Stage One construction is progressing well, with civil engineering and in-ground services almost complete. Most exciting is the progression of the built form, with the structure beginning to emerge, and pre-cast panel installation, facade framing, and roofing well underway.

Our first tenants – Carl’s Junior, KFC, and the fuel station – are all scheduled to commence their internal works soon. We look forward to welcoming them to The Base in the next few months.

Once complete, The Base Craigieburn will be home to nearly 150 retail and commercial businesses, and regarded as the region’s most popular retail, entertainment, dining, wellbeing, and professional services hub. The precinct will cater to the Northern Growth Corridor’s booming population, forecast to see an additional 350,000 residents by 2036.

What’s driving population growth in Craigieburn?

Despite the pandemic halting migration for close to two years, the population of Craigieburn, as well as that of surrounding suburbs within the Northern Growth Corridor, continues to expand. The corridor, covering a region of 20-50km from central Melbourne, and once home primarily to farming families, is now an in-demand region with a high representation of young families drawn to its relative affordability, family-friendly amenities, and easy commute to the CBD.

An additional 350,000 people are forecast to be living in the primary catchment region by 2036. Employment opportunities are another notable factor for the draw of new residents, with upwards of 13,000 workers currently making up the region’s manufacturing sector and another 6500 in construction, wholesaling, transport and warehousing activities*.

The industrialisation of the northern region will continue to grow year on year; 26% of Melbourne’s entire supply of industrial precincts are found in the Corridor already. The recent announcement of the Amazon sorting centre confirmed for Craigieburn will bring another 200 permanent workers, and 700 more during the construction phase of the purpose-built facility.

Recognising the continued population growth, the Hume City Council has recently released its 2022/2023 Draft Budget, set to deliver record investment into infrastructure projects, to improve accessibility in the municipality. The construction of new and upgraded roads is planned across Hume City, as well as $3.78 million set aside for pedestrian foot routes. The works will support future growth, and benefit residents and business operators alike with reduced traffic congestion and improved public transport serviceability.
