24 January 2013 — Lend Lease’s Barangaroo South project has been accepted as a pilot project for the newly released Green Star – Communities PILOT rating tool.

Green Building Council of Australia chief executive Romilly Madew said she expected Barangaroo South, part of the $6 billion Barangaroo urban regeneration development on Sydney Harbour, would become a new green icon of sustainability at the precinct scale.

Barangaroo South managing director Andrew Wilson said the Lend Lease was looking forward to testing its sustainability plans against the credit criteria and helping the GBCA to test the pilot tool on a live project.

The GBCA will now work with Lend Lease to benchmark Barangaroo South against 38 credits in the Green Star – Communities categories of liveability, economic prosperity, environment, design, governance and innovation.
