Wow! World’s fifth richest man, Mukesh Ambani is again in news for building world’s most expensive residence. Whilst in January ABC news revealed that the house would be worth $1 billion but now figures seem to have turned two-fold. This Mumbai-based petrochemical mogul of Reliance Industries is fortunate to have a floating wealth of $46 billion.
He is hoping that the completion of four-year construction of “Antilla” by coming January would tag world’s most expensive adobe to his name, thereby beating the lifestyle of billionaires like Warren Buffet who reside in reserved lodging. If you don’t know then this 27-story Mumbai Tower is positioned 550 feet into the sky with a bizarre 400,000 sq ft of internal space costing a total of $2 billion.
Some insights into the internal geography of the estate: With no two floors alike. Ambani wishes to have each floor developed using different blueprint, material, style and unique architectural essentials. In addition, the peculiar shape of the formation is the out result of his belief in Vaastu. At technical front, the lobby endows entrée to the home via nine elevators, and the detailed crystal-packed ballroom features mounted LCD monitors, a giant sound system and a retractable cabinet for artworks. It would also feature the wonderful feel of ice sauna inviting all family and guests to burn the heat away by bathing in a room filled with man-made snow. Also, the unusual home theater is another aspect worth noticing.
