309/365 – The Imperial (Mumbai)

The Imperial is a twin-tower residential skyscraper complex in Mumbai, India that were the tallest buildings in the country till June 2012 when Palais Royale topped out.

The towers are located at the sea front in Tardeo, South Mumbai. Construction was completed and the towers were inaugurated in 2010.

Location

The Imperial is located in Tardeo, Mumbai. Imperial Towers, designed by Mumbai architect Hafeez Contractor as his most recognizable project to date, were designed as Mumbai’s tallest towers.

The Imperial Twin Towers are built on former slum land where the current re-development model of builders providing free land and rehabilitation to slum dwellers in exchange for rights for property development, was first put into practice on a big scale. This model was used for slum and mill land redevelopment across the city, and across India as a whole.

Observations  

A private observation deck is present at the top of each building by the cone spires. It’s not open for general public contrary to popular beliefs.
