GROWING SKYLINE LACKS GREEN TOUCH

And while the demand for high rises have gone up builders have failed to incorporate environmentally conscious models into their projects to ease the burden on Mumbai’s already creaking infrastructure. Barely a handful of the 149 high-rise projects cleared by a state-appointed committee over the past five-and-a-half years have included facilities like solar power, solar heating, windmills, rainwater harvesting or vermin-composting. The high-rise committee had been set up because of the surge in projects a few years ago and concerns about the effect this could have on the environment and infrastructure. Many developers who gave the panel proposals had not even accounted for inadequate water supply in the area, sources said. No clear plans were submitted on how any shortfall would be met. Looks like the developers are only interested in scaling greater heights without thinking about more meaningful issues, such as global warming and environmental degradation.
