It is indeed a beautiful tower, but I must say: why? Why there? Look at the render and you'll see an enormous spike with no particular meaning with its surroundings. But again, very nice tower.

Awesome design! It does give stiff competition to the BK, and is probably way ahead of the likes of the other U/C supertalls. Triple core, looks like the same "buttressed core" used at BK. At least, I think that's what Adrian Smith called it. A bit complex, but very stable structural configuration.

Well, from far away it seems that poor people are pushed away by building large buildings right next to their doorstep. And what has clearing up construction sites have to do with high real estate prices. if I look at the pictures from the site there are bushes, trees and so on hanging and standing on the site. That's strange, isn't it?

Unlike other cities Mumbai city is difficult to understand. And leave this type of discussions here only or else it may lead to another city vs city or country vs country comments:)

Well, that is not my intention. I was just wondering, because I have never seen it elsewhere.

i kinda dont like the base, all those triangles fit too each other but the base one is too short, they should have made the base either longer or different at all in my opinion

^^ I agree but the only way to change would be to either make the top ones smaller and the bottom bigger, or make to whole building higher and make the bottom one taller :)

I prefer the second one ;)

with the second one we would be over 800m sweet xD but nevertheless the building is still nice and unique of course :)

This tower really is a jewell! Even though it's slightly shorter than Burj Khalifa, it's way better looking, to me it's THE tower to gaze at!
