 Builder Named for $128m Geelong Arts Project

Property giants Lendlease have been named as the builders for a $128 million redevelopment project in Geelong.

The Victorian Government yesterday announced that the major property company will head up the construction of the Geelong Arts Centre’s Little Malop Street redevelopment.

The project aims to transform the existing building and provide new performance venues as well as exciting new indoor and outdoor facilities and dining options.

Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley said: “Geelong Arts Centre’s Little Malop Street transformation will bring new jobs, economic activity and opportunities to the region – during its construction phase and beyond.”

Lendlease have a history of delivering major cultural projects throughout Australia including Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall, making them the ideal candidate to oversee the Geelong project.

Member for Geelong Christine Couzens said that the redevelopment of the arts centre would have a huge impact on the local economy and put Geelong on the cultural map.

“This project is a game-changer for the Geelong Arts Centre and the cultural life of our region. More than that, it’s a boon for our economy and for local jobs,” she said.

Award-winning Victorian architects ARM, are behind the design of the project aided by the Traditional Owners, the Wadawurrung people, to ensure that the history and culture connected to the site is reflected.

Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville said: “As we recover and rebuild from the impacts of COVID-19, Geelong Arts Centre’s role will be more important than ever.”

This redevelopment will open up new experiences, new world-class facilities and new opportunities for our region.
