Raheja Platinum, Upper Worli, Mumbai, India
…In the running for the title of the Tallest Tower in Mumbai!

What may very well be Mumbai’s tallest known tower, and one of India’s tallest commercial towers had been announced by K Raheja Universal Builders!

The 85 floor (!) nearly 300m tall signature Raheja Platinum skyscraper is the one of those towers that aims that will break the mental/cultural dam holding back corporate skyscraper construction in Mumbai.

Located in Upper Worli (aka Lower Parel), Raheja Platinum will rub shoulders with a slew of supertalls and skyscrapers that represent the transformation of old textile mill land to worldclass real estate.

Ahuja Towers, Worli, Mumbai, India
… aka the 54 story tower that says Worli just won’t quit

Yup, that’s two Worli skyscraper posts in a row. Why? Only cause Mumbai’s Worli neighborhood is one of the most happening places in India for skyscraper construction!

Ahuja Towers, claims developer, Ahuja Group via lead architects P&T Group, Singapore, aims to be “one of the tallest residential buildings in Mumbai!” They’re not kidding, either. The project comprises two adjoining towers of 20,000 sq. m that I estimate will be just shy of 200m tall, which will complement the other 200m+ buildings coming up in the area.

The project features a 10-story carpark with a pool and amenities on top, extensive greenery and has its first condo starting on the 14th floor, guaranteeing spectacular panoramic views of Mumbai and the Indian Ocean.

RNA 360, Worli, Mumbai, India
… Another interesting twist to the growing Woli neighborhood skyline

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.

Oberoi Skyz, Worli, Mumbai, India
… possibly Mumbai’s tallest twin tower and once Mumbai’s tallest u/c tower projects

Oberoi Skyz by Oberoi Constructions is one of the first skyscrapers proposed for the now growing Worli skyine.

Touted as a super-lux development, Oberoi Constructions apparently didn’t even deign to advertise, but instead targeted über-rich individual clients including Indian sports stars, industry tycoons and A-list Bollywood celebs.

In contrast to many of the unique architectural gems coming up in Mumbai, Oberoi Skyz is decidedly run-of-the-mill. Comprising two towers of 65 floors, each with one unit per floor, the towers are located smack dab in the middle of Mumbai’s Worli neighborhood’s bourgening skyline where it will rub shoulders with equally tall towers and even taller supertalls.

So while the architecture of the 65-story twin towers (50 stories + 15 floor podium) is nothing special, this was not always the case. Skyz it was one of the first towers in Mumbai whose developers thought tall. The project was originally supposed to be a massive “rocket-shaped” tower 90 stories/345 meters tall, but were denied clearance because they would interfere with a nearby TV tower.

Thankfully, that era of thinking in Mumbai is coming to a close, with even taller towers having since been approved in virtually the same area as Oberoi Skyz. So you can say that this tower was either proposed too soon and was thus shortened, or the legal wrangling surrounding this tower’s approval paved the way for other, taller projects.
