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 Library with makerspace, affordable housing, a landscaped terrace, an event 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. The Munro site is expected to deliver an estimated $70M public benefit, in one of Australia’s most sustainable mixed-use developments.
