Yes, I don't think there is much interest about India or Indian cities from the cityscape point of view in SSP.

But there are some like you who are interested.

Wonder what happened to this building? It was the Stanchart when it caught fire quite a while back.

Shrachi and Emami Towers (u/c) - offices of two Kolkata based corporates. These are in south east Kolkata - away from the CBD and this may be a new trend as offices shift to the suburbs.

I don't think they are attractive. The project is a biggie by Calcutta standards. After the seventies, this was the first time a building crossed the 24 storey mark in Kolkata. The tallest one in this complex is 28 storeys (was completed in 2005) and is currently the city's tallest. The project has kind of enthused builders to announce several tall apartment building projects.
Coming up by this year end will be two of the four 35 storey towers of South City.

^ wow, big buildings in the linked project.
