The southern hemisphere’s tallest residential tower, Australia 108, will commence construction this month, following the appointment of builder Brookfield Multiplex by developer World Class Land.
The leading global contractor will be responsible for delivering the 319-metre luxury apartment building designed by Fender Katsalidis Architects and to feature 1105 landmark apartments across 100 levels.
The $1 billion tower will also feature three levels of world-class residential amenity, including two infinity pools located 210 metres above ground.
Brookfield Multiplex will commence site establishment works on the Southbank project immediately in preparation for piling to commence in mid October.
The tower will be constructed over five stages, with the first stage earmarked for completion in 2018 and the final in 2020.
The full construction contract is estimated to be worth more than $500 million.
Carr Design Group has designed the five-star hotel-like interiors, while international hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), responsible for the interiors of the Wynn Encore in Las Vegas, Park Hyatt Maldives and the Park Lane Intercontinental in London, has designed the communal facilities available only to Cloud Residence owners.
