Expressions of interests are open for the sale of The Lobby, 7 King George Terrace.

The Lobby, pictured above in its heyday, currently comprises of a restaurant and kiosk located within Canberra’s Parliamentary Zone, and forms part of the Commonwealth Heritage-listed Parliament House Vista.

National Capital Authority Chief Planner, Andrew Smith, said the iconic building of historical significance has for more than 50 years maintained a strong name widely recognised within the community.

“This sale presents an opportunity for the private sector to invest in and reinvigorate a much loved Canberra landmark. We’re eager to see a revitalisation of the space, which has the potential to continue to be a successful establishment in one of Canberra’s most prominent locations”, Mr Smith said.

The NCA assessed the heritage values of The Lobby and whilst not currently heritage listed, the NCA will continue to ensure that the heritage values are protected once the property is sold.
