New apartment block DA for Civic

By Gungahlin Al - 12 May 2010 16

Perspective view

330 new apartments in a new 16 storey building are planned to replace the old building opposite Glebe Park on Bunda Street (where Digital City used to be).

ACTPLA’s development application notices have details for the proposal (under City – DA 201017144), including this perspective sketch.

Seems people are realising that Glebe Park is too nice an outlook for offices…

What’s Your opinion?

Just where are we supposed to park in the city Mr Stanhope?

You’re not supposed to drive to the city, you’re supposed to use the shitty bus service.

As long as there are public carparks to an equivalent or greater number built under them I don’t see why it should be a problem – except during construction.

Wow, Stanhope selling the carparks. What an ass hat.

Also according to the sound report it will be 6mm float glass. I didn’t see the words double glazing in that part.

If I read the application right, sound testing was conducted between 3pm and 5pm and only for traffic. Guess they don’t care about checking for casino//club/bar noise impacts.

If I had the money I would be interested in buying there, but I do think not checking the noise at night is a bit short sighted.

I thought this was what people wanted – a vibrant city centre? Braddon will be starting its redevelopment over the next few years, and there’ll be a fair bit of new building going there also.

And in the CT today is the ad for the sale of two open carparks in the city – the one across from the Charcoal Grill and the one opposite Moosheads – both on London Circut.

If I was a city shop keeper not in the Canberra Centre – I’d be looking to close up now before the debts start piling up. Just where are we supposed to park in the city Mr Stanhope?

And good luck to Transit with the noise complaints.

Never mind Transit Bar, wouldn’t it be the Holy Grail that had better watch it’s noise levels.

It seems Glebe Park is also a great outlook for the malls skip bins, loading bay and multi story car park.

We have double glazing, and it is good, but it doesnt’ block out loud noise.

Any developer who proposes building units in inner city locations without double glazing should be disqualified from proceeding further. Despite the fact that a fair number of purchasers will be looking for the cheapest option, most would gladly stump up the extra few percent for the advantages of insulation and most critically, noise.

You’d think building residential units there would require them to be sound-proofed to the extent that the city around them and any existing live music venues should be no problem.

Of course we shall see if that happens
