I think we really need this thread. Australia doesn't seem to have too many 200m+ buildings under construction at the moment and it doesn't look like it will have too many of them in the near future. Recently people have started adding shorter buildings to the 200m+ thread IMO as a result of the lack of actual 200m+ buildings. I don't think these belong in the 200m+ thread so this thread will allow those buildings to be showcased. After looking through a number of SkyscraperCity threads I noticed that quite a few people think that only buildings above 150m should be considered skyscrapers so I chose 150m as the cut off point. Originally, I was going to go with 100m but I think that the thread would end up being cluttered with too many projects. Melbourne only has two projects between 150m and 199m at the moment.

Melbourne

Barton Tower- 156m/residential





Zen Apartments -163m/residential

111 Eagle Street should start to appear out of the ground by the end of the financial year. IMO the best tower in this category in the country (now watch the shitstorm after that comment!).

^^ Wow. If the world economy was in a better shape and all the towers planned for Brisbane were built then Brisbane would have one of the most modern looking skylines in Australia. The designs aren't as boxy as the ones we keep getting in Melbourne. Go Brisbane :cheers:
