Hellenic Club Canberra submits development application for redevelopment, including hotel, office and restaurants

Hellenic Club

The Hellenic Club has revealed the first look at its $280 million redevelopment, aimed at attracting local and international visitors to a lavish new precinct.

A 16-storey office tower, a 12-storey, 150-room high-end hotel and a new auditorium housing a 2,000-seat theatre are part of the Woden Hellenic Club’s ambitious plans to diversify its revenue sources and secure its long-term future.

The club has unveiled its development project and master plan for the Callam Street site that it believes will fit with the changing face of the Woden Town Centre and serve the club’s 50,000 members and the increasing residential population in the area.

The integrated development will extend the club’s footprint from the current premises across the surface car park which will be replaced by a three-level basement providing 800 spaces.
