  • There is 16,000sqm of retail area over five levels situated within the podium of One Central Park. Situated around a central atrium and glass roof, the Ground and First Floors of retail will host local fashion and accessories as well as technology, while Level Two and Three comprise restaurants, bars and entertainment. Level Four houses the world-class 'Urban Wellbeing' health concept which includes a 25 metre in-ground swimming pool situated on a garden terrace.

  • With the concept of 'parkland' at the heart of the precinct development, Atelier Jean Nouvel Architects in collaboration with the botanist Patrick Blanc and PTW have designed and delivered this biomechanical mixed use development with extensive vertical and horizontal gardens. 30m high Hydroponic green walls, modular composite metal clad rotomold polyethelene hydroponic planter boxes with stainless steel latticed tensioned vine climbing cables, a 40m cantilevering sky garden/heliostat reflector and green roofs make this building's envelope truly unique and unprecedented in the international architectural arena.

  • Exclusive to Tower East Sky Penthouse residents [levels 29-33] is access to the 'Sky Garden' via the red 'Sky Bridge' on level 29. Suspended approximately 100m above ground floor and cantilevering out 20m from the West facade of the East Tower, the Sky Garden offers a dramatic green spatial experience at altitude.

  • Cantilevering a further 20m from the South West corner of the Sky Garden, 94m above ground level the heliostat reflector frame carries approximately 500sqm of mirrors. These fixed mirrors are arranged into several different clusters designed to specifically target pre-determined areas at ground and podium levels across the Central Park precinct.

    The 40 sun tracking heliostat mirrors measuring 4sqm located on L17 roof of the West Tower 64.5m above ground floor are designed to follow the suns path throughout the day and reflect the light up onto the fixed mirrors on the underside of the reflector frame and down on to the areas below, enhancing the area overshadowed by East and West Towers to the south of One Central Park.

    One Central Park achieved a 5 Star Green Star rating for design under both the Multi Unit Residential and Retail Centre rating system. This achievement remains unusual in high density apartment living. Rainwater is collected on the rooftops and via the precinct's water recycling plant and re-used in irrigation for the vertical gardens. One Central Park's titling structure keeps operational and lifecycle costs affordable for all residents. It is strata title, with a Building Management Committee.
