India to build 62-story comfortable skyscraper for Navy officers

25

In the south of Mumbai, by the end of 2026, they plan to build a 62-storey skyscraper, which will house 220 Indian Navy officers who serve at the Nagar (Colaba) base. This is reported by the Indian media with reference to the tender published by the Indian Ministry of Defense.


The start of work on the construction of the tallest building in the country for the needs of the military department should begin in August-September of this year. The project, which is estimated at 270 million rupees, according to the plan, will take 4 years.

The Indian Ministry of Defense reports that 62 Navy officers, from lieutenants to senior commanders, with their families, will be able to get housing in a 220-story comfortable skyscraper. This project aims to solve two problems at once. First, to provide family servicemen with housing. Secondly, to organize the permanent presence of naval officers in the immediate vicinity of the naval base.

According to the project, on each floor of the building there are 4 three-room apartments, each with a servant's room. For India, the presence of servants for the families of officers is a common thing, given the caste system in society. In addition, the facility includes a two-level lobby with a waiting area, high-speed elevators with enhanced safety features, a modern fire extinguishing system and parking for 252 cars.

The new building for the Ministry of Defense will be erected in one of the most expensive areas of India. The decision in favor of the high-rise was made due to the lack of land in the south of Mumbai.

        If the Indians have tension with the land, they could learn from Russia, which also has tension with the land, so in St. Petersburg, right in front of Vasilievsky Island, in the Gulf of Finland, they filled up the shallows and built it up with housing for tens of thousands of people.

        Estimate what scale against the background of the Indian project.
        Well, what to do if Russia is so small (irony).

      Aren't they afraid that a potential enemy will suddenly turn this "wonderful" skyscraper into a fraternal sarcophagus?

      No conclusion is drawn from the experience of the Sumerians when tens and hundreds of military personnel are destroyed by a single missile strike on a building.

        They were not the first to come up with purpose-built construction for naval officers. Back in 1976, 2 nine-story houses were built for the o / s and m-news of the TAKR Kyiv in Severomorsk: one for the families of shipbuilders, the second for pilots and technicians of 279 OKShAP. They planned an attraction of unprecedented generosity: with the arrival of the ship at the base, a rally with the distribution of "elephants", in the sense of keys. But the homeless wives of o/s and ministries 7 OPESK found out about this... and the situation became slippery with the prospect of getting out of control altogether. And besides, the release of TAKRA was delayed. Therefore, away from sin, the apartments were distributed "according to conscience, rank and fat" ... And for the crew of the first AV cruiser they gave a five-story building on a hill at ul. Sasha Kovaleva 5. Maybe for the better. At least one diversion would not have put out of action a heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser.
        Indians don't seem to mind at all in this regard. With the Germans, naval officers lived in separate cottages in Koenigsberg, and went to work by train (or official cars - whoever is more significant) in Pillau. But this is a nation of warriors, not Brahmins. I suppose the Sindhis in India also do not bunch up, preferring security to comfort.

      On alarm, will they jump from the 30th to the 62nd floor with parachutes?

    Risky, one blow can bury everyone. It was not in vain that the Pentagon was built five-story, in the form of a pentagon.

      220 officers is a very small proportion of the entire command of the Indian Navy. And it is said that they will live there from lieutenants to senior commanders. And in India, admirals prefer to live in their own homes. So a hit on a building will not completely decapitate the Indian Navy.

        Yeah, think "only" two hundred officers, Indian women are still giving birth.

          And what do you think differently, the officers are settled in a separate house for each. In Rostov there is a microdistrict where several high-rise buildings are compactly completely populated by the military and there are not 220 families, but more.

        admirals do not fight, but plan and give guidance ... and it’s the lieutenants who are fighting ...

    220 families on 62 floors is an average of 3-4 apartments (I don't dare to call it a kvaktira) per floor. Given that such a tall building has a base area that is by no means like the entrance of a standard 9-18 storey building, then what kind of living space is there for a family ...

      You can be glad that this living space will go to the youngest - lieutenants, even if not all of them.
      In our latitudes, modern frame houses and a layout in the style of "one-story America" ​​would be an analogue - there are no problems with space or cheap wood in the wilderness, where they usually serve. Although they could build tropical-type bungalows there.
