Same here...it'll sort of stick out (that's an understatement, hehehe). But the design is a refreshing change from other Bombay skyscrapers.

I think a 700 mt tower will "stick out" anywhere in the world :P

Hopefully it will be complimented soon with small skyscrapers

Drilling through newly laid concrete to pile the foundations sounds plausible

Since the excavation has already reached bedrock, it's possible that there wont be any piles.

Pooh, out of the bric countries, now only Brazil doesn't have a massive supertall under construction. China has one over 600 meter, INdia, one over 700, Russia has one of 500 meters, Brazil's tallest under construction is only of 189 meters. ()

It's fine! We don't need supertalls.
