Architects Fender Katsalidis, famous for Canberra’s NewActon, Melbourne’s Eureka Tower and Hobart’s MONA, are the creative force behind our newest and most exciting mixed-use precinct – Republic.
This dynamic new precinct in Belconnen includes residential and serviced apartments, a 130-room Abode Hotel, as well as public car parking for more than 300 cars, mixed-use commercial, retail and enterprise start-up spaces, and public gardens, an amphitheatre and a top-floor observatory deck with views over Canberra.
This is no place for the status quo. Republic’s masterplan is built upon an unashamedly ambitious desire to reshape the fabric of residential Canberra by challenging conventions and expectations. The result is a rich new definition of contemporary living that celebrates community and lifestyle, and overlays it with unrivalled value for money.
Imagine a rich world of cuisine right on your doorstep. Explore the public plaza to discover a modern and constantly evolving selection of tempting food and beverage establishments – from fine-dining restaurants and bars to quirky cafes and street-food vendors.
With Lake Ginninderra providing a rich natural backdrop, Republic’s ground-floor plaza has been designed to maximise waterfront access and views. Underlined by the expansive north-facing stairs that flow down to the lake, it creates a sweeping public amphitheatre, with an abundance of shared spaces to be enjoyed all year round by residents and visitors alike.
