HYDERABAD | Lanco Hills Signature Tower | 604m | 1982ft | 112 fl | App





Hi guys,


^ EDIT- Image of the finalized design of the Lanco Hills Signature Tower. Please see new renderings several posts below that show the updated design! The prerenderings in this first post is kept for posterity's sake!

Mark my words: the city of Hyderabad, the 6-million people strong IT powerhouse located in the state of Andhra Pradesh in Southern India, will very soon crash into the ranks of major skyscraper cities in a big way.

"Cyberabad" (as its popularly called, owing to its huge IT industry) has emerged as the most pro-densification, pro-verticalization metro in the Indian Subcontinent -- even more so than Mumbai, and that says a lot.

Aiming to become the most investor-friendly city amongst the competing the southern Indian IT/tech cities of Bengaluru (Bangalore) and Chennai (Madras), the city has embarked on a massive modernization emulating the E Asian tiger Tier 1 cities -- namely, building Central Business Districts catering to banking, trade, research, tech and other knowlege industries. Adopting the trend toward 'walk to work' concepts, these CBS would have ample residential towers as well. Not only has the city and state governments been sold on 'skyscraperization' on a big way, but also the voting public.Outside Mumbai, its the only city in the Subcontinent to really, comprehensively embrace the ethos of vertical urbanity.

As such, a high-rise and supertall laden CBD with all the infrastructure bells and whistles will literally rise from the paddy fields over the next 5 years in a vast area bordering the 'old' city known as the "skysrcaper zone." These zones would have unlimited FSI, translating into virtually no hight restrictions, provided private developers would fund the infrastructure projects that would sustain them. Unlike other Indian cities, for these projects the red tape is slashed considerably and projects are fast-tracked toward approval.

Already, there are 2 supertall skyscraper-topped megaprojects that have already been approved in the skyscraper zone:
1. Lanco Hills, consisting of 100+ storey residential tower and a host of other highrises -- (what this post is about)

2. Manchirevula Central Business District, which would bost a 100+/140m storey commercial/hotel supertall designed by Norman Foster, and a minimum of thirty other towes each with a minimum height of 30 storeys. Unfortunately, although this tower has already been approved and groundwork begun, no renderings of the tower has been released to the public.

....aaanyways, here is Lanco Hills, Hyderabad:

---------==--=--==---------

Here are two articles that give a good overview of the Lanco Hills SEZ. Mind you, this first article is a year old, so some details have changed -- for the bigger:

A mega techno-residential township

Quote:
Tuesday, June 13, 2006

The Lanco Group has sewn up plans for a mega techno-residential township of 18 million sq ft that would come up in a 100-acre site near here with an investment outlay of about Rs 3,600 crore.

The company is planning a 90-storey building, which could potentially be the tallest such structure in the country. Since this comes in a special zone, clearances would be formality, the company said....... Apart from developing 16 residential towers each of about 30 levels, this project will host a mega mall complex and two hotels - a five-star and a four-star one.

The Lanco group Chairman, Mr L. Madhusudhan Rao, told that the magnitude of the project was such that this will effectively create a larger capacity than the existing Hitec City area near here, where a majority of the IT companies have set up shop. The project, to be taken up through a strategic partner, would be completed within three years.

"We plan to unveil the project in August, and a leading Mumbai-based designer has been roped in for its design. The company expects to tap into other metros following up on their capability to handle infrastructure projects," Mr Rao said. Giving an overview of the mega office-cum-township project named Lanco Hills, Mr Rao said that this would be a mixed development project that will have a built-up space of about 18 million sq ft, featuring top-notch office space, residential facilities and large recreation zones.

With regards to the office space, the company is planning 12 towers each of up to 20 levels that would be custom designed for IT and IT-enabled services (ITES) companies and this would form part of the Knowledge Corridor that the State Government is in the process of developing, he said. Apart from developing 16 residential towers each of about 30 levels, this project will host a mega mall complex and two hotels - a five-star and a four-star one. The mall will have a built up space of about two million sq ft, with multi-level parking space.

In all, the township will have 7.5-million sq ft. of office space and 8 million sq ft of housing facility in addition to the mall and hotel complexes.

Lanco Hills Park notified as SEZ
Quote:
Tuesday, Apr 17, 2007

Special Correspondent

The company is poised to be one of the largest `mixed-use' developers in the world, worth over US $ 1 billion.

HYDERABAD: The city-based Lanco Hills Technology Park Private Limited of the Lanco Group has been notified as a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) by the Union Ministry of Commerce with effect from April 10, 2007.

A sector-specific Special Economic Zone for Information Technology (IT) and IT-enabled services (ITES) will be set up over 25-acres in Manikonda village, Rajendranagar Mandal of Ranga Reddy district.

The company is planned to be positioned as one of the largest `mixed-use' developers in the world worth over US $ 1 billion.

It constitutes realty sectors like IT/ITES space, mall, ultra modern living spaces, extraordinary entertainment, luxury hotels and service apartments, to name a few. It will be a truly international standard integrated IT park, he said.

Chairman L. Madhusudhan Rao said "The sanction is recognition of our credentials and unique track record in creating global-scale landmarks." He said it would be a trendsetter in destination-building and etch Hyderabad as a signature to India as an emerging global destination.
In short, this megaproject would be topped with a 90-floor "Signature Tower" (it's yet unclear if this is the actual name or just a description) that has won clearance and is approved to be built at that height.

---------==--=--==---------

A couple days ago, the company finally released some initial renderings of the project on their website. While obviously it is still in the design change, I sure as hell like where this is going. The pics were smaller, but I've blown them up for clarity (if not beauty)

Captions are mine, and quotes are from the website:


^ 90 storey Signature residential tower. The design of the tower has changed consderably from initial renderings released a year ago. As it will be built in the second phase of this project, it's entirely possible that it may well change in height or design again.
Quote:
LANCO Hills, a 100 acres of sustained knowledge ecosystem in Hyderabad that will rank among the best townships in the world. Designed to create a city of the future, LANCO Hills integrates all the functions and facilities required for modern day living.

LANCO Hills is a unique project being developed by LANCO Group. It is one of the largest mixed developments in India at over 30 million sq ft. With an investment of Rs 5,500 crore, LANCO Hills integrates international standard work spheres, ultra modern living spaces, extraordinary entertainment and commercial and retail districts with every conceivable amenity for a great life.

LANCO Hills will become a landmark in India, with its high rise residential towers, office towers, service apartments, hotels, and a mall, one of the largest entertainment zones. So get ready to witness a fresh idea for an all-new world.

^ What seems to be 2 actual renderings of the project. On the left 2/3s, how how the residential/hotel/mall cluster around the 90-storey tower will look. On the right 1/3, some of the IT towers
Quote:
Fifteen majestic residential towers rise in elegant straight lines and redefine the skyline. Each tower provides living spaces that are the ultimate word in luxury, comfort and convenience. Ample parking area for residents and visitors, imposing glass facades and aesthetic exteriors add to overall beauty and elegance. Meticulously planned interiors achieve a fusion of form and functionality. Imposing foyers and high speed elevators give a feeling of refined comfort. Wide glass windows offer the views of awe-inspiring landscaping around the towers.

^ Club house
Quote:
Club House, one of the best in the world, is a place to indulge. Four Gold Class Home Theatres, a world class spa and gym, multi-cuisine restaurants, well-appointed suites for guests, card rooms, children’s library, play areas, an Olympic size swimming pool, outdoor games area and much more makes every moment in the club a new experience.

^ At 2.5 million sq feet what's claimed to be the largest mall in India, though other malls of roughly the same size and bigger are planned
Quote:
India’s largest shopping mall of 2.5 million sq feet is designed to give you the most fulfilling shopping experience. The spacious parking area can accommodate more than 8,000 cars at a time, the largest for any mall. Other specialities include international brands, signature stores, multi-brand super stores and more than 300 retail outlets to explore the varied nuances of shopping.

The recreation zone, one of the largest in the world, has a 12 lane bowling alley, an ice-skating rink, go-karting, rodeo drives and theme restaurants. An exclusive exhibition and a grand convention centre for premium events make Broadway a thing of the past. Well-lit interiors and eye-catching landscaping bring about a fantasy land ambience.

^ On left the clubhouse, on right the mall and hotel towers


^ The various hotel towers connected to the mall (shown in isolation to the rest of the project)
Quote:
A premier 5 Star Hotel with 400 guest rooms and suites, international banqueting facilities and globally acknowledged service brings you the finest and best hospitality experiences in the world. Similarly a deluxe business class hotel with a spacious convention and exhibition centre and well appointed serviced apartments with modern amenities provides an exhilarating experience. A plethora of speciality restaurants offering exquisite dining experience is another offer on a platter.

^ The mall and hotels again (shown in isolation)


^ Multiplex
Quote:
A 16 screen multiplex is fit for a Hollywood premier. This recreation zone brings to life the magic of movies in the most magnificent setting. Awe-inspiring facades, world class acoustics and perfectly planned amenities give the multiplex an international touch. The multiplex includes four Gold Glass theatres and even a premier theatre to host celebrity shows.

^ On the left, a view of the 90 storey Signature tower, mall and connected hotels (shown in isolation to the rest of the project), and on the right a collage of renderings of various residential towers. According to reports, it seems each of these towers were designed by a different architect.


^ A collage of renderings of the various IT buildings
Quote:
An IT Space along with non-IT office space - all put together with a space to accommodate 75,000 professionals makes this one of the largest single commercial spaces in India. The office space is equipped with rejuvenating facilities, unwinding areas and its own retail spaces, making it a very pleasant space to work.

All this is encapsulated in 12 towers with pleasing architectural facades of different themes, making it a visual treat for the beholder.
The entire development takes 30 per cent of the space and the remaining area is landscaped with bright green foliage of various themes and varieties, brilliantly conceived by one of the world’s best landscape architects.
---------==--=--==---------


Unfortunately, we still do not know who the architects, landscapers, etc are, nor do we have a finalized building designs, views of the landscaping, a master plan or any such final renderings.

However, since this project is approved and site prep has already started in a big way, not only is construction assured, but we will likely get better renderings when they start actively selling apartments.

Three vignettes from SSC India locals:
- grading work for the site (including levelling hillocks) is going on round-the-clock
- an unceasing stream of recruitment ads is appearing in local newspapers for architects, engineers and construction workers with the requirement "experience in skyscraper design is must"
- and finally, international real estate heavyweight Cushman & Wakefield has been granted exclusive rights to market the first phase of construction so we can expect to see some some snazzy PR and high-quality renderings soon!

I'll keep everyone posted as news develops or better quality renderings come out!

Cheers,
Jai

I don't understand why there is any question on it 'really' happening. The project is approved. Big time investors, both Indian and non-Indian, have already invested big money in it. Site prep is going on, and one of the most reputable international real estate companies will soon be selling its property...

The project's definately happening. The only thing that could possibly change between phase 1 and 2 is the architecture of the tower.

I guess whether you choose to believe it is your prerogative. But all objective evidence says otherwise...


edit- As for why they chose Hyderabad, probably because the Hyd govt was the first city in India (outside Mumbai) to really throw in all out with the CBD concept to woo FDI. The other 'competing' S. Indian metros are using more 'traditional' (time-tested) ways to get investment: either going for low-rise, garden-and-park, educational/tech campus-sprawl (Chennai), or medium-rise inner-city redevelopment (Bangalore).

Most IT and knowledge industries like the studious and laid back atmosphere of an open, sprawling, insular campus, so it remains to be seen whether IT companies would migrate to skyscrapers in Hyderabad (Its worth noting that the Lanco Hills supertall is residential in use, whereas the other skyscrapers and supertalls planned in Hyd's skyscraper zone are designed to be commerical use.) However, I have a feeling that Hyderabad is looking beyond simply IT and is aiming to be a finance hub of India that could compete with Mumbai in the long run... or at least attract investment otherwise going there

Actually my intension was to get the things clear and u have given me a great deal of evidences and all. I didnt find them in any other related forums .so i doubted. But now its going to a big thing happeneing for hyde . Gr8 goin.

Must say I am very suprised about this too. There was a lot going on when I was there last, however nothing to suggest it would be able to support this kind of development. I am very skeptical that the infrastructure to support all this would be there. Definately a city in transition right now.... but to that sort of level.... guess we can only wait and see.

Here's an article that explains the demand and offers more details on the IT buildings in the project:

Lanco appoints C&W as project marketing partners
Quote:
2007-05-26 16:20:50 Source : Moneycontrol.com

Lanco Hills Technology Park (Pvt) Ltd. has appointed Cushman & Wakefield India as Exclusive Project Marketing partners for their prestigious SEZ / Non-SEZ project - Lanco Hills, in Hyderabad. Cushman & Wakefield have won the mandate to exclusively market the first phase of around 3.8 million sq. ft. to begin with.

Lanco Hills located in Manikonda, Hyderabad - a specially demarcated ‘Knowledge Corridor’ by Government of Andhra Pradesh has distinctive SEZ and Non- SEZ areas within the same project.
It is also one of the few projects in India, which has already received a gazette notification for its SEZ project from the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India. Lanco acquired the land of 100 acres for the Lanco Hill project from Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation through arduous international competitive bid.

Speaking on the appointment, Mr. L.Madhusudan Rao, Chairman, Lanco Group,, said “We plan to create a world class township with expansive IT space that redefines the dynamics of IT development across India and would not only cater to the burgeoning needs of the IT/ITeS sector but also provide an impetus to Hyderabad which is emerging into a prominent IT destination. We are confident that our partnership with Cushman & Wakefield will allow us to capitalize on opportunities and promote the value proposition of our project to the relevant audience.”

As the exclusive project marketers, Cushman & Wakefield in conjunction with Lanco’s marketing team will help in positioning the product competitively in the marketplace, create pricing strategy through benchmark process, creating customized marketing strategies and tools, ongoing advice on value and demand on a dynamic basis and managing all the steps associated with the lease process.

Mr.S.Pochendar, Director & CEO, Lanco Hills Technology Park Pvt. Ltd., said “We were looking for a company that had International strength and strong national expertise in commercial real estate, an integrated service’s platform as well as outstanding tenant services. Cushman & Wakefield with their value added marketing Services were the ideal partner to meet our project marketing objectives.”

Mr. Ravi Ahuja, National Head, Project Marketing, Cushman & Wakefield India added “We are extremely pleased to be associated with the Lanco Hill project and the tremendous opportunity it offers in the Hyderabad market which continues to witness consistent growth in demand for commercial real estate.”

He further added, “Hyderabad with its proactive government, ability to draw talent from other locations and low cost of living, also continues to attract new companies, while observing expansion of the existing one’s and is expected to witness 60 % growth in demand by 2010. The potential of growth within the cities offers substantial development opportunity. The differentiating aspect will be the quality, services, scalability and flexibility catering to the required specifications of this growing sector.”

Lanco will offer a built up area of over 7.85 million sq. ft. over 12 towers divided equally amongst the SEZ and the non- SEZ areas. While SEZ area covers a built up area of 55, 23,653 sq.ft., the non-SEZ offers a built – up area of about 23,29,723 sq. ft. Each tower is designed to have its distinct Architectural identity with inbuilt amenities and business support services.

These uniquely contemporary workspace towers can accommodate 75,000 and offers 9143 car parks. Each building of Lanco Hills will be self sufficient with business support services like Restaurants, Business Centers, ATM and Computer shops and with recreational options like Dining Areas, Party Halls, Gymnasium, Yoga and Aerobics.

I think, this is an important milestone, as it would reassure the builders' determinataion and seriousness on the project. This would also build some confidence in the minds of buyers and investors. C&W will work hard and show some results, as they expect more such deals in HYd in future. There are many ppl out there, with ready money and waiting for a reliable and sure-to-materialize-soon, LUXURY, walk-to-work-venture.

Lanco has already indicated that they want to complete phase-I within 3 years. Lanco would have the advantage like " the early bird catches the worm". The timing is great, as the HIAL (Hyd Intl Airport Ltd - Rs. 2500 crore* 5000 acre project) http://www.hyderabad.aero/ and ORR Phase-I (Outer Ring Road - Rs 1200 crore* 8 lane road project) http://www.hyderabadringroad.com/ are getting ready for a take-off (APR 2008). (1 crore* = 10 million).

Incidentally, the Lanco project is located only about 3-4 km from the trumpet intercahnge for ORR near Narsingi and about 20 km north of Hyd Intl Airport.

So, we can expect 16 towers (some of 30 storey residentail + some of 20 storey IT and ITES) by DEC 2010.

I am personally very confident about the success and timely completion of this project.

great184,
Sorry, no idea



More good news for Lanco Hills.

It should alleviate any remaining apprehentions anyone may still have about the viability of this project. Seem's now Morgan Stanley is in on the deal, with a 1/4 stake in its development. Also, it seems like the hotels will be run by Grand Hyatt and Holiday Inn.

Lanco bets on real estate projects
Quote:
Raj Kumar Sahu

Monday, June 4, 2007 (New Delhi):

Lanco Infratech might be facing some problems in its Ultra Mega Power Plant projects but as far as its real estate business is concerned the company seems to be gearing up for some big projects.

Lanco Infratech has turned the heat on real estate sector. It is partnering with Morgan Stanley, which considers India's land assets as hot property.

Lanco Infratech based out of Hyderabad is using their local charm and the rush of business travelers. The company has tied up with Grand Hyatt and Holiday Inns to set up two big hotels.


"Morgan Stanley and Mantri Group have 26 per cent stake in Hyderabad project where the company is developing 80 lakh sq ft of residential area and another 80 lakh sq ft as an IT park," said G Venkatesh Babu, MD, Lanco Group.

All this comes at an investment of Rs 3,000 crore and the group is already making bold projections. The company is projected to realising a sale price of residential property at Rs 4,000 per square feet, significantly higher than the building cost for houses at Rs 1,300 per square feet.

So it is south Indian story for Lanco real estate plans, first Hyderabad and then it plans to expand to cities like Vizag and Chennai. The company is now moving fast to acquire and develop properties at least until when the mega Sasan power project finally kicks off.
