On 27 January a ‘Shilanyas’ or foundation stone laying ceremony took place on the site of Chapman Taylor’s office and residential tower project in Mumbai.

In the speech given by Shri. N.B. Singh, IRS, Chairman of the Indian Tax Authorities, he described our scheme as ‘beautifully conceived’.

The site is one of the most significant in India, being the last waterfront plot in Nariman Point in central Mumbai. This is the principal commercial area in the country and has the highest office rents per sq ft in the world.

Planning permission has been sought for two schemes. Phase one is a 13 storey building containing office, convention and hospitality facilities. This has an abstracted ‘nautical’ appearance made up of a series of repeated bow-shaped arches.

Phase two assumes we can obtain a higher allowable buildable area resulting in a 35 storey tower containing residential accommodation above the office and convention podium. The apartments have been oriented to maximise the sea views, and their balconies are wrapped in an open eco-façade containing shading and solar-energy panels. It is likely that this option will proceed.

The event has had extensive coverage in the Indian newspapers and has been featured by the television channels Star TV, NDTV, Sahara TV and Zee Business.

The architectural office selected a palette of materials drawn from India’s rich maritime history; Indian Teak wood, and brass. On the main level, the design challenge was to make a low-height and very long space feel fresh and exciting.

Mumbai’s suburban railway system carries over seven million passengers daily and is one of the busiest commuter rail networks in the world. The overground railway lines that cut through the city, form quite literally the framework upon which the city has been built over the years.
