Urban Tourism: Fishermans Bend NEIC (GMH to Gateway HUB)
February 1, 2023, 4:30-8:30pm
Join other UDFA members for a tour of Fishermans Bend NEIC at 4:30 pm with various stops from the GMH Site, along Turner Street transformation and arriving at the Gateway HUB for dinner and drinks from food trucks. Your ticket includes admission to the tour, a meal from the local food truck (Kimu Korean and Japanese Eatery) and a drink in the riverside bar hosted by CBCo. Please note that this is a 25-person maximum event, so get in quickly.
The Fishermans Bend Innovation Precinct presents the unique opportunity to create 21st-century jobs at the former General Motors Holden (GMH) site. In May 2021, the Victorian Government announced a $179.4 million funding package to kick-start the Fishermans Bend Innovation Precinct. On the day of the tour, we will hear about the aspirations for the precinct, the transformation strategy and the innovative work underway from representatives of DJPR, the University of Melbourne and teams leading the transformation of Turner Street (Including the Smart City Incubator).
Our last stop at Gateway Hub will have the presence of local brewery CBCo, hosting a monthly pop-up bar by the river, with beers and cider made in Fishermans Bend and wine and non-alcoholic drinks too. The food truck Kimu Korean and Japanese Eatery will serve Japanese gyoza, dumplings and rice dishes. All with views over the river and live beats curated by the fabulous team from The BandWagon.
This event is exclusive to Urban Design Forum Members, but everyone is welcome to join Gateway Hub for food and drinks!
