More than a workplace.
An icon renewed.

A project of historical importance to Canberra, ANZAC Park East is destined to be a thriving precinct with links to its significant past.

With the site listed on the Commonwealth Heritage List, ANZAC Park East will continue to be a framing element of the most important vista in the Nation. The Parliament House vista embraces the Parliamentary Triangle, links the Australian War Memorial to Parliament House and was built with an element of symmetry; if you were to carefully analyse the original buildings on both ANZAC Park East and West, you might notice the very deliberate symmetry to align with Griffin’s principles.

Amalgamated will honour the heritage listed site and ANZAC Park East will be maintained as an anchor point on ANZAC Parade; it will respect its position and complement the significance of the overall landscape pattern.
