so is it possible to change the title of the thread from Proposed to U/C?

By the way, the tower is very original. I am sure if it came up in New York or someplace, most of the nay-sayers would be sitting on the other side.

Kronik,
The construction you see in the pics are from a midrise IT/Software park also being built on the former mill lands. This midrise isn't seen in the rendering of the skyscrapers, as it is by another architect and not technically part of the two resi/office tower project.

The 75-story tower is not u/c yet

I think that's a very apt observation. For better or worse (I tend to think toward the former), Mumbai has some very unique looking buildings -- like Miami + Dubai mixed in with some spicy Indian masaala

Cheers,
Jai

Looks like it is trying to emulate the design of a tree.

I think it's ugly and way too top-heavy looking - bad use of space too - all those gaps could be floor-space, impracticle and ugly.

man. I think it might look ugly on paper. But I am really positive for this tower. When it comes up it will look good and I also think that it will go with the development of Bombay.

You have a non-biased approach This country vs. country bickering is happening too frequently, I don't want another one starting here. Sorry for bringing it up.

The design is very bold, would be great if it gets built.

I love this building! It's incredible. Like something from Robotech. My only query would be - is it economically viable? With so much space dedicated to the core how can they ever hope to get their money back from sales?

So, it's basically a 50-story building on top of a 25-story tower? What a waste! Just to keep people further from street-level mundane day-to-day real life! And it's not beautiful!
