Bangalore gets a slice of New York

Bangalore: Private developers are all set to bring in a slice of New York into the garden city of Bangalore. A whole league of sky scrappers and multi-towered complexes are being built by private developers and corporates giants in Bangalore—something that will perhaps define its future look.

Multi tower complex UB Towers, Vijay Mallya's pet project is being built on the lines of New York’s empire state building in the heart of Bangalore. The sky scrapper looks down on almost half the city.

"The skyline or the elevation of this project is modelled much like the empire state building of New York. The height of UB Tower is 126 metres which would make it the tallest building in the city," said CEO, UB Global V Shashikanth.

The fast paced development coupled with skyrocketing real estate prices make Bangalore a dream destination for corporate developers. But it wasn’t so long ago when just 100 metres tall Public Utility building used to be the only sky scrapper in the city.

Besides UB Towers there is another multi-storied complex, constructed on the lines of Dubai's Al Burj hotel and Lakeside Habitat, the city's tallest residential building of 25 floors built by the Bearys Group that will be ready for occupation in next three-months.

"We are projecting Lakeside habitat as a welcome arch to the new Bangalore," Managing Director, Bearys Group Syed Beary said.

So do we expect Bangalore to become India’s New York? Given that the builders are upbeat about recreating a Petronas towers or perhaps Dubai’s Al Burj hotel in the city.

"People do compare our upcoming buildings with Petronas Twin Towers. But we don't want to compare them with any world-class building. We are going in for a 45-storey building, an IT park and a corporate tower next," Syed Beary said.

Bangalore's former chief minister S M Krishna had once said he wanted Bangalore to be like Singapore in terms of infrastructure and amenities. Today with sky scrappers kissing its skies, the city is on its way to realizing that dream.Bangalore gets a slice of New York
