The contract to deliver a $300 million government office complex in Canberra has been awarded. From six shortlisted tenderers, Canberra-based company Capital Property Group (CPG) was chosen to transform the existing car park in Civic into a 20,000 square metre office building that will house at least 1,700 public servants by October 2020.

Development works will include a new government office building and a connecting commercial use complex with a boutique hotel, basement parking, child care centre, cafes and landscaped plazas. This mixed-use development will be located right at the heart of Canberra and is expected to spark further redevelopment in the CBD area.
This project is expected to create a boost in jobs and economic activity in the area, helping local businesses benefit from the increased commercial wave.
