Just kidding...about Al Gore but not about the 60-story home. His name is Mukesh Ambani and he is the richest man in India. He is planning on building a 60-story home for his family in the heart of Mumbai. The monstrosity will feature a helipad, health club, hanging gardens, six floors of parking and 600 live-in staff. I guess it was only a matter of time before the Ambani family outgrew their current home...a 14-story building named Sea Wind. Mr. Ambani was ranked 14th on the 2007 Forbes' richest worldwide rankings list with a net worth of around US$20.1 billion. Since the ceilings are 3x as high as a normal buildings, the tower will only have 27 floors. I am interested in seeing pictures on this one...I don't even know why someone would build such a thing. This blows extravagance so far out of the water its not even an issue.
