印度巨富在摩天大楼上建了白宫

The Indian city of Bangalore is home to one of the most lavish, over-the-top luxury mansions in the world – a replica of the White House built atop a skyscraper.

印度城市班加罗尔拥有世界上耗资最巨大、最为奢华的豪宅之一:一座建造于摩天大楼顶部的白宫复制品。

Vijay Mallya, the chairman of United Breweries Group, has always been one of India’s most flamboyant tycoons, but in 2010, when he announced plans to have a mansion modelled after the White House built atop a luxury skyscraper in Bangalore, people thought it was too much, even for him. He didn’t let that deter him from building his dream home, and by 2016, his mansion atop Kingfisher Tower in the heart of Bangalore City was taking shape. Unfortunately, by that time his financial woes were the talk of India, and it wasn’t long before he fled the country for the UK, leaving his dream home unfinished.

虽然联合酿酒集团主席Vijay Mallya一直都是印度最耀眼的巨富之一,但在2010年,当他宣布计划在一栋位于班加罗尔的摩天大楼之上建造一座白宫复刻版豪宅之后,人们认为即使对他来说也是够呛。

Located on the 33rd and 34th floors of Kingfisher Tower, Mallya’s “sky mansion” covers an area of 40,000 square meters, and was supposed to include a wine cellar, indoor heated pool, outdoor infinity pool, gym, salon and spa, an a roof helipad,among other amenities, but it’s unclear how many were actually completed. The building himself looks finished from a distance, but a closer look reveals that the final details are missing.

但这并没有阻止他建造自己的梦想之家,到2016年时,他那位于班加罗尔市中心翠鸟塔(Kingfisher Tower)顶部的豪宅已经成型。不幸的是,那时他的财务困境成了印度的热议话题,不久之后他便逃去了英国,离开了尚未完工的梦想之家。

Mallya, the son of United Breweries Group founder Vittal Mallay, fled India in March 2016 as lenders and investigating agencies closed in on him, after he allegedly borrowed large sums of money and never paid it back. He has been disputing the charges ever since, and India has been trying to have him extradited from the UK. Mallya never got to live in his sky mansion, and if he is found guilty under the money laundering Act, it may be confiscated and sold to recover debts.

Mallya的“空中大厦”位于翠鸟塔的33层和34层,占地面积40000平方米,原本应包含一个酒窖、一个室内温水泳池、一个室外无边泳池、一个健身房、一个沙龙与水疗中心、一个屋顶直升机停机坪、以及其他设施,但尚不清楚实际完工了多少。虽然该建筑物从远处看貌似已经完工,但仔细观察可以发现缺少最终的细节。

“Under the money laundering Act, an order of conviction will result in confiscation of property by the government,” S.S. Naganand, senior counsel appearing for the lenders consortium, told Live Mint. “If money laundering is not proven, the debt remains and what will happen to this property is they (banks) will try to recover dues. There will be an attempt to sell off and recover dues and any sale proceedings will be realized and appropriated towards his dues. If after this anything remains, it will be given to him.”

联合酿酒集团创始人Vittal Mallay的儿子Mallya于2016年3月逃离了印度,据称是因为他当时借了一大笔钱却从未偿还,于是贷方与调查机构对他步步紧逼。

Developed by Prestige Estates, the sky mansion was completed according to the contract with Mallya, which basically meant just the exterior shell we see in the pictures. The interior was a more complicated issue, as there was a problem determining who the claimant was after the Indian mogul started having legal problems.“Only the external structure of the penthouse is being constructed. The interiors will remain pending since there isn’t any clarity on the matter on who the claimant is,” a source close to the development said.

从那以后,他一直都在对这些指控表示异议,而印度也一直在试图将他从英国引渡回国。Mallya从来都没有在自己的空中大厦居住过,如果他根据《洗钱法》被判有罪,则该大厦可能会被没收并出售以追回债务。即便洗钱活动未能得到证实,可他的债务仍然存在,银行也会为了试图追回欠款而将其出售掉。

It’s unclear whether Vijay Mallya will ever get to live in his sky mansion, or if he’ll ever return to India, for that mater, but despite being abandoned for several years, the lavish home is still making headlines and getting attention online.

目前尚不清楚Vijay Mallya是否有机会住进他的空中豪宅,或者是否会返回印度居住。无论如何,这栋豪宅尽管被荒废了多年,却仍然不断成为头条新闻,并在网上引发关注。
