The towers of Belconnen

By 16 December 2011 45

belco towers

Two containers tipped on their ends have recently appeared in the carpark adjacent to the Belconnen Community Bus station, fronting Benjamin Way.

I approached a workman affixing some panelling over the door at the bottom (at the rear away from the street0 and asked him what they were.

He advised that he didn’t know, and that i should speak to the council.

mmm “art”.

I guess at least it isn’t phallic shaped this time.

Very small multi unit development? Close to shops, ample parking, modern design?

Looks a lot like the twin towers memorial in Auckland, actually.

well; not from that angle anyhow ;-)

I’m going with “artwork”… probably at low cost; say… $250,000…

Possibly related to the pending multi-storey development for that site ?

It’s one of those multi-level outhouses – you know – where the boss gets the one at the top, the middle managers get the middle one and the workers get the one at the bottom.

Something new for Lauren Jackson & a developer to promote to the unwary and/or stupid?

I don’t know what it is but it’s more attractive than 90% of what they’ve built in Belco.

As for purpose, I’m going to guess it’s a Labor plan to replicate this: http://meninblack.wikia.com/wiki/Statue_of_Liberty – push of a button and all memory of the GDE is gone! We’re through the looking glass people.

Is it just me or are others inspired by the towers to get out the old “Who’s Next”

“out here in the fields, i fight for my meals……

I think there are harbingers of the end of anarchic free parking.

Its only anarchic because of those who have trouble understanding the concept of an arrow, large “NO ENTRY” signs and confusion over why the drivers opposite are mouthing naughty words.
