The Victorian state government has given the green light for a new project to build Australia’s tallest tower.


Construction is expected to provide 4,500 jobs over the course of six years, as well as generating an additional $1 billion for Melbourne’s building industry.


The $2 billion project received all round support from the City of Melbourne’s Future Melbourne Committee and the Victorian Government.


The building will top out at 365 meters and will aim to be a vertical villiage for Melbournians, spanning a total of 27,000 square kilometres.


Mayor Sally Capp is a fan of the project and considered it a huge vote of confidence in Melbourne – especially at a time of economic uncertainty.


“This will be Australia’s tallest building when completed and the project includes a sky garden that will have some of the best views in Melbourne,” Capp said.


“The rippling style of the building is unique and will be a striking addition to Melbourne’s skyline.”


Melbourne Developer Beulah is leading the project – they claim that 3259 ongoing jobs will be created by the finished project, through various means such as retail, offices, hospitality, and childcare.


The working population of the Southbank area will grow 8% with the completion of the tower.


The application was first submitted in August 2019 with a strong focus on a connection to nature in an urban environment.


Southbank by Beulah will consist of four collections of residences, public and green spaces, town hall, commercial offices, a five-star urban resort, health and wellness precinct, and childcare centre within two twisting towers.

The spine of the buildings twist into a series of outdoor gardens and public spaces for the residents and occupants of the building.


The design pays homage to Melbourne’s title as ‘The Garden City’.


The developers plan to provide residents with a connection to the community through connecting neighbourhoods with the tower via local parks.


Nicholas Reece, City of Melbourne’s Planning Portfolio Chair said that project will be an amazing addition to Southbank.


“The team behind Beulah are relative newcomers to Melbourne but they have worked to deliver a design that is both elegant and delivers community benefits for Southbank,” Reece said.


“We sometimes hear people in this city say, ‘Melbourne has never seen anything like It’. That is often said with a little bit of exaggeration but think we can confidently say ‘Melbourne has never seen anything like Beulah’.


“It’s not just about the height – so much thought and effort has gone into the design and the green space. The apartments will provide a high level of amenity for residents along with services such as bike and car parking, a childcare centre, retail, hotel and office space.”


Southbank has been relatively quiet the last few years, construction wise.


Lead architect on the project Philip Rowe said, “Our collaborative concept has the ability to truly uncover its potential, improving the urban amenity while seamlessly unifying the suburb with Melbourne’s CBD,”


Construction will commence in 2021 and take around 5 years.
