Melbourne Federation Square (also colloquially contracted to Fed Square) is a civic centre and cultural precinct opened in 2002 in the city of Melbourne

Slide 3:

Slide 13:

In addition, the project included cultural and commercial buildings, on a 3.8ha block to be built above the Jolimont rail yards.

Slide 15:

The rationalization of the Jolimont rail yards, the demolition of the universally despised Gas and Fuel Towers, and the celebration of Australia's Centenary of Federation, provided the impetus for the completion of this important project.
