Leighton Asia, a subsidiary of Australia’s Cimic Group, has won a $100m contract to construct a high-rise residential project in Mumbai.
The Aga Hall Estate scheme involves building two towers, 45 and 56 storeys in height. The work will include three basements and five podiums across a 1.8ha site, with a total floor area of 153,700 sq m.
The project is being developed by the Prince Aly Khan Hospital Charitable Trust, which began as a community housing initiative and hospital.
According to the trust, the development will offer 387 apartments “of an international standard” on Nesbit Road in the south of the city.
Leighton Asia said construction was scheduled to start in January and be finished in 2026.
The win comes shortly after Leighton Asia was selected to construct another high-rise project in the Birla Niyaara district of central Mumbai (see further reading).
That deal, a mixed-use development for Century Estates was worth $85m and consisted of 70- and 72-storey towers on a 6.6ha site with a lettable area of 273,000 sq m. Construction began in September and is scheduled to complete in mid-2027.
