Looks like melbourne has had the biggest boom this century. many unit blocks!
Sydney has had the most 150m+ skyscrapers and Brisbane has the most currently uc over 90m.

Quite a lot of fillers added to the Melbourne skyline by the looks of that, nearly twice the number of any other city!

Intesting thread Cul, thanks for the research.

^they sure have. melburnians should be very happy since year2000. it was a quiet decade before hand. Kastalidis Republic Tower in 2000 basically paved way for the dozens of unit blocks built over next few years since.
Sydney had its big boom pre 2000 Olympics. It had 40 skyscrapers over 90m built from 1990-99.!! while Melb had just 15.
So since 1990. Sydney has had 58 skyscrapers over90m built while melb has 62.

The good thing about Melbourne is that they just keep coming unlike after the late 80's boom when when almost nothing was under construction for five years.

Six 90m+ buildings are U/C in Melbourne at the moment:

Neo200
538 Bourke Street
Vue Grand
Freshwater Place 3
SX Stage 2
550 Bourke Street

Three more are also scheduled to start within a few months:

Southbank One
Atlantis Tower
Barton Tower

i would like to see a few buildings in hobart, but not too tall, because of the shots u get looking at the hills in the background, big (125 +) buildings would somewhat ruin it?!?!?

It looks like the list wont be added, in regards to Adelaide. In today's paper they had an article about the tallest buildings in each major city centre and then compared that to Adelaide's. Part of the reason we don't have many talls is due to the council's restrictions on the heights of the buildings. I was appalled to find out that the council knocked back two projects as the building were going to be over 40m in height. It's disgusting and stunting the growth of an otherwise beautiful city. Something needs to change, and fast.

yes, Adelaides planners and councillors seem to be too conservative.they think allowing tall bldgs might destroy the look of the city? what crap. it will only enhance it.as long as the tall buildings are located in city core and ACC host design comps for each new project, it will have a profound outcome on the cityscape. as of now its stagnated the growth. somehting has to be done asap.
