Century City’s Green Buildings
Century City is at the forefront of sustainable development aimed at reducing the precinct’s carbon footprint.
It is home to the first Five Star Green Star building, Aurecon which was developed by the Rabie Property Group, a second five star green star rated building, Chevron, as well as two 4-Star Green Star rated buildings - the Business Centre, Philip Morris, both of which were also developed by Rabie.
Chevron, the Business Centre and Philip Morris have all received Green Star Ratings in the v1 Design category and are also registered with the Green Building Council of South Africa aiming for Green Star ratings in the “As Built” category. All three buildings are situated in the Bridgeways precinct which is being sustainably designed in its entirety and where a R1billion Urban Square with a 900 seat conference centre, a business hotel, offices, showrooms and apartments is now also under construction.
