Billion Dollar Home

The world’s first billion-dollar home, is currently under construction for petrochemical tycoon Mukesh Ambani, his wife, and two children. The home will be a 27-story skyscraper in downtown Mumbai, with the first six floors dedicated to parking, the living quarters begin at a lobby with nine elevators, as well as several storage rooms and lounges. Down dual stairways with silver-covered railings is a large ballroom with 80% of its ceiling covered in crystal chandeliers. It features a retractable showcase for pieces of art, a mount of LCD monitors and embedded speakers, as well as stages for entertainment. The hall opens to an indoor/outdoor bar, green rooms, powder rooms and allows access to a nearby “entourage room” for security guards and assistants. The top floors are dedicated to entertaining, where Ambani plans s to host business guests and offer panoramic views of the Arabian Sea.

This is an awesome display of capitalism in over drive. The worlds most expensive home, towering in the country of India where a large percentage of its residents live in abject poverty.
