Sustainability and urban greening have been at the forefront of urban design for quite some time now, so it's refreshing to see boundaries being pushed with every new apartment launch.

This week Beulah announced the grand opening of their first CBD tower, Paragon, which has been masterfully adorned with a myriad of flora and fauna at its heart.

Beulah employed renowned landscape architect Paul Bangay to collaborate with Fender Katsalidis to deliver the finished tower that graces the city skyline today. 

Paragon features Australia's first indoor forest, spanning three entire levels. The carefully curated greenery includes mature trees that create a leafy canopy, climbing vertical gardens, grassy spaces, and water features.

To support Beulah's sustainability efforts, the development also features the most significant integration of vertical solar, spanning 158 square metres. This will both help reduce the building carbon footprint and contribute towards subsidising owners corporation fees.

The tower stands 48 stories tall and is home to 277 luxury apartments. With stunning vistas surrounding the building, each floor has been designed with limited density to optimise each residence's number of vantage points.
