WIN News's former TV studio in Kingston is set to be transformed into more than 100 apartments as part of a multi-million dollar development.
Plans for the Wentworth Avenue site would see a seven-storey building with 134 apartments constructed on the former TV studio.
The development would also take in the neighbouring Maggie Shepherd building.
The proposal would see one, two and three-bedroom apartments built on the site, with underground car parking and a large communal garden.
Plans for the development would allow for some ground floor apartments to be adapted for commercial space.
A community meeting on the proposal for nearby residents has been scheduled for June 5.
Win put the building on the market back in 2015 ahead of the company's move to their new facility in Fyshwick.
After it was passed in at auction, the studio was sold in October 2015 for $2.44 million to Boss Constructions, which owned the neighbouring site.
An original development application for the site, with a similar number of apartments and a three-level basement car park, was lodged in 2016, with construction estimated to cost $32 million.
However, construction on the development did not take place, with the buildings remaining empty for the past three years.
Kingston residents at the time raised issue with overshadowing, privacy and the height of the building.
A new design for the site was commissioned in early 2019, with slight changes made to the original design, before it was unveiled earlier this month.
The new design would see the building set back further from the street, with a larger garden at the back of the site.
A new verge alongside nearby Burke Crescent would also feature in the new design, which would provide space for visitor parking.
The new proposal would also see an extra seven apartments added to the original design.
A development application for the redesigned development has not been lodged with the ACT government.
It's expected the application would be lodged following community consultation.
While the original design was put forward by Sydney-based firm Redgen Mathieson, the revised plan was designed by Canberra group Stewart Artchitecture.
