Grey Water System
Queensland’s first retail precinct to be serviced by an onsite greywater treatment plant.
Waterplay pop jets operate on a standalone recycling system ensuring water safety and quality for water play, whilst saving enough water to fill 7 Olympic swimming pools per year.
Woolworths and Harris Farm are leading the way with the imperfect fruit and vegetable range, supporting farmers and reducing food to landfill.
All retailers are encouraged to send edible excess food to Oz Harvest, providing meals for those in need and reducing food to landfill.
Organic Waste Pulping System
Our onsite system diverts food waste and compostable packaging from landfill land recycles into soils and fertilizers.
23.59 kW solar PV system on the rooftop of The Eaves generates renewable energy for public spaces.
Energy saving LEDs can be found throughout retail tenancies and public realm, with Woolworths utilising trans critical CO2 refrigeration technology to delivering significant energy savings and reduce carbon emissions.
Four electric vehicle charging stations are available in the commercial public carpark, as well as a fleet of car share vehicles and bicycle parks.
Vegetation covers 50% of the precinct
50% of the precinct is covered in vegetation to mitigate the impact of the urban heat island effect. Over 10,000 plants are growing, with native beehives in The Common and European beehives on The Eaves’ rooftop.
West Village has partnered with Bee One Third to improve biodiversity through urban beehives. The community introduced four new beehives in 2018 and a further three in 2020.
Reconnecting communities with the reality of what pollinators do for our food system, our health, and our overall well-being is its mission, and, like West Village, environmental consciousness is one of its key values.Learn More
