Tallest tower given OK

The 274m tower, Brisbane Skytower, in Brisbane has been given approval. The $1 billion twin-tower project, known as Brisbane Skytower, will be the highest building in Brisbane, beating Meriton’s Infinity by 12m.

No Brisbane building can be built higher because the Civil Aviation Safety Authority restricts building height to avoid interfering with aircraft radar signals. It is expected to be the third-highest building in Australia, behind the 322m Q1 on the Gold Coast and 297m Eureka Tower in Melbourne.

The project, previously known as 111 + 222, will include a 90-storey tower at 222 Margaret St with 1100 residential apartments as well as a 42-storey tower, 131m high, at 111 Mary St. The smaller building will be a premium 4-5 star hotel, with more than 300 rooms and 95 apartments.

Cafes, bars, a ballroom and retail stores are expected to make up the ground floor of the project, while there will be a “sky recreation deck” at the top of the 90-storey building, which is being developed by Sydney-based developer Billbergia and AMP Capital.
