The 27-storey Antilla tower

Cant help but think this is the most retarded waste of money like...ever

(said in true jessie pinkman tone)

seriously.....!

1 billion dollars on a hideous building in mombai that looks like it will collapse at a moments notice..

whats more...

"the Ambani family are concerned that spending the night there will bring them bad luck, as the building's design falls foul of vastu shastra, an ancient Hindu architectural doctrine."

oh dear...

in other words the hindu doctrine says building a hideous monstrosity in the heart of a crowded city with helipads is a no no.. could mr $$$$ not have thought of this in the first place.

I think it looks pretty cool. Pity it's built in a shithole like Mumbai though.

I have no idea who the ambani family are, and I also dont know why I should even care about some building being built.
