The project sounds interesting & exciting and am glad that projects such as this are being constructed in Mumbai. The shape is amazing and unique to our citiesin India.
SUGGESTIONS: I hope rain water harvesting/ desalination plants for water from the sea has also been taken care of as getting of the grid or atleast minimal impact on the water would make this project truly unique.
We in India get abundant sunshine therefore besides shading the solar energy could be harnessed for public lighting on the face and roof of the building.
Maintenance of buildings and services is another aspect in our country which is lacking therefore i hope the services being put in are easily servicable
cheers to a greener future.

New retail and office block nears completion 

The 60-story Elphinstone Mills complex in downtown Mumbai includes Class A office space and a pedestrian friendly retail podium. The building is designed to a LEED Platinum standard and will create a new icon in the skyline of Mumbai.

Every floor of the office tower features outdoor terraces and multi-story garden atria, fully integrating the interior workspace with natural elements of the exterior environment. These garden spaces provide tenants with a shaded area for relaxation and socialization; natural light is abundant, while the overhangs simultaneously shade the units below. The building is also oriented to minimize solar gain, decreasing the heating effect of direct sunlight and increasing comfort levels for building tenants.

Each atrium space is connected to a central atrium within the building’s core. Air flows from the exterior environment into this central space, accelerating as it travels down the atrium toward a series of wind turbines, which generate power for the building.

Elphinstone Mills is scheduled for completion in September 2008
