A new multi-level carpark in the heart of Croydon

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council has received funding from the Australian Government for a new multi-level carpark for the Croydon community. The multi-deck carpark is currently being built on Council owned land in Devon Street which is centrally located behind Croydon Main street and adjacent to the Croydon Train station and bus depot. The facility will provide much needed additional commuter carparking and improved pedestrian access and amenity to the area. The carpark will also include a 1400sqm commercial tenancy.

The multi-level carpark project aims to deliver the following benefits to the community:

  • 400 additional parking bays
  • Dedicated accessible car parking with DDA compliant access
  • Safe pedestrian access to and from local transport hubs including Croydon Station and Bus Depot
  • Safe pedestrian access to and from Main Street, Town Square, and Croydon Community Precinct
  • Environmentally Sustainable Design initiatives (such as solar power, rainwater collection)
  • Car charging points for electric vehicles
  • Clear wayfinding signage
  • Deterrents to minimise anti-social behaviour in and around the building; and
  • Future proofing - the design means that in years to come the facility can provide alternate uses if required (i.e. office space or retail)

Kane Constructions were awarded the project contract in September 2020 with the project anticipated to be completed by late 2021.

Works completed to date:

The focus of the first part of the works has been around Pierson Drive with a major upgrade to stormwater mains and the construction of a new roadway with dedicated waste bin storage for Main St traders. Works commenced in October 2020 and were completed ahead of schedule in mid-December 2020. The road has now been reopened, with access provided to the Pierson Drive traders and authorised vehicles. The road will be reopened to the public when it is safe to do so and when the carpark is completed.

2021 kicked off with continued excavation of the site in preparation of the works to the main car park structure. This included the arrival of the tower crane last week, which has now been erected. Hear from Kane’s Project Manager Charlie Chisholm in the video below.


Upcoming works:

  • The tower crane is in full capacity with the ground floor slab constructed. The team are working on in ground services and the first floor structure will start to be erected over the next month.

  • Watch out for some fantastic new temporary public art by Tricia van Der-Kuyp (aka Vandal Hype) that will appear on the hoardings around the construction site from late March. Tricia’s work featured on one of Melbourne’s Art Trams and can also be seen on one of the signal boxes that form the Anthropocene Art Trail in the Ringwood arts precinct. Tricia is from the eastern region and is currrently researching native plants and birds from the area to be featured on the hoarding that runs along the building site on Devon Street. Her boldly patterned signature style will be printed on a high-quality banner, adding to the growing number of public art works that are being supported by Council in Croydon. We will provide further updates as they become available.
  • Artist impressions of the final carpark design will be included on the hoarding in early March for visibility by the community. You can view the renders on this project page.

    Did you know that Multi-level Carpark facilities can be used for much more than just commuter carparking?

    In recent years there has been a growing movement amongst communities to utilise multi-level carparks during off-peak period for a broad range of initiatives. For example:


    • Day or Night Markets
    • Art exhibitions
    • Music events
    • Movie screenings
    • Fitness sessions
    • Sports training events


    These types of activities are a great way to activate spaces that we dont always consider, further enhancing the local area and bringing the community together.

    Consultation coming soon:

    In the coming weeks Council will be consulting with people who live, work, study or play in the Croydon community, seeking your input on these type of initiatives and much more. We want to know what type of activities or initiatives you think are needed in the very heart of Croydon beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, to help our communities re-connect with one another and to support our local businesses.

    The details of this consultation will be provided on this project page soon. To stay up to date on the Croydon Multi-level Carpark construction and all upcoming consultation opportunities, register your details below. You will receive an email notification from us each time this project page is updated. Registration is easy and you can opt out at any time.
