The City of Melbourne its plan for the new Macaulay precinct near North Melbourne.
The 90 hectares of land is expect to be home to more than 9,000 residents, and close to 5,000 works by 2036 according to Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp.
“Developing this precinct will require a huge range of skilled workers from tradespeople to architects and urban planners. It’s expected to create thousands of jobs for our community over the life of the project.
“We also want to make sure this new inner-city neighbourhood is a welcoming home for the thousands of residents expected to move there in the coming years.
“The vision for Macaulay is a mid-rise precinct that is part of the broader North Melbourne and Kensington areas with a range of shops, services and jobs a short distance from homes.
“We need to plan now to deliver well-connected streets that encourage walking and cycling and green space,” said Capp.
