All these buildings coming up around the Race Course are hideous.

Let me guess, Hafeez Contractor designed this?

Horrible design- bad looking podium which has nothing to do with the rest of the tower, bad location which will make it look lonely and it's too fat.

is Mr.Hafeez the Rockefeller of Mumbai high rise constuction business? the way you say it implies he has quite a reputation for some not-so-good designs.

Hafeez Contractor is unarguably the most famous architect of India for quite some time. He is a "big" name !!

Erm? There is three 225m towers directly behind this building. There is 5 supertall buildings under construction in less than a 1km radius around it. Not to forget there a nearly 500m tower which is said to be launched nearby.

people seem like they think that there opinion about a design of a building is shared by everyone, i personaly like this design myself,
statement like 'to fat' ect. pinch my nerves, think about the plot ect. the designers had to work with,
this a building people are going to live in, not some crazy landmark,
remember those kinds of things before posting your opinion about a design,
remember that a building is also about functionality and not just looks! just sayin

Some more renderings:

Elevation from the Mahalaxmi racecourse



The view towards the racecourse. The areas to the left and right of the racecourse will include a number of supertalls in the next several years, so the current view you can see toward the second peak in Mumbais developing skyline in Parel may be blocked.



The sky lounge in the valley that bisects the two wings of this tower



This gives an idea of the cladding
