Carlton United Brewery site on Sydney’s Broadway plans to generate own electricity, for new 11-tower site

According to Catharine Munro, urban affairs editor, for The Sydney Morning Herald, (28/9/2007, p.5), the new owners of the Carlton United Brewery site on Broadway planned to generate their own electricity. Stanley Quek, a medical doctor from Singapore and the major shareholder of Frasers Property, said power cogeneration was one of a number of measures he was looking at to reduce the development’s greenhouse footprint. “We believe it’s worth careful consideration because the initial evidence we have is that it’s viable on the site,” Dr Quek told the Herald.

11 new towers planned: Frasers Property was to build 11 towers, with more than 1600 dwellings and 90,000 square metres of commercial and retail space on the old brewery close to Central Station. His plans follow a failed bid in the courts by student Matthew Drake-Brockman to force the State Government to introduce more stringent environmental rules on the developers of the brewery site.
