A very recognizable design, but i'm not convinced this is what Melbourne needs...

Most of us here in Sydney are happy to see a project of this magnitude get up in Australia. A supertall to the roof.
I would like to see the sharp edges of the star rounded off more. Hope the feature at the top will be lit up at night.

Hope someday they will build something close to its height in the actual cbd to balance things out... but looks amazing

It's a great design

Much better than 432 Park Ave, NYC!

Just can't force myself to love it. If that awful star in the middle was removed, eureka and this tower would sit together nicely. Unfortunately the way it is, not a big fan.

Maybe I will warm to it further (certainly don't hate it like I initially did), but I'm hoping the design is altered.

Still can't complain with a super tall being approved, sign of things to come hopefully.

I don't like that crown at all. What's the occupied height? 350m? Also, how on earth are they planning to squeeze in 108 storeys? With today's standards only towers >450m occupied height have 100fl+.

We'll see, to each his own. At least 432 PA is 426m to the roof, whereas this one has like a 50m tall "crown".

Yeah, Melbourne has usually built to roof, so this building with the 'thing on top is different' but who am I to complain.......since a kid I imagined a world where my home town would have a building as high as the Empire State building...maybe this will get there before my time is up ?

Melbourne is the city I would most like to visit down-under.

But this tower looks like it was created from a "build your own skyscraper kit" by a pre-teen enthusiast.

With sincerest apologies to the rendering artist, I propose a Foster-esque hexagon tower that would help turn the Mel skyline into one of the most recognizable (even iconic) skylines in the world. Suits the Mel built form as well. Sorry... no "thingies" on top.

The twin Foster supertalls proposed for Toronto are at least 8 years out, so build yours first ;-)

Proposal is residential so floor heights are lower than office building.

That growth around this tower's neck seems so entirely random. I really want to like it, being a new tallest in one of my dream cities.....but no.
