If found this, but it doesn't have any dimensions. I just can't grasp the concept of a 720M tall tower on what I think is a foundation the size of the TransAmerica pyramid in San Fransico. Which is only 260M.

It's about the size of the base of the CN tower, it could work!

It's still cheating, marvel or not. Just like the Burj. IMHO of course.

Both Fosters and WPS have told me the details are confidential.

Yes this project is diffrent from Lodha's World One Tower. In that case there are going to be at least two 100+ towers in Mumbai.

Let's keep our fingers crossed, this will be built,
not like some other tall slender towers.
eg. Spire - Chicago and Russian Tower - Moscow.
Normally I don't like spires either (height cheaters),
but this 200 meter spire is not only an engineering marvel,
but is a proper looking extension of the building.
2 100+ towers...Go India!

Wow that is some great info!

This building is really going to be an architectural marvel!

This looks a lot like what we are seeing in the pics of the foundations.
