Skyscrapers & High-Rise Buildings in Australia

Australia has witnessed a sweeping rise in the construction of high-rise residential and commercial buildings in the last decade. Already home to 325 towers of 100 metres or taller in height, Australia is expecting new additions of around 272 towers. In Melbourne alone, 111 new towers are in the pipeline, reflecting greater international trends in high-rise construction. Over the next half decade, residential height records are expected to be broken in most major Australian cities. As early as 2019, Melbourne’s Southbank skyline will house the tallest apartment building in the Southern Hemisphere at 317 metres, surpassing the Eureka Tower.
