That's quite a silly comment. If you did a little bit of reading online, you would realize that the building is being built adjacent to Marine Drive, which is Bombay's equivalent of Sunset Blvd in LA or 5th avenue in New York. You would also learn that there are something like 50+ buildings over 40 stories currently under construction, and so the skyline will be dramatically different in just 5-10 years.
For those of you who think this is being built in the 'slums', I'm quite shocked. Property prices along Marine Drive are amongst the highest in the world, with rates reaching $1,000/sq. ft . Most of the buildings in this area were built in the 1950's, giving it an "Art Deco" look.
