So proud to be included in the announcement of the first two suburbs for the new West Belconnen development. Suburb number one is called Strathnairn and calls to mind the existing arts precinct and the farm which the Baird family owned and named. The naming of the suburb speaks to the inclusive nature of the new development which will border and almost curve around Strathnairn Arts in a semicircle and the sympathy between the rural creative precinct and the urban sustainable development which will see Strathnairn with new neighbours from 2018.
