Queen Victoria Market Upgrades

by: on

The City of Melbourne recently announced its charismatic Queen Victoria Market will be awarded with $250 million in upgrades over the next five years.

The historical 140-year-old market is considered by many as the “heart of Melbourne” and is a popular attraction for locals and tourists alike.

The façade in Vic Market's food hall will be restored and so will its iconic Victoria and Elizabeth Street terraces. In keeping its heritage though, City of Melbourne has promised there will “never be a supermarket or large franchise” to accompany the upgrade.

Its Dairy Produce Hall and Fish Hall will receive minor restoration and renovation works, while the heritage-listed sheds will be dismantled and restored. 

Vic Market’s energy footprint will be closely monitored, says City of Melbourne, by saving water and maximising energy efficiency and reducing waste management and recycling. 

Expressions of interest are being taken at the moment as they consider how to fill the proposed 900 square meter glass rooftop space, which will host a variety of plants, fresh produce and entertainment spaces. 

Perhaps most notable will be Queen Vic Market’s carpark transforming into 1.5 hectares of parks and open spaces and renamed as “Market Square,” 

The intersection of Queen and Therry Street will give wayfarers more access to new markets, festivals and public spaces in the new “Market Cross”. Improved bicycle and pedestrian access as well as more public transport have also been promised. 

Planters, bike racks and street furniture such as drinking fountains, park benches and canopies will be installed at the new Queen Victoria Market.
