ABOUT this project
Black River Park (BRP) business complex in Observatory was chosen as the new home for the GBCSA after a stringent site selection process. BRP has green principles that are aligned with the GBCSA’s ambitions, and choosing the right location helps to meet important green goals, particularly within the transport, energy, and materials categories of Green Star SA. We started our mission to find a site that would fit our stringent green criteria. The building itself is a repurposed old warehouse, meeting the preference for a recycled building. The mix of amenities within the park, including a coffee shop, canteen and café, gym and physiotherapist, salon, spa, and car wash, encourages walking within the park. It is very close to public transport nodes, major road networks, and in close proximity to both the airport, and the city centre. All waste is sorted on site, with recycling managed by a contractor. Energy efficiency is encouraged among all tenants, fluorescent lighting is responsibly disposed of, and non-potable water is used for landscape irrigation at BRP.
