The project has an estimated worth of €100m and requires the two units of the UK developer to build the two upmarket complexes, Eternia and Enigma, in a joint venture.

Designs for the complexes, which have been planned to rise beside the Sanjay Gandhi national park, have been created by Singapore based architects HB Design.

While the Enigma will rise up to 201m with 59 storeys, the Eternia will be split into 56 storeys and stand 192m tall.

The developer will be starting construction works for the condominium project in May this year and expects them to be completed by 2019.

The towers will offer 605,000m² of floor space and comprise four towers with 1,840 apartments and 4,977 car parking spaces in total.

The developments have also been planned to include a diverse array of facilities such as landscaped gardens, swimming pools, a hammam, a yoga room, squash courts, children's play areas.

"We are thrilled to have been chosen to carry out this massive project in India."

The project has been planned to be in compliance with sustainable construction principles and will target LEED environmental certification.

Bouygues Bâtiment International deputy CEO in charge of Asia-Pacific region Nicolas Borit said: "We are thrilled to have been chosen to carry out this massive project in India.

"The global expertise of Bouygues Bâtiment International coupled with the rich local operation experience of VSL was the key to winning this contract in one of South Asia's most buoyant markets."
