Also on the horizon there is ANA on the Gold Coast should also come on line soon Culwulla, 70 floors Mixed-use, 30 office, 40 resi, should be good for upwards of 240m I think.

Plus APH said 480 Queen Street in Brisbane will start early 2007, DA going in soon, def over 150m, rumoured at maybe even around 300m if we are lucky!

Cheers Culwulla. I think the BAC tower 2 on George street in Brisbane is also lodging a DA very soon, 60,000 sqm of office tower, starting construction without precommitments this year once approved, should be good for over 150m.

^^Well this is mainly about buildings that are UC - not every tower that's little more than a twinkle in the developers eye :) But what about Brisbane Square Cul - its UC and 151m. That makes 8 for Australia.

Australia - 8 UC of 150m+
Eureka (Melb) 297m/91s
Circle on Cavill B (GC) 219m/70s
Meriton Tower (Syd) 170m/48s
Verve501 (Melb) 170m/45m
Skyline (Bris) 160m/48s
Circle on Cavill A (GC) 158m/50s
Lumiere (Syd) 151m/47s
Brisbane Square (Bris) 151m/38s

I was having a little play with the stats and we actually compare really well on the international scene. I mean you can't compete with China, US & UAE but otherwise we're right up there. Let me know if I missed out any major ones. I used Emporis - I know some are data defficient, Russia inparticular but nevertheless, this is the numbers you get:

China - 75
United Arab Emirates - 66
United States - 58
Japan - 10
Australia - 8
Panama - 7
Russia - 6
South Korea - 5
Spain - 5

Nice work yet again culwulla

Go QLD nice work if you get half the proposed towers built you will be doing well.

As for Melbourne reminds me of the early nineties when constuction all but stopped. At least we got 2 nice buildings out of this last boom.

A 150m-200m office tower (taller than ANZ HQ) for the Prudential site is also on the horizon but will most likely be a few years away, maybe 2008-2009.

yes its hard to say what is on "horizon". sometimes a devloper says its a goer or there is a big indication there project isnt far way from starting and it drags on and on and on. while othertimes a project starts straight away.with Prima, i feel it will eventually get built but maybe not for a while.while other projects like grand central and 565 collins seems to be moving forward.

Perth doesn't have a tower U/C over 150m just yet, but the way this boom is going, i reckon we will see some within the next 5-10 years:). we almost had the Parkwest towers(205m and 195m) but the project went bankrupt, so we will see great things for perth over the next few years. cheers fallas:)
