Description
Stewart Architecture are engaged to develop a precinct plan for Canberra’s 640,000m2 Thoroughbred Park. The Canberra Racing Club recognise that a master plan is required to facilitate expansion and growth and secure a financially sustainable future for the entertainment precinct.

The concept explores changing the zoning of the site to include future residential and commercial construction. This includes non-retail commercial, affordable housing options, residential aged care and ground floor commercial space where appropriate. 
 

Building height limits will change to six storeys for residential and eight storey's for commercial areas. This plan will facilitate in maximising the potential of the currently underutilised land, opening up the precinct to a variety of uses and demographics.
