Randeep Ramesh in New Delhi
Wednesday March 30, 2005
The Guardian

Plans to build a record-breaking skyscraper in a Delhi suburb were given the go-ahead yesterday.
Local officials said the building in Noida would be 710 metres (2,330ft) tall - 202 metres higher than Taiwan's Taipei 101, the current tallest building on the planet.

The skyscraper, said to have been designed to resemble the peaks of the Himalayas, is scheduled to be open for business by 2013.

It will contain a 50-floor five-star hotel, a 40-storey glass atrium and 370,000 sq metres (4m sq ft) of shopping centres.

"New York in the 30s, Malaysia in the 90s and China today all have used tall buildings to showcase their countries to the world," said Hafeez Contractor, the architect behind the building.
"We want this building to show to the world what India can do."

Mr Contractor has made a name for himself as something of a skyscraper evangeliser and is building a 120-storey tower block in Dubai.

The architect says his new structure will exceed the tallest planned building, the Burj tower in Dubai, although latest reports are that the Middle Eastern state will simply continue adding floors to ensure its supremacy.

The craze for height has hit hardest in industrialising Asian countries such as Taiwan, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China, where seven of the world's 10 tallest buildings are located.

India has severe restrictions on building heights to limit the spread of tall buildings. "We shall need to change the local bylaws to get this project through the planning procedures, but that has already been agreed," said Deo Datta, the chairman of Noida development authority.

Mr Datta added that the 140-hectare (350-acre) site had been acquired for the skyscraper, although yesterday it was being used by a herd of cows for lunch.

There are still hurdles before the project, which aims to attract tourists, shoppers and offices to Noida, can go ahead.

Most important is the cost, with the total bill topping 400bn rupees (£5bn).

But with land prices rising vertiginously in overcrowded Delhi, officials say foreign investors are lining up to take part.

Noida, which 10 years ago was little more than pastureland outside the capital, has grown thanks to the booming call centre industry, and officials say it wants to transform itself into a tourist hub.

An eight-lane highway links Noida to Delhi and there are plans to extend the new metro system to the suburbs.

Another project will see the the creation of the Noida Eye, modelled on the London Eye.

hace tiempo se hablaba de otra torre que se iba a construir en India (no me acuerdo del nombre de la ciudad pero no era conocido)

la altura era de 650 m y se iba a construir al lado de un buda de 100 m

por cierto Zorg!!! Shanghai ha dado a conocer que empieza a planificar la ultima de las 3 grandes torres de pudong alturas posibles (370- 450m)

A mi me parece vomitivamente HORROROSA.... pero para gustos.

Ah, y para que luego no digan que se critica por crititcar, doy una opinion razonada....:

a) Recurre a motivos estéticos trasnochados (que se supone que es, un castillo de hadas, la Sagrada Familia del Siglo XXI, como se ha comentado aqui??)

b) Es desastrosamente ineficaz (tanto que tiene q poner unas pasarelas -que traicionan la esencia del modelo- entre pinchito y pinchito para no descuidar las comunicaciones horizontales entre ellos). Por no hablar del desaprovechamiento tan bestial que suponen los cucuruchos de remate...vacíos por supuesto. (qué demonios puede meterse ahi...y como? aparte de alguna antena de Tv...)

c) Es confusa en la idea de partida (yo soy incapaz de averiguar cuál es, aparte de la intencion evidente de hacer 9 cucuruchos a cual más alto) y la formalización es un poco....diría infantil.

Dejo aparte la necesidad que pueda tener un país subdesarrollado en construir un carísimo edificio como este....


PD: Lo de la centella culminando la cima me mata....

vaya, quien es el arquitecto, Norman Foster?? Son como varias torres Millenium juntas...almenos el diseño de cada una de ellas es muy similar a la que foster ideó en el 1989 para la Obayashi Corporation en Tokyo.

Si le dan un color acertado, como por ejemplo similar al Kingdom Center de Ryad, será precioso...

La irregularidad puede que sea sello de la cultura hindú. Los templos hinduístas son muy irregulares.
