Explore our portfolio to learn more about our approach to sustainable development and how we can help shape a more sustainable future. We have showcased some of our most exciting and sustainable real assets projects from around the world. Our mission is to create modern, state-of-the-art real assets that are not only visually stunning but also environmentally conscious. Our case studies demonstrate how we have implemented innovative, sustainable practices across a range of projects, from modern office spaces to smart city infrastructure and residential complexes.
The Louise | Brussels | Belgium
PATRIZIA is in the middle of redeveloping the iconic 1960s Brussels landmark, The Louise, into a state-of-the-art modern office space, which will be finished by the end of 2023.
The Louise was specifically designed to transform the building into an optimal workspace for modern times and has taken the lead in incorporating sustainable practices throughout the renovation process.
The new office tower will be a net carbon-neutral building. Retaining the majority of the superstructure will allow CO₂ savings of around 8,500 tons, which equates to a 50% CO₂ saving compared to the average for new office buildings of the same size. Stripped out materials are sent for recycling rather than to landfill, saving a further 1,500 tonnes of carbon emissions.
Sustainable and non-porous materials will feature throughout the interior design. Rainwater will be collected from all roofs and terraces, and the building will include an integrated water recycling system. Furthermore, indigenous flora species and insect hotels will create biodiversity zones, adding greenery and life to the work environment.

FIVE | Prague | Czech Republic
The sustainable landmark asset five in prague was developed in 2017 and connects preserved historic elements with new architecture.
The former tram depot was developed into a sustainable office building. It received an award for the best office development and green building of 2017 in the Central and Eastern European Real Estate Quality Awards (CEEQA) competition. The building has highest ESG standards such as LED lighting, occupancy sensors, daylight sensors, and has a LEED Platinum certification.
Furthermore, the building uses the app Sharry, which tenants can use to search for available parking spaces, book the roof terrace or meeting points within the building. An energy audit has been carried out in 2022 to further promote the sustainability efforts of this building.
Verulam Point | St Albans | UK
A phased refurbishment project for an office building constructed in the early 1990s, with an epc rating of d, as tenant leases come to expiry over a two-year period.
The first two floors were refurbished in 2022, replacing all existing machinery and equipment with sustainable upgrades, including the installation of LED lighting and a new VRF heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. The refurbished space has an EPC rating of A and both floors have been let to strong tenants at record high rental levels for the local market.
The remaining office space will be refurbished in 2023 alongside a new reception, tenant break-out space, five new showers, a locker room, secure bicycle storage, and six EV charging points.
Connexin is an innovative and disruptive technology company specialising in building and operating award-winning smart city infrastructure to support the internet of things (iot).
Connexin’s IoT solutions have a direct impact on the conservation of the environment, with services that allow cities to manage their resources more efficiently, examples include:
- Utility smart meters: Tackling water and electricity leakages and encouraging reduction in consumption by the public.
- Smart Streetlighting: Cities energy consumption can be reduced by circa 60% through the retrofit of traditional lights into LED. In addition to the dimming capabilities and remote control the cities reduce consumption by a further ~20%.
- Smart Waste management: Enables local authorities to optimise the waste collection routes, reducing the amount of kilometres covered which leads to lower petrol usage and a reduction in CO2 emissions (circa 60-70% reduction).
- Air quality control: Proactive monitoring of air quality to improve wellbeing of citizens.
Mortons Lane Wind Farm | Victoria | Australia
The mortons lane wind farm consists of 13 x 1.5 mw goldwind gw82 wind turbines and is connected to powercor’s distribution network.
The asset generates ca. 64 GWh of clean electricity, which is enough to power more than 12,700 households in Victoria and reduce up to 68,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
Given the nature of operations, we consider the wind farm to be a climate positive asset, generating utility scale clean energy for consumption. Opportunities to improve operational efficiencies, which allow the wind farm to better generate clean energy, are under constant review.
One such opportunity may be investigating the construction of a battery on site, which would also be expected to provide financial benefits, as well as using latest technologies if a repowering were to occur, such a thermoplastic resin turbine blades, abating potential landfill items
Project Viridis | Brussels | Belgium
The property, with its modern architecture, is comprised of 5 separate buildings centered around an internal green courtyard with a shared underground parking.
It comprises of 115 residential units, 142 parking places, some retail and office space area and a children’s daycare center. Several efficiency measures are currently being implemented to improve the future carbon footprint of the project:
- Replacement of all individual gas-heating boilers by heat-pumps;
- Installation of solar panels on the roofs;
- Installation of electric car charging stations in the underground parking;
- Installation of smart meters to monitor the water and electricity consumption;
- Collection of rainwater for the maintenance of the green courtyard.
There will be easy access to public transportation in the direct vicinity of the project (e.g., metro, tram and bus lines) and the internal green courtyard will be pedestrian only. There will be green rooftops on all 5 buildings, and a green courtyard, accessible by the public and the people living and working on site.
