East Werribee is a project of state significance and will be the biggest development to take place in greater Melbourne.
The East Werribee Employment Precinct has operated as an important state research and technology precinct for over 100 years and features world-class research, medical and educational organisations.
775 hectares of predominantly greenfield Victorian State Government land is being released for mixed-use city development, to build upon its strength as a specialised technology cluster and grow Werribee as the Capital of Melbourne’s New West.
This development will be a magnet for large-scale public and private investments delivering over 58,000 jobs over a wide range of sectors.
A central lake surrounded by waterways and parklands will provide a scenic focal point for a vibrant new town centre precinct in East Werribee. The town centre will be surrounded by major health, learning and commercial precincts to create a radically enhanced service sector for Melbourne’s New West.
With Wyndham City and the Victorian State Government committed to its development, East Werribee will provide quality professional employment opportunities to address the significant and growing demand in the region.
