Ummm where are the I-beams!? For a building as big as a skyscraper aren't giant I-beams supposed to be anchored well within the concrete foundation? Not just re-bar?

^ Not necessarily. Burj Khalifa was a steel-reinforced concrete building, and used a similar triangular massing as this tower.

The torrential rains of the monsoon are delaying the project a bit.

All projects in Mumbai have slowed down significantly due to the monsoon rains. This project should pick up speed once the rains slow down in October.

India Tower isn't one of the projects that has been scrapped.

Here's a little bit of info on this season's monsoon.

Quote:
According to the India Meteorological Department, by September 1, the monsoon usually begins to retreat from northwest India and southeastern Pakistan. That hasn't happened this year, and the monsoon rains are forecast to continue at least for the remainder of this week--well into the 3rd week of September. This very unusual monsoon season also started a week earlier than normal.

Here's what might be the real reason for the delay:

BMC stops work on DB’s 125-floor Charni Road hotel

Nauzer K Bharucha
Oct 1

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has put the brakes on DB Hospitality’s upcoming 125-storey luxury hotel at Charni Road in south Mumbai.
Touted as the tallest hotel building in India, work on the iconic India Tower (Park Hyatt Hotel) project was halted after the civic building proposals department issued a stop-work notice on May 25 last and demanded a premium of around Rs 200 crore from the developer. The project cost is Rs 2,800 crore.

During Praful Patel’s tenure as aviation minister, the Airports Authority of India sanctioned a height of 424m for the hotel. So far, only the basement work has been completed.

Trouble started about six months ago when the civic body demanded that the company pay premium and development charges running into a few hundred crores for the various building concessions it had sought.

The BMC has issued a stopwork notice to DB Hospitality’s hotel project at Charni Road for failing to pay Rs 200 crore in arrears. Civic sources said the demand of Rs 460 crore was reduced to Rs 212 crore when portions of the building were included in the floor space index (FSI), the ratio of total built up area vis-a-vis plot size.

Since India Tower will exceed the allowable FAR/FSI for the site, DB has to pay a fee for that. The disagreement over the size of this fee is what caused the work stoppage.

this is really nice building. But judging from how much work theyve done, id say they got a lot more to do.

This one has been put on hold indefinately and should be moved. As far as I know the developers have to deal with some legal issues (some got arrested etc.).

If this is actually being built that's great, although I don't follow this thread. Good to see one of the world's first civilizations climbing back. Although I think the seasonal monsoons will affect this building becuase KEYWORD: Seasonal.

The monsoon ended a while ago... and work didn't restart.

DBRealty has some issues to work out if they want to continue working on the tower.

-Resolving the massive airrights payment
-Waqf board issue
-Criminal charges against some of the executives of DB
