Linking Canberra City to the Lake wins Australia Award for Urban Design

JILA, in collaboration with Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects, SMEC Australia Pty Ltd have been awarded the Australia Award for Urban Design for their work on the ACT government’s Linking Canberra City to the Lake project.

Project Summary 

The City to the Lake project provides a development framework for an urban extension of the City centre towards the lake, creating a vibrant urban waterfront that will enhance the public’s access to and use of Commonwealth Park, the lake and major national and regional educational and cultural institutions such as the ANU and National Museum. The public waterfront will be the centrepiece of a mixed use City precinct along with major new public amenity, infrastructure and cultural attractions for the Capital Region. Overall the project provides for over 1 million square metres of gross floor area for up to 15,000-20,000 new residents located around West Basin, City Hill and along Constitution Avenue.
