Canberra’s tallest building set for Belconnen

BY 2020 Belconnen will be the home of Canberra’s tallest building.

Geocon’s Republic mixed-use development called “High Society” will be located on a one hectare block at the corner of Eastern Valley Way and Cameron Avenue in Belconnen and will feature two 27-storey glass towers at 113 an 100 metres tall.

Geocon managing director Nick Georgalis says its a first-class property.

“From the concierge service, to the climate-controlled cellar where residents can store their personal wine collections, to the private cinema, chef’s kitchen and executive dining room for exclusive use by owners, High Society delivers a luxury lifestyle in the heart of Canberra’s most vibrant town centre,” he says.

But, Nick says, they’re not keeping it all for the residents and will be opening up an observation deck, located at the highest point in the building, to the public.

“The High Society building will deliver 541 apartments, 135-room Abode hotel, 500 public carparks in addition to resident parking, and retail commercial offerings in the tallest towers in Canberra,” he says.

“The $1 billion Republic precinct is one of the largest projects currently being delivered in Australia, and the two glass towers will be the ACT’s biggest project.”

Construction will start near the end of 2018 with an expected completion date of September 2020.
