MAHALAXMI | Planet Godrej | 181 m | 51 fl | Completed

X-posted from my thread in the international forum

==========================================================

Planet Godrej -- Mahalaxmi, Mumbai





An iconic series of residential towers coming up in Mahalaxmi, Planet Godrej, developed by Godrej Construction, is one of Mumbai's first towers breaking the 50 story mark.

The tower is actually five towers of 51 stories connected together, and are marketed as Celesta, Strata, Electra, Aqua and Terra -- which I presume are being named after what the developer feels modern day subjects of the Roman Empire would presumably call the base elements, if they could.





The project is designed by DP Architects, Singapore, and are is of the first towers to come on former mill land -- in this case Simplex Mills.

Stunning building!

Was the Simplex Mills completely demolished for this project?

Its NOT ugly. Just look at the CURVE !!

I think P godrej is a deceptive design. Its one of those towers thats going to turn out into real beauty once completed.

we gotta wait till all the cladding & glass goes up. Its a curvy massive architecture & as great as residential building can get.

believe me. Planet Gordrej is a far cry from Lodha bellisimo. Now thats ugly.

Godrej renderings are too deceptive. we'll have to wait 'n see.

Well,I hope you are right.
I dont think there is much cladding though except for some glass pannels(which hopefully will be there when its finished)

I agree, we have to wait until the building is finished to judge. The curve is something that you dont see in a photo but must be awesome in real life.

PG is 45 floors and not 51

Guys recheck the floorcount: it's 45 and not 51 storey tall building.

wow, I didn't realize that that was planet godrej when I saw it on flickr.

Anyways Godrej properties has uploaded (or were they there since the start of construction?) some new renderings. Looks like they've dropped the plan to add colors.

this is no good. Why cut corners once u/c leave it as it is.

I guess when they design, it looks within the budget. but once it gets u/c by that time, inflations forces these stupid cutting corners stuff.

Imperial towers did that with ever modifying design. Godrej doing the same thing.

It could be 48 floors of living space + 3 floors of podium/parking.

We should never take renderings seriously as we know they will change the design, floors etc.

They had smaller versions of them before, but the larger ones are much clearer now.

I wouldn't worry about the color. Chalk it up to the crappy renderings.

Its about time this kachrapatti be removed. It makes even a million $ property look like a ghetto.
