The pavilion is a single-storey space located in the centre of Fitzroy Gardens in East Melbourne. It contains an outdoor terrace and an external service and storage area.

We had three options for the space including removing the building to create open space or leasing it for commercial or not-for-profit use.

Following community engagement and a public expression of interest to lease (EOI) of the Pavilion in Fitzroy Gardens, Council proposed to enter into a lease of the Pavilion with Hugh Allev/Vue Group pursuant to section 115 of the Local Government Act 2020.
