Crace was named after Edward Kendall Crace an original settler in the Gungahlin area.
Crace is arguably the best placed new suburb in Canberra, on the fringe of the inner north. It's
nestled on a beautiful, undulating site between the existing suburbs of Giralang and
Palmerston, just off the Barton Highway.
There's easy access via Barton Highway and Northbourne Avenue, while Gungahlin and
Belconnen Town Centres are just minutes away.
Streets in Crace are named after parishes and land divisions from colonial times. It is bounded
by the Barton Highway, Gungahlin Drive and Nudurr Drive. Located in the suburb is the
Canberra Nature Park of Gungaderra Grasslands Nature Reserve.
The suburb is planned. Road construction commenced in July 2008. The construction of 21
display homes commenced in October 2008. The ACT government has selected developers for
the area as Defence Housing Australia and Canberra Investment Corporation.
The developers are expected to make $60,000,000 but have to share half that with the
government. Some very small blocks will be released for low cost housing with 85% released
for high cost housing.
It is expected, when completed, Crace will have 1500 houses on 140 hectares.
Public transport will be a key feature at Crace, with the majority of homes located within 400m
of a bus stop.
