Brisbane Skytower (nicknamed Bon Bon) is a 270-metre (890 ft) skyscraper under construction at 222 Margaret Street in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The 90-storey residential tower will become Brisbane's tallest building when completed.

Brisbane Skytower will be one of two buildings in the 111+222 development; the other being a 42-storey, five-star Westin hotel at 111 Mary Street which was sold in September 2015 to the Felicity Hotel Group and now known as Mary Lane.[2]

The residential tower will include 1,138 one, two and three-bedroom apartments as well as sub-penthouse and penthouse apartments. A recreation deck, on the 89th floor, will feature Australia’s highest infinity-edge swimming pool.[3] An eight-level basement car park is included in the project, containing a total of 980 spaces.[4]

Two skyscrapers proposed for the site by the Billbergia Group and AMP Capital with heights of 270 and 131 metres (886 and 430 ft), were approved by Brisbane City Council in October 2014.

Hutchinson Builders were appointed to construct the project in early 2016. The towers are expected to be completed in 2018-19.[5][6]

The project is being developed by Billbergia and AMP Capital with US funds giant Invesco providing debt funding.

The site was the location for the cancelled Vision Brisbane project.
