One Central Park

Located on the site of a former brewery, One Central Avenue comprised of two towers, 18 stories and 33 stories respectively, on a 5 storey retail podium as part of a 250,000sqm development plan. The towers provide 623 luxury apartments above a 5 level retail and recreation podium.

The eastern tower featured a dramatic light reflector installation, extending from the upper levels on a grand cantilever. The reflected light system incorporated an innovative system of both fixed and motorized mirrored panels, designed to capture sunlight and redirect it into the retail atrium and onto the landscaped terraces. Planter boxes, vertical vines and green walls incorporated into the facade will wrap the towers in plant life, extending the central parkland upward, growing around the building’s façade. The development provided a further five levels below ground for car parking and service vehicles as well as a central water recycling plant.

The development’s central thermal plan (trigeneration) provided heating and cooling for air conditioning and hot water requirements of this building and others within the development.
