Brookfield Multiplex appointed builder for Australia 108, piling to commence in October

Singaporean developer World Class Land has formally appointed Brookfield Multiplex as builder for Australia 108, with on-site piling to commence in October.

The tower will become Melbourne's first super-tall skyscraper measuring 319 metres housing 1,105 apartments over 99 levels. A super-tall skyscraper is a building which measures more 300 metres in height.

Urban Melbourne has learned that construction will have five stages. The first stage of construction is scheduled to be completed in 2018 and the entire building will be completed in 2020.

The construction stages have the following milestones:

  • Stage 1: up to level 40, 491 apartments, to be completed late 2018
  • Stage 2: up to level 56, 252 apartments, to be completed mid 2019
  • Stage 3: up to level 66, 162 apartments, to be completed mid 2019
  • Stage 4: up to level 86, 120 apartments, to be completed early 2020
  • Stage 5: up to final level, 80 apartments, to be completed mid 2020

Stages 2 and 3 will be complete in different months in mid 2019 and the awarded construction contract is valued at $500 million.

Development & Planning

The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

When a site spans 19,280 square metres, it becomes a 'district'. That's the case according to the development team behind the Jam Factory's pending overhaul. Reporting on the project to date has focused on the close to 60,000 square metres of new commercial space that is earmarked for the site, but more importantly from a layperson's perspective is the extensive new public realm that is planned as part of the development.

Sustainability & Environment

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
