^Not surprising since the builders are trying their best to avoid publicity.

This was posted yesterday in the Indian forum:

This project is definitely huge, and the work is going on very smoothly.

There are like 10 security guards surrounding that place. Who would want to get into a quarrel with them for taking a stupid picture. Let the building rise up than I am sure you will get regular updates.

Really ? well I doubt they avoided CTBUH. Which states it's only a proposal...
http://buildingdb.ctbuh.org/index.ph...ilding_id=9199
why would they avoid publicity when this is India's 1st supertall tower?... Also if "MYSTIC" has seen this progress (not saying he's lying). how come he can't take a picture from a distance ? if it's some 15m~ deep/wide then it should be visible in some degree where you wouldn't need to be too close to the site.

^There were photos of the site posted earlier in the thread, you can dig them up if you want.

They are trying to avoid publicity because a project of such massive scale could easily become a political football/hot potato, like most other massive projects in India.

Once a decent amount of construction has taken place, they'll publicize it better.

Oh, and this is not India's first supertall tower. There is one supertall u/c and several proposals and site-prep

We'll just have to wait...the site is in a very congested location and heavily guarded and surrounded with high barriers. Mumbai forumers are lazy and it's too much of a pain in the ass to find a decent vantage point

Anyways, we have had a few forumers who are "on the inside", so to speak, inform us that the project has been fully sold and will definitely be going up.

The problem is, we need sources. ''Some forummers" is not a really good source....

I know. That is why this building is still in the "proposed" section.

Preparation started along time ago. The debate is whether or not it is under construction.

I don't know about that, but the system is not set up to support tall buildings - there is no planning, so all the supporting infrastructure has to be built after the fact.

And atleast, political opinion in a large section of the polity considers such ostentatious construction to be against their ideological principles.
