Lawyers take the lift to the top floor

Share Canberra's trusted news:
An impression of the Constitution Place development on London Circuit, Civic.

NOT a sod has been turned but law firm King & Wood Mallesons has already claimed the top floor of Constitution Place, the building development planned to be built next to the Legislative Assembly. 

The Capital Property Group’s managing director, Stephen Byron, said the firm was the first commercial office tenant to commit to moving into the $300 million development when the building is completed in mid-2020. Construction is expected to begin early next year.

He said the 9000 square-metre site will comprise two buildings, 20,000sqm of offices for the ACT government over five stories, a 12-level building accommodating a four-level, 130 room hotel and  seven levels of commercial office accommodation. There will be a 550-space basement car park, child care facilities, a dining precinct and gymnasium.

He said the development aimed to be Canberra’s first WELL-certified building

“WELL is focused on the people within the building and looks at the impact of everything from air quality, to fitness regimes and amenities. The building will be 5 star NABERS energy rated and we’ve committed to a 200kw roof-mounted solar array to reduce the building’s carbon footprint,” Mr Byron said.
