Global contractor Multiplex has completed construction on an AUD170-million (US$114.21-million) residential high rise in Melbourne, The Urban Developer reported in August. Dubbed “Light House,” the 70-storey tower at 442 Elizabeth Street is 95% presold. Designed by architect Elenberg Fraser, the 607-unit building features nearly 7,000 purple-tinted, angular aluminum panels that change color depending on the viewing angle. One of its features is a Klaus automated car stacker with 157 spaces and 201 bicycle racks provided over seven podium levels.

Construction had been underway since May 2015, employing more than 380. Multiplex has completed several new residential projects in Victoria over the last 12 months, including ICD Property’s Eq. Tower (ELEVATOR WORLD, July 2017), Fragrance Group’s Premier Tower and Salvo Property Group’s Platinum Tower. It has already planned another Melbourne apartment development, “Swanston Central,” for Carlton.
