they're still digging the foundations according to some Mumbai forumers, and they also say that it's nearly impossible to see what is going on due to the high barriers erected around the construction site and tight security.

Still digging ? I find that hard to believe. It's going to be 10 months since we've' seen any updates.

Here's a few problems...
1. "Marathaman" seem's to be the only guy posting from the India forums (far as I can see). Who posted this Back In July.

Now he's convinced that It's in the works (as in Prep). But yet we haven't seen any pictures to prove that...
2. He claims they (developer, government,etc) are avoiding Publicity. But yet It's been said somewhere that It's been completely sold. There was Also an article mentioning the tower.
3. There was some confusion as to where the construction site was. Back a few months.
So how do we know this is the actual site ?
4. If India likes to keep tall towers or skyscrapers' low key and not have publicity. Then explain why "World One" has been made public ? And why not this one ? when this tower is projected to be 700m~
5. How can some of the Mumbai forumers say there still digging, when the site has very tighen security ? then they say " It's nearly impossible to see what is going on due to the high barriers erected around the construction site and tight security" So then how do they know if there's been any progress ?...
6. I've visted the India forums (Mumbai). And there's many open holes, 1 person said security is tight. But yet "Mystic" some how seen progress, or he couldn't make a statment about the digging progress. Then a post by "Simba404" said this -

So then why hasn't anyone taken some pics from those buildings' to sh*t us up ?

P.s. I have no Problems with any of the forum members' that I have metioned. I'm just trying to make sense of all this. Sorry to anyone That I have Offend. And Mod's Please Don't ban me

Is there a Link ? I've checked their website and there's nothing about the tower. Also on Ctbuh has the companies projects' and the India tower is not listed...I'm sending them an email (Ctbuh).
Here's the projects they have worked on -
http://buildingdb.ctbuh.org/?do=comp...n%20&%20Toubro

Btw, Ctbuh has the tower's status as a proposal only.

I think this is UC too. That looks like foundations work to me. But we'll probably have to wait for an official announcement from the developers before this thread can be moved.

This definately looks to be under construction. Have seen many more super talls in the under construction category which were in a similiar stage and moved to supertalls section.

Time to move this one as well and change status to under construction.

These would look fantastic standing together. I seriously think they should consider doing exactly that.
