Tallest building in India

India will get among its first tallest buildings. The tower, to be built in Kolkata, will rise to a height equivalent to 83 storeys. "We will actually construct 54 floors, but at 250 m, it will be easily be the tallest commercial structure in the country, its height corresponding to an 83-storey tower," says Mr. A.N. Shroff, the leader of the consortium Diamond Group that is developing the building. The project is coming up on the vacant land that was once the proposed site for Grand Hyatt. The 54-storey structure will tower over the Chowringhee skyline, housing 10 levels of car parking at the base and a helipad on top. "The Chowringhee building will have many firsts, like a 4.2 m floor-to-ceiling height, a grand entrance lobby 42ft high, a sky garden on the 29th level, restaurants on the 50th and 51st floors and three levels of viewing galleries above that," said Mr. Vinoo Chadha, principal architect for the project. The cost land for the proposed building is Rs 432 crore, construction is estimated to cross Rs 200 crore.
