MUMBAI | Orchid Heights | 328m | 1076ft | 80 fl x 2 | On Hold

Orchid Heights -- Jacob Circle, Mumbai


edit-- the towers have been redesigned




----==-=-==----

DB Reality has become one of Mumbai's most prolific developers and are behind several of the Mumbai's tallest building proposals. Orchid Heights is one of these.



Comprising two towers of 55 stories (52 floors + 3 story podium), Orchid Heights is a mixed-used Hotel/Residential/Retail development spread over three acres at Jacob Circle, nearby Worli.



Orchid Heights will contain a 250 room super luxury hotel, 50 long stay suites, 55 long lease apartments and 100,000 sq. ft. shopping arcade for luxury high-end boutiques in the podium. The project also contains other highrises whose designs are not yet released.



Of note in the design is glass-topped crown, which presumably will have an observation floor. Located smack dab in the middle of Mumbai's under construction skyline, the towers should offer some awesome views.

-Jai

An update. It's been redesigned, and now it's roughly 300m with 80 floors -

I'm not sure what this building is but it's inside the compound. It's definitely not the sales office since that's located at the nearby turf estate. I'll confirm with him.
Edit: this could be Man Infraconstruction's temporary site office:

Ask the user Master of Disguise, in the India Tower thread he mentioned he might be going to Mumbai with a camera next week. Maybe if he gets around town a bit he can update more than one of the supertall projects currently U/C in Mumbai.

The first design was tasteless. I can't stand the basic season side condo. The second fits more with the times we live in. Needless to say I'm not a fan of really tall apartments.
