our story

Rock Development Group (Rock DG) has an established reputation for identifying new areas of opportunity in sustainable innovation within the local Canberra market. We believe in staying ahead of the pack and raising the bar in everything we do.

Over the years the group has set precedents in local development, starting out with the refurbishment of the rundown heritage listed Melbourne Building in Canberra’s town centre, moving on to the acquisition and widespread redevelopment of the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets. The redevelopment kept the traditional style of the market atmosphere and updated infrastructure and facade now making it an iconic and popular shopping hub for local Canberran’s.


In addition, Rock DG has a portfolio of various commercial and residential properties in Canberra providing the highest quality and standard in all property services with our primary objective to negotiate the best possible leasing agreements and tenancies for our clients.

The most significant project to date was the procurement of the land surrounding the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets in 2009 which is currently under development to establish one of Australia’s first sustainable communities aptly named loop. Underpinned by the Green Building Council of Australia’s (GBCA) Green Star Communities PILOT Tool, loop will attempt to achieve the best possible practice of sustainability in a precinct wide development encapsulating residential and commercial spaces through sustainable innovation and technology.


Our vision for loop is to create beautiful spaces that people want to live, work and play in. Create buildings that are constructed in such a manner, that they will provide returns in the future and create a sustainable environment for generations to come.

Working closely with architects, urban planners, landscape architects, builders, public artists, local community figures and surrounding businesses – Rock DG draws upon it surrounds to deliver the highest quality projects.

Through skilled marketing, Rock DG ensures that their progressive products reach target markets effectively to obtain optimal sales and leasing enquiries.
