I like it... it's really unconventional. I don't know about the elevated deck though. It makes the building look ugly from street level...

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say but it sounds rather negative and then you have the dancing banana at the end. While constructive criticism is a good thing, this is not very constructive as it does not articulate any suggested changes.

How does the existence of greenery every fifth floor lead to your conclusion that the building weight might not have been considered? Are you wondering about how far some of the balconies are cantilevered, or are you actually questioning the weight of the entire building? If the later, how can you know it wasn't considered properly when the foundations are not part of the drawings provided?

What specific safety considerations are you talking about that the Philippines are so much more advanced in?

Hi

I'm guessing the two storey podium is for parking. The only way for a residential building this tall in this part of Mumbai to get the requisite FSI would be to ensure enough, and very street-accessable parking. I suspect that the disconnect from the street is intentional, as this in all likelyhood is going to be a pretty exclusive tower. Most luxury towers coming up in Mumbai have a pretty big mall and retail area in their bottom floors, but the superlux towers like this, Imperial Towers and Lodha Bellissimo all have this parking garage 'wall' insulating their building from the street.

MUMBAI | The Imperial Towers | 249m | 60 fl


MUMBAI | Lodha Bellissimo | 252m | 50 fl


On an interesting note, the design of Lodha Bellissimo is also inspired by ocean waves.

The building itself is rather cool. Note that the renderings you've shared are only from the narrow ends. It is actually quite wide from the other two sides - any pictures of what that looks like?

Why are there cars driving on the sidewalk? India has too many pedestrian deaths as it is!
Yeah, I find the width the most interesting part of this design as well, but unfortunately these are the only renderings the architect has released -- even the builder's website doesn't have this building listed yet as its still awaiting approval (though google searches reveal that they've already put in the paperwork.)

Dude, I would think the architect would have considered something as 'trivial' as the building's 'weight' in the design Given how few details we have about this building, like what materials it uses, etc., I think the argument in your post is rooted in completely baseless and dare I say rather foolish speculation.

Cheers,

Don't like it. Looks like a tacky 1960s beach hotel.

Hmm, I don't know about this one. It's really original, interesting but I wouldn't say it's good-looking.

Wow, Doesn't look half bad. It is good to see some of the strength from the economy being put into infrastructure and tall buildings. What I mean is that I am happy to see the construction industry benefiting with some large projects.

I checked on Google Maps and it looks like the Waves tower is to be built on the site of 26 small lowrise residential blocks. It looks like it has about 500 residential units.
