The ABC has a report on Morris Property Group’s grand plans to transform the corner of West Row and Alinga Street in Civic:
The 12 levels of residential apartments would include one, two and three bedroom units, as well as a gymnasium, pool and courtyard.
The shopfronts to Canberra House, the Alinga Bridge to Canberra Club connection, and the overhead pedestrian connection adjacent to the Canberra Club would also be demolished.
The Canberra House office tower and basement on Marcus Clarke Street would be retained.
The redevelopment would include a new east-west retail arcade and north-south retail laneway connecting Alinga Street and West Row Park, housing shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.
“It’s a very exciting project. It will change the face of city west and aid in the rejuvenation of the CBD,” said Morris Property Group Canberra director Louise Morris.
