From tomorrow, the building will be open to the public as part of Brisbane Open House weekend, on October 13 and 14. Skytower will soon be the largest residential building in the Southern-Hemisphere once completed next year. Skytower architect Noel Robinson confirmed it was the biggest project his firm had ever worked on and said the complexities and innovations were enormous.He said they had to overcome hurdles around technical aviation height restrictions with residents, who started moving in a year ago, occupying large portions as it continued towards it final 274.3m height.“The unique structural design and planning, eliminates the need for mass damper tanks at the top of the building, which reduces the swaying effect and adds two additional saleable floors,” Mr Robinson said. “(Lord Mayor) Graham Quirk is keen for the city to get a higher height limit in the future, but that’s subject to negotiation with civil aviation authorities.“At the moment this is as far as it can go and we’re delighted to have reached it.”Designed by NRA Co-Lab, the 90-storey tower (with rooftop ammenty on level 91) bestows an extraordinary level of exclusive amenity from the world’s highest infinity pool at its crown to its multiple recreation decks.
