When it was constructed in 2006 Melbourne’s tallest building claimed to be the world’s tallest residential building. The Q1 in Surfers Paradise also claimed this title (Eureka Tower’s roof is higher than the Q1, but the Q1 is taller if measured to the top of its spire). The 297m-high (38m taller than the Trump World Tower in New York), 91-storey Eureka Tower has an observation deck on the 88th floor with stunning views of Melbourne, which is the highest public observation point in the southern hemisphere. The Edge is a unique feature of the tower (with an additional $12 admission charge); this is a glass cube that projects three metres outside the building – with you in it – allowing you to see the city through the glass floor.
