Skyscrappers in Hyderabad

WOW ! is all one can say of the ambitious plan of Lanco group to build 90 storied building in Hyderabad with an investment of Rs. 5,500 cr. Last heard all the residential space has been sold out, here is how it shall look like when completed.


When I say WOW Iam just awed by the feeling of the skyscrapper who doesnt ? Atleast Iam! But at the same time in a country like India what would be the socio-economic implicatons of such a massive structure ? Will it broaden the alreaden deepening diisions and make us a divided society of haves and havenots ? Or will it just pave way for more such buildings where in no one will be on the ground but in the air ? Well cant say for my sparrow mind its the former that is visible and call me cynic ! I am well one of those who wouldnt want to forego traditions and happiness for technology and GDP.

A sector-specific Special Economic Zone for Information Technology (IT) and IT-enabled services (ITES) will be set up over 25-acres in Manikonda village, Rajendranagar Mandal of Ranga Reddy district.

The work on this high-rise edifice is being taken up by LANCO as part of the LANCO Hills Technology Park Private Limited, a real estate venture on the sprawling 100 acres land at Manikonda. Apart from the majestic residential complex “Signature Towers,” an IT Park and commercial establishments, including 16 multiplexes and clubhouses, food joints and many more will come up.

Currently the dash for high rise structures is so intense that at least 75 of them are slated to sprout in the city over the next 18-24 months all within a radius of 10-12 kilometres of the technolopolis of Cyberabad.

And if you are curious of whats and wheres of the tallest in the world here is something thats for you. Its just that the human mind is always fancied with big bigger and biggest and its but natural what is unnatural is the irresponsible application of such technology like for example the industrialisation and the fusions and fissions. Will a 1000 Live Earth concerts bring back the Global ecology that is destroyed in the name of development. The Amazon forests, the Suezs, the Ganges, the chernobyls, the Yangtze river and the three gorges dam and do we hope the list to slow down witout concrete action ?

    Los Angeles is full of skyscrapers. Would the city be more beautiful without them? Probably. What do they accomplish? They make developers rich because they could charge vastly more rents for each square measure of ground. Do I want to make developers rich? No!

    nice to c u here, TY
    I am not against Skyscrappers JIM but the need of it is questionable. In places like mumbai where there is need for more living spaces and ongestion of land its understandable, or in Japan and hongkong for that matter any of those cities or countries that face serious crunch of spaces. But why hyderabad.

    wow…I love the idea off this needlepoint skyscraper in India, it makes a statement… I understand the soci-econmic impact and I appreciate you for this well-thought of blog… I still can’t decide which side I should take… I mean for an elephant his useless teathes- his 2 beautiful ivory teethes.. are important to some extent… everything is not utilitarian, but to put india on the world map..its very important.
