Demolition of Block 2 and part-Block 5 Section 43 Griffith

The ACT Government's Suburban Land Agency is preparing to demolish a vacant building on the corner of Stuart Street and Light Street in Griffith, also known as Block 2 Section 43.

What is happening?

The building was previously occupied by the Menslink support service, which has relocated to the Grant Cameron Centre in Holder.

The demolition works, including the removal of hazardous materials, will be undertaken by a pre- qualified contractor and licensed sub-contractors.

The contractor will be supervised by an experienced civil engineering consultant to ensure that the WHS requirements are achieved including public safety.

Why is the building being demolished?

The ACT Government's Suburban Land Agency intends to sell the site in 2018/19. The vacant building on the site will be demolished to prepare the site for sale and to prevent unsafe access.

How long will demolition take?

Subject to weather, demolition is expected to start in mid-November 2017 and finish by May 2018.

What will happen to the site after demolition?

The ACT Government intends to sell the land in 2018/19. The site was part of a Territory Plan Variation and has been rezoned to RZ5.

The site area is approximately 2,230m2 and has a projected dwelling yield of 32. Three storey is permitted fronting Stuart Street and four storeys is permitted fronting Light Street Park.

How can I find out more about the demolition process?

Site signage on the fence will provide demolition updates and contact details for the contractor. Contractors will also contact immediate neighbours through letters or door-knocking to discuss the upcoming demolition activity.

What's happening to the Stuart Flats development?

Stuart Flats is scheduled for redevelopment in 2018/19 under the ACT Government's Asset Recycling Initiative (ARI). This site is not part of the ARI but the sites will be sold at the same time.
