Looks like they are getting ready to pour a raft. I wonder if they will do it all in one piece. The haven't even dug out the third wing yet.

the article is two years old but not many hotels have been added during the period

Indian cities in general are way short on hotel rooms in the 3-5 star segment.


Plus this will be completed in what? 2016-2017? thats a long time to go.

Wow, that's a crazy looking jobsite with the offices hanging off the side of the excavation and the depth is nuts!

Welcome to the free market, private firms dont need to worrry about citizen welfare. It's the Government's duty to improve the standard of living of the Indian people.

So you cannot really bring the tower into the arguement, as the finance is not taken from Government revenue and therefore there is no opportunity cost, where state infrastructure could have been improved.

still cant see the foundation for the 3rd core. Is it common to see cores being constructed one after the other? Thanks for the updates desiguy.

I don't want to be rude guys, but the foundation site seems way too small for a building that size. Just compare it to e.g. the Shanghai tower...

And what about those renders on the first photo? Where is the proposed tower?

Check this out. Even the foundation works of such a small scale development (compared to a 720 m high building) like the Sarajevo City Center in Bosnia, has a larger hole...

This has been discussed earlier and as told by our fellow forumer Larven,

"They managed to fit it just in!"

As for the renders in the first pic, they are the previous proposals and the latest pyramidical one is the final design that has been approved. Also, unlike Shanghai where they created an entire area to make skyscraper, Mumbai is undergoing a change where existing crowded areas are seeing new towers. Hence many projects are just "squeezed in".

As for the how they managed to fit in, you might want to check the following diagrams that shows how the triangular foundation fits inside that rather small pit.

Come on, the whole foundation is only like 10% larger than my apartment building's, which has about 250 flats.

Maybe. That doesn't mean this is possible. Anyway, we will have to wait for a few more months to see how this one comes up. Until then we can just speculate. Besides there are more proof regarding the triangular tower coming up rather than it not coming up - or it ending up as a much smaller tower. We will find out soon.

it all depends on geometery. the pix you showed us seem to me that a rectangular building will be built where as a triangular pyramid if you will sort of building is being built. so therefore not much surface area is required. of course even to me it does seem squeezed but to an extent where everything just works out fine. God willing India tower will soon rise up and be the pride of mumbai.

So? have you seen what the can fit in those stamp-size places in cities like New York and Hong Kong? This foundation is easily big enough for an 720 meter tower.

There are a lot of factors. One cannot assume just based on the size of the hole. You have to consider things such as type of construction, type of soil, etc.

Also, the excavation in Mumbai looks MUCH deeper than the one in Sarajevo. So I don't think it's a good comparison.

Anyways, the engineers should know what they're doing. They know what is at stake and are unlikely to build anything of this magnitude that has some chance of failing.

Have you seen the foundation of some Chinese buildings that are nothing but cylindrical pipes?
