About Aurora Melbourne Central

Located on the northern edge of Melbourne’s central business district, Aurora Melbourne Central will become the city’s second tallest building upon completion. Constructed as part of a building boom which brought an influx of residential units into the traditionally commercial city core, Aurora Melbourne Central was positioned above Melbourne Central station and was designed to take advantage of the transit oriented location while offering a diverse range of housing options split between traditional residences and serviced units.

The building is composed entirely of a reinforced concrete building structure utilizing an outrigger system with a central core and perimeter columns arraigned to maximize apartment layout flexibility while avoiding costly transfer columns where floor plates transition between residential and parking uses. Below grade, a pad footing foundation was utilized instead of drilled piles due to the adjacent subterranean structure of the Melbourne Central station, to which the building is directly linked through a pedestrian connection.
