More than 6000 new workers will move into Docklands offices this month.

The Marsh Mercer building at Collins Square will welcome 2000 workers while 4500 NAB employees will move into the new office at 700 Bourke St.

According to Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson the level of construction in Docklands is outpacing development elsewhere in the CBD.

He said there were currently nine projects under construction with a development value of $1.8 billion.

Mr Wilson said that by the end of the year, the completion of EXO, Forte and The Quays would deliver a further 632 apartments, while Docklands’ worker population would reach about 40,000.

“Upon completion in approximately 2025, Docklands is anticipated to have attracted $17.5 billion in private sector investment and have a residential population of 20,000 and worker population of 60,000,” Mr Wilson said.
