Urban Taskforce Tower Summit

August 2017

The Urban Taskforce Institute of Australia held a Tower Summit on August 18 and SJB in association with Meriton were invited to present on their relationship with towers in Australia.

Alexia Fisher, Head of Architecture at Meriton and Jonathan Tondi, Senior Associate at SJB spoke specifically about an upcoming development in Surfers Paradise. As the winner of an idea competition hosted by Meriton, SJB are designing a seriously tall tower.

The presentation focused on the economic and functional details of designing and building a tower on a small floorplate. Both Alexia and Jonathan addressed capitalising urban development, the coastal views and production and speed of construction.

The project anticipates completion in 2019.
