The Planning Minister of Melbourne has granted approval this week to The Falls tower, a 71-story building which would be the fourth tallest building in the city. The announcement is the latest in a series of tall building approvals as the city looks to attract residents to the center of the city.
The Falls will be built in the Southbank area neighboring a number of future skyscrapers. Recently approved Queensbridge Tower, at 276 meters (906 feet) tall, is slated to be the city's second tallest building. Prima Pearl Tower, which is under construction, will reach 255 meters (974 feet). Existing neighbors include 205-meter (673-foot) Freshwater Place and 297-meter (975-foot) Eureka Tower.
Plans for the Falls include communal meeting rooms, a lap pool and spa as well as function rooms, lounges and bars for residents and guests.
