Three weeks ago, we took a look at Victoria One, the 75-story, 629-unit apartment tower being built in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. And now we get word via the Instagram photo above from Probuild that Victoria One has topped out at 452 Elizabeth street in the Central Business District.
That means hearty congratulations are in order for the Victoria One team, including Probuild, developer Golden Age Group, and design architects Elenberg Fraser.
Golden Age Group celebrated via Instagram as well:
**UPDATE: Probuild has issued a press release on the topping out:
Probuild’s Victoria One has successfully topped out as the tallest tower in the Melbourne’s CBD.
Victoria One’s structure commenced in April 2015 and after 699 working days and 18,800m3 of concrete, the level 77 slab was completed on the 23rd of November 2017.
This milestone continues the success and achievements previously set by the team after completing and handing over 232 apartments in June 2017. A further 98 apartments are to be handed over to the client before the end of 2017, which will take the total amount of completed and settled apartments to 330. Our team has been committed to delivering a high quality build, despite the complexity of this construction project.
Once completed, the project will feature 643 residential apartments, the largest car stacker in the southern hemisphere, 11.5km of façade fins and 22,500m2 of glass façade with the total weight of the structure estimated to be around 54,000 tonnes.
