Hindmarsh’s newest mixed-use development in the heart of the vibrant Woden Green precinct.Learn more
N11 – Block 10 Section 156
In collaboration with Scott Carver architects, Hindmarsh has designed a boutique commercial building on the southern corner of Wilbow & Callam Streets in Canberra’s Woden Town Centre. The project design has formed from many concepts to meet the vision for the site and its rapidly evolving surrounds.
The proposal has been informed by extensive work and a range of design options undertaken over several years, including consultation with the ACT government and neighbours within Woden. The resulting design proposed includes a circa 8,500 square metre commercial office building, designed over 5 levels.
The design provides on-site amenity for its occupants, and is also supported by on-site basement car parking.
Shadow studies have been undertaken on neighbouring buildings to understand the existing and future solar impact once the development is complete. These solar studies are available for public viewing and feedback as part of the Pre-Development Application Consultation process and will also be available during Development Assessment.
The site, formally known as Block 10 Section 156 Phillip, is well-connected to recreation facilities and public transport. It adjoins popular cycleways that connect to all of Canberra, and pedestrian walking paths linking the hospital to the Woden Town Centre, along with parks, sporting grounds and Woden’s transport hub. Living in close proximity to great amenity promotes active living and lifestyles.
The project team recognises the significance of the site and the opportunity to deliver a considered conceptual design that is functional, and sympathetic to the surrounding development and existing community. Scott Carver architects, and Canberra Town Planning bring together an outstanding track record of placemaking and conscientious design.
We are now commencing Community Consultation to seek your input on the proposed development. To find out more information and to be kept up to date, please register your interest

The proposed development comprises circa 8,500 square metres of commercial office space. The proposed building comprises 5 levels of office, with a single level of basement carparking. Access will be off Callam Street.
The project is being proposed for the southern corner of Wilbow and Callam Streets in the Woden Town Centre, on land formally known as Block 10 Section 156 Phillip. It is adjacent to Yarralumla Creek and the Woden Police Station, and is currently a vacant site. The site is a short walk away from the Woden transport hub and Westfield Shopping Centre.
Community consultation will take place over March 2020.
It is anticipated that a Development Application will be lodged in April 2020, with construction to commence (subject to approval) in Q3 2020. It is anticipated construction will take 16 months.
The project is anticipated to generate some additional noise and traffic during construction in line with other similar developments. This will be undertaken in line with Government approvals and controls.
Once complete, the project will generate extra vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the area. The extent of this impact will be demonstrated as part of traffic report to be prepared as part of the project’s Development Application, and will be available for public viewing and comment and feedback as part of the Development Assessment process.
The site is within a master plan area that Hindmarsh procured off the ACT Government in which the block is nominated as a development block.
