This is a stunning design: simple and instantly recognisable. The location is also perfect. I must admit to being a little sceptical that this will get built as planned, if only because it's so much more ambitious than any previous Bombay skyscrapers. However if it gets built I'll be delighted, as it will be one of the best towers in the world.

What do you mean "they"? The CWG and this are not related in anyway.

^Don't listen to him. We all know that the same bunch of 1000 trained Langurs who built the Athletes Village will be building this.

Is it really under construction??? I don't think it will get completed and the height will be reduced with design change. The tallest building of India are the Imperial Towers with 249m. They have not even completed 300+ supertall skyscrapers (I know some are under construction) and thinking of 720m building. Let's say they are building this, then will the Mumbai Television Tower be able to provide communication and terrestrial broadcasting with so many skycsrapers coming up in the city. I think it is better to build a Tower of 600+m,then build supertalls. Neverthless, I would be the happiest if the tower gets completed.
