An all-electric, very low energy 20 apartment building with 3 retail spaces. Based on the Nightingale model for triple bottom line sustainability, Six Degrees’ first Nightingale development makes use of a small land remnant close to Fairfield train station, located on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. Quality shared communal amenity? Yes. Car parking? No. Simple.
