Brisbane Skytower is set to loom over our city and we’ve got all the pictures. Would you swim in Australia’s highest infinity pool?
Brisbane’s skyline is set to soar when the city’s tallest tower comes to town.
At 90 storeys (274 m), Brisbane Skytower will give Brisbane the second highest habitable units in Australia, with the developers hoping to eventually take out the top spot with the addition of a further 26m.
Located at 222 Margaret Street in the CBD, Brisbane Skytower will be the highest building in Brisbane and the third tallest in Australia, behind only Q1 on the Gold Coast and Eureka Tower in Melbourne.
The project forms part of a joint venture between Sydney-based property developer Billbergia and leading investment house, AMP Capital. Billbergia Managing Director and Co-Founder John Kinsella says the joint venture recognised the opportunity to create an iconic building in the Brisbane CBD which would add value to the cityscape, attract prospective investors and become a destination for city living.
“Brisbane has a passionate desire to become one of the world’s top ten lifestyle cities and its transformation has already begun,” he says.
“Brisbane Skytower will take advantage of the opportunity to meet demand for premium, yet attainable, dwellings in the CBD and presents an exciting opportunity for local, interstate and international investors to be a part of Brisbane’s journey towards ‘new world city’ status.”
The project will deliver approximately 1,119 residencies comprising a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments through to sub-penthouse and penthouse apartments.
Strategically designed to maximise breathtaking views, Brisbane Skytower will offer panoramic views over the Brisbane River, Botanic Gardens and beyond. A landscaped third floor podium will provide sunlight and views from lower level apartments while the sky recreation deck, situated on the 89th floor, will be home to Australia’s highest infinity pool.
Brisbane Skytower apartments will be officially released to the market on November 29, prices start from $425,000 for a one bedroom apartment.
The project is expected to take about five years to complete.
