I notice another ad in the ‘Commercial Properties’ section of the Times for the development of Belconnen’s “first residential tower” of up to 18 storeys.
The site is that big vacant block between Emu Bank and Chandler Street, across the road from Subway, Pizza Hut and Video Ezy, and with the bus interchange and the Belconnen Labor Club and Library nearby.
The site is to be auctioned on December 14th.
But 18 storeys! Where are all these people goin to come from, and if they’re moving in from the suburbs, what will it do to values? And does Belconnen need an eyesore to match the new Woden Tower?
