this was the earlier image i had taken on Feb 6th 2009.

We can see there is hardly any gain in height since february.

This was the scene which i got to see on the other side.

We can clearly see that the glass cladding of the structure is already on and i dont see a point why would they start the glass cladding of a proposed 60 storeyed structure when they are only done with constructing 15-20 odd storeys.

now i remember seeing one image in this forum, which showed 3 mid level rises of 6-20 storeys each, which was supposed to come up in the elphinstone mill land. (somebody help me find that image, pls). taking a look at the next picture, i think that is the actual project which is being implemented as we can cee basement is being laid for similar smaller towers.

I dont think there is any point expecting a 60 storey tower coming up in elphinstone mill land.
for all practical purposes, the building has already topped up.

I will be happy to be proved wrong.

Increase in FSI
IPIT’s statement:
The company said, the Urban Development Department, Government of Maharashtra had increased the Floor Space Index (“FSI”) from 2.66 to 4.00. This additional FSI can be availed of by surrendering the parking space that is over the statutory minimum needed. The Trust expects the leasable area to increase to more than 5.0 million square feet for offices and retail
development, compared to an earlier projection of 3.4 million square feet. The projects are being re-designed to accommodate the increased office space and include the excess parking space.”.....
...
IPIT stated, the construction of Tower 1 at One Indiabulls Centre was completed on schedule and is awaiting the Occupation Certificate and other regulatory approvals to allow client fit-outs. The regulatory approvals will be received shortly after the change in the regulations. Tower 2 construction has proceeded as per schedule except for the completion of the top 4 floors which had to be modified to take in the anticipated hike in the FSI. The construction of the mall in One Indiabulls Centre has been delayed due to the re-design incorporating the new office tower and surplus parking space.

The re-design involves the construction of additional floors to the three towers at Elphinstone Mills as well as adding a fourth new tower.
This 4th tower is our 60 fl eye candy.

Here's another snippet:

Responses to SGX Queries-Raises more questions

The response to Current construction status of each building as compared to the total space stated at IPO is ambiguous. Appended below are the construction targets for the projects as stated in IPIT prospectus.
The response to SGX’s query on the current construction states that the towers at Indiabulls One Centre have been completed a scheduled. However, the IPIT prospectus stated December 2008 as the completion period for Elphinstone Mills. Tower 2 of Indiabulls One Centre is complete up to the 17 floors while the remaining 4 floors will be re-designed to accommodate the increase in FSI. The timelines for Elphinstone Mills will undergo further revision to accommodate the increase in FSI. We expect further delay in these projects as in addition to the re-designing process and time required for obtaining approvals for the new designs, there is an additional funding requirement to the tune of Rs 5 bn to meet the construction expenses and meet the current liabilities.

^No, the Indiabulls Finance Center (in post 22) is a separate project in the same compound. The Elphinstone mills tower got redesigned to this -

Indiabulls Sky Suites - 75 floors, 247m

So much on one compound? I thought something said the Elphinstone Mills tower was redesigned into 3 smaller 15 - 20fl towers and would include a 60 storey residential tower. Eh, never mind.
