Amalgamated Property Group (APG) has secured Works Approval for the highly anticipated ANZAC Park East (APE), heralding a new era in Canberra’s commercial landscape.
A testament to Amalgamated’s vision for a prestigious mixed-use precinct, and located on Constitution Avenue and ANZAC Parade, APE offers panoramic views of Parliament House and the Australian War Memorial, making it an iconic development within the nation’s most historic viewline.
Early construction works for ANZAC Park East are already underway, with the approval now allowing the Group to forge ahead with full construction, ensuring timelines for completion are foreseeable for organisations planning their relocation. The precinct office building is estimated to be completed late 2025.
Offering sustainability initiatives such as a 100% electrified plant system, 100% Green electricity supply, solar capture and also targeting 5.5 Star NABERS Base Building and 5-star Green Star rating, ANZAC Park East is on track to become another market-leading commercial precinct in Amalgamated’s portfolio.
The development positions itself as a coveted location for prominent organisations, offering proximity to ACT business districts, minimised commutes, and maximised efficiencies. With unparalleled amenity for work-life balance, APE features an exciting village food and dining scene onsite, market-leading end-of-trip facilities, bike paths, and easy access to Commonwealth Park and Lake Burley Griffin.
The nine-level office building comprised of approximately 17,000sqm NLA will be innovative, connected and agile, offering flexible floorplate design for adaptive workplaces, a contemporary architecture with a nod to its heritage, outstanding views towards the Australian War Memorial and the Lake, a premium business centre and direct access to the vibrant food and retail scene that is being carefully curated by the Group to ensure its success.
Phil O’Brien, General Manager of Amalgamated Property Group said, “Amalgamated Property Group is on an exciting trajectory. We’ve commenced work on the iconic ANZAC Park East development, preparing to launch our first Build-to-Rent in Canberra, and started construction on the Gold Coast with our landmark residential development ‘Amaya’, all while leading the industry with quality and environmental initiatives at the forefront.”
Demonstrating the depths of their quality in commercial developments, Amalgamated has also recently completed and opened its Civic Quarter (CQ) precinct, with over 20 leading organisations calling CQ home and 3 new retail premises opened.
Civic Quarter, comprising two iconic towers—Civic Quarter 1 and Civic Quarter 2—has been a symbol of excellence, garnering the esteemed ‘Commercial Development over $100m’ award in the 2023 Master Builders and Asset Construction Hire Excellence Awards. CQ1, the first tower, earned accolades in 2020 for the prestigious ‘2020 Project of the Year’ and ‘Commercial Development over $50m’, setting the stage for APG’s commitment to quality and innovation.
CQ1, strategically located in Canberra’s CBD, caters to the evolving needs of leading private sector organizations, housing global industry leaders such as Datacom, Downer Professional Services, Westpac and St George, AWS Australia, Colliers, and Indesco to name but a few. With over 16,000 square meters of Net Lettable Area (NLA) across 13 stories, CQ1 sets the benchmark for smart technologies, flexible workspaces, and sustainability, achieving a 5.5-star NABERS Energy Base Building rating, a 4-star Green Star Design & As Built certification, and Silver-level WELL Core and Shell certification.
Civic Quarter 2, completed in late 2022, proudly displays a 100% precommitment from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Forestry (DAFF). Boasting 35,000 square meters of NLA, CQ2 showcases architectural brilliance with a 13-story tower, a full-height internal atrium, flexible floorplates, state-of-the-art end-of-trip facilities, and an intelligent façade design. Noteworthy retail additions include Love Athletica, EQ Bakery, and Dash—an innovative food service concept for busy consumers.
Amalgamated’s commitment to sustainability and community engagement has significantly shaped the property landscape over the past two decades. In 2023 alone, the Group has secured four major awards and entered a partnership with a food scrap and waste collection service at their latest developments, Capital Scraps, further solidifying its position as an industry leader.
Interstate, Amalgamated currently has the 33-storey Amaya tower under construction, just 300m from the shores of Broadbeach and will soon be releasing another Broadbeach development.
