We are transforming the former Fitzroy Gasworks site into a vibrant new neighbourhood in the heart of Melbourne, close to services, the CBD and public transport.
As 2021 draws to a close, we're pleased to share a community update on this exciting project, in which you'll find:
Our work with the community
Between 10 November and 8 December 2021, we shared our Development Plan with the community to see how your vision and ideas came to life. We held five information sessions to answer any questions about the plan. The Development Plan will be submitted to the Minister for Planning for approval.
Fitzroy Gasworks Sports Centre
The Fitzroy Gasworks Sports Centre, a multi-purpose indoor sports centre, adjacent to Wurun Senior Campus, is a key element of the Victorian Government’s vision for the Fitzroy Gasworks precinct. The centre will be the first vertically designed sports centre of its kind to be built in Australia. We are now working on design concepts and recruiting a construction partner. It is anticipated works will commence mid-2022 and construction will be completed in late 2023.
The update also looks at the Wurun Senior Campus which is on track to welcome students and teachers for Term 1, 2022, as well as the Department of Transports upgrade of the intersection of Queens Pde and George St, North Fitzroy.
