Emerging and Future developments

Emerging and new employment precincts will support job creation and diverse employment opportunities for our existing and future residents.

4 Ten Epping

4Ten Epping is approximately 62 hectares of industrial land wholly owned and developed by Frasers Property Industrial. This precinct is situated within the prominent Cooper Street Employment precinct and will further strengthen the competitive advantage of the Cooper Street West Employment precinct.

 

O’Herns Logistics Park

This prominent site was recently approved to be rezoned is to increase the availability of employment land in the area and the municipality more broadly. It was considered that the rezoning would provide several hundred local jobs for existing and future residents within the City of Whittlesea.

O’Herns Logistics Park is for large-scale industrial businesses looking to grow in the heart of Melbourne’s booming northern industrial corridor. This site is set across approximately 140 hectares of new employment land, creating the opportunity for the creation of new businesses and approximately 4,000 jobs.

 

Cooper T&P

A Time & Place project, Cooper T&P offers prime industrial land in the most prominent location of Cooper Street Epping with lot sizes available from 1,000m2.

 

New Epping

Managed by Riverlee, New Epping, located at 215 Cooper Street Epping, is positioned to become a unique mixed-use precinct providing health, commercial and residential opportunities across the 51-hectare site.

 

Mernda Town Centre

Our longstanding vision for the Mernda Town Centre - to be located at the corner of Bridge Inn Road and Plenty Road - is for a traditional centre focussed around a main street. It will be pedestrian-friendly, well serviced by public transport and supported by a mix of land uses.

Once developed, this 20-hectare site will provide a mix of commercial, retail, mixed use and residential product to the Mernda Catchment.

 

Beveridge Intermodal Freight Terminal

The Victorian Government has identified Beveridge as the preferred location for an interstate freight hub to maximise productivity in Australia’s freight network. Over 1000 hectares of land has been identified for the proposed Beveridge Intermodal Freight Terminal and associated freight and logistics based industrial area. The site is currently owned and will be developed by Qube, Australia’s largest integrated provider of import and export logistic services.

Once operational, the terminal will enable freight to be transferred from Victoria’s two largest ports of Melbourne and Geelong to the rest of Australia. The proposed site is positioned east of the Melbourne Sydney rail line and north of the E6 Freeway reservation and is strategically located to maximise links to the Melbourne Sydney-Brisbane rail line, Hume Freeway and proposed Outer Metropolitan Ring Road.

 

Shenstone Park

Shenstone Park Precinct Structure Plan has been identified as a project on the VPA’s Fast Track Program.

The Shenstone Park Precinct Structure Plan applies to approximately 628 hectares of land generally bounded by Donnybrook Road to the north, the Urban Growth Boundary to the east, the Wollert suburb boundary to the south, and the Sydney/Melbourne railway corridor to the west. The precinct lies immediately south of the Donnybrook/Woodstock Precinct Structure Plan area and east of the English Street Precinct Structure Plan area, while the Donnybrook Train Station is just outside the north west corner of the precinct.

The precinct accommodates a mix of residential, employment, recreational and community uses which integrates with the neighbouring Wollert and Donnybrook-Woodstock Precinct Structure Plans.

 

Wollert

The Wollert area is expected to accommodate around 35,000 to 40,000 over the next several decades and approximately 8,000 job opportunities will be created.

An employment hub is located along Epping Road and the future Outer Melbourne Ring Road / E6 corridor. The area is zoned for development, including a major town centre and within proximity to utility services.
