An all-electric, carbon neutral building with a focus on wellbeing.

A tall, multiple storey building made of glass and concrete with various smaller buildings surrounding it.

Development summary

Occupying a 615 square metre site, the proposed 11 storey development comprises offices in the upper levels along with ground floor retail spaces, courtyard and bike facilities, a rooftop garden terrace and basement carparks.

The development features an all-electric design and energy efficient approach, including rooftop solar panels and a commitment to procure 100% renewable energy. There is also a commitment to achieve Climate Active carbon neutral certification for the base building operation by offsetting remaining emissions from refrigerants for a minimum of 10 years.

The development has demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainable design principles, targeting an ‘excellence’ rating (at least 70% score) using the Built Environment Sustainability Scorecard (BESS) tool. This includes exceeding the four mandatory category scores for water, energy, stormwater and indoor environment quality.

The project is targeting a 5.5 star NABERS Energy rating in operation and is committed to implementing a best practice metering strategy and commissioning process.

This development has planning approval and is not yet constructed (as at early 2022).
