Melbourne, Sydney see tower plans, topping out.
Linked 70-Story Towers for Melbourne’s CBD
SP Setia hopes to build a pair of 70-story, 254-m-tall towers linked by a curving skybridge at 308 Exhibition Street in the central business district (CBD) of Melbourne, Urban Melbourne reported. Designed by Cox Architecture and Fender Katsalidis, one tower would house a 500-plus-room hotel and the other more than 500 residences, both atop a “green” podium. Public and private amenities and a relatively small amount of retail would be on the lower levels. The project’s most striking feature, the skybridge, would be at levels 49 and 50.
Stage One of Skyhaus Tops Out in Sydney
A 31-story tower that represents stage one of the Lateral Estate residential development Skyhaus in the Liverpool area of Sydney topped out in late November 2016, The Urban Developer reported. Located at 420 Macquarie Street, Skyhaus was designed by Liverpool-based Mosca Pserras and will ultimately include a pair of towers connected by a five-story podium. Expected to add approximately 440 apartments to the Liverpool market, the development also includes resident amenities such as a pool and ground-floor retail. Phase one will be complete in March of this year, with phase two scheduled for completion in 2018.
