Since May 2017, The District Docklands has undergone a significant transformation! Works commenced on the exciting new dining and entertainment precinct which will introduce the most technologically advanced HOYTS experience, Archie Brothers Electric Circus, 8Eight Street Asian hawker-style restaurant and Urban Alley Brewery along with other food and beverage offerings, opening September 2018.

In November 2017, we introduced H&M and 40 new and upgraded stores giving you more choice. On top of all this, we made upgrades throughout the precinct including the addition of a new roof, wind solutions, new greening and landscaping, plus wayfinding signage that now make spending a day at The District Docklands even more enjoyable.


To celebrate the official commencement of construction of Melbourne’s most anticipated food precinct, THE MARKET, The District Docklands team "cracked the concrete" of the East Car Park on Tuesday 15 May, to pave the way for an internationally-inspired marketplace, boasting twenty-five specialty retailers.

THE MARKET will include a Woolworths supermarket, complimented by Dan Murphy’s, a large scale Asian Grocer and Priceline Pharmacy. Plus, the addition of a Medical Centre as well as health and beauty services will complete the convenience offer, making The District Docklands a convenient destination for your everyday needs.

Melburnians will have the opportunity to visit a fresh food precinct that includes butchers, delis, bakers, coffee roasters and cafes, from mid-2019 when THE MARKET officially opens.
