Multiplex has completed a billion-dollar mixed-use M-City development on behalf of Schiavello Group, one of the largest master-planned community single stage developments undertaken in Victoria to date.
Designed by The Buchan Group, M-City is located in Clayton, part of Melbourne’s South East growth corridor.
Works commenced in July 2018, with construction spanning a two-year period with up to 1100 workers on-site during peak periods.
The 30,000 square metres site has a combined built area over 18 hectares.
According to Multiplex, an industry first was also achieved during the construction of M-City with the utilisation of hollow-core and pre-cast structure to an extent that cannot be compared with any building project of this scale in Australia.

M-City’s residential precinct has seen the construction of four residential buildings ranging from 03 to 12 levels and comprising a total of some 665 apartments in a range of configurations.
The apartment towers feature a range of facilities, including rooftop gardens with tennis courts and open-air games areas, a swimming pool and spa, a fitness centre and BBQs with outdoor seating.
The building will also feature a 4.5-star international hotel that will be operated by Park Royal.
A commercial and retail precinct will include an eight-level commercial office tower providing around 14,000 square metres of commercial space above a two-level retail podium.
The 30,450 square metre retail centre comprises 78 stores including Woolworths, K-Mart, Village cinema complex, a medical centre and a childcare centre with a two-level carpark providing 2000 carspaces.
“We are delighted to complete one of the most significant new developments in Victoria,” Multiplex Victoria Regional Managing Director Graham Cottam said.
“M-City is a vibrant miniature city in itself delivering premium office, residential, retail and hotel accommodation. It will quickly become a new lifestyle destination in Clayton.”
