14 June 2012 – The six star Green Star 1 Bligh Street in Sydney has been recognised as the most outstanding tall building in Asia and the Australasia region by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

The building (pictured), co-owned by DEXUS Property Group, DEXUS Wholesale Property Fund and Cbus Property, won the prestigious CTBUH 2012 Best Tall Building Award for the Asia & Australasia region – the first building in Australia to win the award. It is now in the running for the CTBUH’s 2012 Overall Best Tall Building Worldwide.

Jury panel member Werner Sobek said: “The dramatic, naturally-ventilated central atrium connects the office workers with nature at the inner depths of the plan, giving a sense of openness for the entire building.”
