Owned by CorVal, the newly refurbished 17 Moore Street building in Canberra’s CBD was officially opened last week, 2 August 2017. The PCA event was well attended which positively reflects the interest from the property community.

peckvonhartel completed a design transformation which has re-branded the building with an extensive refurbishment internally and externally. 17 Moore Street now offers a chic and boutique style building in the heart of the Canberra CBD.

The re-design has dramatically changed the exterior of the building, with a striking dark façade and a silver blade vertical element to accentuate the new entry foyer and canopy. The foyer uses geometry and timber to create an interesting and elegant ambiance which is enhanced through the use of graffiti art and playful pendant lights to add drama and sophistication to the ground floor.

The use of graffiti artwork has complemented and enlivened the new hotel style end of trip facilities and the upper levels have been upgraded including bathrooms, lift lobbies and general office spaces. The top level offers an executive style amenity with stunning views across Black Mountain and the inner northern suburbs which are now better enjoyed by the introduction of a BBQ area and pergola structure on the balcony.

The building energy performance has also being improved with the inclusion of a new solar energy system, solar panels and LED lighting. This has seen the building achieve a 5-star NABERS Energy rating with the potential of reaching 5.5-stars once fully leased.
