Four Seasons Melbourne will open in a skyscraper complex with the world’s tallest vertical garden

(CNN) — Imagine a 5.5 kilometer (3.51 mile) garden path, roughly twice the length of New York’s High Line, spanning the twisting facades of two towers, one of which rises to more than 300 meters in the sky.
It’s what will welcome visitors to STH BNK by Beulah – a new twin-tower “green skyscraper” complex planned for Melbourne that is set to include Australia’s tallest building when completed in 2028.

Even better, travelers can spend the night there when visiting the second most populous city in the country.

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced this week that Four Seasons Melbourne will occupy the upper floors of the West Tower – the shorter of the two – of this unique project.

Travelers will enter the 210-room hotel through a Sky Lobby on the 63rd floor. Although the hotel brand hasn’t disclosed how many floors it will occupy, the announcement says there will be health and wellness experiences, multiple event spaces, and a restaurant and bar on the roof.

The next Four Seasons Melbourne will have 210 rooms and will be located at the top of the West Tower.

“This project will set a new standard for luxury in Melbourne, providing guests with an exceptional Four Seasons experience in an environment that will be unmatched in this market,” said Bart Carnahan, President of Global Business Development for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, in A declaration.

Currently, the tallest hotel in the world is the J Hotel in Shanghai. It occupies the upper floors of the 632-meter Shanghai Tower.

Australia’s tallest building and gardens

Beulah’s STH BNK will set its own records.

With a staggering investment estimated at 2.7 billion Australian dollars (or $1.9 billion), it is made up of two skyscrapers.

The tallest tower will rise 365 meters above Melbourne’s Southbank district. It will rise above the 322.5 meter tall Q1 tower on the Gold Coast to claim the title of Australia’s tallest building. According to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, the second tower will be 273 meters tall.

But the design is what really sets it apart.

The new skcraper will include 12,500 square meters of public green space.

Dubbing itself the “tallest skyscraper in the world”, the facades of both skyscrapers will feature terraced tree gardens on the upper floors and fern and shrub gardens on the lower floors.

The towers, when opened, will provide 12,500 square meters of public green space, including Australia’s tallest aerial garden.

A 2,500-seat multifunctional conference and entertainment center, a 3,500 square meter international art gallery, an experiential retail space and a marketplace are also planned for the new landmark.
