Offshore marketing of Melbourne's tallest building, Australia 108, on Southbank Boulevard, is underway through Knight Frank Singapore.

At 319 metres it will be the tallest block in the southern hemisphere.

There will be 1,105 apartments in the complex, located up to its 100th level.

Property Observer understands it has a 2019 estimated completed date.

Singaporean developer Aspial bought the Australia 108 site in Southbank which has building approvals from the Victorian Planning Minister Matthew Guy.

They paid $42.3 million in January for 70 Southbank Boulevard with its permit for 312-metre tower design by architects Fender Katsalidis

The southern hemisphere’s tallest building, Australia 108 will stand at 319 metres — 25 metres higher than the Eureka Tower.

The name stems from a previous mooted incarnation when it was set to be 108 stories high.

Aspial began as a single-store jeweller in 1970 to become a major retailer, financial services business and property group.
