australia 108 to be the southern hemisphere's tallest building

a 100-storey residential tower in melbourne is set to become the southern hemisphere’s tallest building – standing at a total height of 319 meters. australian authorities have finally given the project the green light two years after original designs for the high-rise had been floated. designed by fender katsalidis architects, ‘australia 108‘ will feature over 1,100 units, with a variety of housing comprising one, two and three bedroom apartments. soaring above the neighboring ‘eureka tower’, completed by the same practice, the tower will also feature swimming pools, fitness centers, club lounges and a library. it was announced earlier this year that singaporean property developer world class land, a subsidiary of aspial corporation, had paid $42.3 million AUD for the complex.
