It is, but it won't last long. Some taller towers are u/c as well.

Yes, I guess, but only for a while. But for that time, it will enjoy two superlatives - 1) Tallest and 2) Ugliest. Sorry guys for taking the piss out of this building, but I really cant stand the look.

No, it has about 73m to go before it's the tallest structure in India. If you mean tallest building, than yes

@hitesh pargi - I counted 42 floors completed above the parking levels. The central cores have reached maybe 4 levels above the completed floors. I counted manually from a distance, so cud be a couple of floors off.

for the weekend's consumption:

Palais Royale, reaching for new highs in luxury

AN APARTMENT block with the mostest in India is moving towards completion. And the most of the mostest is the price tag – a minimum Rs 50 crore. But the top price goes up to Rs 100 crore.

India hasn’t ever seen such a high — either in the price of a piece of shared residential building or in its height.

Palais Royale, coming up in central Mumbai, will rise through 75 floors to a height of 1,000 ft to become if not the tallest but at least one of the two tallest buildings in India when completed. (The other is Lodha World One, also Mumbai.)

Never mind the economic slowdown; clearly it does not affect some people. And they are looking. They qualify for only one reason – they are rich. Though this is not admitted, billionaires are preferred.

The apartments will be tailor-made to pander to some of their basic needs (like a jacuzzi, for those whose won’t be seen dead under a rain shower).

Some flats have already been pre-sold. One duplex apartment has been bought by the family of media baron Subhash Chandra of Zee TV fame. It set the family back by Rs 75 crore.

Some of Chandra’s top aides confirmed this to Financial Chronicle.

But there are plenty other billionaires willing and ready to rise above their poor millionaire cousins, claims a top official of Shree Ram Urban Infrastructure erecting the tower. This, even before the formal marketing of the flats begins in 2013.

The naming of Palais Royale is in piece with the latest trend of christening anything and everything with a foreign name. As opposed to Mumbai’s most famous boulevard, Marine Drive, just a few kilometers away from Palais Royale, which has India’s longest row of art deco apartment blocks with Indian names and built decades ago.

Palais Royale has its India touch though — vastu (100 per cent vastu, no less, according to the company official). Apparently, that’s what the jet-setting billionaires want. It will also be environment friendly. (Palais Royale covets the platinum rating from LEEDS.)

Shree Ram Urban Infrastructure, listed on the BSE, will spend over Rs 2,000 crore on the tower. It counts among prospective buyers leading businessmen, stockbrokers and film stars. If politicians too are nosing around the company won’t say.

Entirely residential, the tower will have an atrium, 30 metres across and rising to 215 metres, the world’s tallest atrium in a residential building, claims the builder.

Everything is under wraps, including Palais Royale itself, clad in plastic from top to bottom. But work goes on behind the shroud. It pays to be discreet when prices are so stiff and the egos of patrons still stiffer. Formal booking has not started, and this, says Joygopal Sanyal, national director of property consultancy Jones Lang LaSalle, could be because valuations may not be “right” now. Once completed, Palais Royale will get better prices, he says.

Palais Royale is no shack, and its customers are the types not dependent on home loans. So, even if the rest of realty sector is still staggering, Palais Royale will have takers.

The tower is a year and a half behind schedule, the delay, as explained by the company’s official, is due to regulatory issues, technical problems and shortage of both labour and raw materials.


What promises to be an iconic building is also claimed to be niche product. “Execution is very complicated; we are learning as we construct,” he says, claiming it will take in more concrete than the Worli Sea Link. It will negate radiation from TV towers, FM stations and cell towers.

A sprinkler system (again, a 100 per cent system, says the official) for fire fighting and auto-misting the living areas will conform to the code of the National Fire Protection Association of the US. Kone elevators will ferry people up and down at high seven metres per second — the quickest rise and fall anyone in an Indian home can aspire to.

“By invitation only” is the way the flats are being sold. Strangely, rather than the man of the house who will probably shell out the money for a flat, Shree Ram Urban officials are giving the sales pitch to the woman and children of the house — “because their approach is more practical,” says the official.

Palais Royale has competition though. Lodha World One, also claimed to be the country’s tallest residential tower, saw good bookings around Diwali.

"AN APARTMENT block with the mostest in India "

"And the most of the mostest is the price tag"
