The Greenest Skyscraper In India?

green_tower_india_FXFOWLE.jpg

The India Tower is a 60-story skyscraper in Mumbai that could be the greenest in India. The developer is aiming to get a LEED gold rating for the project. The tower’s unusual rotated design was created by FXFOWLE architects. Each rotated section of the tower has a different use: a retail section, a Park Hyatt hotel, and a section of condominiums.


Designed to have the least possible impact on the environment, the tower will integrate current innovative sustainable systems and technologies throughout the building – solar shading, natural ventilation, daylighting, rainwater harvesting, and green interior finishes and materials. Construction is underway and should be done in 2010.

    Hello Karm

    Maybe this can be an opportunity to contact the ARCHITECTS and Egnineer involved in the project.
