The Leela Mumbai


The high demand for settlement in the urban areas and a dearth of land space has resulted in the emergence of vertical cities to accommodate the high influx of population. India is home to some of the tallest buildings in the world. Tall buildings are the dominating symbols of the skylines of modern cities and are becoming increasingly man-made marvels. With every passing decade, the height of buildings has been increasing exponentially; technological advances are being incorporated into building constructions and factors such as wind, gravity and earthquake resistance are being given greater importance.
Organizations and individuals have taken it upon their shoulders to find the most innovative and effective ways to shape up the Indian skyline with their state-of-the-art, revolutionary projects in the high-rise construction sector.
The prestigious High-Rise Awards returns in 2019 to recognise and acknowledge such outstanding contribution by these trailblazing architects, designers, engineers, consultants and visionaries, whose inspiring and memorable designs and structures play a major role in the ‘Evolution of the Indian Skyline’.
HRIS Awards highlights and recognizes remarkable projects in terms of design, safety, innovation, sustainability, architecture and other elements.
