… one of Mumbai’s tallest all-residential skyscrapers and an awesome futuristic design!
Long awaited renderings for the promised residential tower at redevelopment of Jupiter Mills, Mumbai (Bombay) by developers Indiabulls Real Estate has finally been released by Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects:

According to the architects, “Jupiter Mills is a 75-story luxury residential tower in the heart of downtown Mumbai. To maximize views, the tower includes 50 stories of residential condominiums from floors 25-75. The building was designed to a LEED Platinum standard.”
For more information, renderings and news of this projectoriginally posted by me on Skyscrapercity.com, read on!…
This tower will come literally right beside Indiabulls’s Elphinstone Mills Tower (see link for the blog post about it and pics and info.)In one of India’s biggest real estate deals, Indiabulls, India’s financial services and real estate company, had purchased the former Jupiter Mill and adjacent former Elphinstone Mill from India’s National Textile Corporation in 2005, to redevelop them into high rise residential, commercial and retail properties.
The former textile mills are located in Mumbai’s mill lands, a vast swath of 19th century industrial and textile factories strategically located in central Mumbai. These areas are to form the backbone of Mumbai’s Central Business District and command some of the highest real estate prices in the world. This tower is the latest among a slew of skyscraper projects made public in this area of Mumbai.
While still in the final stages of design, the Jupiter Mills Tower is the latest project reflecting the new trend in Mumbai for organic-looking towers, based on ancient Indian Vaastu Shastra design.The size of the tower is significant, likely pushing it to supertall heights.
Comparing it to the much more conventionally proportioned 60-storey Elphinstone Mills Tower right next beside it, this 75-storey tower will likely be significantly taller, owing to its unconventional design and tall ‘stalk’-like central core. If the rendering is anything to go by, this tower will likely be at least 300 meters tall.
With construction of the Elphinstone Mills tower and other commercial midrises at both plots already underway, we’re likely to see the design finalized pretty soon, and if the turnaround time is anything like Indiabulls’s other co-located projects, we can expect to see construction start within a years time. When more news comes on this project, I’ll be sure to keep you all updated
