Some inner-city places are simply enchanting. They draw us in with a combustion of bright lights, sizzling food, art, fashion, theatre and colour.
Urban cultural hubs are the early adopters of new ideas. They say 'yes' to adventure and innovation. They see potential. They are an eclectic mix of optimism.
Soho is inspired by the world's best city precincts; the places that strike the balance between density and culture. Welcome to a new way of living in Canberra.
Be part of a vibrant and active community. The Soho precinct achieves Burley Griffin's concept of urban living along Canberra's wide avenues.
Soho is a truly human centred precinct; a place that brings people together though art, landscaping and hospitality.
Unique Heritage Inspired
At the heart of the precinct, Soho Gardens will become a desirable meeting place. This unique heritage inspired hospitality hotspot will draw the community together and provide locals with exciting amenity in a truly unique setting.
When Canberra was booming in the 1960s, the Northbourne Precinct was conceived. New high-density modernist buildings would line the gateway boulevard to serve as accommodation for the fledgling public service.
Soho will reimagine the gateway boulevard precinct for the 21st century by reappropriating three representative samples into a buzzing hospitality hub.
Specialist heritage architects at Conrad Gargett have collaborated on the masterplan to intertwine new and old. New buildings will meet the city's growing need for densification while honouring the original modernist ideas.
