Many of the towers in the picture have almost been built, some have been already built and some are going to come up very soon.

I like "Ruby Mills" and the Shangri-La hotel a lot. Some of the other projects are a bit questionable though, especially that ugly residence antilia

Actually I just noticed this.

This probably should be a rendering for our new Bombay Metro!

Yeah, you can totally tell how much Mumbai's economy and real estate sector is booming and improving by looking at the updates. With each successive update, building quality and height has improved. The average height of new buildings increase some 20 floors every couple months.

A year ago there was only 1 supertall proposed, now there are 8 approved, and this is only due to barely increased FSI. Since then, this month, general FSI has been increased some 20-30 percent depending on region. So when designated CBDs and mill lands really start opening up, with their sky-high FSI, one can only imagine the increased heights of towers that will go up!

Exciting times

Mumbai in India is currently undergoing a flurry of building activity and almost buried in an avalanche of new proposals for skyscrapers to slot into its slowly expanding skyline.

The latest of these proposals comes from Singapore based architects, P and T Group, and if given the nod will comprise of two intimately connected towers which will stand at approximately 200 metres and have 54 floors.

Named the Ahuja Towers the project will be constructed from concrete and glass which makes a change from the usual steel/glass combo that is popular these days. The towers are accompanied by a 10 storey building at its front which will provide parking spaces as well as a terraced pool area on its roof, the towers curve very slightly around this structure.

The fronts of the towers are balconied and semi glazed, at different levels the joins between the towers are made quite prominent. The glazing rises of the peaks of both towers but terminate at different levels giving the twins slightly differing looks.

It's been developed by going through three different designs before the final proposal was settled on the architects settling for the two curving interconnected blocks over a single monolith.

The towers will house mainly luxury apartments which will have all the mod cons and residents will be able to look forward to the use of pools, a gym and probably a spa because all the swimming and working out is tiring, but if the get bored of those the towers will be set in amongst a nice green zone which will offer not only something nice to look at but also picturesque walks and picnic spots to go and chill out in.

Although still at the proposal stage the architects predict the towers if given the green light could be completed by 2010.

The projects for Mumbai are very beautiful in render, but they are very ugly completed! The materials of construction seem of poor.

Most of the buildings in the first post are at the very early stages of construciton. The real 'revolution' in design and materials took place only a year and a half ago, and most of those proposals started at the same time.

In short, most of these buildings haven't even begun to make a dent in the (currently ugly) skyline. But what's cool about the countless red tape and delays is that so many of these buildings will be rising together all at once That means in about 1-2 years, there's going to be a glut of high-quality buildings suddenly manifesting themselves in the skyline. People who haven't visited Mumbai every year will be shocked at the transformation

In ten years, the skyline will be something. But, we're only at the baby steps part right now
