Tour Summary:

As the first retail development in the world to target the Living Building Challenge® (LBC®) certification, Frasers Property Australia’s Burwood Brickworks is on track to be the world’s most sustainable shopping center. Considered as the most rigorous green-building standard in the market, the LBC® goes beyond a checklist of current best practices to rate buildings based on a series of performance goals and empower project teams to find creative design solutions.

A Living Building is one that gives more than it takes, leaves a positive legacy on the site it occupies, and operates efficiently. The Brickworks is naturally powered, with all electricity consumed sourced from renewable resources, with the surplus generation going back into the grid, complete with an urban rooftop farm. Aside from undertaking Living Building Certification, the Burwood Brickworks is a quality center that offers an abundance of wellbeing benefits for those who use it. Don’t miss this virtual tour of Burwood Brickworks, which defies both the architectural and cultural expectations of the retail arena.
