Eureka Tower (Level 85)
Architect: Fender Katsalidis
City of Melbourne | R07
The highly sculptural Eureka Tower was the tallest residential building in the world at the time of its completion. Located across the Yarra River from the central business district of Melbourne, the development provides a range of high-end apartments, public observation and experiential centre, and specialist office accommodation in the 90-storey building. The tower itself forms part of a city-block-sized podium, incorporating public art, offices, a hotel, retail, hospitality facilities and commercial car parking. Level 85 is the final yet-to-be-fitted-out shell, which spans an entire floor of Eureka Tower, with uninterrupted 360-degree views through floor-to-ceiling windows. The Eureka Tower has received multiple awards including the Joseph Reed Award for Urban Design, Harry Seidler Award for Commercial Architecture and Best Overall Award for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing.
