Doma’s plans to redevelop the former CSIRO headquarters in Campbell are progressing with the leading Canberra developer preparing to lodge a concept master plan as required by the approved Development Control Plan for the development.
The development will be known as “The Foothills”, reflecting its elevated position at the foothills of Mount Ainslie. The apartments and townhouses on the site will take advantage of the northern aspect and views over the city and lake, with close to four hectares of land permitting open spaces and resort-like amenities for residents on the fringe of the CBD.
The development will have a substantially lower density of development than that which is contemplated in the DCP that was approved before Doma purchased the site. This permitted 60,000 square metres of development and contemplated up to 650 apartments. The revised scheme will target approximately 132 townhouses and 104 apartments, with the two apartment buildings located along Limestone Avenue. Doma will be seeking an amendment to the DCP that entrenches this lower density along with other associated adjustments.
The diverse mix of residences available range from a limited number of one-bedroom apartments through to large penthouse apartments with commanding views and large terraces, but also compact two-bedroom terraces through to four-bedroom townhouses that are genuine house alternatives with garaging for up to four cars.
Doma is currently undertaking preliminary public consultation on the proposed development, with more formal consultation to take place once documents are lodged with the approval authority. The Foothills Concept Plan is now being considered by the NCA.
