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.
Canberra’s evolving culture is reflected in the development of multiple CBD apartment complexes showcasing Canberra’s high standard of living and community level involvement.
The Mayfair Apartments on the corner of West Row and Alinga Street have recently been completed with panoramic views of the city to match luxury fittings. Within walking distance of cafes, restaurants, boutiques and a whole range of other things Canberra has to offer, this prime location reflects Canberra’s love of city living and the culture that comes with that.
A second development of CBD residences has also just been released with The Capitol. The Capitol will showcase composed architecture providing a sophisticated lifestyle worthy of its prominent position in the city.
The Capitol will be complete with a concierge style grand lobby, Technogym Wellness Centre and views overlooking the revamped Hobart carpark. A combination of the world’s finest in apartment living will call Canberra’s CBD home as the apartments find themselves surrounded by much of what gives Canberra its distinct culture and character.
With many offerings of museums, theatre acts, installations and exhibitions a further apartment complex is planned to capitalize on Canberra CBD’s rich culture. With views over Mt. Ainslie and central Canberra the Highgate Apartments will replace an existing four story office block.
The $70 million project will further focus on luxurious apartment living with facilities including a resident’s pool, gym, theatre and BBQ area. Again, within walking distance of New Acton, Civic and Braddon the location of these apartments will allow patrons to fully immerse themselves in Canberra’s evolving social, foodie and cultural scenes.
To further add to Canberra CBD’s already booming list of apartment developments, the demolition of the Currong and Allawah housing site will see the resurrection of Section 52, an apartment building holding not only residential spaces but also social, cultural, retail and commercial spaces.
Within walking distance of the Canberra centre and in Canberra’s hip and forward-thinking suburb of Braddon the development will be set to commence in early 2017. It is very exciting to have cranes and confidence in the CBD as they reflect the constant evolution and development of Canberra.
The demolished buildings are located facing the Veteran’s Park and alongside Northbourne Avenue and the car park block opposite the petrol state on Cooyong Street. The new development is said to be the home of 500 new apartments in the City’s CBD.
To say Canberra’s CBD has great apartments is an understatement. With world-class standards of luxurious apartment living within walking distance of Canberra’s social, food and cultural scenes the city has a lot to be proud of.
