Hopefully it's true!

Bombay Boy on SSC found this project on FXFOWLE's website.

CLIENT : Park Hyatt
LOCATION : Mumbai, India
GROSS AREA : 882,000 sq ft

FXFOWLE's Park Hyatt tower centers on creating an iconic residential mixed-use building within India's emerging new economy. The 82-storey tower is informed by distinctive indoor/outdoor environments and the desire to optimise the panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The towers rotated form emerges in response to the buildings functional requirements and its mixed-use program - which changes with each twist of the structure. This circulation pattern separates retail, 5-star hotel and serviced apartments and long lease duplex penthouse condominium apartments within a sustainable network of green roofs and hanging gardens; creating a singular, extraordinary building that, when completed, will be the tallest and greenest building in India.

^ It really is. What you see is Hong Kong/Dubai style monotonous density mixed with some very cool and innovative looking projects.

Seeing some of these renderings reinforces to me the fact that American cities just ARE NOT thinking out of the box to the degree that they once were. Even developments considered innovative in American cities now just pale in comparison to some of these zany projects displayed above.

What money can buy

Residence Antilia is a 24-story high-rise residential building located in the heart of the city of Mumbai. The building program is divided into public and private spaces for the family and their guests. The building’s design is in direct response to unique programmatic elements and a desire to maximize the views around the site.

The building's shape consists of a series of continuous undulating surfaces both horizontal and vertical which helps to define each programmatic element while simultaneously unifying the composition. This undulating ribbon, or snake frame, serves as a secondary structure that transform the floor loads to the building core. The vertical surfaces of the frame are articulated with a steel lattice and contain a series of planter beds effectively transforming the facades into living green walls that will filter light and enhance the local micro climate of each level. It will be seen as a visual extension of the lush landscaping that surrounds the building, effectively creating an oasis in the sky.



----------

Remember that this whole thing is Mukesh Ambani's (worth $20+ billion) home.

Mumbai is becoming a very nice, modern city. I was there in November of last year and was surprised by how much construction was going on everywhere, not just downtown but in the northern suburbs near the airport as well.
The one thing Mumbai does need to do is rennovate Chattrapathi Shivaji International Airport, this airport is run-down and does not do the great city of Mumbai justice.
I think with Mumbai's beautiful location on the sea and it's tropical climate, it will become one of the greatest cities to visit as the new projects go up.
I can't wait to go back!!!

The quality of the architecture is improving leaps and bounds.

QUESTION: Roughly speaking, what percentage of these are u/c or in advanced stages of planning ?

I love this building!

World Vipassana Foundation Pagoda
325 feet


I have a new friend who lives in India. We are theoretical physics pen pals and enjoy discussing anything and everything to do with physics as well as engineering and construction. I would like to learn more about India, because I know it isn't a bunch of muddy grasslands with shoe-less kids playing football and old rusty trains with people clinging to it's sides - which is kind of what the typical American image of India is. Thanks for this wonderful thread! It has already helped me paint a more accurate image! I will be back to keep updated on Mumbai (Bombay), India.

This building reminds me of Frank Loyd Wright, with an Asian twist.

Why only residential towers? Given India's exploding economy you would also expect a huge boom in office skyscrapers.

Hi,

Over 1/2 of these are in various states of construction. With the monsoon season now upon Mumbai, construction has virtually halted for the next few months.

Apart from only a handful, all of these towers have been approved

You're very welcome

For you, here's a somewhat dated picture of this building's construction:

There are office tower proposals on the works, including two supertalls that there is very little information on, but business seem to be content with large office blocks/campuses. However, the Dharavi slum redevelopment plans, of which we'll see renderings come out later this year, will feature office skyscrapers.

Really, only when Mumbai's infrastructure improves, we can see large scale skyscraper development. I'm certain that in the next couple years as the Mumbai metro, Bhandra-Worli Sealink, Transharbour Sealink, E-W freeway, etc. are completed that Mumbai will see skyscraper development.


Personally, I'm all for holding out for as long as possible. Simply put, Mumbai's land values are astronomical, and will only increase. Add that to the fact that India's economy is booming, and that, as Dale correctly observed, Mumbai's architecture continues to increase in quality and size... the longer commerical skyscrapers are not built means the taller and of higher-quality they will be when the dam does burst, so to speak.

And when it will burst, its gonna burst in a big way
