Southbank 356m & 252m $2 billion

#1 Post by rev » Tue Aug 20, 2019 3:38 pm

$2 billion development by Beulah International has been lodged over in Melbourne now with the government.
Design by UNStudio and COX.

The taller of the two towers, an apartment skyscraper, will rise to an eye-watering 356.2 metres under the proposal, making it the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere, dwarfing nearby Australia 108 at 312 metres.

The shorter of the towers will comprise flexible commercial offices featuring both indoor and outdoor green terraces.

The proposed mixed-use lifestyle precinct, dubbed Southbank by Beulah, will comprise of 270,000sq m with 30,000sq m provided for ground floor retail and 13,500sq m dedicated to arts and cultural programs.

The development will have four distinct collections of private residences, 35,000sq m of commercial offices, a 220-key five star hotel, a 6,600sq m conference centre, 4,000sq m fresh food marketplace and 7,250sq m dedicated to public green spaces.

The shorter tower will also feature a five-star urban resort topped with a “world-class rooftop culinary experience”, with views of the Melbourne skyline.

Normally I'm very dubious of renders that have such prominent greenery, but given the prominence of this site it's not unreasonable to expect the final result might actually do it justice.

I hope this becomes a real destination in terms of public space, retail and other spaces. This is the last chance for a major development in southbank imo (excluding the next Crown development).
Southgate is good and all but it isn't iconic.
