Canberra is a young city by world standards. Many of our suburbs still have their original buildings. As a city, we are beginning to see examples of gentrification; the older parts of Canberra are coming into their second life, incorporating the best of today’s ideas.


In Giralang, Nikias Diamond have an opportunity to build something that is empathetic to the surrounding suburb and a much-needed community hub for everyone to use and enjoy. You have told us you want a new supermarket, a coffee shop and a community space to congregate. On top of this, a number of established residents in the area have told us they want to stay in Giralang. Our development includes oversized apartments so you still have the space and feeling of a house.


What we propose to build in Giralang will be for the long term and will take on the best development and design principals we have available today. The development will be an example of how to do something well.


Nikias Diamond has a long history in Canberra; we are an established property developer with a reputation for getting it right. Our work and projects can be seen at New Acton, Garran, O’Malley, The Wetlands, Palace Cinemas, The Diamant Hotel and John James Hospital in Deakin. We are a developer of quality and our reputation has been built on every project we have rolled out.


Our family has a long history with the Giralang site. It is our intention to get the new site right and for it to be a legacy to our family and to the community who have supported us on this journey.


What we have proposed is based on the feedback from the Giralang community. Your views and ideas have been fundamental in forming what we have put forward. In short, we want to build a community-focused centre that we can all proudly call our local, where we can meet and use in our daily lives.
