Barangaroo South’s Tower 3 has gained a 6 Star Green Star – Office Design v3 rating, joining companion building Tower 2, which received the same rating last May.

The towers are part of International Towers Sydney, the core of the Barangaroo South development, which is being marketed as an upcoming financial and professional hub for the Asia Pacific region.

Tower 3, which stands at 38 storeys with 79,281 square metres of net lettable area, has locked down Lend Lease and KPMG as tenants, who will occupy the building from 2016.

“By 2030, almost 60 per cent of the world’s population will live in urban areas and we are planning for this by creating the next generation of sustainable property and infrastructure solutions,” Lend Lease chief executive, property Tarun Gupta said.

Barangaroo is also aiming to be Australia’s first large-scale carbon neutral community, and is registered for a Green Star – Communities rating.
