Mayfair estate agent Wetherell has been appointed by Indian luxury property developer Lodha Group to be the official London sales partner for the 1,450 ft high (442 metre high) World One Tower in Mumbai, marketing the world’s tallest residential skyscraper to Indian super-rich buyers based in London.
Designed by international architects Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the 117 storey high £205 million World One Tower is located in the Worli district of South Mumbai, overlooking the Arabian sea. Worli is a leafy downtown suburb where during the days of the Raj the British administrators had their luxury villas and bungalows.
Once complete in 2016, the World One Tower will be the world’s tallest residential skyscraper providing over 1.2 million square feet of luxury accommodation including over 300 super-luxury apartments and penthouses, a large indoor leisure complex with indoor swimming pools, gymnasium and spa, and a cricket and sports club with cricket pitches, pavilion and club house.
Eighteen high speed lifts will take passengers from gound to top floor at a rate of 8 metres per second, speeds equivalent to the super-fast lifts in the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai and the Baltimore Tower in London.
The luxurious one, two, three and four bedroom apartments will have interiors designed by Armani Casa, the luxurious homewear brand of leading international designer Giorgio Armani. The Armani interiors brand is known for its sophistication, understated style and state-of-the-art home automation. The brands signature colours are white gold leaf, metallic silver and cream, with features including bespoke fabrics, special wall finishes, wenge wood, mirrored doors, tinted glass and marble bathrooms.
Like the 5-star Armani Hotels in Milan and Dubai, Armani residences are typically highly advanced with comfort cooling, state of the art home entertainment and security and electronic windows, curtains and blinds.
