Midtown Centre – Architectural First in Adaptive Reuse

In an architectural first in Australia, the Midtown Centre was developed through the amalgamation of two existing office buildings into a high quality A Grade commercial office building; that is setting Australia’s new benchmark for asset re-purposing, sustainability, health and wellness.

Amalgamating two existing office buildings via a green seam is estimated to be 231% more environmentally friendly through adaptive reuse of the structure, compared with a demolish and new build approach. Achieved carbon savings of roughly 11,000 metric tonnes per year (concrete and steel).

The construction methodology allowed for a 38% carbon emission reduction versus’ a new build, with 90% of the demolished materials being recycled. The embedded carbon savings means the Property runs carbon neutral (net zero emissions) for over 4 years.
