Furzer Street Precinct, Phillip
Following extensive discussions with the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate (ESDD), the Land Development Agency (LDA) has decided to withdraw the two Development Applications it had submitted for the buildings on Section 9. Whilst withdrawing the two applications for residential/commercial developments, the LDA will however proceed with the Estate Development Plan Development Application (EDP DA).
The EDP DA subdivides Section 9 a development parcel and a new park. As part of the EDP DA, infrastructure works are proposed to enhance the immediate area and improve connections to the Town Centre. These works include:
- realignment of Corinna Street to create a new main street and cafe strip;
- development of a new public park immediately to the north of the existing public library;
- changes to Melrose Drive including signalisation of the Melrose Drive and Corinna Street intersection.
Current surface parking on Woden 9 is planned to be replaced by a structured car park on the nearby Section 3. Section 3 has recently been released for sale for the purposes of a structured car park which will accommodate at least 850 cars as well as provision of additional mixed use development including commercial space, and up to 120 residential dwellings. The 850 car spaces will replace the displaced parking from Section 3 and Section 9.
The purchaser of Section 3 will be required to maintain public access to the existing surface car park until construction commences. Subject to the sale of the site, the existing car park is likely to be closed from late 2013 onwards once the purchaser has obtained development approval from ESDD. It is expected that the new structured car park would be open from late 2015.
To reduce inconvenience, prior to closing the existing car park, further information will be provided with the details and of locations of temporary replacement parking that will be available during the construction period. This will enable patrons to explore alternative parking options and/or methods of transport. Once the structured car park is completed and opened, temporary parking arrangements will no longer be needed for the Furzer Street Precinct.
