2020 is looking great for the City

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

We are thrilled to hear about the occupation of the $300 million mixed use development next to the Legislative Assembly! The development will include a new office building and an adjoining commercial development with a boutique hotel, a childcare centre, basement parking, cafes and landscaped plazas.

Apart from the admirable target of 100% renewable energy by 2020, the occupation of the $300 million mixed use development next to the Legislative Assembly is good news. These types of developments are anchor points in the heart of the city and generate pedestrian movement and associated spending.

The contraction of the Federal government leaves many buildings partially occupied. There are many empty offices in the area between the casino and the pool. We love the fact that there are masses of money being spent here!

The proposed casino is just another $7 million more than the now car park opposite the Waldorf. $307 million redevelopment cost for the casino is a bucket load of investor confidence. the boulevard of Constitution Avenue is $44.8 million demonstrates confidence in the Griffin legacy and speaking of 2020, light rail is meant to be operational by 2019.

We can’t wait to see how the City looks in 2020!
