When completed this will be the largest office building in the southern hemisphere. Construction started this year and is due for completion in 2009.

Points to note are: 55m or 11flrs high, 120 000 sqm of floor space and a six star environmental rating.

you're not quite right gappa... ANZ's share is about 87,000 sqm but the building itself is about 120,000 sqm in total let space making it the largest by quite a margin.

Worth mentioning also is that it'll have solar panels and wind turbines. Piling works should be completed in July according to Lend Lease. Architects are Hassell and Bovis Lend Lease Design. The entire project is due for completion in the 2nd half of 2009.

Who will occupy the tower that there currently in?
They'll stay in residence of their iconic HQ store on the corner of Collins and Queen St's. Most of the people moving to the new building will be from the rest of their offices, currently scattered across the city.

It's 11 stories or 55m tall. They probably would not be allowed to go much taller with such a long building, as new developments are not allowed to overshadow the river too much. If it were a thin scraper it could be taller I guess, with a special permit. Anyway it's designed to their needs, so they don't need to go taller I guess.

Just a question. What is the name of that urban development? It seems like its such a huge development comparable only to Dubai. I like the design of the blue building at center of the waterfront.

^^ It's Melbourne's old docklands that are being redeveloped.

Basically just known as 'Docklands'

If you go to Ozscrapers, then Victoria, you can see the Melbourne forum with all the information about other towers/developments in the area.
