The Soleil is a residential skyscraper located in Brisbane in Australia. The tower rises to 234 m for 74 floors and is the tallest tower in Brisbane. under construction, the building will be finish in the end of 2011. It contains 25 floors of serviced apartments and 43 floors of private residential apartments. In total there is 464 apartments. It is situated on a relatively small 1500 m² corner site with rear access from Arch Lane. The slender building will house 10 levels of carpark which required one of the biggest excavations in Brisbane's history. Retail space for cafes and restaurants is provided across three levels. The first building design for the site was rejected by the Brisbane City Council. This design was described as appalling and raised traffic congestion impacts. In late June 2008 a new design was submitted to the council and approved. Architect : DBI Design (Pty Ltd).
