The elliptical building at 1 Bligh Street in Sydney’s central business district is celebrating winning a high profile award and achieving its 6-Star Green Star Office As-Built rating this week.
It was recognised as the most outstanding tall building in Asia and the Australasia region by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. The building won the prestigious CTBUH 2012 Best Tall Building Award for the Asia & Australasia region – the first building in Australia to win the award. It is now in the running for the CTBUH’s 2012 Overall Best Tall Building Worldwide.
Jury panel member Werner Sobek said: “The dramatic, naturally-ventilated central atrium connects the office workers with nature at the inner depths of the plan, giving a sense of openness for the entire building.”
Meanwhile the team received confirmation of its 6-Star Green Star Office As-Built rating, confirming the sustainable credentials of this building.
1 Bligh Street is owned jointly by DEXUS Property Group, DEXUS Wholesale Property Fund and Cbus Property. Cundall provided Sustainable design, for further information on this project click here.
