Is it just me or is anyone else horrified by the Altitude Apartments being constructed between Chandler Street and Emu Bank in Belconnen? This monstrosity is an eye sore to say the least and it may not have reached it’s final height as yet. There are a number of large buildings in the area such as the ATO, ABS and Oracle Apartments but they are no where near the height of Altitude – hence the name I guess. It just seems a shame that from which ever direction you approach the Belconnen Town Centre now this Ugly High Rise sticks out like a sore thumb.
‘The Altitude Apartments will be a pinnacle building in the Belconnen Town Centre with most apartments enjoying uninterrupted views of Lake Ginninderra and beyond.
A major feature of the development will be an 18 storey tower that will contain a total of 236 apartments. This will consist of a number of 1 & 2 bedroom plus several 3 bedroom penthouse apartments.
There will also be 2 other smaller scale buildings of 6 and 7 storeys containing a total of 111 apartments. The ground floors will feature a mix of commercial office, café/restaurant and retail spaces.
The development is located on the eastern side of the Belconnen Town Centre, between Chandler Street and Emu Bank.
Residents will enjoy direct access to the Lake Foreshore and Café precinct with only a short stroll to the Westfield Shopping Centre.’
