Cbus Property has landed one of Australia's biggest developments -- the $700m+ 1 Bligh Street project in the CBD.

Adrian Pozzo, chief executive, became a partner with Dexus Property Trust in developing a tower designed to set new standards in Green technology.

Cbus Property's initial investment is $60m -- its contribution to the cost incurred so far in the project. It will invest another $150m in construction and other costs before the project is completed in 2011.
