It depends on locality and developer name.

It ranges between Rs 1200 to Rs 4000 per sq ft. Assuming $1=Rs40 (for convenience) that is $30 to $100 per sq ft. So a 1000 sq ft place will cost between $30,000 to $100,000.

However Diamond Top is asking something in the range of Rs 40 - Rs 70 million. So that's like 1 million to 1.75 million dollars.

Plus taxes/stamp duty etc.

Except for the nice buildings in post 42, the rest are under construction.

The projects in post 42 are proposals. Some of those projects like the convention centre, marriott hotel will definitely get built but getting environmental clearance from Delhi's infamous bureacracy may take some time. Why exactly Delhi should be giving environmental clearances to state projects is not known. It is a relatively new thing which came into force under pressure from "environmental" groups. Not many people are sure what kind of new beast this will be. More layers of bureacracy means slower growth and more hassles and more corruption.

While poverty stricken migration is continuing in from neighbouring states and countries, this mostly adds to the slum and pavement population in the core city.

A lot of the middle class and upper middle class are moving out to the outlying areas into four - five storey apartment blocks.

Highrise blocks mostly cater to the higher income groups and non resident Indians. There was a pent up demand for this section but there was no land made available till now. The new additions to outlying areas and permission to build highrises have changed that scenario.

The state was supposed to have reached replacement fertility levels in 2006 but not sure if that was achieved and how migration will have a bearing on that.

Strangely the core city's population didn't increase much over the past twenty years - this could be because of poor economic conditions for over two decades and outward migration of the middle class compensated by the inward migration of the poor migrants from Bihar, UP, Jharkhand and other places. The demography has changed too. Original residents (Bengalis) are a minority now.

Eastern India is one of the poorest regions in the world (although West Bengal itself is slightly better off) and Calcutta being the only metro has been one of its major problems.

The recent uptick in economy is bound to attract more rural folks in search of a better life and that could mean what has happened in Mumbai - slumification and skyscraperization.

The local government has failed to cope with growth - although its hands are tied when it comes to people wiling to just set up camp on any pavement or open ground they wish. Much of the surrounding areas of the city are fertile land and local farmers are unwilling to give up their land to urbanization. So it is not a pretty situation. This is a problem for most Indian cities though. How India tackles such issues is a big question mark.

Update on this building

New green tower to grace Sec V
from TOI


Salt Lake’s Sector V will get its second green IT complex when 20-storeyed Infinity Benchmark — promising to be a model for future IT buildings —- comes up by September, 2007. The Rs 100 crore building will be the second green IT complex after Technopolis.

Chairman of Infinity Infotech Parks Limited, Ravindra Chamaria, also a member of the executive committee of Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA), said they have applied for a green building status for the upcoming complex. “Though the initial capital investment is high, the USP of this concept is its long-term environmental benefit,” he said.

Chamaria said Infinity Benchmark is being built on a 5.5 lakh sq/ft area, almost double the existing two Infinity buildings in Sector-V. Work began from the middle of 2006. It is set to be a glittering centrally air-conditioned complex with a three-storeyed parking lot for 400 vehicles, apart from having parking space in its basement. For IT professionals, it will be a one-stop-shop catering to various needs with stores selling electronic gadgets, computer hardware as well as baby food. “The aim is to provide convenience to all those who work in Sector V.

The car park on three floors of the building will be open to people with offices in Sector V. However, only employees working in the complex will be able to use the basement parking slot. Strong security measures will be in place,” said an official. The car park is expected to set free the road space.

The upcoming complex will also have facilities like health club, restaurants and fast-food outlets for its employees to help them unwind after a hard day’s work. “We are talking with several firms who have shown interest to set up their offices in this complex,” said an official.

Several other office buildings are on the anvil too elsewhere. These include Ascendas, Keppel Land, The Hub, Unitech, Ambuja RMZ and Godrej Waterside.
