The recently completed Monash PHRT project was officially opened today, marking the 1000th public housing dwelling to be handed over to Housing ACT as part of the ACT’s Public Housing Renewal Taskforce program. The program commenced in 2015 and is close to achieving its objective of renewing a total of 1,288 dwellings by June 2019. AMC is proud to have been a part of the PHRT Monash project, working with Boss Projects Group to deliver 17 townhouses and 13 apartments offering tenants energy-efficient homes that are close to public transport, shops and local amenities.

A striking contemporary sculpture has recently been installed at AMC’s Denman Village Shops development. ANU Fine Arts student, Naomi Taylor Royd, won a competition run by Capital Estates with her Eucalyptus Triad sculpture, “inspired by the simple organic shapes of native eucalyptus trees”. The artwork consists of three 6m high curvilinear steel elements painted a bold red which are now installed in the main forecourt of the retail precinct. The sculpture is the latest addition to the recently completed development designed by AMC and complements the bold curves and natural materials palette which also take their cue from the natural surroundings and features of the Molonglo Valley.
