Section 84 Development Update

May 12th, 2006 at 09:52am

It’s been a little while since my last update on the Section 84 Development, and it seems like an appropriate time for another update as the Canberra Centre have released a newsletter about it. (Click the images to see the full size version of each page).

Here is the map of the development, which I will be referring to throughout the rest of this article. Please note that the map uses a severely outdated aerial photograph.

On Monday I went for a walk around the construction site, and took many photos (which seemed to attract the attention of a few construction workers). Some of the photos were designed to provide comparisons with my previous photos of the construction, others were designed to compare the current development status with artist’s impressions of the finished buildings, whilst others were taken simply for the sake of taking photos of the construction.

First up, here is a photo I took in early October last year, looking towards Precinct A from the corner of Bunda and Petrie streets.

Here is the artist’s impression of what it will look like upon completion.

Here is an artist’s impression of what Petrie Street will look like from the corner of Petrie and Bunda streets.

This is what Petrie Street looked like from roughly the same spot on Monday.

Here is the artist’s impression of Precinct B from Bunda Street

Much like I did in March, I took more photos through peep holes on Bunda Street. Here is one from March

And a photo of the same spot on Monday.

It looks like the Canberra Centre are already leasing out the shop space.

Moving on to Precinct C (The former site of the Griffin Centre, home of community radio station 2XX among other things), and some photos from Ballumbir Street.

I then walked around to the laneway on the side of Precinct C opposite Genge Street.

Which provided me with a good angle of Precinct B and the new Griffin Centre (Precinct E).

Walking back around to Ballumbir Street I noticed some rather interesting signs from “Go Traffic” which were informing people road work (in this case minor resealing works) on Torrens Street (the street almost directly under the “D”, and to the right of the words “Ballumbir Street” on the map).

I then walked between Precinct B and Precinct D to bring you more photos of Precinct B (Precinct D is not currently under construction, but will be when the carparks under Precincts A and B open).

In this photo you can see through to Bunda Street.

Whilst in this one you can see both Precinct A and Precinct B

Back in March I took the following photo of Precinct A and Precinct B from Ballumbir Street.

On Monday I took this one from a similar position.

Apparently Precincts B and C will look something like this

This one is looking into Precinct A from the same location as the previous photo, and looking towards Petrie Street.

In October I brought you these photos from Petrie Street, looking towards Precinct A, and in the distance Precinct B.

It certainly looks different down there now.

Here is one looking in to precinct A from Petrie Street

Whilst it is not shown on the map, Pecinct A actually continues all the way down Petrie Street, taking a narrow space away from Precinct F (The youth centre/skate park). A small section of the construction boundary does not have the green shadecloth material at the top of the skatepark.

I March I brought you some photos of the construction site from the top of the City Markets Car Park.
