88 George Street, The Rocks

This six level building with commercial and retail space was Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authorities first major initiative since announcing its sustainability strategy.

The building’s upgrade had a project focus on waste minimisation and energy efficiency and upon completion, 88 George became the first State heritage listed building to achieve an Australian excellence rating or 5 Star Green Star Office Design rating which set a new benchmark for heritage refurbishments by both government and the private sector.
