Unitech Grande, Noida, India
…Delhi National Capital Region’s biggest and tallest development to date!
Hi all, check this out! (click for larger image):
^^ Look like India to you?
Located in Noida, one of the commercial hubs and one of several future CBDs of India’s National Capital Region (NCR = Delhi, New Delhi and nodal cities), Unitech Group recently announced what will include the tallest approved skyscrapers in the NCR, Unitech Grande.
Noida is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Conceived as a one of several greenfield metropolitan nodes that would focus the development of both Old and New Dehli, it features world-class infrastructure designed to support support high-capacity residential and commercial development. The eventual plan by 2015 is to have a fully modern central business district comprising commercial skyscrapers around at least one supertall — one of several CBD nodal cities (which also includes Faridabad, Gurgaon and Ghaziabad.)
Unitech is one of India’s largest builders, and continually have churned out world-class buildings with a cutting-edge architecture that is designed to be a modern take on traditional Indian architecture, even to the point of being designed to adhere to ancient Vaastu principals. Their towers, like those of all developers in India, continue to grow taller and taller with each project. It’s expected that their Mumbai project on mill-land redevelopments will be even taller still.
For more information, and a large collection of hi-res pictures of this awesome project originally posted by me on Skyscrapercity.com, read on!…
Unitech Grande is located in a sub-section of Noida called “Express City.” In 2006 Unitech purchased the property that would later become Unitech Grande after intense bidding in what was then India’s biggest land deal (in only one year since then, this record surpassed by a factor of several tens larger.)
Unitech Grande comprises over 80 high and mid rises that surround a park and golf course. The tallest at 60 stories, and 8 in the 40 storey range that act as peaks in the string of buildings.
It is the first major development of what will become Noida’s highrise district, with supertall-encompassing CBDs in the works in the next 5-8 years.
Here are some more pics of the project taken from a movie walkthrough of the project:
^ Continuing to ‘pan backwards’ the last pic so that the towers of the previous pic are now in the far end of the valley, you can see the taller center towers come into view. Part of the 50 storey skyscraper with its beautiful facade can be seen on the left hand side.
Unitech Grande is a sign of Indian things to come :)
