Sustainable shopping centre to open in Melbourne

The Burwood Brickworks site in Melbourne's east will soon transform into the world's most sustainable shopping centre; thanks to Frasers property Australia. The corporation has announced plans to renovate the site East of Melbourne into a sustainable; green and eco-friendly shopping mall with a Rooftop Farm. Joost Bakker; a florist; an eco pioneer and also a designer is working with Frasers Property as a creative consultant. He will be in charge of revamping the 2000 m2 rooftop into a urban farm- restaurant hybrid. The corporation is seeking passionate businesses to take on the tenancy and operate at the cutting edge location. According to Bakker; the area would have a garden like vibe while also having dozens of solar panels. All organic waste of the building would be mulched for the farm to cultivate plants like cucumbers; lemon grass and herbs . The rest of the building would also be built in a sustainable fashion. For example; the concrete is majorly made of recycled content and the entire building is built using non-toxic materials. It is expected that the building will achieve the Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification where it would have zero carbon footprint; producing more water and electricity then it consumes.
