Defunct Melbourne Convention Centre to be Sold as Development Site

Selling Melbourne to the WorldTHE Victorian Government will offload a prominent asset on the banks of the Yarra River, at the junction the CBD meets Southbank and Docklands.

The Department of Treasury and Finance is managing the campaign to sell the former Melbourne Convention Centre building at the south-west corner of Flinders and Spencer streets and abutting the prominent semi-circle Crowne Promenade Hotel.

The low rise building, once used as Melbourne’s makeshift Crown Casino is expected to be demolished.
