Presidential intrigue in Docklands

03 Jul 2014

Bill and Hillary Clinton are expected to visit Docklands this month, with Victoria Harbour tipped to be a major focus of their visit.

Mr Clinton was last month announced as a prominent speaker at the AIDS 2014 conference, which will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from July 20 to July 25.

Docklands News understands the Clintons plan to visit sustainable buildings in Docklands while in Melbourne.

According to the Victoria Harbour website, the precinct has the highest concentration of green buildings in Australia, making it an obvious choice for the visit.

These include Forte, the first cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in Australia and the new Library at the Dock, Australia’s most sustainable public building.

In 2009 Bill Clinton named Victoria Harbour as one of 16 projects worldwide to be included in the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) global Climate Positive Development program, further strengthening the Clintons’ ties with the precinct.

Involvement with the Clinton Initiative means Victoria Harbour developer Lend Lease has received assistance from the Climate Positive Development Program throughout the development of the precinct.

It’s also been rumoured Mr Clinton will perform the coin-toss ahead of an AFL game at Etihad Stadium.

However, an AFL spokesperson did not confirm the rumour.
