Australia’s Tallest Skyscraper is Coming to Melbourne

Australia's tallest skyscraper is coming to melbourne

Developer Adelene Teh is behind the $2 billion ambitious redevelopment in Melbourne’s Southbank.  

In March, the Melbourne City Council announced the backing of the project, the tallest tower in Australia which will stand at 356 meters in height. The tower would be slightly taller than the Gold Coast’s 322.5-meter-tall building, Q1. 

The developer has sought approval from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to ensure the height of the building is in line with aviation rules.  

About The Design

The tower would be located south of the CBD and Yarra River. The Green Spine design consists of two towers. One tower 356 meters (102 storeys) in height and the other 252 meters (59 storeys). Both towers feature a spiral glass façade with a botanic garden at the peak that will be open to the public.   

The design was one of six that were designed as a collaboration between Melbourne-based Cox Architecture and Dutch firm UNStuidio.  

About the Development 

The proposal for the building will have 789 apartments, more than 27,000 square meters of office space and more then 32,000 square meters of retail.   

The Redevelopment 

The site was originally occupied by a BMW dealership before being sold to the developer for $101 million in 2017.  

BMW agreed on a preferred partner-style deal with the developer. This will allow BMW to include a BMW experience centre in the retail section of the development.
