Located in the City of Sydney’s trendy suburb of Alexandria you’ll find The Hudson, a beautiful award-winning warehouse conversion comprising four buildings with 272 apartments, managed by STM.
As with most inner-city suburbs, Alexandria locals are typically passionate about city living, and The Hudson residents are no different. This includes being environmentally friendly, pet friendly, and neighbour friendly. In short, The Hudson is a sought-after community because it is just that. It is a real, fully engaged community with enthusiastic committees.
So when STM Regional Manager, Lynne Kopellos, presented sustainable solutions to them, they were extremely supportive and receptive to these, and eager to implement energy and cost saving initiatives for the greater good of the community.
Their achievements did not go unnoticed. In early 2021 The Hudson won the prestigious City of Sydney Smart Green Apartment Award, and Lynne Kopellos won the Smart Green Strata Manager of the Year Award.
The Hudson achieved energy cost savings of $40,000/year and savings approaching 300 tonnes of greenhouse gases/year. Other initiatives undertaken includes:
|These savings were used as quantifiable future proofing methods for investment purposes. Owners understand these activities are attractive to many buyers and, rather than being a financial burden, can be treated as adding significant value to the properties.|
