World One is a supertall residential skyscraper under construction in Mumbai, India. On completion in 2016, it will claim the title of the world’s tallest residential tower, delivering 300 homes. Though bookings for residences at World One closed in Mumbai in December 2014, the world’s tallest residential tower is opening up the sale for its luxury apartments in London. Developed by Lodha Group, India’s largest real estate developer, the lavish apartments and penthouses will start at 2.15 million (£1.4 million). Boasting of interiors designed by fashion brand, Giorgio Armani and spreading over 117 floors, the three and four-bedroom apartments on the upper floors will offer panoramic views of Mumbai and the Arabian Sea.
The residences will be dotted with other features like comfort cooling, state-of-the-art home entertainment and security and electronic windows, curtains and blinds. Apart from the gym and spa, World One Tower also includes a cricket pitch with pavilion and club house for leisure and entertainment. The penthouses at the top of the 1,450ft sky scraper is devised by architects Pei Cobb Freed and Partners.
Telegraph reports that the developers are targeting the wealthy Mayfair residents and London estate agent, Wetherell Estates, has been appointed to sell the homes. Peter Wetherell, managing director of Wetherell Estates said that he plans to “tap into” the wealthy Indian community in Mayfair and channel wealth back into Mumbai.
