Does any one know the story behind that, what seems eternal, vacant lot behind this development? The open wound on Pier St. opposite Workspace.

Come to think of it; there's a bunch of them. 20 St Georges Tce. seems the most incongruous.

This architect has definitely taken some design queues from Erno Goldfinger's famous brutalist Trellick and Balfron Towers in London:

Sales video. It doesn't look any better in 3D, unfortunately.

It got approval last week. The sites to the south will undoubtedly be redeveloped in the future so I'm not too worried. I'd love the podium level south-west corner apartment. The interiors are pretty nice.

Looks OK. Starting to get some height north of the railway line. Would love to see even higher apartment towers in this area.

Shared electric cars, bicycles in new green Perth apartment hub

http://www.perthnow.com.au/realestat...-1227124162365

DEVELOPMENT approval has just been granted for a new state-of-the-art “green” apartment complex at 78 Stirling St, Perth, that will be the first to offer communal electric cars and bikes.

The complex will also feature three-storey high living green walls in what could be Perth’s “greenest” development to date.

The inner-city development, Verdant, has been designed with a sustainability focus, say the developers Stirling Capital.

Tenants will not only have access to the communal electric cars, they can also opt for pedal power with the provision of 20 bicycles.

Stirling Capital director Luke Reinecke said the sustainable opportunities inherent in the location inspired the design team to look for innovations that would set the project apart.

“The location of Verdant automatically reduces a future resident’s carbon footprint as it has a Walk Score of 95 and Transit Score of 100 out of a possible 100,” said Mr Reinecke.

Designed by MJA architects, the complex will have 136 one and two-bedroom apartments across 19 levels.

Other green features include solar panels and a solar-boosted central hot water plant servicing all apartments.

There will also be cross-ventilation to reduce the need for airconditioning and energy-efficient lighting and water fittings.

Mr Reinecke said Verdant will be the first development in Perth to offer the communal electric cars.

He said residents will be able to book the two electric cars on a short-term basis and at short notice. Residents will also be given the opportunity to install electric-car charging stations.

MJA architect Matt Middleton said he had seen an increased focus on sustainable building in Perth.

“The market is becoming much more discerning and selective with regards to the carbon footprint of new buildings,” Mr Middleton said.

“But there is also a strong push from local governments to actively enforce environmentally sustainable initiatives in new developments, which encourages developers and architects to have a greater focus on the sustainable measures in their buildings.”

Stirling Capital development manager Matthew Chau said construction of Verdant would start in mid-2015 and residents would move in by early 2018.

Mr Reinecke said the apartments would appeal to young professionals.

“We think sustainability is a huge concern for many people in Perth,” he said.

“Buildings of all kinds have seen a greater incorporation of environmentally sustainable initiatives in recent years.”

Green Building Council of Australia chief executive Robin Mellon said sustainable building was less expensive than imagined.

“The World Green Building Council has found that people over-estimate the ‘green premium’ on a building ,” he said.

“While many may be reluctant to pay more for green-certified homes at the moment, it’s almost certain that they will pay less for non-rated, inefficient and unhealthy homes in years to come.”


PROJECT DETAILS


Apartments will be priced from $368,000 for a one bedroom and from $488,000 for two bedrooms.

Two share cares and "solar boosted" (what?) hot water does not make a 136 apartment development anything close to 'green'. The 6.2 NatHERS rating they advertise but don't explain falls into the "good but not outstanding" category. We've gotten to the point where it's more of a marketing tool than something of substance, and that really needs to change if we want to give an advantage to developments that are truly environmentally sustainable in the way they treat water and power use, manage waste and materials and construction processes.

Considering 6 stars us the minimum now required I'm not exactly impressed with 6.2 either, seems to be more bluster than substance but ultimately I haven't looked at these plans in any detail

Urbicus solar booster just means that there is solar hpt water backed up by gas/electric when the solar isn't enough. Pretty common, been around for decades

I'm just wondering if it's more empty greenwashing. Can they hook a few SHW systems into a network that's 95% gas heated and call it solar boosted? Considering the number of residences vs available surface area for photovoltaics I find it pretty hard to believe.

How hard would it be to build a building like this that was actually genuinely green and what would you need to do?

Makes me think of the apartment block in west perth that had a bank of Solar hot water systems installed on the roof around 12 years ago? I wonder how effective they are in this type of environment
