Junction Place, Wodonga
Project area: 10 hectares
Development timeframe: 15 to 20 years
Wodonga population: predicted to increase by 40% over 20 years
The Junction Place project is an exciting urban renewal initiative bringing new life to the former historic railway station and rail yards in central Wodonga. The project will double the size of Wodonga’s central business district and bring new life to the city centre.
Junction Place is regional Australia’s largest urban renewal project. Places Victoria is developing Junction Place with a number of key stakeholders including the City of Wodonga and Regional Development Victoria.
Although in the early stages of its development, Junction Place is home to a number of food and beverage operators as well as Junction Square, a significant new meeting place for Wodonga.
A dedicated Places Victoria team based in Wodonga is working to drive investment and create opportunities for the private sector by managing the release of land at Junction Place for development.
Revitalisation of Wodonga moves ahead
Places Victoria has given Central Place the green light to submit its proposed master plan for the revitalisation of the heart of Wodonga to Council as part of the planning process.
The master plan for the land between High and Smyth Streets at Junction Place includes a new market hall, residential homes, offices, retail, public parks, off-street parking and an entertainment precinct, including a cinema and hotel. It will be developed by a Wodonga-based developer Central Place Pty Ltd and will be known as Station 73.
