If GWS-Grocon executives are disappointed at having to shrink their $800 million Manuka Oval redevelopment proposal by about a third to assuage community concerns, they were hiding it well on Wednesday. Giants chief operating officer Richard Griffiths maintained that although only 650 apartments (rather than 1000) would be built – and the number of underground car parks provided would go up 20 per cent to 1620 spaces – the consortium still hoped to spend the original $80 million to $100 million budgeted on stadium refurbishments.
