What has Docklands achieved?

06 Aug 2017

Docklands continues to pump the state economy with $13 billion private construction investment to date, and a further $6 billion to come by 2025.

Since it started at the turn of the century, Docklands has consistently employed 2500-3000 construction workers annually and currently has $3.1 billion worth of works underway across 13 projects.

More than $600 million has been invested in public infrastructure such as parks, community facilities, roads, tram infrastructure, bridges and roads.

The suburb is currently 60 per cent completed and has so far delivered more than 80,000sqm of commercial office space; more than 165,000 of retail space and nearly 9000 apartments. 

Last year’s census showed that 10,437 people call the suburb home, a couple of thousand less than Development Victoria’s (DV) population estimates. DV expects a final population of 20,000 by 2025.

The government development agency also expects a worker population of 80,000 in 2025 and says the current number is 58,000.

Key projects either underway or still to come include:

  • A new primary school, which was announced for Docklands in April 2017;
  • The revitalisation of Harbour Town;
  • The redevelopment of Etihad Stadium;
  • Some 900 new hotel rooms to be completed here by 2019;
  • Lendlease secured ANZ as the anchor tenant for the Y3 commercial tower adjacent to the existing ANZ headquarters in Victoria Harbour. Construction started in January and will house more than 2000 bank staff;
  • Collins Square: Work is underway on the final of five commercial towers; and
  • Victoria Harbour: 883 Collins St, 889 Collins St, 888 Collins St and The Residences are residential developments recently completed or under construction by Lendlease.  The four projects will deliver 1648 apartments and six townhouses.
