Bo why does a measly 30 story building warrant its own mention?
Because RNA Builders‘s proposed RNA 360 may be one of the coolest little towers coming up in Mumbai!

About several months ago, a very unique-looking tower appeared on Mumbai Property Exchange. No information was given on builder, location or architect. This was then posted in Skyscrapercity’s Mumbai Project Update thread. The rendering showed a 30 floor tower whose design appears to be a natural extension to the organic “plant stalk” design trend in new Mumbai buildings (probably most visibly exemplified by Indiabulls’s Jupiter Mills Tower in nearby Parel.)

After RNA Builders updated their website, it was revealed that they were the builders behind the project, and that it was (apty) called RNA 360, presumably for the 360 degree view of the Indian Ocean and Mumbai skyline it will afford its tenants.
For more information, about this project read on!…
The 30 story tower, similar in idea to Calatrava’s canceled 80 South Street proposal for New York city, features curved balconies jutting out on every other floor from the central core of the building. The tower’s location will not only make it super eye-catching from the street, but will offer its tenants some fantastic views of Mumbai and the growing Worli neighborhood skyline and the ocean.

Right now, not a whole lot is revealed about the project, and the released design is obviously a pre-rendering giving a basic idea of how the building will look. When more information comes out, I’ll keep you updated.
