Southbank by Beulah

For future Melbourne

Southbank by Beulah is not only the most ambitious project from Beulah; it is one of the most ambitious ever undertaken in Australia. Following unanimous backing from the City of Melbourne’s Future Melbourne Committee in March, the Victorian State Government has officially given the green light to this $2 billion project — set to become Australia’s tallest tower and revitalise Southbank for present and future generations. This truly transformative project will serve a range of functions, from residential to retail and commercial, and all to enrich the civic life of Melbourne through extensive programs of inspiring cultural innovation.

Southbank by Beulah is a project of an unprecedented scale for Melbourne, drawing together leading figures in international design and placemaking to create a world-class, multi-use development that sets a benchmark in liveable city design.

Due to become Australia’s tallest building, Southbank by Beulah will be a stunning sculptural form composed of two towers, both with a twisting geometric glass façade and terracing, and featuring pocket parks and green spaces up to a publicly accessible botanic garden atop the 365m-high tower.

Envisioned as both a vertical village and a mini-metropolis, Southbank by Beulah is a multi-faceted and pedestrian-friendly destination of 270,000sqm with a strong emphasis on placemaking. Set among its twin towers and activated podium will be four distinct collections of private residences, a hotel, commercial offices, a conference and entertainment centre, a children’s daycare centre, a world-class integrated health and wellness precinct, experiential retail spaces and 6,000sqm of green park spaces running throughout the entire project.

“I think that those sorts of ways of providing accessibility through what could otherwise be viewed as fortresses in the sky, are really important and they do add considerably […] to the sense of vibrancy and human activity. Opportunities for developments of this size and ambition are very rare within our city.”
– Lord Mayor Sally Capp, Chair of Major Events and Chair of Major Projects

However, Beulah’s vision goes far beyond bricks and mortar, with an ambition to create nothing less than a 24-hour activated precinct. Not only will this project bring new life to Southbank, but it will also create a new destination for the city to experience events, culture, dining, retail and recreation. Southbank by Beulah will become a key Melbourne landmark, bringing together the best of the city in one must-visit destination for locals and visitors alike.

As such a large-scale development designed to impact the city positively, Beulah has collaborated closely with the City of Melbourne to ensure it supports the official Future Melbourne 2026 plan. The project will significantly help the broader transformation of the Arts Precinct by creating a green, active and connected urban environment with long-lasting value for present and future generations.

Positioned between the city’s cultural heartland and the CBD, and designed to extend the green parkland of City Road to the riverbank entertainment precinct, the location of Southbank by Beulah is a nexus where the very best of Melbourne’s arts, parks and community comes together.
