Mumbais Eight-Sided Scraper

You might have blinked and missed it, but currently under construction in the Indian city of Mumbai is a new 320 metre tall residential tower with the Bondesque name, Palais Royale.

With an octagonal floorplate that dictates the overall appearance of the tower and follows through Vastu philosophy, the scheme has a white Corian clad frame with balconies and recessed floor to ceiling glazing behind it.

Designed by Talathy and Panthaki, the Corian cladding was specifically chosen because it resembles marble, but without the weight and needless to say, the cost.

Thanks to the girth on show, the development looks surprisingly short for a 320 metre tall tower, something that is further magnified by the fact that not every floor is marked. Rather it's a case that the external frame shows off double height glazing as well as individual levels making it appear rather shorter from some angles than the 66 storeys it reaches.

Despite the copious amounts of glazing, due to the wind-flow in and around the building that gets particularly strong during the monsoon season, not all apartments will have windows that open meaning they will have a number of other facilities fitted to compensate include ionisers.

The building is already under construction and is being built by Shree Ram Urban Infrastructure Ltd who aim for a 2010 finished, something that is quite ambitious as its concrete frame has reached less than a third of its height.
