Nice update there. Yeap, that looks like a crawler crane that was used to erect the tower crane, which will self erect from now on as the building gains height. The second tower crane looks pretty close to the first one.

It's a very congested site, I am a bit surprised by the apparent lack of concrete retaining walls in the foundation pit. I had thought that this part of Mumbai had a fair bit of loose urban fill which is usually bad news for deep foundations.

Anyways, awesome to see the site buzzing.

Strange construction site with all those poor buildings on the side. You would expect a clear building site when such a large tower is to be constructed?

True. I think each wing will have its own tower crane, maybe a third red tower crane may also follow.

But what are those white cranes? i think they are concrete booms and not cranes.

there are piles driven all along the tnrie periphery... see photo. there must be hard strata encountered there.. and hard strata for mumbai is usually deccan basaltic.. which is anyways very awesome. (though with huge dips of 20 deg)

just a thought- this building might sway by as much as 2 metres at the extreme top due to its height and proximity to tidal winds!!!!!

Hey atleast the hotel in North Korea was almost fully built. This project sounds like someone selling oceanfront property in Arizona. It's no big deal if they don't build it. Plenty of supertalls have been put on hold or just completely cancelled over the past few years, look at the hole in Chicago for example. It just seems to me on this thread people are really trying to convince everyone else that a 2362 foot skyscraper is really being built on this site right now.

What does it look like to you? A condo development? Charity center? This isn't some shitty place in the US which nobody cares about, this is probably the most prime location in Mumbai/India right now, naturally everything will be built till the end. And I don't understand the Ryugyong being mentioned here. You're comparing a suppressed nation of North Korea to the emerging powerhouse which is on it's way to be the #2 world economy? Haters will still hate, I guess .
Just relax, grab your popcorn and watch the show, as they say.

Just my opinion but is this tower going to look so 'out of place' in relation to it's surrounds in these pics ?

Check the Mumbai thread, there's plenty of supertalls/skyscrapers under construction

I believe he was talking about direct surroundings of the tower. And Yes, it will look quite odd if they won't change it. Just imagine that kind of ruined buildings just next to Burj Khalifa's entrance..

Yes, the white painted pieces of equipment are boom placers for pouring concrete and they would be rising with the floor forms.

This building is located in a prime part of one of the World's biggest cities, which is fast becoming the #3 or #4 global financial hub. Mumbai is not a huge slum like some people seem to mistake it for. It's a vibrant urban hub which is probably one of the few places in the world which could actually sustain multiple super-tall buildings without having to dip into public coffers or end up building empty speculative projects. There is fundamental social and economic growth to support real estate development, so let's not waste time in idle speculation about the drivers behind projects in India.

That's right. But I think, with the real estate market booming and high demand, more super tall structures will come into the surrounding area. It's only a matter of time. Mumbai is cramped for land and space and with the projected demand, this area (known for it's tourism and popular city spot) will get developed. Only question is how fast.

Agree with that. Moreover, the entire area is seeing a massive urban redevelopment wave with most of the sprawling mill plots getting built up into high-rise projects. In pretty short order, by the time this one tops off, the area would be looking far less run down than it seems at this time.

I'm pretty sure by the time this will have been finished, there will be plenty of highrises and skyscrapers around. When they started building BK, there was literally nothing around

Well thats the point. It was easy to build around the burj while there was nothing but empty desert. Here things will be more complicated since people from surrounding buildings won't necessarily be all ready to move, and some of these old buildings would stay just directly next to the tower. And next means just meters from it. That will make quite a contrast.

Unless ofcourse developer have allready some more or less legal plan to resolve this. Time will tell.

That doesn't look too bad actually, now that I look at it from this vantage point. I can't wait for more high rises to come in this area, the entire sea front will change.

That picture must be 5 or 4 years old. There are quiet a few more highrises since then.
