So, its basically like the top floors of every other tower ever built ever, then? OK Thanks for clearing that up.

So shouldn't this thread be titled "under construction"?

I agree 100%. This proposal looks absolutely awful.



The tower on the right looks nice though.

This is unusual, but it isn't sloppy looking like Tour Phare. Not to mention-- hairy...*shudders again*

I must say I'm shocked by the reaction to this building - this tower is so bold and sculptural. I can't wait to see it. What's with skyscraper nerds only wanting to see slim and pointy?

Depending on the materials they pick to use, this could turn out to be a desaister. Or it'll stun the world.

Here's an update on the tower.

SSC India member Indiansunite called up both the developers and the architect and independantly confirmed from both of them that the tower is indeed coming up at Jupiter Mills -- not Elphinstone Mills as was speculated earlier. He also got confirmed from Indiabulls that the tower is not under construction right now.

I also called up Smith + Gill architects last week, spoke to one of the architects and despite my gushing, also managed to get confirmed from him that the tower is a very real proposal, but he directed me to the builders for more information. I will try to get a hold of them next work week.

All of the gray part you see in the render is the core, so it's basically just a huge ass core.

thanks for clearing it up
i dunno, it led to some weird feeling of a waste of space then..
but i think the design is somehow off the hook and very interesting indeed...

Wow, I have almost never seen such nearly unanimous negative response to what I think is a very original, and visually intriguing design. What do you guys want? Just a bunch of tasteless boxes that are built a dime-a-dozen? I do admit though, this tower doesn't look like an efficient use of space, but it still looks awesome.

Thinking outside the 'box' scares some people.

I agree, what's with the negativity? This tower is amazing, totally futuristic. Who cares if it wastest space? Sometimes great design isn't about practicality.

The one on the right doesn't seem too bad. The one on the left looks like someone's arm with a bunch of tumors hemmoraging from it.
