The $2 billion project will have construction finished in 2027.

Plans for Australia’s tallest skyscraper have been given the go-ahead by the Victorian Government last week.

The $2 billion Southbank project by Malaysian-backed developer, Beulah International, will feature two twisting geometric towers. The tallest of the two will rise up to 356.2 metres.

The towers will consist of a luxury hotel, 50,000 sqm of offices, health and wellness precincts, apartments and 6,000 sqm of green space.

Construction on STH BNK is planned to be finished by 2027.

“Our vision is not just to build another building for Melbourne, its a project of unprecedented skill,” she said.

The Guardian reported that Melbourne’s Lord Mayor, Sally Capp, said it would support more than 4,700 jobs during the construction process.

The current tallest skyscraper, Q1, located in the Gold Coast, currently sits at 322 meters.
