The Waterfront is Canberra’s first residential development to be built on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. Comprising four glazed atria and housing 104 luxury apartments including 9 penthouses, The Waterfront is a world-class development that sets the benchmark for contemporary, sophisticated design.
As Canberra’s first waterfront residential development, The Waterfront required PBS to focus on key environmental issues and to deliver a range of solutions which included extensive ground water management and the installation of concrete piers driven up to 32 meters into the ground to alleviate poor soil quality.
The unique curved structure required PBS to innovate at almost every stage of the construction to deliver the best outcomes for the client, Stockland, and to deliver the project a record 3 months ahead of program.
The structure features a concrete frame constructed from pre-cast concrete with post-tensioned concrete decks and extensive glazing delivering spectacular views of Lake Burley Griffin.
The four glazed atria apartment buildings incorporate nine penthouses which are fitted out with individual lifts and curved timber staircases.
