...and they've just been put on a eureka tower shaped base.



...and then turned purple.
Size or otherwise, this building -108- could never be confused with any other.

hi everyone, I'm new to Skyscrapercity. I'm obviously from Melbourne and the other day I googled "Australia 108" and this article appeared: http://au.greekreporter.com/2013/03/...gets-go-ahead/

Tell me what's going on?

Does that justify the fact the building looks weird to him? I don't really fancy the design though.

I'm not saying its a bad design, it's just weird, tall but weird. Both Mexico City and Melbourne have good and bad designs, dont take it personally. don't show your complex.

Congrats for the project, anyway!

The design is pretty bad, hopefully there'll be a few design reviews and something beautiful and elegant will come out of it. The firm behind the tower is a bit crazy though, you either love or hate their stuff.

Approved!!!!!
At 388m, the 108-storey tower will be 91m higher than the Eureka Tower. Source: Herald Sun

A CONTROVERSIAL plan to build the Southern Hemisphere's tallest tower has been approved for Southbank.

At 388m, the 108-storey tower will be 91m higher than the Eureka Tower.

Planning Minister Matthew Guy has given the green light to the $600 million Australia 108 project, which will feature 664 apartments and a luxury hotel.

"I think this will be a magnificent addition to Melbourne's skyline. Australia 108 will be a signature development that will define Melbourne for decades to come," he said.

Mr Guy approved the building, at the corner of City Rd and Southbank Boulevard, despite initial opposition by Melbourne City Council and concerns it would cast a shadow over the Shrine precinct.

"The Shrine trustees are comfortable with this and the Government has accepted almost all of the council's permit conditions, and I think this will be a magnificent addition to Melbourne's skyline," Mr Guy said.


Designed by Eureka's architects, Fender Katsalidis, the centrepiece will be a 288-room, six-star hotel bursting out from a sky high triangle-shaped feature inspired by the stars of the Southern Cross.

Work on the project, which will create 300 construction and hospitality jobs, could start this year.

Mr Guy said such residential towers were consistent with government policy to concentrate high-density developments in defined areas.

This will give sydney-siders one more reason to disparage and sneer at Melbourne.

Don't know where they get this inspiration from, ladies' grotesque hats during Melbourne Cup day?
