Why Choose Docklands?

As of the Millennium, apart from the Etihad Stadium, Docklands was a vacant piece of land. Today, Docklands, in the heart of Melbourne, is being transformed into a modern residential, commercial and visitor destination.

The $17.5bn Docklands project was started in 2000 and is expected to be completed by 2025. It is one of Melbourne’s largest infrastructure developments.

Docklands plays an increasingly important role in the growth of Melbourne as a global city, helping to secure the title of the world’s most liveable city in 2011. The Docklands area, with all its amenities and great waterside location, has quickly become the hub for professional people to work, live and play in.

Docklands is a city extending from the CBD. When complete in 2025, its space will consist of:

  • Commercial = 44%
  • Residential = 44%
  • Retail = 7%
  • Hotel = 1%
  • Other = 4%

By Dec 2012

  1. Residents = 8,000
  2. Workers = 30,000

As you can see, the ratio of workers to residents far outstrips the ratio of commercial to residential space, making it an ideal location for investment and renting out to professionals, with high rental return.

By 2025

  1. Residents = 20,000
  2. Workers = 60,000+

By 2025, the number of workers will have doubled, pushing demand, and likewise rents, even higher.

As at June 2012

$8.5bn of development was completed or under construction, with a further $9bn of development forecast by 2025.
