What Happened to Mumbai's Trump Tower?

There seems to be certain amount of ambiguity over the fate of the city's most talked about signature project, the Trump Tower near Girgaum Chowpatty. Launched last year, the project, which is being handled by Rohan Lifescapes, has not yet recovered from its many roadblocks.
First there was Smita Panvalkar, a resident of one of the two buildings earmarked for demolition to make way for the 42-storey residential tower. Next, there were reports that the civic body had issued stop work notice to the builders for violating construction norms. And finally, there were swirling rumours that the promoters of the project were looking for a new location, possibly on Altamount Road. Well, going by what the US biz magnate's realty division says, Rohan Lifescapes is expected to commence construction soon, at the same site. And once completed, the 'prime location and breath-taking views' would be the tower's biggest USP.
There's a caveat though: we have learnt that due to the new development norms laid down by the civic body, the original design of the tower may have already undergone some significant changes.
