EY will move into 200 George Street, Sydney in January 2017.

The new skyscrapper designed by architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (FJMT) and developed by owner-contractor Mirvac, has received a 6 star rating from the Green Buildings Council of Australia.

The building has a range of sustainability features, including; triple gazed façade -  allowing high levels of natural light, high volume fresh air intake, a combination of active chilled beams and V.A.V. systems, improved air quality via use of low VOC materials and water recycling systems. 

It is the first Australian building to be fully LED lit, reducing energy consumption by 30-50% on traditional systems and also has spaces for 257 bicycles and 2 electric vehicle recharge sockets.

It is a beautiful golden shimmering tower, coupled with cutting edge sustainable design, which is an example to the world of what can be achieved.
