The development of Darling Harbour in Melbourne is comparable to that of Lujiazui
Speaking of Docklands, some people call it a city harbour area comparable to Sydney’s Darling Harbour, while others say it’s Melbourne’s Lujiazui. )
If it is comparable to Darling Harbour, it must be because Docklands has 44 hectares of urban bay views and 2.5 kilometers of beautiful waterscapes; and the title of “Melbourne’s Lujiazui” is inseparable from the regional rise of Docklands.
The former Docklands is just like the former Lujiazui, just a dock warehouse. Beginning in 1997, the Victorian government has continuously invested in its renovation, the port area has been renovated, and restaurants, bars, office buildings, etc. have sprung up.
After that, well-known companies such as the Australian Taxation Office, Australia and New Zealand Bank (ANZ) headquarters, National Australia Bank (NAB) headquarters, Myer, Medibank, KPMG, Telstra, Facebook, Channel 7 and other well-known enterprises have settled in.
The current Docklands is seamlessly connected with the developed central commercial area of the city, surrounded by high-end residential buildings. While enjoying the civilization and maturity of the metropolitan city, there are still large green spaces and lakes with natural taste.
The current Docklands has developed into a diverse community that can not only survive the wind and rain, but also have a leisurely stroll. The most comfortable and wonderful living environment, lack of any element can not form its unique living value.
Regional development has brought rising housing demand, which has also turned Lujiazui upside down not only in appearance, but also in housing prices. So will Docklands really replicate the glory of Lujiazui?
