Plans are underway to add some razzle dazzle to the city as we know it. BY JONI SCANLON
Construction is about to begin on one of two
significant developments set to complete Lonsdale
Street's transformation into a cosmopolitan hub.
The six-storey development, Alluvion on
Lonsdale, is expected to be completed before the
end of 2014, and already more than half of the
52 apartments have sold.
Along with apartments, the development will
feature office space, an arcade, studio spaces
and a range of restaurants and bars.
Demolition works began on the site in March.
Once Alluvion is complete most of the traders in
the Lonsdale Street Traders warehouse across the
road will move into the development, according
to creative director and one of the owners of the
Lonsdale Street properties, Nick Bulum. Once
those businesses have moved across the street,
the warehouse site and a number of surrounding
buildings will be demolished to make way for a
Palco Apartments will house 80 apartments and
feature two laneways with a mixture of retail and
"It's sort of a new concept for retails -- there's
little pods in front of a strip of shops, there's a
day spa, a boutique hotel with a little swimming
pool bar on the second floor, and there's this little
cave concept of restaurants that has an internal
courtyard. This building's going to be amazing,"
GROWTH FROM THE CITY TO THE LAKE
STREET THEATRE: A CREATIVE HUB
The Street Theatre's transformation into a performing arts hub for the Canberra community
is almost complete as construction nears its end.
The $3.18 million extension and upgrade of current facilities will provide Canberra its first
custom-designed rehearsal space.
While the building reopened to the public for performances in March, chief executive and
artistic director Caroline Stacey said the rehearsal space isn't expected to be operational
until the end of July.
"We're thinking of it more as a creative hub," she said. "We see, with the greater development
opportunities that the rehearsal space brings, more artists being brought together."
Once complete the site will include a custom-designed rehearsal space with a sprung floor,
storage spaces, and administrative spaces, including meeting rooms and offices.
Canberra's city centre will be transformed in
coming years with plans for a new convention
centre, sports stadium and aquatic facility with
an urban beach.
ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher announced
two projects early this year that could guide
massive growth in the city and along the shores
of Lake Burley Griffin.
"As the city grows to a population of 500,000 and
beyond we have to plan for key infrastructure,
major recreation and cultural facilities in order
to 'future proof' our city," Ms Gallagher said. "It's
not just about buildings and plans on a map; it's
about opening up future possibilities."
The City Plan will guide government decision-
making on what facilities and infrastructure are
needed and where these should be located.
A number of projects have been developed
within The City Plan including Capital Metro, to
bring light rail into the city centre, while the City
to the Lake project was designed to link the CBD
and Lake Burley Griffin through residential and
The City to the Lake project includes a proposal
for a new lakeside national attraction, an
interactive boardwalk in West Basin along with
an aquatic facility and urban beach, a new
convention centre and a sports stadium.
Major changes to Parkes Way, including making
it a split-level boulevard, were also proposed to
seamlessly link the lake with Civic.
Early project feasibility work suggested the
project could take between 15 and 25 years to
complete, with initial infrastructure works not
expected to commence until 2015.
