Over in Mumbai, a $315M skyscraper called World One Tower is rising fast, slated to become the world's tallest residential tower. And as of this week, the Telegraph reports, apartments in the lavish skyscraper have finally gone on sale, in London at least. World One Tower will reach a superlative-winning 1,450 feet upon completion in 2016, just beating a planned New York City skyscraper that will be 1,421 feet and the tallest in the Western Hemisphere. Anyway, with interiors designed by Italian fashion house Giorgio Armani and views overlooking the Arabian sea, units are starting at around $2.15M.
Designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, which is the American firm behind the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and the iconic U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles, the 117-floor building will contain 300 units, with penthouse units slotted on the top. According to the Daily Mail, rooms will take on a palette of "taupe, chocolate, grey, and cream" and combine the "'Armani philosophy' with the 'magnificent textile legacy of India.'" The complex will also include two other shorter buildings, along with a gym, spa, and cricket pitch.
