This if anything is good news. It might attract the likes of Foster, Stirkhouse and Rogers, SOM, KPF or Renzo Piano to submit designs, if it is to be a world class tower and design it would make sense to bring in world class architects.

the architects dont get in at this stage. the construction company is chosen and then that company hires an architect to design the building after it wins the bid

Yeah. He will also start his own circus show by climbing on the trees up and down to entertain people.

But anyways, lets hope the next time they don't delay the bidding process.

Its not that great a design but the height is solid and it will be a welcome addition to the skyline

Welcome back Nitro,

Good to see you. I dn't think thats Iconic tower but nevertheless a great find. It would be a fantastic addition to Wadala skyline.

Asia's tallest tower in Mumbai to mark 50 yrs of Maharashtra
Quote:
MUMBAI
: Maharashtra government is marking 50 years of the state by planning 50 ambitious projects, including Asia's tallest building in the city.


"We have proposed building an iconic tower, which would be Asia's tallest and have invited design and construction bids for it," a senior official from the Urban Development Department said.

The 531-metre high tower has been proposed to be built at Wadala in Central Mumbai over 14 hectares of land, the official said, adding that the proposal has been submitted to the Government.

The tower would have commercial, recreational, academic and entertainment facilities, he said, adding, "the place has been chosen in such a way that it would be a conversion point for proposed Monorail and Metro rail."

To mark the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the coastal state, formed in 1960, the Congress-NCP Government is planning a slew of projects.

Chief Secretary Johny Joseph has convened a meeting of all departments tomorrow in this regard, the official said.

"All secretaries would come up with total 50 innovative schemes to mark the Golden Jubilee year of the state," the official said.

Joseph would also discuss celebration cost and list of dignitaries to be invited for the concluding celebrations of the Jubilee year, which began on May 1.

The schemes and the plan of the celebration would be presented at the cabinet meeting this week for approval, as the code of conduct for Assembly polls may come into force soon, he said.
