Paving the way for a market

29 May 2018

Paving the way for a market Image

By Emma Doherty

The District Docklands is paving the way for culinary experiences with the launching of a new internationally-inspired marketplace.

The Market will see the ground floor and mezzanine of the existing East Car Park transformed into a new shopping, entertainment, dining and fresh food destination.

On May 15, to commemorate the start of construction, dignitaries symbolically cracked the car park’s concrete floor with sledge hammers.

Part of a $150 million redevelopment and due for completion in mid-2019, The Market draws inspiration from the likes of New York’s Chelsea Market, deepening Melbourne’s appreciation for the culinary experience. It will also draw inspiration from Melbourne’s iconic laneways and culture.

AsheMorgan principal, Alton Abrahams, said: “The District Docklands is the shining star in Melbourne’s largest urban renewal project, providing a convenient hub that caters to everyone’s needs. The newest development, The Market showcases our commitment to delivering the best Melbourne has to offer in Docklands.”

Having evolved from an industrial hub to a thriving community, Docklands is already home to 11,000 residents and that number is expected to grow upwards of 20,000 by 2025.

According to Planning Minister Richard Wynne, we “will see successively over the next few years, just how the Docklands will become a really vibrant community.”
