Stage 2 Begins On The Melbourne Park Redevelopment


The Victorian Government has announced the launch of the $388 million second stage of the Melbourne Park Redevelopment.

The second stage includes a new administration and media building, new pedestrian entries and improvements to Rod Laver Arena.

According to Urbanalyst, in November last year,

Hassell was awarded the design contract for the administration and media Building, with

Cox Architecture receiving the contract for the refurbishment of Rod Laver Arena.

John Wardle Architects won the contract for design of the new Batman Avenue footbridge.

According to Major Projects Victoria, the redevelopment includes the following components:

  • Administration and Media Building – the eight-storey building includes new administration facilities for Melbourne & Olympic Parks and Tennis Australia, as well as temporary media and broadcast facilities for the Australian Open.
  • Batman Avenue Bridge – providing a new primary pedestrian entrance to the precinct from the city, including a connection with Birrarung Marr to provide direct access from Flinders Street Station.
  • Rod Laver Arena refurbishment – including an expanded public concourse space, accessible entrances to the seating bowl, significant back-of-house improvements and a new eastern-facing primary entrance with food and beverage facilities and toilets.
