Premier Tower is mixed-use skyscraper currently under construction on Spencer Street, in Melbourne, Australia.

Designed by Elenberg Fraser, plans for a 294-metre (965 ft) tall building with 90-storeys were initially proposed in 2014; however, both the height and the number of levels of the project were reduced in later plans, which were submitted to the Department of Planning. In May 2015, Planning Minister Richard Wynne approved the development, which now consists of a 249–metre high residential and hotel skyscraper of 78 levels. When built, Premier Tower will become one of the tallest buildings in Melbourne. According to Elenberg Fraser, the design of the building was in part inspired by the music video of "Ghost" by Beyoncé.

Early construction on the project commenced in January 2017. The skyscraper is developed by the Fragrance Group, and will cost AUD$350 million to construct.
