175-179 London Circuit Redevelopment
Morris Property Group is excited to be undertaking this office redevelopment project in the heart of Canberra CBD. The redevelopment will comprise demolition of the existing 2 storey office buildings and transformation of the site into a state of the art commercial office tower.
The redevelopment will take place over 2 parcels of land comprising Blocks 12 and 13 Section 14 City (833m2) which is located at 175 -179 London Circuit. The proposed development also includes acquisition of small parcels of land in Riverside Lane and on the corner of Ainslie Place and London Circuit to square off the site. The proponent has in-principle support from the Territory for purchase of the small parcel to the rear of the site comprising approximately 50m2.
Positioned in the heart of the CBD, this development will be on the doorstep of some of Canberra’s finest shopping and dining outlets, prominent corporate business hubs, public transport networks, cycle networks and public open spaces.
Morris Property Group is committed to delivering the 175-179 London Circuit Redevelopment in a way that improves the civic architecture of the Canberra CBD and creates a quality experience for all users.
