Macaulay Renewal Precinct

Spanning roughly 90 hectares of land, just northwest of the CBD, the Macaulay Renewal Precinct is a shining exemplar of urban renewal.

Encompassing parts of Kensington and North Melbourne, the area will transform into an iconic, mixed-use neighbourhood, while retaining its unique inner-city charm. The Macaulay Renewal Precinct demonstrates the Victorian Government’s vision for workplace clusters, concentrated in the city’s vibrant, twenty-first century suburbs.
