Contractor Multiplex has topped out Hengyi Pacific’s $170M residential tower in Melbourne’s CBD.

The 70-storey Light House, designed by architects Elenberg Fraser, will incorporate purple tinted angular aluminium panels that will change colour based on an individual’s perspective.

The tower will feature 607 apartments across 66 floors in one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations. It will also include a lobby in its ground floor, and retail space over the ground and first floors.

Amenities include a gymnasium, private dining and entertaining rooms with kitchen facilities, a 25m lap pool, 157 utomated car stacker spaces as well as 201 bicycle racks over seven podium levels.

The project will make use of rainwater harvesting, double glazing and energy efficient lighting systems. The apartments will be equipped with WELS rated water efficient fixtures and appliances and will offer natural ventilation.

Multiplex Victoria regional managing director, Graham Cottam, said: “We are delighted to achieve this milestone on Light house. There have been many challenges to get to this point with the small building footprint requiring a complex delivery and loading schedule. Our experience and upfront detailed project logistic planning enables us to counter the complexities of building towers within active CBD environments.”

Construction work on the project is expected to be complete by August 2017.
