One of the furthest along of the major skyscraper proposals by builders K Raheja Universal, Raheja Atlantis is already making its mark on the growing Worli area skyline.

Like most of K Raheja Universal's other couple-year old projects, the building was abruptly changed mid-design as the developers switched architects. The original proposal was not an unpleasant looking tower of 30 stories:

^ The older design

Presumably, as increased FSI was allowed for the plot, the tower was changed to its current classier, glassier design. The tower is designed to reflect the undulating waves of the ocean on its form.

^ The back of the building is shown in this pre-rendering of the finalized design. Note the changes in the crown and the podium.

Raheja Atlantis now stands at 40 floors (37 floors of apartments on top of a 3 story parking garage podium), and its location near the shores of the Indian Ocean will give some pretty neat views as well as making the tower rather visible itself.

It also has an interesting green swoosh down the seaward-facing side of the building, formed by a lush placement of plants on the balconies of the apartments. Though there are two 'swooshes', Atlantis is designed so that all apartments will have some of the greenery on their decks.

As I mentioned before, the tower is well under construction. Here it is in Sept, 2007 in a photo taken by Humayunn NA Peerzada:

currently on 29th floor is u/c. only 11 more fl to go. This will be up & running by Dec '08.

just incredible how quickly Bombay u/c highrises are topping off. Its a far cry from legend & Imperial towers that took ages a while back.
Status as on 29th August 2008.

I shot this prior to a meeting from inside a conference room. Unfortunately the glass was tinted and I was able to capture in this form only.

Starting to Look nice.
I'd say it'll be done in about 3 months.
The building has been topped out.
The mods may change the title of the project.
The tanks and LMRS are being added at the moment
since the building is topped out, does anyone know the final height
We need the latest pictures... :)

thanks. Bombay is looking more & more like HK.
^^I wouldn't go that far.
I think you should go to their thread and check out the height in their scrapers. Not trying to be mean, but just pointing out a fact.
Nice Pics IU.
I like the design of this building because it utilizes a good amount of space.
