Australia’s supertall skyscraper plans scrapped

Australia’s supertall skyscraper plans scrapped
August 13, 2013 Amy Sudbury

The Australia 108 skyscraper plans have been dropped after battling with numerous constraints.

One concerned stakeholder was the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, since there were claims that the 388 metre construction would be an obstruction to a flight path. Also, the scale of Melbourne skyscraper received disapproval from the City Council.

If the Australia 108 had been built, it would have claimed the title of the tallest building in the southern hemisphere, standing 65 metres higher than the current owner of the Q1 building on Australia’s Gold coast.

Planning to build a Skyscraper near to an airport or air base?

For planned tall building or skyscraper developments located near to an airport or airbase we have developed a tool to initially assess whether it will infringe any protected airport imaginary surfaces (sometimes known as zoning surfaces). We call it the Obstruction Assessment, and it can be used to assess projects worldwide using either ICAO Annex 14, UK CAA CAP 168, UK Military or FAA Part 77.
