WORLI | Raheja Legend | 167 m | 40 fl | Completed

X-posted from my thread in the international forum

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


Raheja Legend -- Worli, Mumbai




The 40-story residential Raheja Legend is one of the first modern skyscrapers to come up since the Indian economic boom. Not to be confused with the similarly sized and named "The Legend" at Walkeshwar, Raheja Legend is a developed by K Raheja Universal and designed by P&T Group of Singapore, and is one of Raheja Builders's first major skyscraper projects in the city.


Like most of Raheja Universal's buildings the design has been changed repeatedly through the last couple years to a far more glassy and classy design, reflecting Indian economic growth and the increasing expectations of the Indian consumer.

It's first design was a very ho-hum concrete tower, painted with what would have been an atrocious shade of blue:


In Feb, 2007, a new design was suddenly being promoted all over Mumbai. Raheja Universal seemed not to even acknowledge the older design, as seen in this photo by nervi1 @ flickr:

^ The first time the new rendering of Raheja Legend is revealed above the Worli placename, on a hoarding in South Mumbai

This new design was a far better, but still not eye-catching, semi-glass cladded design. The height was also scaled upwards some. The newer design reflected the trend towards art deco-throwback architecture in Mumbai, popularized by its neighbor RNA Mirage.

^ The second design at night

The latest (and final) design came late last year. According to the architects, this new iteration of Raheja Legend is "inspired by the billowing wind-filled sails of boats along the Bombay coastline." The building is one of the forebearers of what I unscientifically term the 'swooshy' trend in many new buildings in Mumbai, with its glass cladding and crown. The design has won Raheja the Best Developer - Residential Award (Future) design at Cityscape India 2007 last december:

^ The finalized design

It is worth noting that the design was finalized after construction had actually started. Hence the podium of the tower is similar in structure to the second design.


Raheja Legend 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 RNA Mirage, also u/c:


^ The next door RNA Mirage

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

I think its high time someone proposes a new tv tower for mumbai like the innovative one at gangzhou. That will really mark the coming of the skyscraper age in india.

There's a video about high profile people moving to Bandra from south Bombay on CNN-IBN's video list. In that they show Raheja Legend u/c while showing Worli :

Lol.. the way the reporter is screaming (and pausing after each phrase literally- Indian Ish-style ) about the news makes me wonder if she's even reporting or scaring!!!
