Docklands’ new marina lounge opens

Docklands’ new marina lounge opens Image

Melbourne City Marina has opened its new lounge and its operators hope the facility will attract more boats to Victoria Harbour.

The new facility includes an outdoor deck with water and city views, a lounge area, a kitchen and shower and laundry facilities. The City of Melbourne’s waterways unit has also moved into new offices in the facility.

The new lounge and office is located in the former Fix nightclub at the NewQuay Piazza, which council purchased for $1.95 million in 2013. According to Cr Richard Foster, the new facility offered a unique boating destination in the heart of the city.

“The marina lounge and on-shore facilities aims to increase boating visitation and on-water activity in Docklands and create a hub of activity within the Victoria Harbour precinct,” Cr Foster said. He said the new marina lounge reaffirmed the council’s commitment to ensuring Docklands was a thriving community with imaginative and well-designed places.

“We believe that fostering more colour and movement on the water will enhance the waterfront experience for visitors, and create a drawcard for the Docklands community,” he said. “The new lounge, where the waterways office is located also provides our officers with greater observational control of the precinct and waterways.”
