An old, vacant warehouse has been transformed into a modern retail centre in Fishermans Bend in Victoria – one which is anchored by new Woolworths and Dan Murphy’s stores.
Located in the industrial section of Port Melbourne, the 13,500 square metre Fishermans Bend centre was developed by Goodman Group, and features reused structural materials and the facade of the original warehouse – minimising construction costs and waste – as well as an energy efficient design.
According to Goodman Group general manager of Australia Jason Little, this is part of Goodman Group’s strategy: to use brownfield sites to have an overall lower impact on the environment, and embedding itself into established communities
“We are committed to breathing new life into the broader Fishermans Bend precinct and the delivery of new retail is a critical part of that ambition,” said Little.
“This project provides important new amenity to the community and highlights the untapped potential of older warehouses in the precinct.
“Our strategy is to own assets in markets where barriers to entry are high, supply is limited, and demand is robust.”
