Bombay’s and indeed India’s tallest residential tower is coming up at Lower Parel. Correction: this will be the tallest in the world, given that Q1 on the Gold Coast in Australia will be dwarfed by the giant on Bombay skies, the tallest residential tower in the world. The 117-storey tower will rise like a monolith on the city’s skyline. Estimated height is half a kilometer. Hm.
But is this a good thing? Imagine around 276 apartments, the total water requirement, sewage disposal, parking for cars. It will put a big strain on the eco-system in the area. Imagine 276 toilets flushing on 117 floors in the morning. Haha. Already environmental bodies are crying foul, as the cliché goes.
