New Tallest Building in Delhi: Supertech Supernova Skyscraper (80 Floors, 300 Meters)

I’m sure Indians are going to love this news. The Indian Supertech Group has launched a project called the Supertech Supernova project with a 80 floor super tall skyscraper as its centerpiece.

The star of this project is a supertall skyscraper named as Supertech Supernova. It will be a giant tower of a building rising to a height of 300 meters or 984 feet tall. The skyscraper will have 80 floors. They claim it is going to be the tallest building of 300 meters that will be completed in North India!

Here are some computer generated graphic rendering of the proposed Supernova skyscraper which some say will also be the new tallest building in Delhi very soon.

In fact this Supertech Supernova project in South Delhi will be a new township or district of Delhi city. A specialty with this project is it will be offering 70% open area with each plot.supertech skyscraper delhi The Supertech Supernova will be a mixed use development and offer Residential, Serviced Apartments, Hotels, Shopping Malls, Office Spaces and Recreational Centres.Supertech supernova building

In short this new Supertech Supernova district of New Delhi will be a beautiful lush green area with one super tall giant tower and 5 other luxury high rise skyscrapers that offers the super rich of India a very luxurious lifestyle.delhi tallest building

But as someone who has seen a lot of designs like this for skyscrapers in India I’m skeptical of this building being completed. That’s because in recent years there has been many such proposals made by Indian companies that have never gone beyond being proposals. And even the few India skyscrapers like the India Tower, the 2nd tallest building in the world, which began construction has been put on hold due to various reasons. So will this 80 storey Supernova building ever building be built? Will they find investors for this project? Only time will tell.

On the other hand the Supertech group is already begun building North India’s tallest residential development project called North Eye (also in New Delhi) which also has a unusual and beautiful 255 meter skyscraper called the North Eye with 60 floors. So who knows they may manage to build this Supernova tower too!

Florida Panama City Beach Apartment Skyscrapers Cause Weather Change

We admire the tall skyscrapers and incredible mega construction projects going on around the world. While that is so we also see them causing a lot of environmental  changes. Most of the time these environmental changes we hear about are mostly negative. However recently, February 5, 2012 to be exact, some apartment skyscrapers on the beach of Panama City in Florida, United States caused a very interesting weather change to happen.

You can see what these tall buildings did to the weather or cloud’s of the area to be  precise in the pictures here. (We got these photos via an email forward from Interesting Emails website).

A helicopter pilot and his boss from Panama City beach FL were able to photograph this amazing weather changes that happen due tall buildings.

This phenomenal change in whether is said to be scientifically referred as a cloud formation called the cloud form waves. However when these pictures were spread across the world thanks to quick social media sharing on Internet websites like Facebook people began calling this amazing event as the Panama City Cloud Tsunami. You can easily see from the photos why they were quick to call it a Tsunami!

According to environmental experts, this phenomenal happened as the hot air mist from the ocean was blown towards the tall skyscraper apartment buildings on the Panama City beach. When the humid hot air encountered the artificial tall barriers (it probably thought them as mountains!) it started rising up and then freezing a little because of the temperature drop as the air goes up and then formed these thin cloud like form you see drifting over like waves over these buildings.

Its very fortunate the world was able to see this amazing whether phenomenal through photos like this. We should be very thankful to the photographers of these wonderful photos, Mr. Mike Schaeffer, a helicopter pilot and Mr. JR Hott, (owner of Panhandle Helicopter services) which offers Panama city tourists sky tours around the Panama City area in Florida.

People who like skyscrapers and giant towers are naturally very curious about the world’s tallest building.

Some of the FAQ or Frequently Asked Questions regarding the world’s tallest building are;

However, I’m very sad to see people asking these type of questions in forums and Q&A sites. That’s because if they just took the time to type these questions they have about the world record holding building in terms of height, size or any other aspect into a search engine like Google or Yahoo they can easily find the answer in the first few search results within a matter of minutes. However for some reason some people take the time to type them out in forums and yahoo questions and wait till someone answers them in a day, week or even months! I’m really sorry for these people. So I’ll answer them here once and for all so that in future if someone wants to know the answer to these questions on this website then I can direct them to this page.

Tallest Building In India: 700 meters tall Mumbai India Tower in 2016! (126 floors)

This is the India Tower, the proposed supertall skyscraper in Bombay or Mumbai, India. If it is built will be the tallest building in India by 2016 and the second tallest building in the world after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai!

(Though construction work on Mumbai India Tower began it has been put on hold since 2011. See comments below for more. So the Lodha World One Mumbai building is currently India’s Tallest Building Under Construction)

India Tower will be 700 meters or 2,300 feet tall and consist of 126 storey or floors according to Wikipedia. Compared to other tallest buildings in India today, India Tower is so tall it will really look like Gulliver standing among Lilliputians even in India’s Skyscraper City of Mumbai. That is because as of 2012 the tallest building of India are the two Imperial Towers in Mumbai. These Mumbai Imperial Tower I and II are only 254 meters or 833 feet tall. That means the new India Tower will be nearly 3 times the height of the current highest building in India!

Construction on India Tower began in 2010. To complete it is expected to take 6 years. It is developed by Dynamix Balwas (DB) Realtors as a mixed Hotel, Residential and Retail project. Upon completion the India tower will host the world famous Hyatt Hotel chains local Hotel in Mumbai with guest rooms, service apartments, exclusive banqueting and meeting facilities.

Because of this India Tower is also sometimes erroneously called as Park Hyatt Tower or Dynamix Balwas Tower, DB Tower.

No other completed buildings or under-construction buildings in India come even near as tall as this new India Tower. The nearest revel in India for the crown of India’s tallest Building is the World One skyscraper at Worli, Mumbai City. (The World One building is also under construction and planed to top off at 442 meters or 1,450 feet on completion in 2014)

According to the Hyatt website, India Tower will have a Hyatt Hotel, one of five new Hyatt properties in India. The Hyatt Hotel in this iconic 126 story India Tower will include 255 guest rooms and 55 serviced apartments. Hyatt had selected Foster and Partners of London as the leading designers for this impressive tower and full-service hotel.

(Update: Currently India Tower building is sadly put on hold due to the volatile economic and financial situation.)
