Then it might be a massive slum clearing project. America had a lot of these projects in the 1950's. It's called Urban Renewal. Though it is proven that it doesn't work, because it destroys the culture of the original neighborhood.

Finally another update. The raft slab looks to be nearly complete, the tower cranes are being installed, and the rebar is starting to reach skyward.

I'm very skeptical this is even a real project, why would they build it in such a dumpy neighborhood? Who's funding this in India?

Here's a radical thought, fellas: If you're really curious whether this is India Tower, pick up a phone, call the architect, and ask. Or failing that, find out what institution in Mumbai is handling the paperwork and call them. This isn't Kremlinology, just talk to the people who would know what's going on.

Hold on, let me dial that 36 digit phone number to possibly (but probably not) get any potentially (but probably not) useful info on this project....

Unless we start getting some serious forumers in these far off places (Mumbia, Pyongyang, etc.) then we will be left speculating until something substantial is in place and photographed.

I remember you questioned whether the Shanghai Tower was real project when it was already above grade, so I'll advise everyone to take your scepticism with an extremely large grain of salt.

I like the Foliage though: it would be better with geraniums or violets or slipper orchids.

Seriously , don't make any comparisons here because there are none to be made .
Urban renewal in the new world is far different from urban renewal in the rest of it . Until you've seen it for yourself (and I'm not talking about in person necessarily but at least in pictures) you should have no comment about how terrible a thing it is to replace what's on any given parcel of land with something different .

I should point out though that what doesn't work is the "renewal" part of urban renewal in America . Even that's misleading to state because the problem isn't that it doesn't do what it was supposed to do , it's that it doesn't fit with what's nearby . People can make a "neighbourhood" out of any place they live . The American concept of a neighbourhood is somewhat unique to Western thought . In the rest of the world , a neighbourhood is just the area you live in , not the people there. What matters is not the style of housing but the people themselves .

I agree. I doubt that there is enough need and enough money. It's not China...

In the tropics, you don't choose the foliage - it chooses you.

It's being built into a uneven mountain side, what kind of base would you think it needs? And I NEVER questioned whether the Shanghai Tower was a real project, just where the funding was coming from.
