yes the site was not well maintained however, construction is very much on .....the base has been prepared for a 700+ mtr tower...you can compare the last update and this one...

I was near the site earlier today and could hear a lot of noise. Its is heavily guarded. Was with my mom so couldn't explore much. Again, I am pretty much astonished by seeing the size of that erm.. hole. Trust me, from the outside, you wont get even an inkling of a 30 feet deep pit beyond those walls. Great update though

Now we await some clearer images.

It does not look like the foundation of a triangle shaped supertall. It does not even look like one corner, of a foundation for a triangle shaped supertall. It does not look like much has changed since the earlier pictures. It does look like a lot of people working on it!

look at the the Guy in the red jump suit in the last pic on the right as a frame of reference! That's one massive foundation - and the structure has indeed started to rise! With all the On-HOLDS post recession - this good enough! Lets move this to U/C!!

Guys did you notice something in the pic 2 of my updates....look carefully at the bottom right...do see the structure pillars coming up...isn't that good enough to know that this tower is actually U/C....

thats cause they could not go at it full blast in the mumbai monsoons. (which are heavy)

I am sure that they will power in the next few months to come...

Usually construction in Mumbai powers on in the winter months when the temp is nice from Nov to Feb.

Lets see what happens.



Plus i feel the mods need to make a judgement on this if the pics indeed indicate that its under construction.

Yeah great pics MOD.

That's one hell of a deep hole and bear in mind that is only one of the three wings of this building. There's nothing proposed about what's going on in that hole!
