Angry Citizens Push for Demolition of Half-Built Tower

"A city-based group is pushing for the demolition of a 75-story, unfinished building in central Mumbai. The group cites "blatant irregularities," accusing the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) of showing undue favors to the developer, according to local media.

The protesting group, Janhit Manch, has filed a public interest litigation (PIL) suit against the continued construction of Palais Royale in Worli, an island district in the city. The 300-meter (984-foot) building would be the tallest building in Mumbai if it reaches completion.

"Just because the builder claims that building is going to be an icon for the city does not mean that it can commit fraud," Senior Advocate Navroze Serwai, the petitioners' lawyer, told the court yesterday. In his opinion, the most blatant violation of rule was the sale of "refuge area."

"The builder told BMC that it had earmarked around 300,000 square feet as refuge area, which can be used by outsiders in cases of emergencies like flood, cyclone," said Mr. Serwai. "However, RTI documents reveal that around two lakh square feet area has been included in flats as outer deck area, and sold."

In addition, the builder has already constructed 52 floors of the building, although the commissioning certificated allowed the completion of only 42 by August. The plans of apartments in the building also violate the city's fire code for tall building, according to the group.

A spokesman for the BMC told the Times of India that permissions were given “as per law,” and the group has taken legal action to halt construction."

Man does it stick out like a sore thumb. Here is hoping that fewer such projects are developed in the future.

I am really waiting for the cladding. I was one of the foremost people to say shit about this building. Now I have some kind of hope, cuz you see even ugly girls look good with makeup, that is exterior finishing.

I don't know. I think it looks imposing. Unconventional for a supertall, yes, but I think it'll look good once finished.

Awesome and truly massive supertall!
Mumbai is a truly organic skyscrapercity that has evolved spontaneously and not through forced Or induced means.
It's a feat of engineering, indeed, to accomplish this in erstwhile congested neighborhoods.
I see this Aspect in older parts of downtown Toronto and NYC as well.

Probably the most massive highrise I've seen... Not tall, but fat.
