Mumbai may be the future home of the world's tallest building.

Dubai holds the current record for having the world’s tallest building with the Burj Khalifa standing at 2,717 feet and 163 stories — but India is coming for that title. India’s minister for road transport and highways, Nitin Gadkari, wants to beautify Mumbai with “a green, smart road, three times bigger than the Marine Drive” and a “historic landmark bigger than Burj Khalifa.”

The plans for this project have not been approved yet, but if they are the building will be a space for offices, commercial use, businesses, and entertainment in Mumbai’s seaport. However, the people of India are not as thrilled about this as you may think.


Many have taken to Twitter to complain about this competition for the world’s tallest building when most of the country is still in need of basic necessities like food, water, and shelter.
