Block 4 Section 60 Braddon
The intent is to create a vibrant mixed-use precinct on Northbourne Avenue, adjacent to Haig Park. The site presents an opportunity to reinforce the Government’s broader vision for the Northbourne Avenue Corridor – itself nationally significant as one of the main entries into the Capital – through the creation of a series of buildings that are conceived in the spirit of positive ‘city building’ which is somewhat contrary to current approaches of figurative image driven form making. This approach aims to realise consistent built forms along Northbourne Avenue further creating meaningful negative spaces between buildings that are beneficial to both residents and the wider community.
The vision of the site is organised by a central spine that connects Haig Park to the South and the Expansion Mural to the North. This recognition of place and history is further reinforced by mid-block connections that create better site permeability and integration with the immediate context.
Ultimately, the intent is to create a truly livable precinct that makes a positive contribution to the established and envisaged urban fabric.
