(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.)

    india tower is on hold because of a court case b/w DB Realty and Bombay Municipal Corporation on difference in Premium. The case is currently in Mumbai High Court.

    Regardless of the verdict – DB Realty will start construction as gestation period of this project is well beyond current macro economic situation. If DB wins the verdict – the project will be green-lit from day 1. If not, DB would pay the extra premium based on negotiations (out of court) currently underway and restart the work immediately

      I may correct you that India Tower would be the tallest commercial tower in India if constructed. World One tower is the tallest residential tower being constructed… There’s a huge difference in the projected heights of both the buildings, India Tower is 2300ft where world one is just 1450ft… Hope you realize the difference… ;)

  8. Anmol Sarkar says:

    If this project would have been proposed in USA,they would have completed by 2013, this delay just because this is India,lotzzzzz of worthless obstacles…ministry,pocket filling,nonsense management of indian gvt..etc are like climbers, preventing the development.

  33. As we know that Mumbai, the city of dreams and comfort living, has always been known from its grand life style and I think it will be a great news for Mumbai’s people that Mumbai have world’s second highest building in 2016.
