Isn't Q1 323m ? How can this be taller unless they're referring to roof height.

They're referring to roof height, which Q1 is like 245m, iirc.

Building of the Gold Coast’s new tallest tower has been fast-tacked to begin in the early new year.

Construction of a $1.2 billion 88-level tower in the heart of Surfers Paradise has been pushed forward to start in January 2016 after China-based conglomerate Forise Holdings settled the purchase of the former Iluka building site.

The tower will eclipse the current Q1 as the tallest Gold Coast highrise.

It's taller to the highest occupied floor, not architectural top.

Quote:
The building’s occupied height from lowest to highest floor will total 285 metres, overtaking the Q1 as the Gold Coast’s tallest tower which is 235 metres.

Nice tower. The Gold Coast is fascinating to me. I was thinking if there is another place in the world that builds supertalls directly on the beach.

I don't think any in Honolulu are supertalls though?

Any way, this one has been approved and construction set to commence in January 2016
