Another skyscraper could soon be added to Southbank’s skyline, with plans for an 82-storey City Rd high-rise submitted for approval.

If given the green light, the new tower at 334 City Rd would soar 270m above the West Gate Freeway and nearby Clarendon St.

A development company connected to owner of Tasman Market Fresh Meats, Giuseppe Catalfamo, has submitted the proposal to the planning department.

Designed by Hayball Architects, the $200 million super structure will contain more than 500 apartments, up to 200 hotel-rooms, 150 car spaces and a ground floor retail space.  

With a permit currently under consideration, a spokesperson from Planning Minister Matthew Guy’s office issued a statement welcoming the proposal.

“This proposal is typical of the exciting and innovative designs being proposed for the Southbank area and show a real confidence in Melbourne’s livability.”

The proposal has been referred to the City of Melbourne for comment and is currently being assessed.
