Brookfield Place Tower 2 named WA development of the year

INNOVATIVE architecture, luxury finishes and ‘green’ features saw Brookfield Place Tower 2 take home one of WA’s top property awards.

It was named Western Australian Development of the Year at the 2019 Property Council of Australia/Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards last week.

“Brookfield Place Tower 2 demonstrates how contemporary, well-considered office development can create a dynamic and vibrant cultural destination enjoyed by the entire community,” Property Council WA executive director, Sandra Brewer said.

Developed by Brookfield and built by Multiplex, Brookfield Place Tower 2 reached practical completion in 2015.

The 34,000sq m office tower includes a ground floor foyer, 16 upper floors of office space, conference facilities, 110 basement parking bays and a childcare centre.

The precinct’s retail, dining and entertainment options have made Brookfield Place a go-to destination.

“As a highly visible and connected location in the heart of the city, Brookfield Place Tower 2 has attracted blue chip tenants, including Westpac, Deloitte, Multiplex and Wesfarmers,” Ms Brewer said.

“Despite challenging leasing conditions, (it) has achieved 95 per cent occupancy.”

Rider Levett Bucknall managing director Mark Bendotti said Brookfield Place Tower 2 combined innovative architecture, luxury fixtures and finishes, cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art sustainability initiatives.

“The green features, including one of Perth’s first tri-generation systems, was rewarded with a 5-star Green Star rating and acclaim as a sustainability superstar,” he said.

Brookfield Place Tower 2 is in the running for the SAS International Award for Best Office Development and WSP Award for Best Sustainable Development – New Buildings at the national awards, which will be held in Sydney on Friday May 17.
