MELBOURNE | Queens Place Towers | 251m | 823ft | 79 fl | 250m | 820ft | 79 fl | Demo

Quote:
City apartment boom drives twin skyscrapers plan for Queen Street site

Melbourne's reputation as the skyscraper capital of Australia will be further boosted after a Chinese developer lodged plans to build a twin skyscraper complex on Queen and La Trobe Streets.

Just six months after buying the massive corner site for $135 million, a company called 3L Alliance has submitted plans for two soaring 79-level towers at 350 Queen that will stretch far higher than the nearby 55-level Melbourne Central building on Elizabeth Street.

The completed towers at 267.8 metres will be just 29 metres shorter than the city's current tallest building, the 92-level (297-metre) Eureka tower completed in 2006.

...

The fresh proposal is likely to test newly-elected planning minister Richard Wynne who recently rejected another high-rise apartment planed by Grocon for 85 Spring Street.

3L Alliance's structure at 350 Queen will cost $750 million to build and will include a public plaza, a creche and nearly 2000 square metres of retail space.

The towers will stand behind KTS House, a 21-storey office that will remain on the site.


Just announced today - Melbourne's first 'twin' towers to be built since Collins Place way back in 1981 (which are near but not quite identical).

We are not yet sure if these new-borns will be identical or not. So far the only available render is that of the podium above.

It continues a swathe of 250m+ proposals in the city in the past couple of years including Australia 108 (317m) & Aurora (271m) both of which are imminently due for construction.

Cool. In the render the one tower looks taller than the other though. Are you sure they are the same height?

Journalists are more often than not inaccurate when it comes to reporting on skyscrapers.

Quoting RL's, forgetting about podium floors, using the wrong render etc. are common.

We'll know soon enough when they plans are made public or UM get a hold of them.

As expected the journalists were inaccurate with the building heights.

Both towers are 246m above ground

This proposal looks very much similar to 22 Bishopsgate.

Melbourne's skyline already looks great, but these new towers that have been popping up are going to kick it up another notch.

The twin towers are in the upper left, next to the currently being built northern cluster, just above the parkland (Flagstaff Gardens) on the left side of the render.

Green = Demo/Construction, Blue = Approved & Red = Planning assessment/ proposed.
