This one any many more. The supertall section could use a clean-up anyway. Seriously, Dubai Pearl is on hold for ages and still in the U/C section

Well, the worldwide demand for towers of that size isn't very big, and they are expensive as [intercourse] to build, so I think we'll have to wait for a few years to see the next one.

I've been saying for a while that with a number of supertall buildings rising in Mumbai, and the city growing in general, the 300m Worli Tower will need to be replaced with something with a bit more muscle in the foreseeable future. But that's just my personal speculation and nothing in that direction has been announced yet.

And you can bet I will be glad if and when hideous lattice tower is replaced.

Mumbai would make an amazing city for a new world's tallest observation/tv tower

I'm new to this forum so I have no idea how much effort it takes to go from proposal to completion. Just because you asked whether people are building new ones...
