What do you do when you have more money than you can spend? Well, if you’re Indian Billionaire, Mukesh Ambani, you build a huge house called Antilla and have everyone hate it because they are hungry and dying.
Ambani lives in Mumbai, India where people, as a rule, don’t have a ton of money. In fact, you could call most people who live there… poor.
So, what to do in this situation? Oh, I don’t know, why not just build a disgustingly HUGE building and spit on poor people from your penthouse?
Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani, 53, says he plans to move his wife, three children and mother into his new $1.9 billion, 400,000-square-foot mansion later this month. The bizarre, Lego-like structure, named Antilla, rises 570 feet above Mumbai — a city generally lacking in skyscrapers — and locals are calling it an “eyesore.” Via NY Daily News
The building’s odd shape is derived from a demand by Ambani — whose estimated worth is $27 billion — that each story be made using different plans and materials, with styles and architectural elements tying it all together.
I give this… oh… two weeks before locals knock it down. Wait, are they non-violent in India still?
