Developer Beulah International has submitted its long-awaited plans for Australia’s tallest development in Southbank to Minister for Planning Richard Wynne for approval.
Located on the BMW site on the corner of City Rd and Southbank Boulevard, the 356 metre Southbank by Beulah project is refinement of the UNStudio and Cox Architecture’s twin tower design, underpinned by “creativity and cultural innovation”.
A proposed mixed-use lifestyle precinct of 270,000 sqm, the updated design includes:
Four collections of private residences;
35,000 sqm of commercial offices;
A 220-key five-star urban resort;
6600 sqm of conference and entertainment centre;
A children’s play centre;
A health and wellbeing precinct;
30,000sqm of world-class retail including a new BMW experience centre; and
7250sqm of public green spaces, including the Future Sky Garden.
“We have worked closely with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DEWLP) and the City of Melbourne and we are inspired by their vision for Southbank,” Beulah International managing director Jiaheng Chan said.
“We believe this project will significantly support the wider transformation of the area by creating a green, active, connected urban environment that invites and encourages an enjoyable experience for both residents and visitors.”
