The Sky Tower was opened on March 3, 1997 after two and a half years of construction. The tower is constructed of reinforced, high-performance concrete.

Its 12-metre diameter shaft containing three lifts and emergency stairs is supported on eight legs based on 16 foundation piles drilled over 12m deep into the ground.

The tower is designed to withstand wind in excess of 200 km/h and resist earthquakes at a magnitude of 8.0 Richter magnitude scale.
