443 Queen St receives 6 Star Green Star rating

443 Queen St receives a 6 Star Green Star certified rating from Green Building Council of Australia

Brisbane development 443 Queen St has been awarded Australia’s first 6 Star Green Star – Design & As Built Version 1.2 Design Review certified rating for a residential tower by the Green Building Council of Australia.

Designed in association with WOHA Architects and brought to life by Probuild Constructions for Cbus Property, 443 Queen St is known as a ‘Queenslander home in the sky’ and the state’s first truly subtropical apartment tower due to its low energy, sustainable design and response to the local climate.

Radically different from standard residential towers which require mechanical ventilation, artificial light and contain sealed access corridors, 443 Queen St has naturally lit and ventilated spaces, and ‘arrival gardens’ at every level. The building has been configured to shade from summer sun and to capture winter sun and the cooling breezes that sweep through our city, reducing the building’s energy consumption by an estimated 60 percent.
