Expansion takes shape

09 Mar 2017

Expansion takes shape Image

The $300 million expansion of the South Wharf precinct is well on track for scheduled completion early next year.

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) gave Southbank Local News a site tour last month to see how the exciting transformation of the precinct was taking shape.

With construction of the multi-level car park nearing completion, work is already well underway on the adjoining 331-room hotel, which will be operated by new owners Action Hotels.

With construction led by Probuild, major works have also commenced on MCEC’s new exhibition space, which will add an additional 17,500 sqm of exhibition and adaptable event spaces to the precinct.  

Upon completion, MCEC will have over 40,000 sqm of pillar-less exhibition space, which will make it Australia’s biggest convention and exhibition centre.
