Construction on the Eureka Tower began in 2002 and at the time of completion was the world’s tallest apartment tower. During its construction the towers foundation proved to be a challenge due to the proximity to the Yarra River and geological conditions of the site. To overcome these challenges over 240 foundation piles were strategically built 20-40 metres into the ground to provide the strong foundation for the 297m high building.
Located on the southern banks of the Yarra River, Eureka is perfectly positioned for 360 degree, floor-to-ceiling views encompassing Melbourne’s CBD, sports precinct, Port Phillip Bay, Docklands and everything in between. Come by day for brilliant views extending to the Dandenong ranges, and by night to see the spectacular Melbourne skyline nightscape. Skydeck 88 is the only observation deck in the world that can thrill you with ‘The Edge’ – a glass cube which projects 3 metres out from the building – with you in it – suspended almost 300 metres above the ground!
