Here is the 1450 feet tall Lodha World One Mumbai Residential Skyscraper. It is currently India’s tallest building under construction and is a residential skyscraper with a proposed height of 442 meters and 117 floors!
According to some claims this Mumbai World One skyscraper will be the world’s tallest residential building once completed! Giant Towers agrees with this claim because the supertall Pentonium building in Dubai, which was set to become the world’s tallest residential tower with a height of 516m and 122 floors, is currently on hold for a long time.
Even this World One tower was schedule to be completed by 2014 but according to latest news from Lodha Group the building will be inaugurated somewhere in the first quarter of 2016.
Below is a view of how the Mumbai skyline will look once the World One building is completed. You can clearly see how tall it is against the other skyscrapers in Mumbai.
At any rate, this Mumbai World Tower will be India’s tallest building for sometime at least, because the construction work on the proposed tallest building in India, the 700 meter, (126 floors) Mumbai India Tower has been put on hold since 2011.
This World One tower is part of a massive multi tower project by India’s Lodha Group on the defunct Shrinivas Mills in the heart of Mumbai. The architect of the World One Mumbai is Pei Cobb Freed and Partners. (Please note, we hear authorities have given approval for only 90 floors!)
Mumbai World One building will house about 300 super luxury homes, including three and four bedroom residences, villas with own private pools and a limited number of luxury mansions as well.
The apartment prices in World One would start from INR7.5 crore (US$1.4 million) and the most expensive one be as much as INR50 crore (US$9.2 million). The project will cost INR2000 crore (US$370 million) and Lodha Group expects to earn a revenue of INR5000 crore (US$920 million) from the sale of the apartments according to Wikipedia.
We can see that this building has already won the hearts of many Indians by the many names by which they refer it such as, the World Towers Mumbai, World One Lodha and Mumbai World One among others.
