Full screen

New renderings have been released of the latest stunning skyscraper to join Melbourne‘s already impressive CBD line up on Collins Street.

Receiving the green light from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning as well as the City of Melbourne this week, Zaha Hadid Architects will begin construction of the 54 storey building this year in a bid to become an new emblem of “the most livable city in the world”.

The project will be a massive one featuring 70,000 square metres across its entire floorspace which will house office, retail, residential, and public spaces. It may sound like every other flashy new building in town but the Zaha Hadid designers always have a silver bullet up the sleeve.

The completed building will use 50% less energy than standard buildings whilst retaining its striking skeletal design. Speaking of design, the architects at Zaha will take a modern approach with white planar columns which form a structure which resembles a giant heat-sink.

Those looking to buy off the plan will have to hold off a bit longer as no completion date has been set yet. For now you get a cool clip rendering from the renowned design group.
