Hasn't even been built yet, so how can you tell?

Anyway, bit similar to Foster & Partners' completed City Hall offices AKA The Queen's Walk (see link below):

The Bandra-Kurla complex where this is being built is a CBD in the strictest sense, but it is not a downtown area. It's a large mid- and low-rise commercial area. Think of it as sort of a Silicon Valley-like development for the Banking and Services sectors. It's still heavily under construction

A highrise CBD is actually a bit south of this, and is more an organically planned area with skyscrapers coming up as a result of higher FSI. It is going to comprise the vast bulk of Mumbai's skyscraper and supertall developments. This is not a CBD in the strictest sense, but a downtown highrise area, with something like 2:1 residential:commercial towers

The Mumbai Projects thread is a rundown of some of the skyscrapers in Mumbai, but I haven't had the time to update it in months. (I'll do so today or this weekend.) Otherwise, the India forum here has a Mumbai subsection and a running commentary on all the projects we know about

Interesting concept, but it looks a little funny... quite different though.
