Development Victoria is supporting the delivery of a new Town Centre at Werribee in Melbourne’s west.
The new Town Centre would be built as part of the Riverwalk residential development – which is located three kilometers from the Werribee Town Centre and is focused on delivering affordable and diverse housing opportunities for individuals, couples and families.
The site is already home to more than 2,500 residents – and includes 1,500 lots, a primary school, an early education centre and two community parks, both of which feature play equipment, shelters, barbecues and a range of other facilities.
The Town Centre – which has been a key feature of the vision for Riverwalk since the original Development Plan was approved by Wyndham City Council in 2010 - would include a range of commercial and retail uses, as well as a mix of townhouses.
The new Town Centre has been part of the Riverwalk vision for over a decade, and the sale of this site is an exciting milestone for the development
Oreana Group has since been appointed to deliver the commercial component of the Town Centre after a recent sales campaign saw the Group purchase the three-hectare site.
The commercial zoned land is anticipated to include a supermarket, along with a range of other specialty retail shops and services.
Development Victoria’s Group Head, Property, Penny Forrest said the new Town Centre would support the growing community and provide a much-needed retail hub for residents and visitors to Riverwalk.
“With 2,500 residents already calling Riverwalk home – this new Town Centre will benefit the whole community with a range of commercial and retail offerings,” Ms Forrest said.
“It will also attract more people to the area – with the site conveniently located three kilometers from the Werribee Town Centre."
“The new Town Centre has been part of the Riverwalk vision for over a decade, and the sale of this site is an exciting milestone for the development.”
Riverwalk is being delivered by Development Victoria, the Victorian Government’s property development and major projects agency, in partnership with Melbourne Water.
The residential component of the Riverwalk Town Centre has been set aside for future development.
