Geocon injects confidence into the local market signing Woolworths Metro
Geocon, Australia’s 4th largest residential builder/developer, has rebutted against recent property market concerns by securing Woolworths Metro as the anchor tenant at their Republic precinct in Belconnen.
As Canberra’s largest mixed-use precinct, Republic includes over 1,200 apartments, 152-room hotel, a 500-space public car park and around 6,000m2 of ancillary office and retail. With an unprecedented $350m of sales to date, the precinct is a highly desirable trading location.
“As a top 50 ASX listed company with a wide service offering, Woolworths is an ideal anchor tenant for Geocon’s Republic precinct, and we are extremely proud that they have chosen this location. This will add significant value to the precinct and attract a wide range of ancillary retailers, food and beverage operators and commercial tenants,” says Mark Nicholls, Geocon’s Director of Commercial Sales and Leasing.
“Having a Woolworths Metro on the ground floor will make an extremely desirable location even more attractive for residential investors and live-in owners and we are expecting a surge in interest as a result.”
The announcement of the Woolworths Metro addition will continue to fulfil Geocon’s promise to provide residents with everything they could possibly need, right at their doorstep.
“The Republic precinct alone really is unprecedented, with a vibrant energy that’s going to be very, very unique. The addition of Woolworths Metro into the precinct will allow us to further deliver a luxury lifestyle in the heart of Canberra’s most vibrant town centre,” says Nick Georgalis, Geocon Founder and Managing Director.
Geocon is Canberra’s largest integrated powerhouse property enterprise presenting architecturally-stunning buildings that deliver a new standard of contemporary living to Canberra.
