Ambanis' Antilla

I rarely trust the Indian media as they typically report rumors as factual. Indian newspapers have been talking about Mukesh Ambani’s new residence and the story is being picked up by the international media. Mukesh is indeed building a monster mansion on Altamount Road, I just can’t imagine it’s going to be 570ft (typical of a 60 story but this building will have only 27 floors) and estimated at USD 1 billion dollars – that figure is definitely way off. His place is going to be called Antilla.

Between the two brothers Anil has always been more flashier and not so business focused. So it’s surprising to see Mukesh build such a massive home and not Anil.

“…The first six floors which have come up will be reserved for parking alone, and that too for cars belonging only to Mukesh’s family. Space for a total of 168 ‘imported’ cars has been earmarked here.”

Dude, where’s my car?

Update – I walked by the construction site last weekend and took a couple pictures.  I’ll be taking more as the construction continues, even though they have “Photography Prohibited” signs posted – hello it’s on a public road.
