MMRDA's proposed 101 storeys Iconic Tower at Wadala, Mumbai - several firms are keen to design and build!

Tallest in India and among the world’s 10 tallest buildings:

Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) hopes the tower, at 101 storeys, will be not only the tallest in the country but also among the world’s 10 tallest buildings.

The Rs 2,500-crore project will be executed on a build-operate-transfer basis. Of the 101 floors, 30 will be given to the developer who can use those for hospitality and other businesses.

The MMRDA plans to ensure that the tower conforms to green norms.

“Nine companies have bought the bid document for constructing the tower while 23 companies have shown an interest in designing and offering consultancy services,” said R Ramanna, additional chief of transport and communication, MMRDA.
