1 Bligh recognised amongst world’s best

1 Bligh Street, Sydney has been recognised as the most outstanding new tall building in Asia and the Australasia region by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).

1 Bligh Street was recognised with the prestigious CTBUH 2012 Best Tall Building Award for the Asia & Australasia region – the first building in Australia to win the award.

The award places 1 Bligh among the standout buildings of Asia with previous winners in the region including the Guangzhou International Finance Center (Guangzhou, China) in 2011, Pinnacle @ Duxton (Singapore) in 2010 and Linked Hybrid Building (Beijing, China) in 2009.

1 Bligh is now in the running for the CTBUH’s 2012 Overall Best Tall Building Worldwide which will be announced in October this year.

The CTBUH is the world’s leading body in the field of tall buildings and the recognised source of information on tall buildings internationally. The organisation is supported by architecture, engineering, planning, and development and construction professionals.

Werner Sobek, a member of the jury panel, said of 1 Bligh Street: “The dramatic, naturally-ventilated central atrium connects the office workers with nature at the inner depths of the plan, giving a sense of openness for the entire building.”

The property has been awarded a 6 Star Green Star Office Design v2 certified rating and is designed to achieve a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating – Australian and world best practice.
