Yes but in this case the problem is that the runway capacity is woefully inadequate. There's only one N/S runway and Melbourne is a pretty large city with a ton of air traffic. Even if you rerouted the flight paths the alternative routes would have to be left open because the Melbourne/Sydney corridor is one of the busiest in the world.

Interesting to see whether Melbourne forumers embrace the change or carp about it as they did the original.

I don't like the stuff in the middle but a 1250+ footer in Australia would be awesome!

APPROVED

100 levels, 319m, 1100 apartments

(There is a video in the below link)

Planning Minister approves Australia 108, a 100-storey apartment tower to be built at Southbank

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/vic...-1226966611057

MELBOURNE is set to host the southern hemisphere’s tallest building, with a 100-storey apartment tower approved for Southbank.

Australia 108 will stand at 319m — 25m higher than the Eureka Tower — and have more than 1100 units.

It is proposed by Singapore developer Aspial Corporation, which also wants to build an 83-level skyscraper in A’Beckett St, near Queen Victoria Market.

The Napthine Government has given the green light to Australia 108 after initially approving a much higher version of the tower last year.

But the original 388m project designed by Eureka architects Fender Katsalidis had to be scaled back due to CBD flight controls.

Planning Minister Matthew Guy said the new design would no longer feature a hotel, but would provide housing choice with a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

“Australia 108 will be the most striking building on Melbourne’s skyline and a great example of the strength of homegrown Melbourne architecture,” he said.

Also newly approved is a 75-level apartment tower at 452 Elizabeth St and a 54-storey building at 84 Queensbridge, Southbank.

Mr Guy said the three planned skyscrapers, with more than 2000 units, would involve an

$830 million investment and 5800 construction jobs.

“These new buildings will cater for those choosing to live in our exciting, vibrant CBD area, which is fast on track to be the first true 24-hour central city in Australia,” he said.

“Central Melbourne is the right place for high-density, highrise living.”

I like that new design. Looks a lot smoother and even the weird boxes don't look so bad.

How on earth do they squeeze 100 floors in a 319m tall tower? Who's going to live there? 5' tall North Koreans?

That is a VERY nice tower! Glad it doesn't look awkward anymore! Title needs changing, but it's still great to see a new supertall for Australia!

And Hunser, that still works out as around 3.19m per floor... which aint too bad, it's still quite a bit more than the minimum allowance for British floors anyway...

Yeah, 10'5" per floor is super small for a supertall. 432 Park Avenue is 1397' and only 89 floors

If the 100th Level is an ob. deck as mentioned today on radio I hope they punch it through the roof and have an open rooftop deck on top...The original NY WTC rooftop deck was amazing !

the stupid sticky out part ruins it again, without it it is a good design though. it is also weird that they did not change the name, since the floor reduction.

The stick out part is really terrible, it ruins a great design. And a 100 floor building is only 319m? Is this a joke??

Most buildings don't look good with stick out parts. Don't like the one here, it's terrible.

This would be a very beautiful tower, but for the tumors.

The new name will be released when the new design is officially released. The media are just using the old name.
