Skytower is Brisbane’s tallest tower. Soaring to 90 storeys above the heart of the Brisbane CBD, Skytower will deliver extraordinary luxury amidst breathtaking views. It will be Australia’s single largest residential building, with 1,141 one, two and three bedroom apartments, and spacious penthouses at its peak. Skytower has been designed with 3 separate areas of living: Uptown and Downtown, Skyrise, Skycity, and Penthouses, each with its own independent lifts, lobbies and recreational deck including gyms, pools, BBQ areas and steam rooms. The residents of Skycity and the penthouses have the luxury of exclusive access to the world’s highest infinity edge pool, located on the rooftop. The apartments offer an unforgettable living experience, taking full advantage of the tower’s awe-inspiring height and stunning views through walls of glass. The fitout and building services include cutting edge end user technology including the installation of high speed NBN, and advanced integrated services. Each of the three living areas are self-sufficient for power, water, waste and sewerage services. The Skytower site at 222 Margaret Street has an infamous history. Originally the site was intended for ‘Vision Brisbane’, a 283m high mixed used skyscraper. Soon after construction started, the developer went into liquidation leaving a seven story deep excavation site which sat dormant for seven years until it was purchased by Billbergia early in 2011. At the height of Brisbane’s 2011 floods, Billbergia partnered with Brisbane City Council to use the site as a temporary dam, enabling neighbouring basements and buildings flooded to be drained as quickly as possible, saving the surrounding buildings from excessive water damage.
