Docklands opens to the public

03 Jul 2012

Docklands has plenty on offer this year for the annual Open House Melbourne days on July 28 and 29.

The event provides people with a free and unique opportunity to discover a hidden wealth of architectural and historic wonders nestled around Melbourne.

This year, there are several buildings in Docklands opening to the public for the first time.

Included in the program is Forté, Australia’s first high-rise apartment and the tallest in the world using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT).  People will have the opportunity to walk through a partially complete apartment and see up close the revolutionary new material to Australia.

Luxury residential apartment building, Convesso Concavo, in Victoria Harbour is also taking part. The building officially reaches completion in early August.  

Other buildings around Docklands involved in Open House Melbourne include Central Pier, the Innovation Building in Digital Harbour, Goods Shed North, Mission to Seafarers and The Kangan Institute Automotive Centre of Excellence.

Open House spokesperson Robert Larocca said “In five short years Open House Melbourne has become a major winter event in the city. Last year there were 106,000 visits to 75 buildings and, with 100 buildings this year, it is expected to be even more popular.

For more detail on the buildings open over the weekend and a full program, visit http://www.openhousemelbourne.org
