Sadly that is where possibly the second tallest man made structure will rise, no lakes around this one. Maybe in a few years those hundred year old buildings will be gone.

Where does it say this will be 700m? I can't change the thread title based on a rumour. It needs to be verified.

This certainly would be mind boggling, if realized that way.

In China and Hong Kong they have allowed for large open areas around structures of this scale.

I was thinking they could literally transport the building materials by the sea to the docks near the gateway and then move them from truck by there.

Also was talking to a friend and Indian railways still run cargo from the docks and harbour about 1.5 km from this site. They can use the trains to transport till the docks and then use a truck to drive from there.

thats one of the big pluses of building in Sobo. The freight trains run all the way to victoria docks on the eastern side. You dont have to hire trucks for long.


Plus I am sure that they are do the transporting via the trucks at night (2am-3am) and then stack up there for construction next day

all they need is a paint job to look good.

Doubt it will get built and if it does wont look good in Mumbai because it would stick out like a sore thumb.

Dear sir,

why dont you have a look at the number of supertall projects in Mumbai?

Just goto my signature and click on the Mumbai super tall section which lists the various projects which are in different stages of development from concept to under construction.?

Thats what I've been thinking as everything else in Mumbai's skyline is below 300m, but who knows it may fit in well in the end.
