There are also a number of low-rise office blocks in the suburb, including the Canberra offices of News Corporation and Colmar Brunton and the headquarters of the ACT division of the Australian Labor Party.

Away from the commercial areas, much of the previously suburban housing in Braddon has been replaced with apartment buildings which are popular for some due to their relatively close proximity to Civic. Fenner Hall a residence of the Australian National University is located along Northbourne Avenue.
