When we see big cities across the world, most of the cities have skyscrapers in the heart of the city. But being one of big metropolitan cities in India, Hyderabad doesn’t have even a single skyscraper in the city center. This diminished the Hyderabad city center’s charm. Now, the new Telangana government is focusing on City center and the Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao has announced to build 40 skyscrapers in the heart of city i.e., around Hussain Sagar.
Skyscrapers including world’s tallest tower
- Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao on 22 Nov 2014 has announced that the state government has decided to build the world’s largest tower and other skyscrapers at 40 locations in Hyderabad. For the same, 100acres of land around Hussain Sagar Lake in the heart of Hyderabad will be utilized.
- The government is planning to build tower taller than Burj Khalifa (Dubai- 828 metres, 163 floors) at Sanjeevaiah Park in Hyderabad.
- Skyscrapers would be built beyond the full tank level (FTL) of the lake and in compliance with the Supreme Court judgment and other environmental norms. The proposed minimum height of the other buildings would accommodate 75 floors in them
- 19 out of 40 locations identified by the government are:
- Buddha Bhavan
