SURAT: It's a towering idea that promises to take the Diamond City to new heights. If this ambitious plan by a Mumbai-based builder sees the light of the day, one would not have to fly all the way to Dubai to see the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building

Harihara Mahapatra, a Mumbai-based real estate developer, has shown interest in constructing a 1.2 km tall tower, what he claims would be the world's tallest. Mahapatra has proposed the tower in the upcoming Dream City project at Khajod. Constructing the building would require an investment of about Rs 1,200 crore. His firm has sought an area of 1 sq km. 

After the discussion with Surat collector Rajender Kumar, the proposal was forwarded to Gujarat Infrastructure Development Board (GIDB). Kumar told TOI, "The company is planning to create this iconic structure through new patented technology." 

"It is an ambitious project that requires clearances from number of agencies like Airport Authority of India and others," said a top government official. 

When contacted, Mahapatra refused to divulge any details.
