At a cost of $ 1.5 billion and 101 floors, the building will be called the Green Spine and will be spiral shaped.
It will be built at 118 City Road, Southbank and will be 356 meters high; 30 meters higher than the Q1 tower on the Gold Coast, currently the tallest in Australia, and 35 meters higher than the skyscraper, Australia 108, in Melbourne, which has not yet been completed.
The building is part of a set of projects approved by the state government. The other construction projects include a 35-story office building at 555 Collins St, a 26-story office tower at 52-60 Collins St and a 300-apartment building at 550 Epsom Road, Flemington.
