MUMBAI | RNA Mirage | 158 M | 40 FLOORS

RNA Mirage -- Worli, Mumbai




The 40-story residential RNA Mirage is one of the first modern skyscrapers to come up since the Indian economic boom. Developed by RNA Builders and designed by architect Hafeez Contractor, the retro-futuristic art-deco design is a homage to Mumbai's rich art deco architecture and has influenced many newer towers with its throwback look and falling water podium.



I love the design, but the tower's original design was actually a bit funkier, which to me looked more like a designer purse than a tower, so good thing it changed.

RNA Mirage is one of the first groundbreaking skyscrapers to come up at Worli, paving the way for increasingly taller buildings that have culminated in the numerous supertalls proposed in the area today. It is located next to Raheja Legend, also u/c:


^ The next door Raheja Legend

The location and design of both towers will ensure commanding views and a greater funkiness to the growing Worli skyline.
