I agree the project is on hold....But What do you mean, this doesn't belong in this thread...It can be on the thread on its own right for a fact that it is possible in 4 years this beast will be standing up...and how do you know the monsoon is a poor excuse....This thing is on hold because of the monsoon and for no other reason at the present....Now stop following your baseless judgements....when you make a statement like that...its only decent when you prove it.

It seems at the very moment, it is on hold. But the cause of this is not serious at all to worry about. Just think of this as a formality....lol
They are calling it U/C because they know it will pick up construction pace soon and that it is not as serious as the real "on hold" where anything can happen, and refer to CTBUH

This thread is like a metronome. Back and forth, back and forth. Let's lock this up until there is PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF or ACTUAL DOCUMENTATION that this project is going ahead.

No offense Soroban but I too can just make up facts and put them down as "documentation".

Then why don't you prove it's because of the moonsoon its on hold????? They are building huge towers like crazy in the city right now, but this tower seems dead for now, so it can't be because of the moonsoon, otherwise nothing would be build in the city right now. use your logic and you will come too the conclusion that my opinion isn't nonsens!!!! Move it to ON HOLD.

This thread is closed for now, as construction is halted for the time being and argueing about it seems to go on.
If there is a proof of continued construction, please give us moderators a hint there and we'll open it again:

Thank you.

MUMBAI | India Tower | 720m | 2362ft | 125fl | On Hold

I think this news makes worth reopening this thread. Well actually making new one since there is no old one anywhere

News are still not official but we're getting slowly there and I thing we should at this point have place to discuss it.

From Indian subforum:

Quote:
DB group all set to sell Hilton for over Rs 400cr

MUMBAI: The Hilton Hotel near Sahar airport is on the verge of being sold for more than Rs 400 crore, a year after the five-star hotel was put on the block by its owner, Dynamix Balwas (DB) Hospitality. TOI has learnt that the 1.2- acre property, formerly known as Le Royal Meridian, is expected to be sold to a US-based Patel family with interests in the hotel business.

DB Group sources said the company plans to raise around Rs 900 crore through the sale of five hotels in Ahmedabad, Pune, Jaipur, Mundra and Mumbai. These include the 63-room Le Meridien Hotel in Ahmedabad, the upcoming Grand Hyatt in Pune, the 125-room under-construction Hyatt Palace in Mundra and a 40-room fort-turned-hotel in Mukundgarh near Jaipur.
...
..
The arrests affected the group's on-going realty projects in Mumbai when lenders stopped funding them. DB Realty's 11 residential projects in the city were stalled, but sources said a fresh infusion of funds recently will ensure that they are completed on time.

One of DB's most ambitious projects, the 125-storey luxury hotel, the iconic India Tower (Park Hyatt Hotel), got stop-work notice last May after the BMC asked the company to pay premium and development charges running into a few hundred crores for the various building concessions it had sought. The firm moved the Bombay high court, claiming it owed the BMC only Rs 20 crore. A DB official said work will recommence on this project in the next two to three months.

i really hope that most of these projects come back, not only india tower, but also the 3 dlf towers, the 2 orchid heights and the 3 orchid crown buildings.

9 supertalls being on hold is just too much

but this is good news and i hope the situation really goes in favor for some projects in near future

did you miss the building when it first was announced? we were waiting for it to get U/C and then we waited for updates and waited and waited then we saw new photos finally and nothing changed - on hold

i think there were two cranes in it already and then the big shock, by now i already gave up home and thought it was pretty much gone for good

They should feed the huge population first, improve the infrastructure, get ride of the big slums, improve the mentality, ect ect..
.. Otherwise this tower will not make any sense in a country that has a lot of defects in its society.

That's the responsibility of the government ...not the private sector.(which is constructing this building)
What you propose is akin to asking General motors or any private corp. in the US to provide healthcare to all people.

Who is the "they" you are referring to?
India would love to get rid of it's slums but it has a big enough heart not to turn back the millions of refugees who came in from Bangladesh.The Municipal authorities in Mumbai have already built houses for many slum dwellers.I hope you don't consider these as defects of society.
