Urban at Republic
URBAN AT REPUBLIC
A plaza for the people
Welcome to Canberra’s buzzing new lifestyle destination. Conceived by Fender Katsalidis Architects and Oculus Urban Design – the award-winning team behind the celebrated NewActon – Republic will be the city’s largest ever mixed-use precinct. And it’s designed for everyone. Created for the enjoyment of both residents and the wider community, this ambitious project is set to become the beating heart of Belconnen. A place for meeting and connecting, all the precinct buildings will be arranged around a central public square. This open layout is complemented by internal laneways, lush ‘green’ stairs and planters, and a bike hub to get you moving. Then, there’s the thriving dining, drinking and shopping scene just waiting to be explored.
The realisation of Geocon’s vision to build vibrant town centres; Republic is yours to discover. The project includes five iconic towers (the two tallest reaching an impressive 27 storeys), along with three lower-rise buildings. Made up of over 1,200 new apartments, a 135-room hotel, 500 privately managed public carparks, a supermarket and 6,300sqm of commercial and retail accommodation – this is urban living at its best.
Located on a 1.6-hectare block opposite Lake Gininderra, Republic is well connected to surrounding open spaces and amenities. Complete with easy links to the lake’s edge, cycling and walking paths and public transport. Commercial and office areas in Belconnen, UC Senior Secondary College, Canberra International Sports and Aquatic Centre (CISAC), Westfield Shopping Centre and the University of Canberra are also within easy reach. Once complete, Republic will be a living, breathing embodiment of the dynamic world-class city it calls home.
