AE Interest:
Tallest self-supported structure in Australia at 1,058.07 ft with Highest Swimming Pool in Australia. Teardrop canopy wraps around base, echoing the “boat like” geometry. Along with providing a majestic entrance, it is an “urban gesture” to the neighboring buildings on the block by linking them together. Tapered roof with oval spire. Elevators are fastest in Australia, traveling at 1772 ft/min. The level 60 sky garden holds a 30 meter high rainforest with an outdoor terrace observatory (with panoramic views) 180 meters above street level.
