Project summary

Australia 108 is a visionary landmark and the tallest residential tower floor-to-roof in the Southern Hemisphere.

Rising over three hundred metres, the project was centred around creating an urban marker to redefine the Melbourne skyline and city living. The unique and distinctive golden Starburst delivers a dramatic exclamation mark on the horizon.

Australian 108 has conceived a vertical community in an era where the city’s densification is becoming increasingly critical.

“Australia 108 represents WCG’s first iconic project in Melbourne. It has been an absolute pleasure to connect and work with FK to make this spectacular building possible.

What was delivered reflects the vision for a building intended to feel like a close-knit community and home to cloud breaking lifestyle.

Creating Melbourne’s tallest building was no easy feat. The phenomenal commitment from FK team ensured deliverables were met.

Australia 108 was an instant hit when it launched. We have happy residents absolutely loving the breathtaking views, enjoy living in the building and sharing the luxury space with families and friends.”
