The country’s tallest commercial building is all set to come up at Dadar. Kohinoor Group’s landmark Kohinoor Square, a 203-metre tall building, which is currently in the last phase of construction, has bagged the coveted title. The 52-storey diamond shaped iconic tower is strategically positioned at the crossroads of the East-West and North-South axis, at the very heart of the city.
The tallest commercial edifice in town offers panoramic views of South Mumbai, the Arabian Sea, the Northern Suburbs and the Eastern Port. The Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats (CTBUH) has certified Kohinoor Square as the tallest commercial tower in India as per their database dated October 31, 2012. The CTBUH is internationally known as the arbiter of the criteria, upon which tall building height is measured. With the second best tower way behind at 187 metres, Kohinoor Square is clearly a landmark for the financial capital of India.
Kohinoor Square is the only mixed used development project in Mumbai, offering 40 floors of commercial space, 50,000 sq. ft. of retail space and about 64 residential apartment spaces.
Envisaged by Gkkworks (USA) and SSA Architects, Kohinoor Square ensures sustainable development through Gold LEED rating. The unique structure also incorporates a flagship luxury hotel which rests atop its commercial tower.
Targeting HNIs and big business enterprises, the Kohinoor Square is devised to offer a heady mix of luxury offices, high street galleria, magnificent residences, gourmet food and dinning spaces, at the most strategic location in Mumbai.
“Kohinoor Square enjoys the strategic location with proximity to Dadar railway station and is close to western and eastern expressways. So, apart from being accessible to people travelling by train, it is also close to the Bandra-Worli sea link and both the expressways,” said Mr. Nathan Andrews, Chief Marketing Officer, Kohinoor Square.
The building will also have several other features to facilitate a large number of employees. There will be 48 high-speed elevators along with 12 escalators; a car parking that can accommodate over 2000 vehicles with efficient driveways along with an intelligent traffic management system, a spacious lobby, double height landscaped Sky Gardens and double height Terraces with floor to ceiling glazing on every alternate floor to act as tranquil and refreshing breakout zones.
“In order to have a green building and reduce our energy consumption by over 25 per cent, we have used double glazed reflective glass facades, which restrict the energy from coming in, but let in natural light, thereby reducing consumption of electricity,” said Mr. Andrews.
