The Republic Tower has been described in specialist and mainstream press as one of the finest buildings in Australia. The 36-storey complex contains apartments in the tower, while the podium provides café, restaurant, shopping and parking facilities. Located over, and incorporating within its design, a large ventilation stack from Melbourne’s underground railway, the podium hosts an ever-changing public billboard art display.
