A vision for the five distinct precincts

In addition to setting renewal benchmarks and sustainability objectives for the renewal of Fishermans Bend as a whole, the Vision also establishes clear direction and a distinct character for the redevelopment of each of Fishermans Bend’s five precincts:

Montague – a diverse and well-connected mixed-use precinct celebrating its significant cultural and built heritage, and network of gritty streets and laneways.

Sandridge – one of Melbourne’s premium office and commercial centres, balanced with diverse housing and retail.

Wirraway – a family friendly inner city neighbourhood close to the bay and Westgate Park.

Lorimer – a vibrant, mixed-use precinct close to the Yarra River and connected to Melbourne’s CBD, Docklands and emerging renewal areas.

Employment Precinct – internationally renowned as a centre of innovation in advanced manufacturing, engineering and urban design.
