Green Spine by UNStudio & Cox, Melbourne, Australia
The twisty, plant-clad skyscrapers of Southbank by Beulah, a vertical mixed-use development planned for the Melbourne waterfront, have received the formal green light from Australia's Victorian State Government. Construction on the dual towers, collectively dubbed "the Green Spine", is expected to kick off next year and wrap up in 2026. Reaching 1,197 feet, the lankier of Southbank by Beulah's two skyline-redefining towers will stand as the tallest skyscraper in Australia, a country already replete with very tall buildings in addition to very big things. The shorter tower at Southbank by Beulah tops out at a still-impressive 827 feet.
