Considering the Indian stereotype is that half of India's population has an IT degree and works in tech support, I find it bizarre that there doesn't appear to be anyone capable of producing a decent render for this project...

Largest atrium in the world? Quite an accomplishment in a shaft...

Check this one out:

http://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel...riott-marquis/

AND you can only see 1/2 in these photos

Currently, the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas is listed as having the largest atrium at 29 million cubic feet (820,000 m³). I have been to both the Atlanta Marriott and the Luxor and the Marriott feels WORLDS bigger.

Mumbaikars, I implore you to ignore those who think this design is ugly. The fact is, it is a more traditional modernist tower with a retro Indian twist of white concrete. In ten/twenty years, when Indian cities are full of glass and steel, like their Chinese counterparts, it's the Palais Royales and Imperial Towers which will maintain the flavour (if they're not hidden amongst a thicket of 700m superscrapers...)

I don't get it. How can they look down the atrium in the top 2/3rd of the tower if they aren't even done constructing the bottom 1/3rd yet?

its ugly dude. Most Mumbaikars will tell you that. Atleast i feel that way.

At night with the lights etc hmm might even look stunning who knows.

It would look super clad in glass. But this is residential.

Bhargav the biggest worry i have with this type of supertall is the maintainace 10 years down the line.Even some of the concrete buildings in the poshest parts of the city look horrible cause they have not been painted for years.Hope these guys will atleast shell out money to paint it every 2-3 years.

Mumbai has very corrosive weather. you need to spend a lot of money to keep the appearances up.

Is that why the buildings look dirty in a few years of applying fresh coat of paint?

yes.

the mumbai weather is horrible for the upkeep of the type of skyscrapers like this. I read that its a mixture of the rain humidity and proximity to the sea.

even our building which is concrete and 10 floors faded away and has to be repainted every 2-3 years. Within 2 years time things start to fade quit rapidly. It cost something like Rs20,000 per family with about 40 families living in the building.

Now i know that 100 flats in a project like this with swimming pool etc mean you must be rich. Infact i am guessing a net worth of atleast $6-$7 million at a minimum.

But so many times you would think that posh areas would always paint their buildings every year. They however in my experience dont do so. Also keep in mind that this paint is going to be white. Which fades even more.
