About 30 floors up now. I think the first setback should be happening soon.

Assuming it'll be 117 floors in the end, and 30 floors are up, that places the top just out of the frame in the picture above. The building is beautiful for sure, but I wonder if it will look too out of place given its surroundings. I'd love to see a render of it plopped into a picture of the area similar to that above. Any takers? I could shop it in there, but the angle would be off by about 30 degrees...

OK... so very rough cut and paste job. Rotated, but close to scale:

^Nice visualization.

World One is in a complex of 2 other towers of similarish size; World Crest, which can be seen under construction to the right of World One, (70 floors, IIRC) and the Queen Tower, which will be in between the two and be 90 floors. It'll fit in fine when the rest of the complex is completed.

Strange looking area to put this tower in.

Thats just a really weird place to put a super glitzy supertall.

What's the second tower going up behind it? Is it now twins?

Man, Mumbai, sure is changing!

Triplets, actually, although the other towers won't be as tall.

Those shorter glass buildings already in existence around the base are kind of neat, if a bit cheap looking.

Thanks for the update! They sure are getting up there. My count takes me up 44 floors and the core at 56 floors.
