^ Former slum redevelopment. It's Mumbai effectively leapfrogging several decades of development and redevelopment to keep pace with the Indian economic boom.

The poor get new housing that can be turned for great profit to them, and city infrastructure and development can grow organically and vertically. It's a win-win for all parties involved.
