Fishermans Bend is Australia’s largest urban renewal project covering approximately 480 hectares in the heart of Melbourne. Fishermans Bend will consist of five precincts across two municipalities – the City of Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip – and connects Melbourne’s CBD to the bay.
It is expected that by 2050, it will be home to approximately 80,000 residents and provide employment for up to 80,000 people.
With the Fishermans Bend Framework released in late 2018, the next exciting stage of the project is planning for the future of Fishermans Bend’s distinct precincts. The Victorian Government gathered feedback from May to June to help guide the development of precinct implementation plans for Fishermans Bend.
