CBD’s tallest tower tops out
Aurora Melbourne Central, the city’s tallest tower, topped out at almost 300 metres high on April 5 in a ceremony with the Lord Mayor.
The mixed-use tower includes residential, serviced apartments, retail and commercial space and has been partly occupied since October last year while construction continued at higher levels.
Lord Mayor Sally Capp welcomed the city’s newest building.
“Melbourne is renowned for our stunning skyline and we have an exciting new addition with Aurora Melbourne Central,” she said.
“This mixed-use development by UEM Sunrise and Probuild will see new residents and businesses move into the CBD and I look forward to welcoming them into our new great city.”
The celebration was also attended by Probuild managing director Simon Gray, UEM Sunrise CFO Mohamed Rastam Shahrom and board of directors’ member Christina Foo (pictured).
The tower is the only residential development in Melbourne to have a direct underground connection to Melbourne Central.
Some 95 per cent of the development sold in just two weeks, and it is now completely sold out.
