    How is this for a home?

    India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, is about to welcome his closest friends to his $1-billion Mumbai home that is billed as the most expensive in history, anywhere. The building, seven years in the making, is 400,000 square feet on 27 floors, all for a family of six.

    Just goes to show, money can't buy taste. That has to be the ugliest non industrial building I have ever seen.

    It sure is. I found the shots of the slums with the house towering over very interesting.

    I've been to Mumbai. If I was going to build a billion dollar home, it sure as hell wouldn't be there.

    That is one ugly structure, house or not.

    I highly doubt it actually cost $1billion based on materials and labor costs in India. If it did, he got ripped off.

    I bet the smells that loft up to that structure are gastly.

    Looks like it fits in well with the neighborhood... kind of a slum stood on end

    Thats the dumbest thing I have ever seen....

    I guess the line from the movie wall street is true. A fool and his money were lucky to get together in the first place.
