Sydney’s Central Park will be Australia’s greenest urban village, housing its own on-site tri-generation plant. This energy source will supply electricity, heating, and cooling using “green transformers” powered by natural gas. The project features rooftop gardens, green walls, solar panels, and smart-metering systems, as well as the biggest membrane bioreactor (MBR) recycled water facility in the world.
Architects, designers, and landscape experts from Sydney, London, Paris, and Copenhagen pooled their talent to create the mixed-use development. When completed next year, 30,000 square meters of parks and terraces will integrate 250 species of native and exotic plants lodged between floors.
The hovering cantilever of penthouses includes motorized mirrors that capture sunlight and direct the rays down onto Central Park’s gardens.
