Sydney, Southport towers may dwarf Q1

Two projects are threatening 78-storey Q1’s status as the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest residential high-rise.

On the Gold Coast Imperial City is a 104-storey super high-rise plus two small towers of 85 and 75 levels respectively.

Meanwhile, in Sydney, Chinese developer Greenland Australia plans a new tower that will be the tallest residential building in Australia that will also house a creative hub featuring dance, theatre, music, film and visual arts facilities.

The Gold Coast development at Southport – named Imperial City – proposed by Rob Badalotti’s Azzura International Constructions would have 2200 apartments, a 200-room hotel and 200 student accommodation rooms. If approved, the complex could be completed by 2019.

Each building would have a six level-basement while a four-level podium and ground floors would feature more than 20,000m² of commercial space a well as education facilities.

Greenland’s creative hub to be built in the heart of Sydney’s CBD would span 2000m² over five storeys while the $440 million Greenland Center will feature 490 residential apartments and ground-floor retail space, while a 173-room hotel will be built on a neighbouring site in the city centre.

The buildings are expected to open in late 2017.
