Hellenic Club of Canberra granted approval for $146 million redevelopment


The Hellenic Club of Canberra has received approval for a $146 million redevelopment of its site at Woden in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

The Hellenic Club engaged the internationally renowned teams at Fender Katsalidis Architects and OCULUS to design a new Hellenic Precinct.

The precinct includes a 12-storey hotel with 151 rooms, complete with restaurants and a bar on the ground level, an indoor recreation facility on level one and an auditorium on levels two and three. There are also plans for a 16-storey office block.

The club’s three development applications (DAs) have since been approved by the ACT’s planning authority.

President of the Hellenic Club of Canberra, Andrew Satsias, said he was overwhelmed when he found out the club’s three development applications (DAs) had been approved by the ACT’s planning authority.

“We are excited and grateful for the overwhelming support we have received from the community for our plans to build a world class Hellenic precinct like no other,” Mr Satsias told The Greek Herald.

“We were not expecting all three development applications to be approved so quickly by government. It is testament to the hard working Development Committee, Consultants, Board and Staff at our Club that we have been able to achieve what we have in such a short space of time.”

The development will be completed in three stages, with the first building, the multi-level basement car park, to get underway in early 2024.
