Going up: Another skyscraper for super-dense Southbank block
November 24, 2015 - 8:39PM
Melbourne's most densely populated suburb, Southbank, is set to become even more crowded, with a 597 apartment tower approved for the booming inner-city area.
Planning Minister Richard Wynne has signed off on Central Equity's 159-metre, 52-storey skyscraper, on the corner of Kavanagh and Power streets.
The future tower is on a block that will become one of the city's most populated, with another seven high-rises of more than 62 metres built or approved in the immediate vicinity, including the mammoth Australia 108 skyscraper.
