Bolte Precinct West

Originally part of the Yarra’s Edge precinct, Bolte Precinct West is a sub-precinct that emerged after the initial development of Docklands. It's directly adjacent to the Bolte Bridge.

The vision for this precinct is for public/community space, a residential offering and a City of Melbourne Waterways operations precinct.

Location

Yarra’s Edge is the only Docklands precinct south of the Yarra River, located between the river, city and bay.

Bound by the Yarra River, Lorimer Street and the Bolte Bridge, Yarra’s Edge is 2.4km from the city and in close proximity to the South Wharf retail, and Crown entertainment precincts.
