Ahmedabad's tallest buildings
On the western bank of Sabarmati riverfront, buildings with a height of 92.4m above ground are set to change the city's skyline. Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has planned to build the tallest buildings for which pre-bid meetings were held. These will come up on the western bank between Tagore Hall and the Event Centre. There is a plan for three buildings on the western side and five on the eastern bank of the riverfront. Its tallest building will house 22 floors -- with each floor being 4.2m high. The AMC had invited expressions of interest for three buildings from developers in the recent past. A total of 28 firms, including an educational institute, are competing in the final financial bid process being held shortly. Nearly 40% firms have shown interest in building a residential project, while 30% have shown interest in constructing a commercial project. Another 30% have exhibited a preference for a residential-cum-commercial project. Municipal commissioner Mukesh Kumar informed that SRFDCL has permitted buildings with floor space index (FSI) of up to 17, depending on the size of the plot. The tallest building will be 92.4 m which will be taller than the city's SVP hospital. The building will house 22 floors and each floor will be 4.2m high leaving enough space for utilities like air conditioning ducts, electric wiring and ventilation to be installed along with the ceiling.
