One of the first projects announced in a series of redevelopments of former textile mill lands in South Mumbai, the tower will be Mumbai's first purely commercial skyscraper to break ground -- all other skyscrapers being purely residential or mixed residential/hotel. Not only does it herald the next phase of high-quality but infrastructure-intensive commercial skyscraper development in Mumbai, but it is also an indication of what the redevelopment of the massive mill lands and slums in the next 5 years will mean for Mumbai and her booming skyline.

This project consists of a multi building development. The scope includes a design for the Sky Suites, a 75 story, 810 ft (247 m) tower that will contain apartments, parking and related amenity in a 1,830,800sf (170,000sm) building envelope. Other parcels to be developed for residential use include the Sky Tower, which will stand at a height of 945 ft (288 m) when completed.

Sixsigma, you have posted updates of the Finance Center not Sky Suites u/c.
Thanks 101 - this projects a fucking nightmare to keep track of. Starting from the name changes to the last minute design changes - but for IU's quick eye - this would've resembled the first render. Is there a singular render of the project? All I could find was the render in the first image.

I've changed the original images and specs and its clearly not a super tall now. Mods please move this appropriately.

Potains for Indiabulls

The IB Sky Suites is using two of the Potains cranes, IB Sky Forest is using four Potains and IB Sky is using two Potains.

The cranes spend around 50 percent of their time handling steel reinforcement, 40 percent lifting the concrete formwork and 10 percent placing concrete by bucket. Loads range between two and 2.5 tonnes.
