MUMBAI: As many as 106 skyscrapers rising 200 metres or above were completed across the world in 2015, setting a new global record for tall building construction, says the latest Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) report.
The 54-storey Ahuja Towers (249m) at Worli came in at 36 on the list of tallest buildings built last year. The tallest was Shanghai Tower, now the tallest (128 floors) building in China, and the second-tallest in the world at 632m.The second-tallest building completed in 2015 was 432 Park Avenue in New York City, becoming the world's tallest all-residential building (426m and 85 floors) and the 100th supertall tower.

Do the Fire Brigade has adequate infra structure if there is a fire on the 80th floor. Sachivalaya was 4 story building and a fire resulted in death of two or more people.
Zero planning, just constructing has made it congested. Adding to the woes is the poor infrastructure.
Better roads, drainage system, slum free city, toll free city, cleanliness, parking facility, recreation facilities, faster public transport, etc. This is what we need in Mumbai. There is lot of space in and around Mumbai, no need of skyscrapers.
A populous country like India has only one option and that is to build more and more high rise buildings to accommodate more people just like in Japan, Singapore, etc.
But is infrastructure keeping pace - NO
