Embark - Lyneham on Northbourne
Welcome to Lyneham on Northbourne (EMBARK), a redevelopment project located in the ACT. Indesco, in collaboration with Canberra Town Planning, Front Architects, and Redbox Design Group, prepared an Estate Development Plan and detailed design for this former public housing site.
The site includes heritage listed structures, registered, and regulated trees, traffic limitations, and hydraulic infrastructure constraints. The redevelopment project has also undergone detailed coordination with the National Capital Authority (NCA) to align with the Northbourne Avenue corridor vision.
Formerly known as the Owen and Lyneham Flats, the site is now zoned for mixed-use, comprising residential and minor commercial land uses. Our design team has focused on creating active travel corridors, making the streets pedestrian-friendly and parallel to Northbourne Avenue.
Our development includes 160 residential units and commercial spaces, with two levels of basement car parking. We have incorporated precast walls, Dincel core walls, and post-tensioned slabs to ensure speed and ease during construction. The roof is a combination of lightweight steel framing and post-tensioned concrete.
At Lyneham on Northbourne (EMBARK), we strived to create a sustainable and modern community while preserving the heritage of the site.
