Billed as the most sustainable shopping centre in the world, Burwood Brickworks is one of Frasers Property most bold projects to date. This community-scale development will feature an exciting new shopping centre, parkland and civic plaza, 15km East of Melbourne’s CBD, in the City of Whitehorse. The retail centre will include a large proportion of food and beverage outlets, plus destination and experienced-based retail.
The $115m mall will house a commercially operated urban farm on its roof, recycle rain and waste water and include a 1MW rooftop solar PV array, one of the largest in the country.
The project achieved 6 Star Green Star Design and As-Built rating and is on track to achieve Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification, the first of its kind for retail in Australia.
The mall will include the use of sustainably sourced timber and recycled bricks along with an abundance of internal and external greenery. Up to 99 per cent of construction waste will be repurposed rather than become landfill, and there is a strong focus on local, salvaged and sustainable materials.
Cundall has been providing ESD consulting services for the development, which has included initial guidance on achieving a LBC certification and also acting as the Green Star Accredited Professional (GSAP) for its Green Star rating.
