1270 feet I think (for those of you still working in the old money) Australia's first super-tall proposal (well actually, the first "proposal" in about 20 years).
This was unexpected - Designed by Eureka's architects (Fender Katsalidis) a few metres away - this was actually the site of a proposed 220m tower - now with a whole lot more.
Planned super skyscraper in Southbank would dominate Melbourne's skyline

EXCLUSIVE: THE tallest building in the southern hemisphere - a mammoth 388m skyscraper - is planned for Melbourne in a development that will radically alter the city skyline.
Designs for the huge Australia 108 are being finalised and, if approved, will feature 600 apartments, the nation's highest hotel and restaurants seemingly floating 84 stories above the city.
The 108-storey tower, which will be the 18th-tallest building in the world, is planned to rise near the 297m Eureka Tower.
Architects Fender Katsalidis, who also built Eureka, gained planning approval for a 228m apartment building on the 70 Southbank Boulevard site in 2010, despite objections from Melbourne City Council.
But Nonda Katsalidis has super-sized his plans by adding a 288-room hotel and sky deck on top, saying the economy had strengthened and Melbourne was more confident and ready for an iconic centrepiece.
"Buildings like this change cities, they make the city more dynamic, more interesting, more exciting," he said.
One of Australia 108's most striking features will be a two-storey sky lobby which will house two restaurants and two bars, extending 9m out of the building, 84-storeys above Melbourne.
A hotel check-in and swimming pool will also appear to hang over the city, with sections of glass floor enabling visitors to see all the way to the ground in a much larger version of Eureka's Sky Deck.
Although the skyscraper is intended to dominate Melbourne's skyline, Mr Katsalidis said it would form a pair with Eureka.

Looks like some kind of observation pod between the two sticks:
