The Harmony is a stunning 17-storey high-rise mixed-use residential and commercial building located in the popular Haymarket, Chinatown area of Sydney. The development was built in 2003 on the site of the old Her Majesty’s Theatre. It now houses luxurious apartments with sought after features such as an indoor heated swimming pool, spa, sauna, gymnasium, games room and 24hour concierge.
In 2017 the Harmony’s Owners Corporation made a conscious commitment to reduce the impact of the property on the environment by reducing water and energy consumption. Harmony residents were encouraged to actively participate in the building’s numerous green projects to help make a positive impact on the environment.
An ambitious target was set to reduce energy by 10% and water use by 25% by 2020. STM Northern Sydney Senior Community Manager, Patrick Rush, has managed Harmony for over 5 years and is extremely proud to say not only were those impressive targets achieved, but the residents absolutely smashed them.
“The goal now for the Owners Corporation is to maintain savings while continuing to identify new opportunities for further savings. This will include educating residents of the existence and benefits of energy saving schemes.
We’ll implement updated signage around the common property promoting recycling and energy saving strategies to continue enticing resident participation,” said Patrick.
