I wish the Marina buildings had been built around the big cluster of buildings lining Sheikh Zayed Road. Now that would've really added to the density of Dubai. Instead, the city is just too spread out for my tastes.

obviously they dont know about pentominium?

The Mumbai tower will never be the worlds tallest as the 516m pentomnium will be numero uno come 2013.

Q1 dwarfed by $500m Mumbai mega-tower




Peter Truman | June 12th, 2010

THE Gold Coast's iconic Q1 skyscraper looks set to be dwarfed by a new contender for tallest residential building in the world.

Lodha Developers has announced plans for a 117-storey tower in Mumbai, India which will peak at a whopping 450m high.

If it is built, the tower will look down on our own Surfers Paradise high rise, which has 80 storeys and stands at 323m high.

And Q1 could tumble out of the top three soon, with two skyscrapers taller than it also being planned in the coming years in Dubai.

The Indian building, entitled World One, will have a total of 300 apartments spanning three and four-bedroom flats, private villas with individual pools as well as duplexes measuring 900sq m.
Have your say on the feedback form below


The luxury will come at a price though, with apartments expected to cost from $2 million to $13 million.

The tower will form part of a $500 million Lodha Place development in the city's Shrinivas Mill plot in Lower Parel, joining two residential towers, a shopping centre and commercial building.

Lodha Group managing director Abhisheck Lodha said the project would cater to Mumbai's 'global aspirations'.

Drawing a parallel with New York City's Empire State Building as a symbol of America's rise in the 1930s, the developer said World One would be a landmark for Mumbai.

"Every global city is made memorable by its architectural landmarks," said Mr Lodha.

"Be it the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Opera House in Sydney or the Empire State Building in New York, these vibrant forms reflect the passion and culture of the city they are located in.

"We are confident that World One will come to represent India's quest for excellence in the economic and cultural arenas."

The project is being designed by New York-based architects Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, which has worked on projects such as the Grand Louvre Expansion and Modernisation (Paris), the Bank of China Tower (Hong Kong) and the 241m-high John Hancock Tower (Boston).

The World One luxury tower will have a three-level 1858sq m clubhouse and spa, an 7432sq m sports club and more than 2ha of landscaping.

It will also house an open-air observatory at a height of 304m above the city, providing an unhindered view of the Arabian Sea and the cityscape.

The developers claim the view from this height will extend as far as 60km.

One more slab floor this week for Princess Tower, Marina 101 looks +1 floor taller again (difficult to prove it exactly here, but I think so)
and indeed some sloping walls are visible at 23 Marina.

I don't think that a bunch of unbelievable high towers on square plots count as a city. It takes a lot more than that, including stuff you just can't build. The density is incredible, the city is non existend...

@ Dubai Steve

thanks for this superb pano!
I think a lot of people would agree with that critique of Dubai's skyline. A lot of the syscrapers look like 'cookie-cutter', generic looking. This is especially true for the Dubai Marina.

The architecture here is lackluster. No one is arguing against that. But this is now the tallest skyscraper cluster on earth. That is impressive.
