In Cannes to receive the award, Architectus CEO Ray Brown said:
“It’s truly an honour for this transformative project to receive such a prestigious award. Both Architectus and Ingenhoven share a passion for sustainable design and complex urban projects of which 505 George will be an exemplar. 505 George will not only be a landmark that can be seen from afar but will also represent a commercially viable development with strong sustainable, environmental, and social credentials.”
The tower will rejuvenate George Street’s entertainment precinct, integrated within the existing surroundings it offers a great public domain. This urban approach is based on the philosophy of a well-connected public space and conceives the tower as being a ‘friendly neighbour’.
The timeless design of the building is integral to the sustainability approach, it has been designed to achieve a 6 Star Green Star rating and special attention has been given to energy use and environmental impact. All proposed facade and building materials have been chosen with respect to sustainability, durability and authenticity to create a timeless and “healthy” building.
