Report captures Docklands at a point in time

03 Aug 2010

VicUrban has prepared and released a slick report on where Docklands stands after the first 10 years of its development.

The 88-page Docklands: The First Decade was launched by the Minster for Planning, Justin Madden, on July 8.

While not containing any real “new” information, the book is valuable insofar as it combines data from various sources and presents it in a single volume.

Presented in a series of chapters, highlights (as presented by VicUrban to consultation forums) include:

Living in Docklands

  • 6000 people;
  • Average age 30;
  • 75 per cent couples without children or singles; and
  • Nearly two thirds of residents are renting.

Working in Docklands

  • 19,000 workers;
  • Over 500,000 square metres of office space;
  • 13 per cent of commercial office stock within the City of Melbourne;
  • 52 per cent either 5 or 6 Green Star rating;
  • Six city tram routes;
  • 12,500 permanent off-street car parks;
  • Four bus routes; and
  • 600 metered on-street car parks.

Visiting Docklands

  • 50 per cent visitors in 2008/09 first timers;
  • Attractors were:  newness, major events, dining and shopping;
  • 100 public events held in 2008/09;
  • 87 licensed venues in Docklands (79 per cent restaurants and function venues);
  • 700 serviced apartments and hotel rooms;
