MANCHIREVULA l APIIC Reliance Tower l 100 Floors l 450 m l App

Hyd 100-F APIIC Tower will be ready by 2010 (3 yrs u/c time)
Still no initial or final renderings BTW which is ironic. Less than 2 months to go & builders finalised. This is odd. Why so hush hush.

hopefully that's just extreme caution on their part, rather than any question mark over the project..

i really hope that's the case - this is the biggest news ever to hit the Indian sub-forums on SSC!!

just for a recap:
APIIC has given the final nod to the 100+ storey building in Manchirevula.
One of the two shortlisted bidders who applied for RFP ( 1 Indian, 1 Israeli) will be finalized soon.
Obtaining Municipal and Fire clearances will be only a formality.
Construction would start in July 2007 and expected to be completed in 3 years ...

The finalists:
(1) A consortium of Reliance Energy and Shoba Developers of Bangalore
(2) The real estate wing of Israel-based Elbit Medical Imaging (Elbit bid on its own, Indu Projects, a local developer, will join it in executing the project).
Update (7/5/2007): Reliance has bagged the 100F Trade Tower project.
The Trade tower construction will start in Sep 2007 and be completed in 3 years.
The business Dist project will be completed in 5 years.

A transcript from Cyberabad Times...
http://www.cyberabadtimes.net/2007/0...-manhattan.asp
Quote:
Hyderabad's own Manhattan
The historic Charminar might soon lose its status as Hyderabad's most famous structure. According to the APIIC, the construction of the trade tower will start by July this year and it is likely to be ready in the next three years. The state Industrial Infrastructure Corporation has given the final nod to the city's skyscraper zone, and a landmark building, to be located in a 100-acre Business District in Manchirevula near Hyderabad.

... "In the area that the building is coming up, the minimum height of a building should be 30-storeys. The building that we are making will be a 100-plus storeyed building surrounded by a series of 10-12 30-storeyed towers. It will be a compact business district like Manhattan or Nariman point," said APIIC Vice-Chairman, B PAcharya.

The proposed Trade Tower will house corporates, hotels and other establishments. 22 international players participated in the recently-concluded bidding process. "We have kept very stiff pre-qualification norms and 10 were finally selected in the pre-qualification round. Ultimately two parties have responded and we are going to finalise them shortly - one from Israel, one from India," said Acharya.

Since the proposed trade tower will be located in the skyscraper zone, getting clearances from the municipal and fire services authorities will be just a formality. According to the APIIC, the construction of the trade tower will start by July this year and it is likely to be ready in the next three years. Source: CNBC TV-18

100 storey tower surrounded by 10-12 MINIMUM 30-storey towers!!

India's tallest building in Hyderabad

TALLER THAN THE REST: The construction of tower will start by July is likely to be ready in the next three years.

Hyderabad: The historic Charminar might soon lose its status as Hyderabad's most famous structure.

The state Industrial Infrastructure Corporation has given the final nod to the city's skyscraper zone, and a landmark building, to be located in a 100-acre Business District in Manchirevula near Hyderabad.

"In the area that the building is coming up, the minimum height of a building should be 30-storeys. The building that we are making will be 100-plus storeyed building surrounded by a series of 10-12 30-storeyed towers. It will be a compact business district like Manhattan or Nariman point," said APIIC Vice-Chairman, B PAcharya.


The proposed Trade Tower will house corporates, hotels and other establishments. 22 international players participated in the recently-concluded bidding process.

"We have kept very stiff pre-qualification norms and 10 were finally selected in the pre-qualification round. Ultimately two parties have responded and we are going to finalise them shortly - one from Israel, one from India," said Acharya.

The APIIC had initially proposed to build 60-floor twin towers. Teams were sent to study the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Sears Towers in Chicago and high-rise buildings in Dubai.

Based on their reports, a single trade tower was approved. At present, the 16-storey Babu Khan Estate, built in 1987, is the tallest commercial building in Hyderabad followed by the 13-storeyed Haj House.

Since the proposed trade tower will be located in the skyscraper zone, getting clearances from the municipal and fire services authorities will be just a formality.

According to the APIIC, the construction of the trade tower will start by July this year and it is likely to be ready in the next three years.

Hyderabad to house India's tallest building

Now Hyderabad will soon house the tallest building in the country. A hundred storey trade tower surrounded by 10 to 12 rows of over 30-floor buildings, reports CNBC-TV18.

This will be the main feature of the 100-acre business district which will be constructed near Hyderabad.

After almost a year of discussion, the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation has given the final nod for the trade tower. The multi-crore project will begin latest by June and it is likely to be ready in the next three years.

Does anyone know... does the the Trade Tower complex (which includes the 100-storey + all the min. 30 storey towers) encompass the entire of the 100 acre Manchirevula CBD?

In other words, while this is a helluva thing, is this project the only project that will come up in the skyscraper zone?



Babiji, can you please also explain what other buildings are coming up? IIRC several 60-storey buildings are planned as well?

Jai, you are right. according to sources: ...
Quote:
Architect Hafeez Contractor would evaluate the designs submitted by the companies. The big tower would be developed in 30 acres in the first phase. A few more towers with 20 to 30 floors would be built around the big tower by APIIC and other prospective builders in the rest of the 70 acres.

Business Dist Manchirevula is only a part of the sky scrapper zone. There are other projects coming up in the sky scrapper zone too. Financial Dist Nanakramguda is where the ICICI building is coming up. There is more land available btn the Business Dist Manchirevula and the Financial Dist Nanakramguda. The much publicized Kokapet Golden Mile is also in the same region. So, Manchirevula, Nanakramguda, Kokapet (all within 2-4 km radius of Narsingi) region is lke a Golden Triangle forming part of the skyscrapper zone. So we can expect more...

Building Name ============= Location === Floors == Status
Aliens Space Station ======== Tellapur ====== 30 == U/C

Kokapet Golden Mile (70 acres)= Kokapet ====== ?? == Coming soon
GS Group ================= (??) ========= 60 == Coming soon
There are some other builders talking to some private land owners as well. Also, there are some plots yet to be auctioned by HMDA. Expect more announcements soon.

Manchirevula is about 2-3 km SouthEast of Narsingi. Not sure, if there is any work in progress at site as yet.

w.r.t ORR:
00.0 km: Starts from Gachibowli junction on old Bby hwy (6 lane)
02.2 km: Nankram guda/ Kajaguda road – underpass + access roads
03.0 km: joins Ph II ORR from Patancheru – T-jn Interchange (near Narsingi)

The Golden Mile project at Kokapet: HUDA has been finalising options to raise required money to refund Rs.400 crores paid by the bidders as it could not hand over their plots because of Court stay. In the mean time, an international agency offered to buy the entire layout as a single lot at the earlier auctioned price.

The Kokapet auctions in July last year generated fierce bidding. The HUDA netted Rs. 702 crores from 15 plots, each in the range of two acres to six acres totalling to 70 acres and one of the plots fetched it the highest price of Rs.14.5 crores per acre.

High Court stay: The bidders who made plans for commercial, hotel and residential projects paid up Rs. 400 crores. With the High Court granting stay over a petition that the land did not belong to Government but was part of private lands purchased during Nizam's time, the HUDA could neither develop infrastructure in the layout nor could hand over the plots to the bidders. With the stay not vacated even after eight months, the bidders represented to the HUDA and the Chief Minister to refund their money. The Government agreed to refund the money and HUDA started exploring options to mobilise the money.

Option 1: To finalise the `Development Agreement' on the Tellapur Integrated Township to get the first instalment of Rs. 405 crores from the consortium that won the bid for development of 400-acre Tellapur township. Option 2: To auction leftover plots in HUDA layouts at Nandagiri Hills, Nalagandla, Miyapur etc., to partly meet the required Rs. 400 crores to which HUDA's own resources would be pooled. Option 3: The international agency willing to buy out the entire 70-acre Golden Mile project area.
A resolution on this issue is expected by May-end... Source: The Hindu
Plans for this 70 acre Golden Mile project are yet to be announced.

Yeah

A good thing is that with Hafeez Contractor having a say in the final design (whether you like his work or not - I generally tend to), the tower's design will, I'll bet, be unique.

Also with construction starting in June, we should be seeing renderings soon! *hopes*

Jai..................I'd say Hafeez should just rework & finalize the renderings of Noida Tower & rename it Deccan Tower or Pearl Tower or something & scale it down to 120-F & submit that to APIIC. NOIDA Tower is too great of a project stuck in a limbo.

Few years ago when I used to go my college CBIT, there used to be this city bus 120M from Mehdipatna to Manchirevula. Don't know if it is still running.

If you are driving there, go past Golconda Fort, Vasavi college, Taramati Bandari and military area to reach Narsingi village. At the Narsingi village crossroads (Narsingi bus stop) make a left to go to Manchirevula. This used to be paved road for some distance enroute to Mancirevula village.

If you go beyond Narsingi towards CBIT or Gandipet, cross a temple on the left side, all the area on the left up to the Gandipet excess flow canal also falls under Manchirevula.

Hope this help .
