i am new in posting and starting a thread in ATS, however i have been following the website for many years now...basically you can call me affe, i am
from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. this morning, i have received an email from a friend about an indian billionaire, whose wealth comes from petrochemical
i thought it is appropriate to post this in this forum, since we are discussing about global financial crisis, and it is worth to mention that there
are people who reap in tonnes and tonnes of wealth..
this house is call Antilla, where it is being build in India, where most of the people in india is being deprived of the basic necessities and
care..while some of the richest are building massive castle for 5 person.. and it will be ready in Jan 2009
read more from the link
Mukesh Ambanis - Antilla
"Thought it will be interesting to cover the house being constructed in Mumbai’s Altamount Road by the world’s richest man – Mukesh Ambani.
Yep, he’s officially the richest now with the skyrocketing share prices of RIL. The house (called Antilla) is being valued at Rupees 4000 crores and
will be 173 metres tall. Normally that is the equivalent of a 60 storeyed tower, but in this case each floor is more than twice the height of a normal
floor, with the result that the building will only have 27 floors when completed. Given the prevailing state of skyscrapers in Mumbai, this building
will be more than twice as tall as the earlier tallest buiilding. The view from the top will be breathtaking, no doubt. Some other absurd facts about
this ‘house’.. 3 helipads on top. Mumbai corporation has not given permission for making this operational yet. Hanging gardens within the
structure Swimming pool within the structure A two storey Health centre Parking space for 168 cars (6 floors). I initially thought that meant there
will be a mini office in the building but apparently that is not the case. All these cars will belong to Mukesh Ambani! Just in case you are
interested, he drives a 5 crore Maybach now. A floor exclusively for servicing these automobiles within the building. A floor for Home theatre –
sitting capacity of 50 Most absurd of all, the house will have a staff of 600 (sic) to do the maintenance activities. That gives a ratio of 1:100 for
people living in the house and those who are paid to take care of it. The six lucky (?) ones are the man himself, his wife, his 3 children and his
mother Kokilaben. The family will be moving in from their old home ‘Sea Wind’ which was a 14 floor building at Cuffe Parade."
i will post some of the pictures of the house soon
