|Design and construction|
Aspire Parramatta (also referred to as Aspire Tower or simply Aspire) is a proposed high-rise skyscraper located in Parramatta, New South Wales, Australia, a centrepiece of the Parramatta Square development. The proposal is for a building more than 243 metres tall.
Originally, the building proposal was for a residential and hotel building 336 m (1,102 ft) high and over 90 storeys; and to comprise 700 residential apartments and 150 hotel rooms. However, in late August 2014, the supertall project was cancelled after issues emerged with aviation authorities. If built, it would have become the tallest building in Australia, surpassing the Gold Coast's Q1 building; and hence the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.
