Vision: Internal views of building construction.

It’s a joint partnership with the Victorian State Government, and it’s so exciting to actually see some walls up.

So, it’s a two-level building and it is going to be such an important building for the local area.

So, in this two-storey building there’s a lot of different rooms for people to congregate in which is really exciting.

One of the main features is an outdoor garden.

Vision: Plan view of the different areas on the first floor and ground floor of the community hub.

There’s going to be a play space area, maternal child and health area, and also lots of consulting rooms.

There’s a kitchen, a canteen, and obviously the change rooms to service our sporting fields.

Samantha Byrne - Mayor, Moonee Valley City Council

This is a really exciting facility for the community.

We had a really old and dilapidated community hub, and a woeful change room for servicing our sporting fields, so to be able to incorporate them both into an amazing facility like this is really exciting.

I can’t wait until people can actually come and use this facility.

It will be so well-used and just to see everyone from across Moonee Valley and beyond, to be able to come in, enjoy some local sporting grounds and courts, to be able to sit upstairs, read a book, be really casual, it’ll just be fantastic just to see it activated.
