it always good to see a new high rise, esp in South Asia. Wish the design would have been more modern. Are those balconies high up there? If it was that would be awfully dangerous at those heights....

If only this building would have had glass cladding, it would have been more "royale".

As long as it is a supertall, I don't really care what the cladding will look like, as it will provide good height for Mumbai.

So height is more important to you than design?

To me, Design is more important than height...I am a design freak....I love India Tower mainly because of its design and height is second.

No, fool. Just in this case, not generally! But since you seem to be so concerned with design, why don't we just petition to have this demolished and built a nice looking house on its place. Would that make you happier? Granted, I'm all for a good design, but if you honesly would rather see a "good looking" 5 floor building then this, then you are the weirdo, not me.

So, the only choices are an ugly supertall, a nice looking house, or a good looking 5 story building? I'm sure it was an agonizing decision for the developer.... the worst part is you having the gall to call somebody else a weirdo, and then going ahead with one of the most absurd comparisons I have ever seen on this site.

Well first of all, I just have to thank you for jumping in on my conversation with another person. Secondly, I was never the one who said this was an ugly supertall, and the original person I was talking to made a rash decision about my personal building choices(remember, he was the one who had the gall to call me a weirdo in the first place just because I thought the building as is, regardless of the cladding holds merit because of its height). He ( and apparently you too, based on your comment), happen to think that the building is ugly, so I was simply comparing it against other worse possibilties. I not saying it couldn't be better, but I don't feel it neccessarily would be by being chopped in half and clad in glass. I would rather see it at full height as is.
So, I hope you understand, I wasn't trying to hurl insults at anyone, but rather, I was just a tad incredulous about someone attacking me over such a non- issue. So calm down pal.
