As per calculations by Forumers in the Mumbai Subforum , the cores have already breached the 300 m mark !!

Someone actually posted a picture of the atrium, but it was removed. It was very interesting. Can't wait to see a picture of it completed.

It's great that Mumbai's breached the Supertall mark for good at long last. Unfortunately, there are taller buildings in Thailand and Malaysia, so we can only claim tallest in the subcontinent for now. Hopefully, that can be rectified soon, especially if India Tower gets going again.

South Asia means the countries of Afghanistan,Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam becomes South-east Asian countries.

As Deekshith already said that Malaysia and Thailand are SE Asia , BTW this will be talles than any building built or under construction in Thailand. THough petronas towers in Malaysia are 452 meters !!

Yeah in numbers or supertall India may soon be in top 3 in Asia and of course if India Tower gets built then its balle balle

Not just Mumbai, but the entire face of India. People will think less and less about slums when they hear or think about India. Of course India needs more towers for that to happen.

Deekshith, my mistake. There is little real competition in South Asia in terms of Supertalls, I would love to see India putting up towers that compete on the world stage. Guess we will have to wait a little while for it but the day's not that far off!

Milad Tower in Tehran is 435m.

Lotus Tower in Colombo is supposed to be 350m (but u/c at the moment).
