42 Chowringhee is now the tallest building in India. The building, which was completed earlier in April, contains 65 floors and stands an impresive 268 metres. The building beats The Imperial in south Mumbai, claiming the ‘tallest building’ tag in India.
“It would have been the second-tallest had the additional four floors that were later sanctioned not been constructed,” pointed out A N Shroff of Alcove Realty, one of the three companies that formed a consortium to develop the ultra- premium residential project.
With the completion of this project, the sky-line of kolkatta has changed dramatically.
