As part of The Tapestry Project, WOBO has been conceived, designed and built with sustainability at its heart.

The entire project is 100 per cent renewable powered and features leading energy efficiency initiatives.

Renewable power generation and future-focused energy management minimise the precinct’s carbon footprint, while rainwater harvesting and high-efficiency fittings work towards a water neutral space.

Orb Property partnered with Ross Harding, who is one of Australia’s leading innovators in urban sustainability, to deliver WOBO, with an aim to represent a new generation of smarter, greener and more practical places to live.

The Tapestry Project is set to feature rooftop solar PV power as well as a state of the art Organic Energy Plant.

Residences will include smart home technology, with automated heating and cooling, while the entire precinct will benefit from electric vehicle share cars, electric share bikes and waste-free retail and hospitality.

Designed by leading architects Fender Katsalidis, WOBO combines New York style warehouse living with the unmistakably warm feeling of home.

Drawing inspiration from the industrial fabric of the area, a striking articulated brick podium creatively re-uses materials from the former factory site.

The soaring upper floors are a contrast of steel and glass, with bold accents  of living green and unrivalled city aspects

The raw materiality continues inside, with recycled brickwork greeting residents in the lobby and exposed concrete ceilings set high inside the apartments. Above it all, a rooftop terrace, complete with outdoor dining, a firepit and views to the city, Royal Park and Docklands.
