Sorry to join in so late into this thread but have you guys seen the insides of the Goa beach house of Vijay Mallya? CNN recently did a programme on it. It's obscene but in a very tasteful way !!! The Ambani skyscrapper is plain obscene and just that.

lucky that he dint have to go his brother's way by losing some 3200 crores during the same period!!

Default Just curious

Will he be giving out any portion on rent? How much rent is he expecting, any idea? Which area is this house being built in? Any schools and amy subji mandi nearby? How far is the nearest local suburban train station to this place? You know, accessibility shouldn't be a problem.

Helicopter is ok, Akshay. But I feel the fuel bill for it my be a little tight. Moreover, if I have to go to the 'next door' barber for a haircut, where will I park the chopper?

Harry, the rent is ok, but if he going to ask for a deposit like all other Bombayites do, that might be an issue.

I am kidding, but Ambani started it, right?

Travelwriter,

There is a subji mandi right across the road. Literally 10 meters from his front door.

Railway stations, well, grant road station is walkable - 10min walk.

Barber about 300meters down the road, and another one 75meters further. (we're talking Rs80 haircuts here, so fairly affordable).

But yes, deposit might make you bankrupt

cya

I was talking about just one room and not the floors
Yeah deposit can be an issue but the Ambani's are always ready for negotiations so you can definitely try your luck

If they do what they do to their companies, then the story will be something like this:

Initial Private Offering: 30 floors, 300 rooms, 100 car parking, 10 helipads etc.

One or Two Years down the line: There will be some mergers. 2 floors each will be combined to form a extra roomy floor, 10 rooms each will be combined to make one big room and the helipads merged to make way for a mini-runway. This will improve the looks and efficiency and increase the value of the floors/rooms etc.

Again two years down the line: Every floor will be split to make 3 floors, every room will be split to make 25 rooms etc. This will be done to unlock the hidden value of the floors/rooms etc.

And the merger, reverse merger stories will continue happily thereafter.

Looks a bit of an eyesore. Why spend all that money on something that looks just like an office block ?
