MASTER PLAN FOR JUNCTION PLACE REVAMP FINALISED

The master plan for Junction Place in central Wodonga has been finalised and will be submitted to Council.

Labor Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, welcomed the submission of the master plan development, which includes a new market hall, offices, residential homes and retail space.

The development, known as ‘Station 73’, will also include extra parking, new parkland and an entertainment precinct, including a cinema and hotel.

Station 73 is being delivered by Wodonga-based developer Central Place Pty Ltd and will double the size of Wodonga’s central business district.

“The Junction Place redevelopment is the largest urban renewal project anywhere in regional Australia, and recently won the prestigious Judge’s Award – Regional Victoria from the Urban Development Institute,” Ms Symes said.

“If approval is received from Council, Central Place expects to start construction mid-next year.

“This is the next step in this amazing redevelopment, which will double the size of the CBD and bring new life to the heart of Wodonga.

“Station 73 will support employment and boost the local economy – creating hundreds of jobs during construction, and ongoing roles in the hotel, shops and entertainment precinct once the project is complete.”
