That is an artist rendering of Antilia, what is going to be the business center slash private residence of India’s richest person, business tycoon Mukesh Ambani. Ambani plans to house both his business and his family in the Antilia structure on 27 floors. Included will be six levels of parking with 168 parking spaces, four floors of livable space, a movie theater, two “health” floors complete with a gym and swimming pool, a couple of two story apartments for guest, and three helipads. Plus its looking like this is pretty much going to be a green building too. This is actually going to be quite a structure when its done. The building when it is complete will be serviced by 600 full time staffers. I think Ambani will be taking the no.1 spot in the, Most Expensive Cribs Edition on MTV since the total bill for this is going to be about $1b. The beauty of it is that his business will be right downstairs, so he really wont ever be late for work either.

A great story in Portfolio about the rich vs. poor dichotomy in India and how possibly this is stepping a little bit too far.
