Eventually all the old junk will be replaced with modern buildings.

which only is a good thing, when the people who live and work in that old junk are provided with better jobs and not just pushed out of that area

I think that the surrounding neighborhood would actually look pretty nice with a lick of paint.

In India, is there any concept of urban planning? Removing poor buildings is not enough. Can current infrastructure support super talls? You cannot build these buildings and then build infrastructure around them.

Mumbai is an urban planning nightmare. Its like the perfect storm of everything that could go wrong.

-The infrastructure is horrible so the government restricts skyscraper height
- But infrastructure is so horrible that people can't reasonably commute to economic opportunities within the city from afar
- Poor people can't afford to legally live in the city but need to take advantage of economic opportunities in Mumbai to put food on the table. (bam: slums everywhere).
- Add on top of all this the fact that it is one the densest cities in the world.
- Also the whole city is an island. Actually 7 islands artificially joined together using land reclaimed from the ocean. With a several of old villages incorporated within city limits.

But it also makes it an amazingly unique city.

Compare the rather extreme difference in the quality of surroundings in these two photos of this building.

a little old article ( Feb 2011) but very informative ... excuse me if it is a repeat post :

Quote:
Article Link
Few main points :

1. At 215 m high and 30 m in diameter, Palais Royale will have the world's tallest atrium in a building. The building has a very good aspect ratio (of 1:3); it has a base of 100 m and height of 300 m, contributing to well-balanced and proportionate looks and, more important, much-needed stability in case of wind and earthquakes.

2. Palais Royale will have the world&'s deepest girders, 9 m deep compared to the second deepest in the world at Trump Towers, Chicago, that stand at 8.5 m. Palais Royale's transfer girders are located at a level between 70 m and 80 m from ground level. The lower columns are spaced more sparsely than the columns above the girders as the lower floors are used as car parking and amenity spaces whereas the floors above are designed as residential spaces. The transfer girders will carry the load accumulated by the upper columns of the remaining 220-m-high building. To withstand the combined effect of the residential floors, the transfer girders have been designed with the width as large as 1.5 m and the depth of 9 m, making them truly one of a kind. Palais Royale has set records for the following:

• The deepest reinforced transfer girders in the world at 9 m;
• The longest reinforced transfer girders in the world carrying a load of 55 slabs – 22 m
• The first transfer girder system in the world using M-60 self compacting concrete supporting floating columns carrying 55 slabs.

3. The building is earthquake-resistant and designed for Grade 2 (Seismic Zone 4) for immediate occupation. This implies that work in the building can be immediately resumed after an earthquake.

4. Palace Royale is India's first LEED platinum rated green residential building.

Please see the link for extensive information !!

- Interesting enough, especially that humungous transfer beam. I have seen a fair number of these used in vertical mixed-use scenarios to transition from one column grid to another but looks like this one is record holder!

Anyways, do we have details on who's the lead architect and the contractor? Apologies in advance if I missed the info somewhere on this thread.
