If you wander around Docklands this summer, you’d be forgiven for thinking it is fully developed. It is beautiful, functional and, in many ways, has a complete feel to it. It will surprise many visitors to learn that, although it offers so much already, there is much still to come. As one of the premier event venues in Docklands and the city, Harbour Kitchen are excited for the future of Melbourne’s stand-out suburb.
Places Victoria, who oversee development work in Docklands, recently announced that only 60 per cent of the area has been fully developed. With billions of dollars worth of investment being pumped into current and future projects, the rise of Docklands as one of Australia’s premier waterfront locations looks assured. Amongst all this development and significant changes, Harbour Kitchen has remained a constant. We’ve watched the Docklands project take shape over the years and gone through some development of our own, building a reputation as one of the brightest lights f Melbourne’s event venues.
What can you expect to see in Docklands over the next year or two?
The current, scheduled and proposed developments are all very exciting and will further add to the appeal and liveability of the waterfront area. At present, large scale projects include M Docklands at Victoria Harbour, Marina Tower and Aqui at NewQuay, and Forge at Wharf’s Entrance. Looking ahead, construction of Banksia Tower will begin shortly, further residential buildings are earmarked and Hoyts Cinema will have eight screens in Waterfront City.
These will all be further draw-cards to what is already a fantastic place to visit. You can also expect Harbour Kitchen to continue to provide the very best function experience for thousands of guests every month. We’re dedicated to serving the Docklands and wider Melbourne communities, and maintaining our position as one of the city’s premier event venues.
