Awesome news!

The tower's height has officially been confirmed to be over 400 meters in height




Also, here's a layout plan, which gives a better perspective of the shape of the tower:



Cheers to the Indian Skyscraper Blog for the heads up!

There is a proposal for a 412m, 113 level Norman Foster designed building on or near this site.

Does anyone know whether it is in fact this development seeing as the height is now over 400m and the latest renders on this thread show a building that doesn't look anywhere near that height?

That's an interesting question... and I agree the height does not look to be 400 m in the rendering.

Do you have any more information on the tower Foster's designing? I haven't heard about a tower he's working on in Mumbai, and can't find any information on such a proposal on the net.

He is, however, confirmed to be involved in the design of a supertall tower in Hyderabad, but that proposal is at its very initial stages no hints of the design has yet been released.

Cheers

Foster is working on this. The design is a slender pyramid similar in profile to the London Bridge Tower, incorporating open air sky gardens as featured in his earlier Commerzbank tower in Frankfurt. It will be THE landmark building on the Mumbai skyline.

DB Tower
Type of project: Hotel cum residential

Developer: DB Realty

Launched in: 2008

Original completion date: 2011

New completion date: N.A.



Reason for delay: Company officials claim no delay (work is ongoing) With a built-up space of 9 lakh square feet, and a panoramic view of the Arabian
Sea, Neelkamal Realtors (a part of DB Realty Group) is coming up with a 75-storey hotel-cum-residential tower in Charni Road.

The building, scheduled to be completed in 2011, is expected to cost Rs 1,100 crore, and will be managed by Park Hyatt. According to a company spokeswoman: “The site work is going on.” However, a visit to the site shows that the ground has only been excavated and there is no construction activity yet.

Hyatt Signs Management Agreement for Five New India Properties
18 Dec 2009 | 01:20 PM ET


CHICAGO, Dec 18, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) and DB Hospitality Pvt. Ltd., part of DB Group, today announced management agreements under which Hyatt will operate five new hotel properties in India.

If he wasn't there then I would have had a field day inside. I pleaded with the site engineer to take just one pic but he didn't budge. So I just went to the 3rd floor of the adjacent building and took a few pics and a video.

Here are 2 of the pics. I'll upload more later along with the video which shows an excavating truck doing its thing at the right most corner of the site.
