The world’s first Billion Dollar Home

Forbes magazine showed a stunning picture in their new May 19, 2008 edition. It is a home in Mumbai, India built by Mukesh Ambani. You’ve never seen a home like this before . . . 27 stories (down from the original plan of 45 stories), 400,000 square feet – no, that’s not a typo – and a cost overrun from the original plan of $1 billion that is now approachinggetting near $2 billion according to Forbes. Can he afford it? Forbes ranks him the 5th richest man in the world at $43 billion. I guess the house is chump change for him. You can see the pictures here.
