The Port Approach precinct will become a new business park of light industrial uses on the northern side of the Port River Expressway with office, commercial and mixed-use development providing a buffer from industry and transitioning to residential buildings along the waterfront.
Residential development of Port Approach (South) has been awarded to the successful proponent, Starfish Developments. It will take advantage of the waterfront and views of Dock One and McLarens Wharf and provide a significant landscaped public open space. The planned waterfront promenade will provide a continuous pedestrian and cycling pathway through to Dock One and McLarens Wharf.
Flanked by residential development, the Dock One marina provides opportunity for over water development at its eastern end, including cafés and restaurants.
In the long term, the waterfront area north of the bridge will accommodate offices, storage, warehousing, bulky goods and light industrial uses.
