Developer D B Hospitality is aiming to make its under-construction India Tower project one of the most environmentally friendly in India.

The firm is seeking Gold status for the project under the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. Designed to have minimal impact on the environment, a range of sustainable solutions will be integrated into the tower, including green roofs, solar shading, natural ventilation and rainwater harvesting. The use of daylight will also be maximised.

Construction of the 60-storey mixed-use tower began in July 2007. Located in South Mumbai, it will include a hotel, restaurants, shops and residential apartments.

India Tower was designed by FXFowle Architects; Buro Happold is the structural and MEP engineer for the project. India Tower is scheduled for completion in 2010.
