Sandton may soon be home to the newest 6 Green Star Rated Building in South Africa – the highest possible Green Star rating currently held by only three buildings. The Green Star Office Design Ratings are awarded by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) which promotes sustainable building practices and projects.
The developers of this property, The Brydens Property Group, are aiming to attain Six Star Green Rating for Block F at Upper Grayston Office Park which is due for completion in September. This triple-A grade Green Star Rated office park, features solar-powered geysers, geo-thermal air-conditioning, motion detector-triggered fluorescent lighting, and places electricity usage restrictions upon tenants. The office park, now entering Phase 4, was just recently acquired by Tower Property Fund. Upper Grayston Office Park, located in the heart of Sandton is supremely positioned off Grayston Drive and within Close proximity to the M1 highway’s Katherine Street off ramp.
The Green Building Council of South Africa awarded six new buildings with Green Star Rating in the month of June, representing the growing trend among commercial property tenants to seek Green Star Rated buildings, due to a number of factors including the high cost of electricity, making Green Buildings a more attractive and sustainable option.
ANVIL Property Smith, also situated at Upper Grayston Office Park, is a member of the Green Building Council of South Africa. ANVIL has a number of Green Star Rated buildings on offer for tenants. For more information, please visit www.anvilproperty.co.za or call 087 234 8000.
