@kailash9999 You must be right. I read this on first page of this thread and I thought it's about this tower. Apparently it's about an another 450m tower in india (APIIC tower - thread here - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...471574&page=10).

Quote:
. 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.

Yep, APIIC Tower is another proposed supertall for Hyderabad designed by Foster + Partners. Both these towers were proposed/app in the same week.

It's good to know that Phase II has commenced and that APIIC tower isn't scrapped too.

ST probably won't start anytime soon. They are going to start working on the mall and the IT towers.

Those are shorter/smaller towers around the main tower.



Btw isn't it fully residential ? If it is then it's going to be the tallest residential tower by far (if built ofcourse).
