Mukesh Ambani’s Antilia
Mukesh Ambani is the wealthiest man in India and the sixth richest man globally. Antilia is a 27-story, $2 Billion house for six people in downtown South Mumbai. The skyscraper sits on 48,000 square feet of land, is 550 ft tall, and has over 400,000 square feet of living space. All six lower floors are dedicated to parking and can hold 168 cars. Then the lobby is above the parking and has nine high-speed elevators.
The skyscraper has a helipad on its roof with its own air traffic control facility. There are multiple swimming pools, a theater, a spa, a yoga studio, and four floors of hanging gardens for its eco-friendly status. The most disturbing part of this house is that it is in the most poverty-laden area of India, where more than half of its residents live on $2 per day. Antilia looms over an overcrowded slum.
