Melbourne, the second largest city in Australia, is home to 602 completed high-rise buildings.[1] The tallest building in the city is Eureka Tower, standing at 297 metres.[2] Completed in 2006, the building overtook 120 Collins Street, which stands at 265 metres, as Melbourne’s tallest structure.[3][4] Eureka Tower was the tallest residential building in the world until surpassed by Ocean Heights and the HHHR Tower in Dubai;[5] it is now currently the 14th tallest apartment building in the world.[6]

As of February 2015, the entire city has 31 buildings that rise at least 150 m in height, more than any other city in Australia.[7] Skyscrapers in Melbourne have a long and illustrious history. The APA Building (Australian Building) was one of Australia’s first skyscrapers and the third tallest building in the world.[8] Completed in 1889, it was built in the Queen Ann style popular in Victorian Australia. The treatment of rooftop levels is said to have anticipated the skyscraper race of New York City and Chicago.[9][10] Melbourne was one of the first cities in Australia to go through a high-rise boom after Sydney, with over 50 high-rise buildings constructed between the 1970s-1990s.[11][12] In 1986, the Rialto Towers became the tallest building in Australia as well as the Southern Hemisphere. Five years later 120 Collins street took the title until 2005. The 2000s saw over 20 high-rise structures completed during the decade including the Eureka Tower, Australia’s second tallest building. The 2010s have continued this feat, with what's been described as the "Manhattanization" of Melbourne.[13] Since the beginning of the decade, the city has been experiencing a high-rise construction boom;[14][15] of buildings expected to reach 150 metres (or above) in height, 10 are in construction phase, over 15 approved, and 15 proposed – more than any other city in Australia.[7][1] Of those under construction, Australia 108 will be the tallest; reaching 317 metres in height, it will become the tallest building in Melbourne upon completion in 2019, and the tallest building to roof in Australia.

The central business district skyline is broken down into two distinct sections: the east and west, divided by the Swanston Street.[16] The tallest building on the eastern side of the skyline is the 120 Collins Street, while the tallest on the western side is the Rialto Towers and Bourke Place. Significant new skylines are emerging outside of the CBD at Southbank and the new Docklands precinct–an urban renewal project in Melbourne’s west.
