Geocon will throw open the doors of Canberra’s tallest buildings this weekend, giving locals an opportunity to have a sneak peek inside the city’s impressive new glass towers.
At 100m high, the two 27-storey glass towers in Belconnen’s $1 billion Republic development now lay claim to the title of the highest residential buildings to grace Canberra’s skyline after the recent completion of Geocon’s High Society project.
“It’s pleasing to finally see people in and around the High Society towers, fulfilling our original intention for this site as a genuine mixed-use precinct where people live, work or come to meet friends and be entertained,” Geocon managing director Nick Georgalis said.
“As we edge towards settlement in the towers, some 1500 people will soon move in, complimenting the 1000 or so who are already living in Dusk and Republic.
“An open day is the perfect opportunity for people to come and see the Precinct as we hoped from concept to reality.”
High Society comprises 541 apartments and the 152-room Abode Belconnen hotel, which opened in October, as well as dining and entertainment venues.
Designed by architects Fender Katsalidis, the residential development includes studio, one-two and three-bedroom units, as well as luxury penthouse apartments.
The complex also includes a residents’ library, wine cellar and exclusive dining room, residents’ only cinema, resort-style infinity swimming pool, sauna, spa as well as a children’s playroom and observation deck with views of Canberra.
In addition, there is a rooftop sky park with barbecues and sun lounges, a shared workspace, wellness centre with a gym, concierge service, bicycle hub and car wash.
The High Society Family Open Day will be held this Saturday 28 November 28 from 10am until 4pm at the Republic Precinct, Grazier Lane, Belconnen.
