    LOWER PAREL | Namaste Tower - W Hotel | 301 m | 62 fl | Site Prep

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Say Namaste to the Namaste tower! Designed by the Atkins design studio, work IS currently underway on this 300m-62 storeyed mixed use tower that will encompass a hotel, office and retail space. The location is Ambika mills which is a couple hundred meters south of the Shangri-La hotel. The developer of the project is unknown.

    The renders and text were submitted by Atkins to the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona (3-5 Nov 2010). Link to project page

    Namaste: Hotel and Office Tower
    Category: Future Projects - Commercial
    Location: Mumbai, India
    Architects: WS Atkins, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Atkins, United Arab Emirates


    Key Statistics:
    • 120,000 m2 of Gross Construction Area
    • 380 key luxury hotel
    • Exclusive restaurants, bars, banqueting and spa facilities
    • 9,000 m2 of A grade office space
    • 6,000 m2 of world class retail space
    • 300 m overall building height


    Visual Relationships to and from the Site

    With a proposed height of 300 m the tower will be seen from a distance of more than 40 km. Therefore the visual appearance of the project as a major landmark is of great importance to the city of Mumbai.

    Views from the tower will extend to the South over the Mahalkshi Race course towards the Mumbai Peninsula and to the South West over the Indian Ocean. The views to the north East are towards a number of adjacent towers that are currently being constructed. The orientation and massing of the tower have been designed in order to make the very best of these visual relationships.

    General Arrangement



    The tower is made up of two separate wings (or hands) which together form the architectural expression of “Namasteâ€￾. The space between the wings forms the corridor spaces. At either end of the corridor space a pair of open atria will offer hotel guests dramatic framed views out over the city.

    The Podium

    The geometry of the podium is designed to integrate fully with the design of the tower. Thus it is a highly symmetrical form that responds to the wing like canopies above the drop off. Containing mostly retail, the facade of the podium is activated with water features and fountains that cascade down to street level.

    The Summit

    At the summit of the building a generous quadruple height atrium space encloses a Sky Restaurant and Bar which will provide a unique vantage point for patrons to gain panoramic views out over the city.

    DADAR | Kohinoor Square | MUMBAI |203m-52fl + 117m-32fl | U/C


    [​IMG]

    Under construction in Dadar on what previously used to be the site of Kohinoor Mills #3, Kohinoor Square will be a major mark on the Mumbai skyline, towering 203m over the city.The project was designed by gkkworks.

    gkkworks won a design competition for this mixed-use commercial high rise tower in Mumbai, India. The source of inspiration for this design concept is the meaning of the name Kohinoor: mountain of light. Kohinoor is also the name of the largest diamond in the world. The diamond is the ultimate gemstone. It is the hardest substance found in nature, yet the most transparent, with a long history in India. The tower design objectives challenge the typical glass office building by the abstract pattern created by diamond geometry and triangulation. The triangular shapes are layered onto the building mass and facades, through clearly defined planes and opposites: void and solid, opacity and transparency. The result is a building design that not only has symbolic meaning but creates a unique and powerful presence worthy of the Kohinoor name.

    Elphinstone Mills and Jupiter Mills, Mumbai by developers Indiabulls Real Estate.


    [​IMG]


    One of the first projects announced in a series of redevelopments of former textile mill lands in South Mumbai, the tower will be Mumbai's first purely commercial skyscraper to break ground -- all other skyscrapers being purely residential or mixed residential/hotel. Not only does it herald the next phase of high-quality but infrastructure-intensive commercial skyscraper development in Mumbai, but it is also an indication of what the redevelopment of the massive mill lands and slums in the next 5 years will mean for Mumbai and her booming skyline.

    Initially reported to only be 40 stories tall, the height has since been increased to 60 stories. Designed by Chicago based firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, is the latest in environmentally friendly signature towers planned for Mumbai.

    The Imperial also known as Twin Tower, Tardeo,Mumbai

    Already Completed and now ready for use

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The Imperial is located in Tardeo, Mumbai. Imperial Towers, designed by Mumbai architect Hafeez Contractor as his most recognizable project to date, were designed as Mumbai’s tallest towers.The Imperial Twin Towers are built on former slum land where the current re-development model of builders providing free land and rehabilitation to slum dwellers in exchange for rights for property development, was first put into practice on a big scale. This model was used for slum and mill land redevelopment across the city, and across India as a whole.

    Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, KANJURMARG, 144 m ,29 floors


    The Radisson hotel will be an architectural icon. The five star hotel is almost 35 storeys high and built over 4 mega columns each 72 meters tall. It is designed by India’s leading architect Hafeez Contractor where as the interior designing would be done by HBA/Hirsch Bedner Associates, one of the leading hospitality interior designer across the globe.

    It is good to see all the development, but friends there is one fact which people need to remember.
    a) Bombay is not actually an island but group of 7 islands that was made as one big island by land fill
    b) When constructing the tower, they have to see various estimates but as per me they have to also see the ground pressure etc

    As per me. the towers should be made but ensure that the ground pressure is well distrubuted meaning HAVE A WIDE BASE TOWER.

    Many people say about, Lets make MUMBAI INTO SHANGHAI, Firstly Shanghai is different than Mumbai, they have better roads and infrastructure which Mumbai lacks, when you build more towers, you bring in more people, and are we really prepared for more people and cars moving in? It might soon take a few hours to get from Airport to these towers. be sure,
    These are just towers, and the logic behind these towers are
    There is big factory space available, LETS BUILD TOWER. People will buy, yes.
    But then how are the roads to these towers? most areas that these towers are built have heavy traffic blockages and its common knowledge, Having a big heart is good, but sure damn as hell you need clean arteries and veins to pump the blood efficiently.

    Read the following article posted on Chinese website with photos
    Shanghai Ground Cracking Under the Weight of Its Skyscrapers – chinaSMACK

    Does anyone have a plan to ensure that this does not happen?

    If yes, then go ahead and make the towers, if not, make a plan of where to sell the steel scrap when the building comes down.
