A Melbourne treasure has a new community heart. Melbourne’s largest community hub is a vital part of the $250m Queen Victoria Market Renewal, built on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. Backed by sustainability and user experience design values, the 11-level tower hosts a suite of new community facilities including the City of Melbourne’s new rooftop library, affordable housing, wellbeing and creative spaces, an auditorium and fine grain retail.

Updating the Queen Vic precinct with active laneways and modern community amenity gifts a new public heart to a much-loved Melbourne treasure.
