Palais Royale is a 300 meter tall residential project located at the old Shree Ram Mill in the Worli area of Mumbai. This is a neighborhood on the ocean side of the city, and close to the south landing of the Bandra Worli Sea Link. This area is characterized by both traditionally low-income area with low-rise buildings. However, the recent development of residential skyscrapers in the area has triggered a process of gentrification.

It is the first supertall in India to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum rating for environmental sustainability.

The tower is positioned in the top end of the market. It has two basements, seven parking floors, three service floors and the rest are living areas. These will be positioned around a 200 meter tall atrium in the heart of the top 2/3rd of the tower, which on completion will be the largest atrium in the world.

The luxury building has 100 apartments with areas of 8,700 square feet and 14,000 square feet. With an octagonal shaped floor plate of 50,000 sq ft, the tower would house amenities like auditorium, spa, cricket pitch, tennis court, squash court and three swimming pools. It has 88 lakh square feet of total residential space. Special attention is being paid towards fire fighting and life saving during such emergencies. Specialists have been engaged to ensure that the sound level is kept to the bare minimum since the building is surrounded by municipal roads from three sides. The apartments have imposing floor to floor heights, thus increasing the grandeur.

The project involves over 30 international consultants. The architects working on it are M/s Talati Pantakhy Associates. Both the conceptual design and architectural layout were created based on the principles of Vastu Shastra by Dharnidhar Sharma.

Work at the Palais Royale, which was named after the Palace of Versailles in Paris, began almost two years ago. During the planning process, study was conducted to study the effect of wind on the building and the comfort level in the balconies. Also the effects of microwave radiation, originating from a nearby antenna, were assessed. The building will be cladded with Corian, which is a liquid marble produced by Dupont. Itís a lightweight material which is tested not be affected by acid rain, heat or sunlight.

The US$ 500 million project also has an ambitious sustainability program. Through the harvesting of rain water, 100% on-site sewage treatment, converting wet garbage into organic manure, recycling of remaining waste and heating of water through solar panels, to name a few, the project presents itself as the first LEED Platinum-rated skyscraper of Mumbai, as confirmed by the Indian Green Building Council. The building aims to save thirty to forty per cent on energy and twenty to thirty percent on water.
The Traffic and Parking study is being done by GMD Consultants. The kitchen design & consultancy is being done by HCTS, International company based in Dubai.
