Phillip Oval Proposals

By Pandy - 12 July 2006 49

Phillip Oval Proposals
——————————————————————————–

A think tank’s proposal to develop part of the Philip Oval precinct.

The future of Philip Oval is up for debate again, with a $180-million redevelopment proposal put forward by the Canberra Institute.

The plan involves rejuvenating the grounds, demolishing the Michael O’Connor grandstand and constructing three high-rise commercial and residential buildings.

But there’s speculation the functional review has recommended the site be sold. The minister (Simon Corbell?) not ruling that out today.

The neighbouring Helenic Club’s seen as a possible buyer, while another option is redeveloping the site for paid parking.

Footnote:
The Brumbies have expressed interest in re-locating to the Phillip Oval.

What’s Your opinion?

At least you would know that your property would be in the dead centre of Woden.

No stone should be left unturned to make sure it doesn’t happen

Are you on all week?

There would be grave concerns if they did that.

Phillip Enclosed is opposite the hospital.

Football Park is opposite the Hellenic Club and Phillip Pool and Skate Rink.

Yet another valuable community asset to be hocked off to the highest bidder.

Are they going to sell the cemetary next?

Football Park does not = Phillip Oval.

Phillip Oval is the ground oppposite the hospital.

Pandy 1:31 pm 07 Jul 06

Football Park = Phillip Oval

Build apartments on top of it, and make them seven stories high!

Are we talking about Football Park at Phillip or that rugby ground opposite the hospital?

This is Royal Rugby’s home ground. The O’Connor stand was built by fundraising from them, so I do believe that they ought have a significant say in what occurs here.

The mayor will be happy to sell this to help balance the books.

And what happened to the insurance collect from when the feral arsonist(s) torched the grandstand?

That weed infested waste? Bulldoze the sucker and put in a nuclear waste storage facility.

How about a high rise residential complex with lots of offices, more retail space and a dragway on the roof. Think of the tourist value and the publicity. Not to mention the need for very careful driving or Darwin award winning opportunities.

Woden could always use more shops.

Or we could site the dragway there ?
