Australia 108

Australia 108 is an exhilarating new development perfectly positioned within Melbourne’s most desirable arts, dining and entertainment precinct at 70 Southbank Boulevard. Rising 320 meters it the tallest residential building in the Southern Hemisphere. It has been created by the team that successfully delivered the iconic Eureka Tower. Australia 108 will comprise over 1050 apartments with associated amenities and car parking. The iconic “Star Burst” will house premium facilities including two pools, cinema and private dining facilities. It is anticipated that the top level will be ultrahigh penthouse apartments with breathtaking views of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay.

Structural Features

  • The key structural system used in this 320m tower is a concrete core and outriggers to mega column and mega frame.
  • Floors are flat plate two-way post-tensioned plates on a ring pattern of columns and mega columns. Lateral stability and acceleration control are a key design element, thus provision for liquid column damping is provided on the 97th Level.
  • Complex ‘Star Burst’ construction sees amenity zones cantilevering over 8m.
  • Building façade access is by way of a main crane housed at the roof with supplementary systems housed under the ‘Star Burst’ zone.
  • Carparks are concealed behind a pattern of cantilevered planters
  • Large diameter piles are used to support the structure; these are founded more than 40m below ground level.

Tall Buildings

The increasing number of tall and super-tall buildings that have become sculptural features across the skylines of most major cities around the world, is a direct response to rapid increases in population and the demand to work and live in these cities.
