organisation, the loony bureaucracy and corruption. When they fix this stuff, the rest will follow.

I would say that please don't start the usually stupid India China debate and spoil the thread.

That is exactly the motive of some people here and by taking their bait, the thread will basically end for closure which maybe one of the intentions.

BTW great work Jai in compiling the list.

I ahve no intention of starting an India China debate. I am merely using China as a useful parrallel because of the similar size of the countries' population.

I'll take Sun's advice and am not going to contribute to having yet another good thread scrapped because of the flamewar that's yet again going to happen. And even regardless, that debate is something that belongs in the city discussions forum and not this thread which is solely about u/c highrises. Please.

Prelude, will reply the relevant parts of your comments later when I am free. Though, if I may now summize my reply in one emoticon: .

Cheers,
Jai

Yes, they are all approved, except for the two proposals that were mentioned on the first page. The vast majority of them (>75%) are under construction

The Indian property scene is weird in that renderings, etc. are usually released on the internet after the fact -- i.e. after construction has already begun. Most of the time, builders already sell out their projects through local advertisment (newspapers, realtors, etc.) so that by the time word that the project even exists trickles down to us, its already old news.


Check out this recent pic of part of the rising skyline anchored by the Imperial towers (see rendering at top of this page):


In that random picture alone, there are a slew of capital projects under construction replacing old buildings that we simply have no idea of.

It sucks

Can someone post proper rendrings of RNA metropolitan & RNA metropolis? The current rendrings seem to be the sketch work of a 5 years old.

Those are the renderings we have. I had to expand them from smaller-than-thumbnail size images leading to image quality degredation. They are planned to break ground in a year, though the plots have been purchased and apparently flats have been sold.

If you say that the flats have been sold then there has got to be proper rendrings. Nobody would put their money on a project where even the outlook is blurred. This raises a questionmark on the integrity of the project.
