"Penthouse - 102 floors onwards" ???
How much 'onwards' will this be? I thought this tower would have apartments at lower floors, maybe up to the 100th. What I mean is if they are planning residential floors at such height and probably some sort of a energy/air spire at the top, we can surely expect at least 600/700 metres, if not more! By the way, the design is awesome for such a slender tower

Now, then, I think nobody can deny this project is quite sure thing. And that lobby is out of the world It's somehow simillar to what we've seen in russia tower desing, but this will obviously have much more 'space' upwards. And I repeat my self it's way more interesting strucuture than Kingdom Tower is going to have.

If consider all that secrecy araund Indians developments maybe there still are undisclosed facts. Maybe everybady says 700m to actually hide the fact that it may be way taller Well maybe this reasoning is a bit naive, but just imagine, this desing with the height of say 1000m. That would beat everything else easly

The rendering makes it look terrible, but I think when it is actually built it will look great.

True that.

As well as that, from the rendering you can see that the super tall will look out of place compared to the existing Mumbai skyline.

This shouldn't be the outcome, assuming that all the proposed mid-rises are completed ahead of India Tower.

This is a hugely ambitious and aspiring project, where there are alot of people bound to be debating about the cost and why the money cannot be used for improving living standards of the poor etc. But welcome to the private sector, you have to blame the government for the welfare of the citizens.

I am fully for this project and looking forward to seeing an improved Mumbai skyline within the next 20 years or so
