18 April 2013 — Grocon will place its Pixel building on sale from Monday, 22 April.
The commercial office development, in Melbourne’s Carlton, has been touted as the most sustainable in Australia, achieving a six star Green Star with a perfect score of 105 credits for design and 104 credits for as built.
Last year, it also achieved the world’s highest LEED rating and score from the US Green Building Council.
Grocon and Umow Lai are now finalising a BREEAM submission (UK rating) seeking to achieve the highest score to date using the tool.
Grocon chief executive officer Daniel Grollo said he was hoping that any purchaser would “share our values in cutting edge innovation and sustainability”.
“Many of the discoveries in building design and technology have been successfully transferred to our other developments,” he added.
Grocon’s national executive design manager David Waldren said Pixel was an iconic building for the company, “both from its innovation in design and construction as well as its industry leading green credentials”.
The building features four levels of office space and a rooftop garden, housing wind turbines and photovoltaic panels to power the building.
The panelised façade is based on aesthetics and science, allowing maximum daylight, shade, views and glare control.
Water use within the building is also minimised by being used and treated three times over.
The building will be marketed through CB Richard Ellis agents Josh Rutman and Tom Tuxworth with a price tag of $6 million to $7 million.
