GANDHINAGAR | Clippers Tower | 260m | 65 fl | 60 fl x 2 | App

Block Package E -- Gujarat International Finance Tec-City, Gandhinagar




This yet-to-be-formally-named commercial project, currently known by its Block Package designation, is just one of the many towers coming up in India's largest greenfield megaproject, the Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT). At 65 and 60 floors, the towers in Block Package E will be amongst the tallest in the 80+ skyscraper skyline.

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

Its necessary to first give some background on the GIFT project itself:

Located at Gandhinagar, the capital city of the über-industrial Indian state of Gujarat, and nearby the state's commercial capital of Ahmedabad, the Gujarat International Finance Tec-City will be one of the world's largest and most modern financial hubs.

From its already lofty original development goals, GIFT has since grown manifold to literally an entire city's central business district that will be larger than Paris's La Defense, Tokyo's Shinjuku, London's Dockyards and Shanghai's Pudong financial districts. It will house over a million people with millions more commuting there daily.

Well placed between the political and commercial capitals of Gujarat, GIFT is a public-private partnership basically designed to kick Mumbai in the FDI balls and establish itself as a world player. It will is India's first major supertall Central Business District project that is designed to be the focal point of both the world's and India's booming financial services market by providing companies with all those things Mumbai is still developing: comprehensive infrastructure, power, verticalized office space, and a well designed, planned and expandable urban form. Its strong proximity and infrastructure connectivity with Mumbai ensures that mutually beneficial development occurs between the two metros.

The scale of GIFT is singularly massive, unparalleled in the world except a handfull of Dubai megaprojects, none of those which can hold a candle to GIFT's goals of economic sustainability, integration and scalability.

Gujarat International Finance Tec-City will have 312 tall buildings — the tallest being the signature Diamond Tower with 87 floors; another 40 buildings with more than 50 floors and many more with 24 plus floors of height. The entire project is not only fully approved but already completely sold out due to insane demand. Construction will begin later this year.

For more information on GIFT as a whole, please check out the GIFT thread in General Urban Developments forum for a summary of the main developments and the GIFT thread in the SSC India forum for more detailed discussions.

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


Located on block --(or in GIFT development parlance "Package", in reference to each site being a separate instance of public-private development partnerships)-- "Package E", the three towers are designed by Shanghai-based ECADI architects, the master planners of many of Shanghai's newest projects, will be fully commercial in use, which will make them amongst tallest commercial projects in India.



The tallest of the three buildings will stand at 65 floors, and the other two at 60 floors.

Interestingly enough, the tallest element of the project, a spire, is actually located on one of the smaller, flanking buildings.



The three buildings of the block package are connected at a number of levels by criss-crossing sky bridges.




The towers are located within the deep cluster of skyscrapers strung along the riverfront of the GIFT project


^ The towers can be seen on the left side of the skyline

The tower has been completely approved by all governing and oversight bodies and will be constructed in the first phase of the project. Construction is expected to begin later this year, but may be put on hold if more redesigns/upscaling of the project is in the offing.




Cheers,
Jai

Yeah, I really love the wavy facade they have in the renderings. (Unfortunately, can't see it in the prerenderings)
