Located in the heart of Geelong, ‘Cunningham Place’ designed by local architects WMK, will set a new benchmark for mixed-use development, and help to activate and revitalise Central Geelong.
If approved, the $250m development will offer more than 1,500 FTE construction jobs per annum over 2 years and 300+ FTE jobs once operational, deliver enhanced community facilities, and stylish upmarket accommodation offerings.
The nearly 5,000m2 development site will feature a hotel, world-class restaurant and café, function & conference centre, supermarket, medical centre, childcare facility, office space and private residential apartments.
The proposed mixed-use development seeks to fuseGeelong’s parkland, emerging civic precinct, and the north-facing Corio Bay. The design response celebrates and expresses Geelong’s rich industrial past, by magnifying visceral connections that remain evident in the urban fabric today, creating a truly contextually responsive, city-shaping project for the future of the city of Geelong.
"This exciting project will create a new landmark destination for the region and is the manifestation of a successful design and collaboration process between WMK, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), City of Greater Geelong, Tract and Amber Property Group.” says Steve Tillinger, WMK Director.
A decision regarding the application is expected later in 2022.
