This is Mumbai now:





The point of these pictures is to show the people how fast the city is changing. I'm sure by the time this tower finishes it will have loads more accompanying it.

Humnn..That six 65 floors tower will be under construction in next couple of months...

regarding the 140 floor tower....If you guys remember Golden Triangle City Centre???? Anyone.....it's back in reckoning ....yes, Its coming if all goes well....

here's more on it...an old article...

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...how/482058.cms

http://www.gurgaon.co.in/news/news-g...state-map.html


Little Para from the article..

On the designing side, the city will cover up the area of 380 acres and the 80 acres area of the land will be accumulated by the four skyscrapers alone. The remaining area will be utilized as greens. In fact, foreign investors and eminent real estate agents gurgaon have been showing keen in the project.

cheers

First off great photos and updates from MOD, India101 and Desiguy.

Ok I have some more news on this, I have cousins who live in Mumbai and asked one of them if they could wander over and have a look and try and get some photos. They did go over to the site last week, but told me that security is super tight.

The whole area is cordoned off, but he saw massive amounts of equipment, workers etc going in and out of the site. They said there appeared to be a lot of western people in there as well, maybe construction engineers? Also they saw a few CCTV's around the site as well.

They did manage to get some small information, they told my cousin it could be completed by 2015, he did say the site is massive, hasn't seen such a big building construction site in Mumbai ever. He thinks the prices of the units etc could be starting at around $1 million Australian dollars, or at least that is what he got told by some guys who appeared to be a agent, maybe someone on here can shed more light on this?

I thought it sounded like Golden Triangle City. I never thought that would ever be spoken of again.

And apparently Hyderabad just approved some 100fl towers.

Got your PM and will ask my cousin again India101 but from what he told me the project is in fully swing and very busy, he said he saw a busload of workers coming in as well? So the workers aren't living on the site? Do you know about this?

Missed its target???
Dubai and Shanghai doesn't have the exclusive rights to build skyscrapers, other cities also can build skyscrapers too.
Just let you know, Hong Kong and New York City all have more skyscrapers than Shanghai, and many other cities are catching up too
