DEXUS Property Group: 5 Martin Place, Sydney

5 Martin Place was developed by Cbus Property and DEXUS Property Group. The development sets a new benchmark for office buildings in Sydney with its clever architectural design, high-end materials and finishes, and good access to natural light and ventilation.

Frasers Property Australia: Fairwater (pictured above)

Fairwater, Frasers Property Australia's 38 hectare residential development in Blacktown, is built on an old golf course surrounded by communal outdoor areas and ecological precincts. It is the first 6-star Green Star - Communities rating to be awarded in NSW. This project represents initiatives in large-scale residential precinct development which locks in real outcomes in sustainable living for residents.

Mirvac: 275 Kent Street, Sydney

Westpac Place at 275 Kent Street is one of Australia's largest office buildings. As Westpac's head office it contains extensive office space plus a food court, child care centre and urban park. Built by Mirvac in 2015, the building was one of the first properties in Australia to achieve a 6-Star Green Star Performance rating. The rating represents World Leadership in operational management and complements the property's 5-Star NABERS energy rating.

Westpac: St. George, Barangaroo Branch

Westpac's focus on environmental solutions has resulted in the large urban renewal development at Barangaroo, Sydney. The development is the first retail fit-out in Australia to be awarded a 6-Star Green Star - Interiors rating by the Green Building Council of Australia. The fit-out design ensures water and energy consumption is minimised. All furniture and building materials in the fit-out demonstrate a reduced environmental impact over their entire lifecycle compared to standard products. Social innovations include the provision for community organisations to use the branch premises outside office hours.
