Light House Melbourne (also simply referred to as Lighthouse) is a residential skyscraper in Melbourne, Australia.

Located on 450 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne, the project was designed by Elenberg Fraser and developed by Hengyi Australia. The skyscraper rises to a height of 218 metres (715 feet) and comprises 607 apartment dwellings across 69 levels. Upon its completion in 2017, it became one of the tallest residential buildings in Melbourne.[1][2]

Proposed in 2012, the skyscraper received planning approval by then-Planning Minister Matthew Guy later that year;[3] and in 2014, Guy approved an amendment to the plans which would see extra height and floors added to the development.[4][5][6] Construction on the project commenced in May 2015, before topping-out in February 2017. The project was completed later in 2017.[2]
