The Imperial is a twin-tower residential skyscraper complex in Mumbai, India that are the tallest completed buildings in the country. The towers are located at the sea front in Tardeo, South Mumbai. Construction was completed and the towers were inaugurated in 2010.
The Imperial is located in Tardeo, Mumbai. Imperial Towers, designed by Mumbai architect Hafeez Contractor as his most recognizable project to date, were designed as Mumbai’s tallest towers.The Imperial Twin Towers are built on former slum land where the current re-development model of builders providing free land and rehabilitation to slum dwellers in exchange for rights for property development, was first put into practice on a big scale. This model was used for slum and mill land redevelopment across the city, and across India as a whole.
A private observation deck is present at the top of each building by the cone spires. It is not open to the general public, contrary to popular belief.
