The ABC has a lengthy report on development plans around Woden with the proposed mega towers being scratched and more parking on the table:
Land Development Agency (LDA) chief executive David Dawes says the two development applications for the land bordered by Melrose Drive, Furzer and Corinna streets, and Aviation House, have been withdrawn following community consultation.
“We’ve obviously listened to the Woden Valley Community Council’s concerns and obviously we would revisit any future proposals for that, and work with the council,” he said.
“We felt that it was important with all the other work that is going on in that precinct that we needed to address the car parking.”
A development application for a multi-storey carpark with a minimum 850 spaces near the Tradies Club will be put forward.
Mr Dawes says it includes the option of developing some commercial space and possibly up to 120 residential units.
