to an already awesome design (you see where we’re going with this?)
(an project update as of 07 Oct, 08!)
Yeah… I’m man enough to admit it…
HOLY CRAP WERE WE WRONG!
Remember our post detailing a brand spaking new tower to be built alongside Mumbai’s tallest tower proposal, India Tower, and how we went on about how cool that was?
^ Yeah, OK, I get it. Jeez.
Well, whoops, here’s the real scoop, also cool but also somewhat disappointing. wait for it… wait for it…
Yup! One of India and the World’s greenest towers has changed in name and design! Rotating-Blocky India tower is officially redesigned and rebadged as DB Tower, the flagship project of DB Realty. In our defense, until fairly recently the all information that had been made public has been confused and contradictory.
^ DB Tower = new India Tower = new hotness.

The finalized design will be huge — at 75 stories of residential and untold more in lobbies, sky lobbies and utility floors, and boasting a height and crown that will push this supertall to over 400 meters! Like its India Tower precursor, it will be of mixed (residential + hotel) use. Construction will soon commence with an aim for completion by 2011.
Indeed the DB Tower, like the erstwhile India tower, is still going to be LEED Platinum certified, and is designed by the same architects, Fox and Fowle (FXFOWLE).
