MUMBAI | Projects & Construction(2)

-------==--=--==-------
UPDATED ON 13 MAY '07: In less than 7 months,
the number has risen to 75+ towers!

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

Hi,

This thread showcases Mumbai's approved and under construction tallest towers over 40 stories tall. As of 24 September, 2006, these include 46 [edit- now 75!] buildings.

Mumbai has made incredible, Dubai-like strides in skyscraper development, a natural factor as the city as a whole continues to modernize and development, and because of the insanely high property values.

These towers were built using only a FSI of ~ 1.5. In a year or so, Mumbai's Mill and the former Dharavi Slum lands will be redeveloped as skyscraper-laden CBDs, with a FSI of upwards of 4+. This means that not only will the boom continue in spite of low FSI outside those areas, but those areas in praticular will see explosive supertall growth.

From a mere 3 new towers approved over 40 stories circa September, 2005 to now over 46 just one year later, one can only imagine how many skyscrapers will rise into the Mumbai skies in the next decade!

Cheers,
Jai

Amazing designs!

But why only residential highrises? In a country which experiences such a boom as India, you would also expect to see lots of office skyscrapers being built.

hmm.... i have been to mumbai countless times, and i forsee a dubai like setting where quantity takes over quality. I see a few of the buildings listed above as being very classy and beautiful, but a few others seem as if they were put together in less that 10 minutes, for example the Orchid Enclave seems repulsive to me whilst the Sumer Burhani Park seems like a suitable project for this city.

Some of the buildings look nice - some other buildings are so ugly that they just shouldn't be built at all.

Hi

I've updated the first post to reflect the new buildings that have been approved or broke ground in the last two months. The thread was created in late september, with 41 towers above 40 stories u/c. In less than two months, that number has risen to 59!

The following have been added:
Shreepati Heights, Mumbai: 75 stories
Oberoi Skyz, Worli: two towers of 65 stories (possibly 80 stories) each
Imperial Heights, Andheri West: three towers of 65 stories each.
K. Raheja Project, Worli: 45 stories
RNA @ Central Park, Chembur: 45 stories.
Crescent Tower, Tardeo: 42 stories
Reliance Tower, Altamount Road: 42 stories
NG Royal Heights, Andheri: 42 stories
Sarovar Dharshan, Mulund: two towers of 40 stories each

The latest trend in Mumbai is building mixed-use towers as opposed to purely residential or commerical. This usually means a public and private car park underground, a large, several-storey mall that serves as a building's podium, usually with a landscaped park on top, and a building with the lower/mid levels having hotels and office space, with the uppermost floors residential. Of course, the tallest buildings are still many purely-residential projects, like Oberoi Skyz, Lodha Bellissimo, The Imperial, etc.

For a long time, the Mumbai government was very much against the construction of commerical highrises, due to lack of appropriate infrastructure. In addition, there was no properly defined commercial CBD for new construction. With economic growth and infrastructure development picking up in a big way, and the redevelopment of the Dharavi slumlands and the defunct Cotton Mill lands into international-standard CBDs, that is slowly changing.

Due to the lack of housing, there will always be a huge demand for residential skyscrapers, but the next big thing does seem to be commercial skyscrapers. Perhaps trying to signal in concrete (no pun intended) terms the government's new pro-commercial skyscraper support, National Textile Corporation (NTC) has a commercial skyscraper project that has broken ground, called the India International Trade Centre, to be about 72-75 stories at Dadar. The IITC in question got held up in a land dispute, but apparently is still on track for completion by 2009. Still no rendering has been released yet, though.

The tower is supposed to be a "signature" tower that will "transform" the mill lands into a commerical center. As such, according to reports, many other commercial skyscrapers have been proposed by builders (unfortunately no more details given at this stage) around that area.

There are three other commercial skyscraper projects that have been announced and land aquired for them. The first one, by builders K Raheja Universal, called Raheja One is also supposed to be a "signature" office tower. The rendering and location details are to be released in 2007. Orbit Corporation also has a 50-some storey commerical tower coming up at Marine Lines. This project I guess was supposed to be secret, but was accidently listed as an upcoming project on their website for a week, before someone got in trouble and took it down. Thankfully, google cached (caught?) it. Reliance Tower is a residential/commerical tower under construction, that will house Reliance Industries' corporate headquarters.

There are also a number of commerical highrise projects in the 20-40 storey range.

Some are good...but Orchid enclave, Ashok towers and Planet Godrej are real eyesores and should never be built.

What has happened to all the architects around the world?...any good looking builidng is saved for dubai. Except for a few ones, the rest is really crap--a box with no asthetic sense(not only in mumbai but around the world).

I agree with Orchid Enclave and Ashok towers (though I think it may look better in person), but I actually rather like Planet Godrej. It's a unique tower nonetheless.

It should be noted that all three of those buildings (and buildings like The Legend, RNA Mirage, etc.) were designed in the early part of this decade (and are all well under construction). Seemingly until about last year, all towers in Mumbai were designed wiht mostly concrete facades. This was at the begining of the economic boom, where such materials were used to save money in construction.

Nowadays, glass is the new thing. Every new tower above 30 floors (with few exceptions) has glass facades. When the mill lands and dharavi open up for development in the next year, and the boom really begins in earnest, I doubt there will be as many concrete slabs defining the skyline.

Cheers,
Jai

The biggest load of BS there was. Dont flatter yourself. Outsourcing has helped many American companies stay competitive and in some cases, stay alive.

For long the developing world has heard the US harp on how globalization is a two way street, and now that it is finally become a two way street, there seems to a problem.
