The Hellenic Precinct redevelopment also includes a roofed ‘Agora’ — the Greek word for gathering place — and two levels of commercial space for restaurants, shops, a bar, gym and day spa.

The Woden site will also feature a new auditorium, multicultural facilities as well as four levels of basement parking.

The club’s three development applications have been approved by the ACT’s Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate.

Club officials previously said the move was to reduce its reliance on poker machines and futureproof the club.

“We have held true to our focus on a non-residential development and identified multiple commercial anchors to drive foot traffic and visitation to our site and the broader Town Centre,” Hellenic Club Board president Andrew Satsias said.
