Transformation of Fishermans Bend takes a major step forward

A major step forward in the transformation of Fishermans Bend was announced in September with plans to develop Australia's leading design, engineering and technology district at the General Motors Holden (GMH) site in Salmon Street.

The Government’s strategic purchase of this site, located in the heart of Fishermans Bend will bring together industry leaders in the cutting edge areas of aerospace, defence, marine design, automotive design, and more.

This project will drive private sector investment into the Fishermans Bend Employment Precinct and this strategically located site will see key industry players, education and research organisations work together to grow our design, engineering and technology capital and create thousands of high value jobs.

The GMH site is a key catalyst project for Fishermans Bend and showcases the transition of the Employment Precinct into one of Australia's leading places for leadership in innovation.

Fishermans Bend will play an important role in Melbourne's growth and prosperity, supporting 80,000 residents and 60,000 jobs.

GM Holden is retaining its corporate headquarters, advanced international design studios and engineering facilities on site, with the Victorian Government in talks with major global companies and leading education partners for this new development.
