Thats the real question.

I'm guessing each side is about 60 meters at the base?

they do work on countless projects
And adding their name to developement adds value.
It could , and usually does, mean that its an intern or new employee working on it.

where the hell is peoples analysis of suposed information?

untli fosters have given us a detailed spec of what they are being paid to do we have no idea about it.
And even then, there is no garuantee that anyone will fund them , (they aint cheap)let alone a 125 story project.
a 27 story building is just peanuts in construction terms, they go up all the time everywhere in the world and cost **** all.
a mega tall is a completely different undertaking
Look it takes about 2 years for this sort of thing to T O. So add a year for (indian) hiccups we should have the result by 2014.
If we dont have a conformed spec from a reliable source from within the industry for 125 stories by 2012, then my money says it will be something rather less dramatic.
i'm analitical & pragmatic, i'm not negative
but is there anyone here whose a wee bit nieve?
Haha...freudian slip?!

theres nothing about this on fosters website, which one would think there would be.
And nowhere has anyone said whos financing it. This is BIG news in any city.
So where are the facts?
We know something is proposed.
We know some groundwork IS going on.
But we dont know what that work is for as no one in the buisnes has said
'this is what were doing'.
the document posted for the work quote for thr cladding is from some wiered chinise website if anyone had bothered to check.
I , on the other hand, am now in direct communication with the guy at wsp whose been working on it.
hes is not in the office but out and about in blackburn and will get back to me asap.
i will report what he says and what we can conclude about it tomorow.
ive also mailed fosters.
until someone in the buisness says something definate i am sceptical.
i cant be arsed with hopefull rumours.

Even though you are hanging on to the point that nothing is seen on Fosters website you need more knowledge of Mumbai political scene. There are different stupid good for nothing civil liberties groups and mass appeal craving politicians who will lose no opportunity to train their guns on any big projects. If they smell any big project they drag them courts using public interest litigation or any other option they have. Then there are protests as usual claiming environmental damage or some other sh*t. Even if the builders win the case it will get delayed by years. That is exactly DB is worried about. Did you ever wonder why so much of security and secrecy with this project? They obviously do not want undue media attention at least till the project takes off the ground. The other Mumbai supertall "World One" already ran into some protests by local politicians/people for various alleged problem due to the project. That is exactly they are trying to avoid

IIRC reading in SSC India page for this project that they asked Fosters to not advertise as a part of the deal. I need to dig up that post.

Edit: Read that post below.

But we all have seen the work going on and at quite good rate and soon we will see the structure come up. Even if there is no acknowledgement we have the visual proof and the site matches the renders so I don't see any reason to doubt .. All evidenced point to something similar to render and none to nothing or something else !!!
just relax and enjoy the show :P

I get all that.
But whenever they do go public , and they will have to, they're gonna face whatever opposition they're going to.
It makes no odds what stage the project is at.
And that is another reason that points me in the direction of a tower of this type not being built in Mumbai.
Exactly the same happened in London over the Millenium Tower.The climate in the city made it unviable.
And I dont think, whatever we might want, that the climate is right in Mumbai now.
Anyway both Fosters and WSP are being very tight lipped, on 'instructions from our client'.
take that to mean whatever you like

Any updates from your contact who had gone to Blackburn? Any response from Fosters? Please keep us posted.

The "weird Chinese site" that you referred to is Baidu which is the #1 Chinese language search portal. Not sure if you are aware of it, but Baidu is Google's competition in China and is listed on the NASDAQ.

India has chronic poverty issues, I personally think they should address that anything else. I have been to India, beautiful country with a lot of charms and definitely one of a kind place but c'mmon, there are homeless people everywhere...Slumdog Millionaire was no movie, it was for real. Power trip gotta be on hold and people first!

Gawd people! go complain and rant in the corner, not in this thread. We already had enough of the posts of people complaining how poor India is and how this will never be built. Let's leave this thread for updates and see what happens with this project.

While I agree with your honest intentions that INDIA should take care of its homeless first before investing in such fancy projects, let me also inform you that as a democratic country, a private developer has the rights to build such an extravagant thing. I fail to understand how people forget that projects like these also means a few hundred more jobs for people here. Should India wait for all its poor to become rich before starting out with projects like these? I dont understand!

I do not wish to derail this thread once more (and have my long, nice posts deleted by the mods! Thats a total waste of labor! )
