The Alexander and Albemarle Buildings have undergone a rebirth.

With an eye to the environmental benefits of repurposing much of the existing structure, the imposing Woden office towers are set to be transformed by the award-winning Doma Group into airy and textural warehouse and loft-style apartments along with diverse non-residential uses activating the grounds of the site.

Built in the mid-1960s by the Commonwealth, Doma will begin a long-awaited activation of this under-utilised central part of the Woden Town Centre.

The impressive concrete structure of the two towers are preserved and repurposed for lower-density urban living in the heart of the town centre, creating a new “third space” for all of Woden. Much of the architectural effort externally is to harness the strong mass and form of the building while balconies and façade treatments will render the buildings unrecognisable from their current state.

The smaller annexes have made way for a new retail and commercial thoroughfare set around a central and activated mews with the lower structures topped by beautifully conceived apartment amenities including a pool.


Standing sentry to the city’s development over the last 50 years, the A&A are within view of the Parliamentary Triangle, in close proximity to Canberra’s most exclusive southside suburbs, and beside Canberra’s largest hospital and a major shopping centre. The development promises to reinvigorate the commercial heart of the area, already attracting a gymnasium, gastro pub and brewery, with further food and beverage businesses to come.

It will foster connections with the wider community, opening its doors to host events and gatherings designed to foster a dynamic and nurturing environment for those occupying and interacting within the A&A. With the development located at the very hub of transport services, A&A is poised to become a central location for access to the city’s best shopping, eating, and fitness pursuits — granting residents access to a premium lifestyle at their very doorstep. Within a short walk are the best weekend indulgences — small boutique cafes and eateries, specialty shops and places to nourish the body and soul. Meanwhile, the buildings themselves will reactivate commerce and activity on site with a new retail and commercial development zone to bridge the residential towers.

Large courtyard spaces will encourage community and an outlook of space within an otherwise tight urban setting. Nothing will overpower the serenity offered to residents as they close their doors, relax and turn to drink in views of the city and the abundance of green space curated throughout the Woden precinct. Sporting fields and parks within a brief walk or jog complete the picture for well-rounded living.
