Andrew Barr is celebrating the opening of Belconnen’s latest high rise:
Today I officially opened Altitude, the newest residential and mixed-use development in the Belconnen town centre.
Featuring three towers of 18, 7 and 6 stories, altitude has 348 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, with the ground floor featuring a mix of commercial office, retail, cafe and restaurant spaces.
The development is close to public transport, shops, entertainment venues, restaurants and cafes and has Lake Ginninderra as a great backyard.
Developments in town centres are integral to the sustainability of Canberra’s future. Increasing the density of our town centres and allowing people to live close to where they work and spend their leisure time takes pressure off greenfield developments, and also reduces the need to have medium density redevelopment in existing suburbs. It also provides residents with a greater array of housing choices.
