Clues say Docklands is all growth

04 Oct 2018

The City of Melbourne’s latest Census of Land Use and Employment (CLUE) data highlights Docklands as a growth hotspot – comparing data from 2007 to 2017.

The data was collected last year and recorded growth essentially across the board in Docklands, while the CBD and Southbank show zigzagging in some top fields of employment.

The CLUE website describes the narrative behind the growth: “Docklands has undergone a major transformation since the beginning of its redevelopment in the early 2000s. The former dock and port area is now a major office and residential precinct.”

Over the past 10 years, floor space has increased by 15 million square metres.

All types of employment – full-time, casual, contractor, part-time – have grown. The top three employing industries – finance and insurance, public administration and safety, and business services – all recorded massive growth.

Full-time employment has grown by 176 per cent, contractor by 153 per cent, casual by 52 per cent and part-time by 338 per cent.

Breaking down the number of jobs provided in Docklands, finance and insurance has grown by 212 per cent, public administration and safety by almost 91 per cent, and business services by 444 per cent.

Office space has grown by 51 per cent, parking by 14 per cent and residential accommodation by 33 per cent.
