State Government gives green light
for Southbank by Beulah
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 our $2 billion Southbank by Beulah project.
Soaring 365 metres high and cementing itself in history as Australia’s tallest tower, the 270,000sqm mixed-use precinct will see the greatest minds in international design and cultural placemaking come together to shape a world-class development and set a new benchmark in the livable city and civic experience.
Anticipated to generate more than 4,700 jobs during its construction and 3,250 new ongoing direct jobs across multiple industries – including office, retail, entertainment, hospitality and child care – the announcement is a welcome addition in light of the current economic environment.
Brought to life in a formidable collaboration alongside Dutch design firm UNStudio and local firm Cox Architecture — winners of our 2018 Southbank by Beulah design competition — the permit allows Beulah to officially transform the current BMW site into a true vertical village.
Set to transform the way Melburnians work, live, learn, revitalise and play, Southbank by Beulah will comprise four distinct collections of private residences, public and green spaces, rooftop sky garden commercial offices, a five-star urban resort, childcare centre, a health and wellness precinct, arts and culture spaces and programs, as well as world-class experiential retail.
Establishing a global benchmark as an unprecedented lifestyle hub catering to present and future generations, the project may also become the world’s tallest vertical garden, offering users an unprecedented connectedness to nature within an urban environment.
Via this series of outdoor spaces and green devices, the building will pay homage to Melbourne’s title as The Garden City, symbolically bridging the iconic Royal Botanic Gardens with Melbourne’s Arts Precinct.
Equally, pocket parks will be a focal point throughout, connecting neighbourhoods within the residential tower and providing residents with a sense of community and relaxation, before culminating in a landscaped journey to the publicly accessible rooftop sky garden.
