In the heart of Lane Cove, near our Lane Cove head office is a vibrant new community precinct – The Canopy.
The Canopy was delivered by ADCO Construction in July 2020. The project involved redeveloping the existing Rosenthal Car Park into a new 4-level car park with underground parking with rooftop retail precinct and open space.
Underpinning the design inspiration by Arcadia Landscape Architecture, with delivery by Scott Carver, is the integration between the built form and the landscape – a combination of commercial activation and civic responsibility that has retained the village atmosphere.
The car park rooftop includes a restaurant area with indoor and outdoor seating and an amphitheatre. There is play equipment with BBQ facilities and amenities, and extensive landscaping with a ‘green wall’ vertical garden and a footbridge to provide pedestrian connectivity.
Glascott managed the installation of the playground equipment, street furniture, and created picnic areas, pathways, and the green spaces. Careful attention was made to sculpting the finished levels to maximise seating opportunities in front of the ampitheatre stage. Selecting turf underlay with high drainage properties that will contain the rainfall within the turf area was critical.
