Absolutely nailing it when it comes to sustainability is the new Central Park mixed-use development in Chippendale, Sydney. Currently sporting a $2 billion price tag, the development includes a residential precinct, a recently opened shopping mall and recreation facilities.
Leading the way in Sydney for environmentally conscious and efficient design, the development has received three Green Star Ratings for the developers Frasers Property Australia and Sekisui House. Not an easy feat!
Central Park is on target to be one of Australia’s greenest and most self-sufficient mixed-use urban developments, having incorporated sustainability and environmental stewardship as fundamental principles of its planning
said Frasers CEO Guy Pahor.
Including the use of most notably hefty tri-generation energy systems, a 110 tonne heliostat mirror system which reflects light into the central atrium filling the mall naturally with the sun, and the inclusion of mirror and green walls providing air and energy, the retail aspect has been described as a “living mall” and sets a benchmark for development in Australia.
Working with creatively conscious Design Clarity, KE-ZU installed over 400 Enea Lottus timber chairs in black, green and white and black and white Vondom Moma stools in black and white – adding to the fun and imaginative space.
Head in to Central Park and check it out – it certainly is a sight worth seeing!
