Research & Industry

We have reserved nearly 55 hectares of land lying between the existing CSIRO laboratories and our first marina as a site for the establishment of a new collaborative style precinct with a distinct difference. Subject to agreement, we see a major University, the CSIRO and government co-operating with us to create a totally integrated research and development facility as the centrepiece of a very large “state of the art” technology focused “Silicon Valley” style business park.

We propose that hundreds of employees and students could live in specially designed accommodation carefully planned and integrated with the adjoining marina with its wharf side cafes, convenience shopping areas and community facilities.

This precinct could eventually be served by its own light rail station directly connecting the precinct to the Geelong CBD and other Nelson Cove precincts.
