Australia 108 tops out

Australia 108 tops out Image

June 9 marked the official “topping out” of Melbourne’s new tallest building Australia 108 on City Rd in Southbank.

Spanning 319 metres or 100 levels, the building is officially the tallest residential building in the Southern Hemisphere.

While Australia 108 takes the gong for Australia’s highest floorplate, Q1 on the Gold Coast still holds the title for tallest structure thanks to its 97.7-metre spire.

Australia 108 is the work of developer World Class Global collaborating with architects Fender Katsalidis and builder Multiplex. Construction started five years ago and is due for completion later this year.

World Class Global CEO David Ng said the topping out of Australia 108 was a hugely fulfilling moment and a special moment for Melbourne’s skyline.

“Over the past five years, Australia 108 has steadily been growing on Melbourne’s skyline. Now, we are immensely proud to announce the project has officially gone where none of its neighbours have been before - we have completed the structure,” Mr Ng said •
