The world’s most sustainable shopping centre the former brickworks site is an industry game changer on the global retail stage.

Located in Melbourne’s Burwood East and over 25,000sqm in size, this ambitious retail development achieved Living Building Challenge® Petal Certification, a global building certification measuring seven key performance categories across design, water and energy use, ecological values, building materials, equity and health and happiness. Burwood Brickworks is also one of the first Green Star Design & As-Built v1.1. 6 Star retail buildings.

A world class destination, the retail centre includes a large proportion of food and beverage outlets, specialty shopping space including cinemas, a dining precinct as well as street level and basement car parking and medical centre to meet the demand of the increasingly populated area.

A prominent feature is the large rooftop garden, allowing natural daylight and fresh air to all occupied areas of the centre. Other key sustainability drivers include; exceptional energy reduction; mixed-mode ventilation; capture, treatment and re-use of water; on-site solar generation; urban agriculture in the form of a large rooftop farm as well biophilic design integrated throughout the building.
