Imagine you were as rich as a billionaire. Where do you think you'd want to build your dream home? Maybe on a beautiful beach or high up in a swanky New York City penthouse?
Now, let's take a peek into businessman Vijay Mallya's incredible mansion. It's not your typical billionaire's abode with lush gardens, an infinity pool, a helipad, and a sprawling deck.
What makes it extraordinary is its location – it's perched about 400 feet in the sky!
This magnificent mansion sits atop the Kingfisher Towers in UB City, Bengaluru, India. It spreads across a massive 40,000 square feet, and it's unlike any of the other apartments in the building below.
Irfan Razack, the chairman of Prestige Estates Projects involved in constructing this tower, had this to say about the remarkable project: "It was a challenge to construct the mansion on a huge cantilever at that height, but we have ensured we build it exactly the way it was conceived. It's a complex structure and the finishing work is going on."
"We will finish the project as per contract and hand it over."
The mansion is worth about $20 million, but here's the twist: even though Vijay Mallya splurged big to turn his lavish home dreams into reality, he might never get to live there.
Back in March 2016, Mallya left India and moved to the UK because he couldn't pay back debts of over $1 billion (£842 million). He also faced some serious charges, including fraud.
India has been trying hard to bring Mallya back to face justice. This guy made a fortune selling Kingfisher beer, and then he ventured into aviation and even Formula 1 racing.
Just this year, British Security Minister Tom Tugendhat was asked about Mallya's extradition. He made it clear that the UK doesn't want to be a safe haven for people dodging the law.
In his chat with PTI, Tugendhat had this to say: "We both (the UK and India) have legal processes that must be gone through. But the UK government is absolutely clear, we have no intention of becoming a place where those who are seeking to evade justice can hide."
While the Indian government keeps chasing after Mallya, his mansion stands there, waiting for its owner to claim it.
Even though Mallya is nowhere to be seen, people can't help but be fascinated by this extraordinary building. One person on the internet called it "beautiful but scary at the same time."
Someone else chimed in, saying, "I'm gonna buy this one day."
As we ponder whether Mallya will ever set foot in his dream home, it's anyone's guess who might eventually call it their own.
