Looks incredibly futuristic. I can't believe the responses. It's as if no one's ever seen a the core of a building exposed before...EEK!

Such polar responses, eh?

I'm the only one who's kinda non-polar
I appreciate that its a futuristic design but I'm a bit conservative I guess
I'm torn between being in love with it and disgusted by it



Good that its so tall though

The 75fl tower isn't under construction yet (proposed). The 60 fl one on the right is under construction already.

indianpride, while you're correct that the 60 Elphinstone Mills tower is u/c, the construction picture above is actually the midrise I referred to also located at Jupiter Mills; a software/IT park designed by architect Hafeez Contractor. This midrise and the two skyscrapers will all be located next to each other.:









Incidentally, DLF Universal has this mall-office park development next door, also under construction:

Dude, we have no idea. But the rendring does have a several-story podium. According to Indiabulls's plans, the development also includes retail/mall space, as well, though.

This looks very modern-art(ish)... modern sculpture like. It looks great, it is futuristic, and it is tall... tall enough for the poor people in the poor neighborhoods to be able to see it daily... and remind them how money goes into architecture instead of helping resolve poverty.

Oh please.

Skyscrapers built by the free market are there only to make money. Investment into India requires residential and office space in a city where there is very little free of each. It also creates jobs, cash and economic prosperity. This project in particular -- the redevelopment of mills defunct for decades -- will have former millworkers reap rewards in housing, employment and stipends.


This double standard people apply to skyscraper projects in India is incredibly callous and ignorant. Cognitive dissonance at the skyrocketing economic growth.

So please take that pseudo-sanctimonious bullcrap and internet forum crocodile tears and instead invest it in your volunteering or donations to your local homeless shelter. Meanwhile skyscraper and investment projects by investment firms like this one from Indiabulls here will create economic sustainability and jobs for Mumbai's poorest.

I don't agree. Builders can't do nothing about people living in the areas (poor neighborhood) as you said.. It the choice of the people.

The pictures are indeed wonderful but I am just hoping that these buildings do come up in reality!

The desugn of this tower sucks. the toiwer may feature residential units on the 25th through 75th floors, but where are the first 24 floors. It needs to be revised so that these floors can be seen.
