Infosys all set to build world's tallest free standing clock tower

Infosys' global education centre in Mysuru will soon be having the world's tallest free-standing clock tower, as the software giant is all set to build it at the 345-acre site as per the wishes of founder and former chairman NR Narayana Murthy.

The proposed tower is said to be taller than Big Ben (96 m) in London, Hoover Tower (87 m) in California and McGraw Tower (53 m) in Cornell. It will be constructed in Gothic style, keeping in mind the classical look of the other buildings in the campus.

There will be 19 floors in the tower with a board room at level seven. It will be erected from a 22x22 metre base.

The estimated cost of the project which will take 20 months to complete, is said to be Rs 60 crore. According to Murthy, the Mysuru training centre was incomplete without a clock tower.

"A clock tower brings a sense of academic breathing to the campus, and I felt we too will need one. And Vishal (Sikka) felt it is a good idea", he said.
