Queen Victoria market set for redevelopment
By Scott Dywer on 09 April 2019
Melbourne’s Queen Victoria market is set for redevelopment with the aim of improving market infrastructure and preserving the market’s heritage.
The renewal plan for the project includes additional car parking, improved safety and amenities, trader storage, centralised waste and recycling facilities and 1.5 hectares of new open public space. With the panel setting a goal to deliver 1000 car parks for market customers, a 40-member People’s Panel and the 2015 Master Plan have helped set the direction for the delivery of the infrastructure.
In addition, a $19 million investment to provide 500 customer car parks on a future Southern Development site on Franklin Street has been up for consideration, with another 500 delivered as part of the Munro development in 2021.
