Docklands to Open First Fresh Food Market
Docklands’ latest addition is being billed as the biggest and most accessible supermarket-based fresh food market within 5km of the CBD.
Inner Melbourne’s newest fresh food market is set to officially open with the $70 million redevelopment of a carpark.
Market Lane at Docklands will have 20 specialty stores, including a major Asian grocer, as well as full-line Woolworths and Dan Murphy’s outlets.
It is being billed as the biggest and most accessible supermarket-based fresh food market within 5km of the CBD.
The District Docklands CEO George Karabatsos said the market had an urban feel and look in a rapidly growing area.
Mr Karabatsos said Market Lane aimed to cater for the estimated 10,000 residences and 65,000 office workers based around Victoria Harbour.
“Part of our strategic view is creating the amenity for that harbour, and the growth that we’re seeing on the western side of the CBD” he said.
Market Lane also features The Humble Baker, The Butcher Club, a pharmacy and MarketPlace Fresh.
Originally called Harbour Town, The District Docklands has evolved amid a $150 million revamp by owner AsheMorgan.
