Arts Precinct Transformation

Development Victoria is delivering the transformation of the Melbourne Arts Precinct, Australia’s largest cultural infrastructure project, on behalf of Melbourne Arts Precinct Corporation.

What is happening?

The $1.7 billion project will transform Melbourne’s creative precinct – attracting visitors, creating jobs and establishing creative spaces and a vibrant new Public Realm in the heart of the city. Early works are now underway.

The Melbourne Arts Precinct transformation project will deliver:

  • 18,000 square metre public parkland
  • more space for outdoor art and performances
  • new connections into and through the arts precinct
  • improved all-abilities access
  • new restaurants and bar spaces
  • significant upgrades to Arts Centre Melbourne’s Theatres Building
  • The Fox: NGV Contemporary gallery
