ScenarioEdit

Mangalore has been making rapid progress in the real estate industry, especially when it comes to tall and luxurious buildings. Contrary to the all-Indian trend of skyscrapers coming up only in highly populated Metropolitan cities (the NCR being an exception), this not-so-populous city in Karnataka also seems to have jumped into the fray. Mangalore has about 20 completed buildings taller than 20 floors. Around 15 more are under construction, and many more are in the pipeline. The skyline of the city has undergone many changes in the past decade, and is all set to change drastically in the coming years.

Bhandary Vertica (56 storeys) and Westline Signature (53 storeys), two under construction skyscrapers in Kadri and Nanthoor, in the city, respectively, are poised to be one of the tallest towers in South India. Most of the present highrises in the city are concentrated around the CBD and also in the Kadri-Bejai region. Even Pumpwell is projected to be the future skyscraper hub of Mangalore. In addition to the three towers of 32 storeys each in an ongoing project, three more buildings around Pumpwell with over 30 floors are being planned by various builders. Henceforth, the Kadri-Bejai-Pumpwell belt is poised to be the future "Manhattan of Mangalore". Many more highrises are also planned. The present skyline of Mangalore is extensively likened to that of Mumbai in the 1980s.

Another interesting fact about the highrises of Mangalore is that all buildings with 18 or more floors (or 60 or more meters in height) have a helipad, complying with the safety norms set by the local administration. However, the building K2 (with 20 floors) does not have a helipad, since it was constructed before this rule was formed.
