Ambani's 27-storey, 400,000-square-foot Antilia, named after a mythical island in the Atlantic, tops the list with a value of over $1 billion. "The title of the most outrageously-expensive property in the world still belongs to Mukesh Ambani's Antilia in Mumbai," Forbes said. The house has six storeys of underground parking, three helicopter pads, and reportedly requires a staff of 600 for upkeep. The Business Standard article compares it with other buildings:
"Putting Antilia's scale and cost into perspective, Forbes compared it to '7, World Trade Center', a 52-storey tower that stands near Ground Zero in Manhattan with 1.7 million square feet of office space, reportedly built for $2 billion."
The amount of money spent apart, the first look at Antilla makes one wonder why would one spend so much money to build something so ugly?"
