Aspire Parramatta (also referred to as Aspire Tower[1] or simply Aspire[3]) 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.[4]

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.[5][6] However, in late August 2014, the supertall project was cancelled after issues emerged with aviation authorities.[4] 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.[3]
