WORLI | RNA Mirage | 158 m | 40 fl | Completed

X-posted from my thread in the international forum

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


RNA Mirage -- Worli, Mumbai




The 40-story residential RNA Mirage is one of the first modern skyscrapers to come up since the Indian economic boom. Developed by RNA Builders and designed by architect Hafeez Contractor, the retro-futuristic art-deco design is a homage to Mumbai's rich art deco architecture and has influenced many newer towers with its throwback look and falling water podium.



I love the design, but the tower's original design was actually a bit funkier, which to me looked more like a designer purse than a tower, so good thing it changed.

Old rendering:

RNA Mirage is one of the first groundbreaking skyscrapers to come up at Worli, paving the way for increasingly taller buildings that have culminated in the numerous supertalls proposed in the area today. It is located next to Raheja Legend, also u/c:


^ The next door Raheja Legend

The location and design of both towers will ensure commanding views and a greater funkiness to the growing Worli skyline.

-Jai

I actually like the way it looks. Besides, it is symbolic of Bombay & Maharashtra's foray into television and radio.

I agree as i been thinking that for sometime now.

Something better can be designed & built now as it juts looks dated and an eye sore.

Something like CN Tower, Sydney's TV Tower or even Oriental Pearl.
