One of Australia’s newest residential towers has been declared the fifth best skyscraper in the world by an international jury of architecture experts. One Central Park at Sydney’s Broadway, developed by Frasers Property Group and Sekisui House, was chosen from a pool of 300 high rise buildings completed in 2013 all over the world. “It’s a huge honour for the country generally,” says Paul Lowe, sales director for Frasers. “It will be an enduring tribute to the ingenuity and work of Australians.” The only buildings to beat it were London’s The Shard, DC Tower 1 in Austria, Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort in Huzhou, China, and the Ca yan Tower in Dubai, UAE. The two-tower, 623-apartment One Central Park features a massive cantilevered sky garden extending from level 29 of its taller 34-storey East tower and has the largest en masse vertical gardens in the world: over 1100sqm of the exterior facades of the two towers containing 35,000 plants and 350 different species.
