There are some big towers going up around Aus atm!


PS. The quoted Skytower figure is for Gross Floor Area, not sure if that is what the other figures are as well.
Yes, we usually use GFA.

Skytower at 145,000sqm indeed is massive (more than I thought). That is more GFA than Eureka (125,000sqm from memory).

It will be quite a sight once finished.

Same height different width?

Greenland tower has a GFA of 41,000m. Does that sound right?

Versus

Swanston Street's . 94,000.

That's more than double.

Plus not all of Greenland is resi.

I might have the figures wrong. However, it seems that Swanston St will be the same size as two Greenland towers standing next to each other.

Don't underestimate girth Cul

New By the Gardens pics care of PaPa Riddlz:





The shorter tower may have grown; it could be 220m now up from 214m. Taller tower is 231m.

Skyline height should be 257m RL and 250m RL. So pretty significant, not what it used to be (~280m), but still biggish.

Really highlights how chunky Skytower will be (at 145,000sqm). Powerful!

very imposing indeed! Crown Melbourne at 212,000 will be an absolute monster going by what Skytower looks like.

It is bigger than that.

From the One Queensbridge planning report:

Quote:
GFA 300,736m (282,530m above ground)
I keep saying it, One Queensbridge will be Australia's only inner city mountain.

Interestingly Skytower is listed at 120,400m sqm at The Skyscraper Center:

https://www.skyscrapercenter.com/bui...skytower/17360

However, this post here by KJBrissy back in 2011 appears to indicate a GFA of 157,981m2.

So yes, it would be good to get confirmation of the correct GFA (three different values to choose from, maybe more).

GFA of 157,981m2 was for both towers in the development.

It is from the DA.

EDIT: Whoops, looks like I was looking at an old DA, Skytower is actually 103,764. Sorry guys!

I went to the sales office yesterday to check out the model. It is 90% glass. Just a small concrete strip in the middle on one side that goes up not even three quarters of the way. Will try to post photos.

I havent posted pics in a long time. Used to use photobucket. Will it still let me share my pics for free?
