Waterfront Multideck Carpark

In preparation for the future development of the Geelong Convention and Exhibition Centre, to be located on the land where Car Park 2 at the Waterfront Campus is currently located, we're constructing a new multideck carpark. Not only will it provide staff and students with replacement parking, it will also feature landscaping, public realm artwork and an activated laneway.

More than a carpark

The Multideck Carpark will be positioned between Brougham St and Smythe St at the Waterfront Campus, on the site of the current Car Park 3. Deakin aims to create living architecture, with particular emphasis on sustainable construction materials, to create a visually interesting building that integrates with the existing landscape.

The Multideck Carpark will replace Car Park 2 and 3 and will provide students and staff with:

  • Parking spaces adjacent to the campus
  • EV charging facilities
  • A gym
  • A yoga studio
  • An activated laneway.

Our goal in developing the Multideck Carpark is to provide a facility that encompasses more than just parking spaces, adding value to the experience of our staff and students when attending the Waterfront Campus.

Construction timeline and impact

Project construction is scheduled to commence in November 2022, with completion expected by the end of 2023.

There are several components associated with the construction, including the handover of Car Park 2 to Development Victoria and the closure of Car Park 3.

With the reduction of parking space available at the Waterfront Campus while construction is underway, staff and students should consider alternative transport.
