Hi Guys,

Getting some facts right about this discussion

I am frm Mumbai,place where this house is built,its called Antilia, its worth GBP 630 Million.Its owned by Mr Mukesh Ambani, 2nd richest Indian in the world and also currently 4th Richest Individual in the world,together Ambani brothers are considered 3rd richest individuals on Forbes.

This house may be a sheer indulgence,but also provides jobs to 600 people, GBP 1.5 Million is paid in taxes to government for this house,paid a electricty bill of GBP 45000 for its 1st Month.In a city like Mumbai,which called new York of South Asia,we live in tall skyscrapers, you'be amazed to hear that latest development of 160 Storey residential project coming up in Mumbai with penthouse suites and in-House parking ( I mean literally), average height of new project in mumbai (which is an island) is approx 35 storeys.

Speaking about Mumbai,its is Financial Capital of India, generates about 40% taxes for India, Land rates in South Mumbai are higher than Chicago or san fransisco,some where below Tokyo and land scarcity on rise,hence all the skyscrapers.

In the current Financial turmoil,most of you would be surprised to know that India was never heavily affected and continued to maintain its growth rate at 9.7%, mainly because India produces and also has capacity to consume its produce due to growing Upper Middle class.

India has never taken any Financial Aid from any nations for natural disasters,terrorist attacks or any other disasters, global citizens coming to india staying here, enjoying india are most welcome, but they should refrain from talking about what we do with our resources!!!

Indians are very enterprising,but do not ignore education,hence today we have largest pool of engineers and doctors in the world,Indian Universities have high standards of education(imparted in English),so we have approx 2 million engineers and doctors graduating every year!!,besides the english speaking back office staff offcourse...

When I see europeans and americans criticizing india for all wrong reasons, trying to make you guys aware, we are no longer the land of snake charmers, we are educated,intelligent and developing very quickly.

Or else why do you think your governments are looking east?

2 Billion On that!!!!!! In England there is a house worth 1.75 billion and though it is a eye soure, at least you can see your moneys worth!!!!! I don't know about in the US but in Britain we have to apply for bulding permission from our goverment, our land and we still have to ask nicley, I wounder how long it would take him to apply for that!!!!! I applyed for a conservotry and it took me 2 years!!!!!!

Secondly ,Barbara, I wounder how the people who live in the area feel about this? Are they happy or disgusted? I would really like to find out.

Finaly it really does remind me of two unamable eyes saws that their building on ground zero. I mean those new buildings they want to build there are just ugly and wont fit into that priceless new york skyline, like this building wont!!!!

Barbara:

Interesting residence.  If as Abhay, #74 says, the residence employee 600 than it is probably a good thing.  It is admirable that India has taken no money from other for disasters, etc.  The Indian's I know are all very well educated, smart and very friendly.

It might just be the picture, but it looks kind of unstable to me.

Crazy is the only word that comes to mind.

I guess every culture has its example of outlandish luxury.

We are used to the castles of Europe, or the mansions in America.

This is just outside the boundary of our imagination.

Nah....i wouldn't live there even if i am given.

It is all material.

I once sold a miilion dollar home and all friends of mine asked what the difference in that house?

I bluntly answered: "more bricks"

thanks for sharing

Hey true it is all material, but indians have a vast magnitude of wealth now, which has come from their sheer business acumen, like middle east had oil, africa minerals, indians have education and business skills and adaptability .Lot of Indians have wealth where after investing for future they do feel like indulging a bit, as did americas and europe all these years, Indians are doing it now.Besides no credit crunch in India...banks here won't lend you more than your total worth ever!!

Besides the guy who owns the house has cars worth $ 7 Billion USD which are parked on first 10 storeys of the building (it is a parking lot mate!),well besides which he now owns largest petrochemical company by production in world..., all his business are worth over $30 Billion USD..what would he with that kinda money...i would spend a bit..wouldnt you??

 

Cheers

Hi Barbara, a great view from the top floor I imagine. The only problem I see

is ALL the company you would have if you owned it. We all know the saying after 3 days,

it's time to leave.
