The development will consist of retail, residential, hospitality, commercial, and community use buildings and is set to transform West Melbourne. The site occupies five parcels of land in West Melbourne and the new development will encompass footpaths, 800 meters of bike lanes as well as green lane-way with connections to the river promoting health and wellness amongst building occupants and the community.
It also benefits from access to South Kensington Station, direct vehicle access to CityLink via Dynon Road, and to Melbourne’s north, east, and west via CityLink.
