Construction Begins At The Base

A ground-breaking ceremony was held on November 16, 2021, and attended by Hume City Council’s newly elected Mayor, Councillor Carly Moore, local elder Uncle Ringo Terrick, and members of the Development and Project teams for The Base at Craigieburn. Headed up by Nick Lewis, Regional Manager at APD Projects and partnering with leasing agents Leedwell and KMPC, it’s the largest project of its kind in the area, with the intention to become a hub for entertainment and enterprise within the wider Hume region.

A smoking ceremony and welcome to country

A smoking ceremony and welcome to country were performed by local Wurundjeri elder Uncle Ringo Terrick before APD Projects’ Director, Brad Paddon formally declared the project underway. “We’re very proud to be able to finally bring this project to life with a great team and support from the council, the local community, and the first people of this nation,” said Mr. Paddon.

Hume City Council Mayor, Councillor Carly Moore said job creation opportunities such as The Base, were central to the City’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. “With more than 3000 people unemployed in the Craigieburn community alone, many people are feeling the impacts of the pandemic,” Cr Moore said.

“Developments such as The Base will ensure our community has more access to employment opportunities close to home as we being to reopen.”

Councillor Moore added that Hume City offered the best logistics infrastructure in Melbourne, including easy access to Melbourne Airport. “Investing in Hume City is not only great for our community, but it will no doubt benefit the businesses that choose to call The Base home,” Cr Moore said.

Stage One civil works are expected to be completed by Q4 2022, with all civil construction due to be completed by Q1 2024. This comes at an approximate cost of $20 million, adding an immediate boost to the local economy.

Heading up the leasing team at The Base, Keith Murray from KMPC and Chris Parry and the team at Leedwell have already signed up a number of high-profile tenants with strong interest expressed by new businesses and international brands alike, keen to reach a growing population of 250,000 residents of Hume. “This is the most significant development in Hume so far this century. It’s a landmark that’ll bring the people of Craigieburn together”, said Mr. Murray.

Despite recent lockdowns, The Base is now on track to launch in late 2022 with anchor tenants including a service station, Carl’s Junior, KFC, and Kool Kids Childcare centre.

Leasing enquiries

They’ll be joined by over 150 retail and commercial businesses, an entertainment precinct, dining, professional services, health & wellbeing, and more. The Base will become a focal point of the area, a centre for the growing community, attracting residents in the surrounds to work, play, rest, shop, and rejuvenate.

“This project will have a tremendously positive impact on the surrounding community,” explain APD Projects Director, Brad Paddon. “Here you’ll have a village where everything you need from medical services to auto repair sits side-by-side with retail and entertainment.”
