At 319 metres above Melbourne, the tallest residences in the southern hemisphere have been unveiled by Singaporean developer World Class Land Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of
Fender Katsalidis Architects, Australia 108’s 1,105 luxury apartments will go on sale in Melbourne in February 2015 to those looking for an iconic home in what will be the southern hemisphere’s tallest residential building when completed in 2019.
With habitable levels up to level-100, the $1 billion Australia 108 tower will surpass Q1 on the Gold Coast, which although four metres taller, only has 71 habitable levels.
Aspial CEO Koh Wee Seng said Australia 108 would offer an unparalleled level of luxury to its residents.
“Australia 108 will go where no development has gone before. As the tallest tower in the southern hemisphere, it will offer one of the world’s most luxurious lifestyles, the largest communal recreation facilities in Australia as well as world-class luxury apartment living,” Mr Koh said.
Divided into two exclusive experiences, the building’s 161 Cloud Residences above level 71 will feature a private lobby with personal concierge and private lift as well as an exclusive recreation facility within the Star Club with an infinity pool, private gym and entertaining facilities.
CBRE Managing Director, Residential Projects, Andrew Leoncelli, said this is a truly unique approach designed to create a sense of exclusivity for residents on the upper levels and cater for the privacy these purchasers crave.
“It is complemented by a never-before-seen level of design in the lower level Sky Rise apartments, which set them apart from anything that has been offered to the Australian market before.”
Multi award-winning Australian interior and architecture firm
Carr Design Group has created spaces that bring apartment design into the realm of five-star hotel living.
Meanwhile, international hospitality design firm
Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), will be responsible for the exclusively designed facilities available only to Cloud Residence owners including the private lobby and exclusive recreation facilities.
Crowning the building will be the tallest residence in the southern hemisphere – a 797.4 square metre penthouse. This sprawling suite with multi-million dollar 360 degree views of Melbourne comes fully customisable and with a price tag of more than $20 million.
Located at 70 Southbank Boulevard, Australia 108 will commence construction in mid-2015 and be completed over three stages.
