Massive mixed use regeneration proposed for prime waterfront land half way between the city and the airport
Almost exactly half-way between the airport and the CBD – less than 10km to each.
Largely flat, or gently sloping, bounded on its southern edge by water, with several kilometres of water frontage (admittedly the water is to the south, but still, any views over water are now regarded as good from a real estate perspective).
An important part of the city’s historic fabric, with part of the site the location for what was once the city’s busiest port and working waterfront. 
Well served by rapid (non-road based) transit.
Also well connected by road, sitting right next to the city’s motorway network, including one of the city’s major water crossings.
Over 100 hectares of relatively low density employment (industrial, service and distribution) that does not really need to be next to the water, or utilises the rapid transit.

Can you guess where it is yet?
