The design of the facade of the base hasn't yet been decided it seems.

This is what they have on their website:



and this is what they have in their ad in today's TOI:

What is the height in meters for these towers? From the renders they look like they are about 250-270. Can anyone confirm?

Approz 300m

Quote:
Mumbai: Even as city developers like SD Corporation and IndiaBulls vie with each other to construct the tallest building, work is quietly underway on India's tallest residential building at Jacob Circle in Mahalaxmi.

Every day for the past few weeks, hundreds of construction workers have been descending scaffolding staircases to excavate the foundation and build the steel columns that would form the base of Orchid Heights, a pair of 80-storey residential buildings (approximately 300 metres high) being constructed by DB Realty.

Spread across 6 acres, the buildings, to be developed in the premises of the defunct Pidilite Industries, will have 3.5 acres reserved for a garden and amenities such as gymnasium, swimming pool, and spa for the 150-plus 4-BHK and 6-BHK flats of 3,250 sq ft and above.

With permissions in place to construct up to 60 storeys, the developer today launched sales with a special offer of Rs20,000 per sq ft, with two free car parking slots and no floor rise (increase in rate per sq feet for higher floors) till the 36th floor. The first 18 levels are reserved for car park and other amenities.

The building will have six guest elevators, two 'servant' elevators, and four personalised elevators that will open directly in the apartments.

"We believe in giving products that are not only exclusive but also ensure privacy for our customers. That's why the plan is such that the elevators open directly into the living room," said Nabil Patel, director of DB Realty.

Post the special pre-sale offer, the rates will be hiked to Rs25,000 per sq ft, while car park slots will cost Rs10 lakh. To dissuade investors, the developer has kept a 2-year lock-in period, during which the buyer cannot sell the flat.

If you're building a supertall, make it look good.

Maybe not but it would be nice if it lokoed good, Planet Godrej e.t.c and just ridiclously hideous, whilst these are not as ugly they could have once again made them touch ground instead of putting parking lots in every single building.

you know these would look better if they were cladded with glass as without them it just looks like the sort of resi tower they were building in Hong Kong & London int he 70's & 80's, believe me, those towers age very quickly and will be noticable

The parking lot is actually THE reason why the towers are going to be 300m high. The BMC has started awarding developers extra FSI if they build a parking lot at the site.

So anyways, I check DB Realty's website and they have listed this project as an ongoing project. They have Orchid Heights on their front page. I really liked their original design.

Here are the floor plans from their website.

Why so much of ambiguity about the height still???

Quote:
...but builders set to reap bonanza from it
Nauzer Bharucha,
TNN 21 December 2009

MUMBAI: A state government policy on creating public parking lots on private land is turning into a major bonanza for builders. Around a dozen high-end residential towers-of around 30 to 70 storeys each-are set to come up, mostly in the Worli-Parel area, after the government began offering extra Floor Space Index (FSI) as an incentive to builders who construct such parking lots.

Last year, the government offered builders up to 4 FSI if they constructed multi-storey parking lots on a portion of their land and handed over the facilities to the civic administration free of cost. FSI is generally restricted to 1.33 in the island city and 1 in the suburbs. FSI is the ratio of the permissible built-up area vis-a-vis the plot size. A 4 FSI means that if a plot is 1,000 sq m, the built-up area-either vertical or horizontal-can be up to 4,000 sq m.

This bonanza that increases the FSI three times over saw two dozen developers rush to the BMC with multi-storey parking lot proposals. So far, 13 plans have been approved by the urban development department.

IndiaBulls Realty had two of its proposals approved. Using the parking FSI, the realty firm, it is learnt, is constructing a 65-storey ultra-luxury residential tower called IndiaBulls Sky and another 70-storey building, IndiaBulls Forest, at Jupiter Mills, Lower Parel. At Elphinstone Mills, Lower Parel, IndiaBulls has planned a third tower called Suites, which will be about 65 storeys high.

D B Realty got proposals for three multi-level parking lots approved-one at E Moses Road, another at Crown Mills in Dadar and the third at Jacob Circle. The company has announced a 45-storey residential tower called Orchid Crown at Crown Mills and two 50-storey skyscrapers, Orchid Heights, at Jacob Circle. A third tower at E Moses Road is on the drawing board, according to sources in D B Realty.

The Chandru Raheja-led K Raheja Corp got two proposals cleared-one at Worli (Metal Box land) and another in the Hindustan Mills compound at Jacob Circle. Company sources said two residential towers at each of these locations have been planned. "One tower will be 45 floors and another will go up to 50 floors. There will be a small commercial component too in both these projects,'' said a Raheja official.

Just days before the election code of conduct came into force on August 31, the state government had given the 13 parking-lot proposals the go-ahead. Almost all are located in the Worli-Parel belt of central Mumbai, which is raising eyebrows. These proposals will involve the construction of a mind-boggling 21,000 parking slots in a radius of barely 2 to 3 km in central Mumbai. Even earlier, transport experts had questioned the government's logic in allowing so many parking slots in just one belt, especially since the city's two existing multi-storey parking lots-at Bhulabhai Desai Road and Nariman Point-have pathetic occupancy levels of less than 30% on most days (see `Not many takers...').

Urban planners warned of further congestion. Former MMRDA chief town planner Vidyadhar Phatak said the entire mill district has no proper plan to tackle growth. "With this kind of construction activity, there will be problems. Suddenly, there will be a peak demand on infrastructure. One will see traffic bottlenecks and pressure on water supply,'' he said.

Pankaj Joshi, executive director of Urban Design Research Institute, a public charitable trust, said, "Parking FSI is just one more instance of increasing the development potential of a private plot. Creating parking towers will not help the traffic situation, but encourage more commercial space.''

Some other multi-level lots approved include two proposals by the Lodha Group-at Apollo Mills at Jacob Circle and Sreeniwas Mills at Lower Parel. "We plan to use the parking FSI to construct another 40-storey residential building at Apollo Mills,'' said Lodha Group director Abhisheck Lodha. The group is already setting up a 48-storey residential tower called Bellissimo at Apollo Mills.

The Kalpataru Group has proposed a 30-storey residential tower in lieu of constructing a parking lot on its land near the ITC hotel at Parel. The Dosti Group has planned a similar skyscraper at Sewri, while DLF is learnt to have initiated plans for a residential tower at its Mumbai Mills property in Parel with the help of parking FSI.

According to the government policy, the minimum area of the parking plot should be 1,000 sq m in the island city and 2,000 sq m in the suburbs. The location of parking spaces can be in the basement, ground floor or upper floors, with access available through ramps or lifts subject to clearances from the chief fire officer.

"The incentive FSI given on this account will be over and above the FSI permissible under any other provisions of the Development Control regulations. This incentive FSI shall be allowed to be used on the same plot in conformity with the rules...,'' said the government notification.

It's just another case of bad reporting. DB realty's website says 80 storeys -

At Orchid Heights you are invited to indulge the rare gift of size and space in an ever – so clustered Mumbai. A dizzying 80 storeys expansive 4 bedroom apartment and 4 acres of verdant land spaces amongst many other greats, present an offering that’s truly big – hearted
