The developments set to drastically shape Canberra’s landscape

5 January 2017

As Canberrans await more information about the transformation of our major corridor, Northbourne Avenue, a number of suburban hubs are already bracing for major shake-ups.

A range of precincts and towers are set to drastically change our city’s landscape in the coming years with the lodgement of numerous development applications and the progression of projects closer to completion.

From a sky-high restaurant to a pyramid-inspired structure, we’ve collated the top five spots set for the most dramatic changes.

Fine dining 26 storeys above ground and a six-storey-high infinity pool are among the big features set to shape residential living in the Gungahlin Town Centre.

There’s a string of approved and proposed mult-unit projects slated for the evolving region’s rising skyline.

One of the projects set to make the biggest impact is GEOCON’s Infinity Towers, which will become one of Canberra’s highest residential building developments and feature a sixth-storey sky park with an infinity pool overlooking Yerrabi Pond.

The other game-changer could pip Infinity Towers in height. In November developer Empire Global revealed plans for two 26-storey towers, connected by a top-floor, publicly accessibly podium encompassing two high-end restaurants, a function centre and more.

High-rise development isn’t new in Belconnen but in June GEOCON decided to turn things up a notch, revealing early plans for a mixed-use precinct bigger than the popular NewActon precinct.

The decade-long project, named Republic, will feature Canberra’s tallest building, the city’s first glass towers and a 130-room hotel.

The town centre development consists of three buildings, the tallest capped at 27 storeys, on 1.6 hectares near Lake Ginninderra.
