Woden welcomes new 24-storey building of apartments and penthouses to the market

The future is certainly looking bright for Woden.

If you take a look at what’s on the cards for the area, you won’t be disappointed. The next stage of the light rail will extend its tracks to Woden’s vibrant streets, the Canberra Hospital will see an expansion and soon there will be a 24-storey building of apartments and penthouses erected, known as W2.

“The name means Woden, multiplied,” says agent James Baker of Burgess Rawson Canberra.

“It personifies the gentrification that is taking place in Woden, where we are seeing vibrancy emerge beyond Westfield and into nearby amenity of sports, cafe culture, work precincts and lifestyle outside of nine to five.”

Developed by Keggins Group and built by BLOC, Baker believes the quality and calibre of W2 is going to make it a standout amongst developments across Canberra.

“It’s a stellar project in the heart of it all – an ideal town centre precinct by one of Canberra’s leading development teams with all amenity at your doorstep,” says Baker.

“W2 is bound by nothing and surrounded by everything.”

Originally designed by leading architects BVN Studio, then revitalized by locals Dezignteam, the building perfectly captures the northern, eastern and western aspects, with some of the most incredible views of Canberra.

All floor plans embody natural light through floor to ceiling glass and functional living areas that make apartment life a breeze. Premium inclusions, such as timber-look floors, stone features in the kitchen and bathrooms, and quality joinery come as a standard in all residences.

Level five will see an exclusive collection of courtyard apartments, ideal for a downsizer or owner-occupier who wants a little extra room for their personal garden. Levels 22 and 23 will see three spectacular, spacious penthouse apartments with plenty of upgraded inclusions to revel in.

On weekdays, a morning coffee – and perhaps a delectable cake or two – from nearby Space Kitchen will go down a treat. And if you’re feeling famished on the way home from work, you can always swing past Brodburger’s new digs on Hindmarsh Drive. They’re set to be there for the next few years (at least).

On weekends head out for a sun-filled afternoon of good food and cocktails at the nearby Bradley Street dining precinct, including Fenway Public House – the ultimate place to watch any live sporting event. Partake in a spot of shopping or a movie at Westfield Woden, or head over to the Phillip Swimming and Ice Skating Centre for a fun-filled day of activity.

Expected completion is mid-2023.
