The Malt District

Discover The District

A Cultural Icon

A landmark to generations of Melburnians, the malting silos and Nylex Clock cut a distinct silhouette on the city's skyline. Breathing new life into this iconic site, The Malt District will combine heritage architecture with the very latest in urban design and innovation, to become a destination, and hive of activity from morning to night.
Respectfully preserving the site’s historic buildings, The Malt District will seamlessly combine contemporary apartments alongside boutique retail, hospitality and creative office spaces.

Lifestyle Central


Dining out, after-work drinks or retail therapy, The Malt District is a destination catering for your every need and want. A generous public realm with pedestrian walkways leads you along a curated collection of retail and hospitality options. Fashion, wellness, artisan stores, cafes and eateries, even a microbrewery are just part of the cosmopolitan mix. And the soon-to-be restored Nylex Clock will let you know if you're late for celebrations on the rooftop bar and restaurant.

What's happening to the Nylex sign?

Our plan for a Melbourne icon.


As a Melbourne born and bred company, we are incredibly passionate about the Nylex clock and recognise its importance to the broader Melbourne community, which is why we won’t just preserve the clock for future generations, but also restore it to its former glory, so it can once again tell the time.

On February 18, 2020 we officially turned the Nylex sign back on for 24 hours as our team assessed which parts of the sign remained functional, while also giving Melbourne a taste of what’s to come following the restoration.

Soon the Nylex sign will be transported off-site for restoration works while construction on the broader Malt District precinct is underway. Once construction on this area is complete, approximately a 2-year task, the sign will return to the same place above the silos, although some 15m higher so it remains visible across Cremorne and Richmond.
