Free Rent For Docklands Retailers

Renew Australia, a not-for-profit organisation, is attempting to turn empty retail and office space at Docklands into people places.

With the support of Melbourne City Council, Places Victoria and MAB Corporation, creative types, including some retailers are being offered  the keys for a weekly participation fee of just $20. Participants understand they can be kicked out at any time but free rent is a very positive aspect of starting up or relocating a new business. Docklands has more than 8000 residents and 30,000 workers to add to the mix.
