Developer JWLand has reached a milestone with their Embark development on Northbourne Avenue, with the topping out of the building on Friday 13 December.
JWLand, along with Cockram Constructions, celebrated the milestone – the completion of the top floor structure – with an event on Embark’s top floor. Speeches explained the history behind placing a tree on top of the building. The practice can be traced back to an ancient Scandinavian tradition. Placing a tree on the top of a new building appeases the tree-dwelling spirits disturbed during construction.
Embark is located in Lyneham, less than 3km from the Canberra CBD with views across to Black Mountain Tower and Mount Ainslie. The development will comprise 160 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments across a seven-storey building, with construction expected to be completed mid-next year.
