The Moreton was developed with a commitment for each building to exceed the required Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) level by 25 per cent.
Graham notes, ‘there is recycled water via rainwater tanks, use of solar panels, tinted glass, LED lighting, composting onsite and a communal garden where the residents can plant their own fruit and vegetables.’
This communal area also features a BBQ, a tool shed, tables and chairs and even a sand pit for young children. A walkway, between Wellington and Ocean Streets, is open for public access from 7am to 10pm.
Construction for this award winner took just 25 months. And it’s a measure of the skill of the builders, architects and designers that the development complements Scarba House so well.
‘The new buildings reflect what you see in the streets of Bondi,’ Graham says.
‘The designers spotted the context and framed the heritage house perfectly’.
He says that Mirvac is delighted with the award. The Moreton reflects the group’s mission to ‘reimagine urban life through a legacy of sustainable, connected and vibrant urban environments’.
