Mukesh Ambani, heralded as the wealthiest individual in Asia with a massive fortune of $113 billion, possesses an array of the world’s most extravagant properties.

A prized jewel among his real estate portfolio is his Mumbai abode, named Antilia, which ranks amongst the planet’s priciest domiciles.

Yet, the pertinent question arises: does its value exceed even that of the tallest edifice on earth, Dubai’s famed Burj Khalifa?

Antilia’s Grandeur

Perched on Mumbai’s esteemed Altamount Road, known for its affluent inhabitants, Antilia reaches an impressive 568 ft into the sky.

This magnificent structure boasts 27 floors, with the uppermost six providing a private haven for the Reliance Industries magnate’s family: his spouse Nita, their progeny Akash and Anant, Akash’s partner Shloka, and their young ones, Prithvi and Veda.

Commissioned to two American architectural firms, the opulent tower rose between 2004 and 2010, with a staggering investment of INR 15,000 crore, as per reports by DNA India.

Comparing the Burj Khalifa

Standing tall at an awe-inspiring 2,716 ft, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is a marvel with 163 floors hosting an array of offices, residential suites, and leisure facilities.

This architectural wonder also saw its inception between 2004 and 2010, courtesy of a South Korean construction company.

As noted by DNA India, the cost of bringing this skyscraper to life was about $1.5 billion, equating to over INR 12,000 crore in current figures.

Surprisingly, despite its stature as the globe’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa was erected with a budget notably less than that of Ambani’s towering Antilia residence.
