This project resulted from the decision of Essendon Football Club to relocate from their traditional home at Windy Hill, to Tullamarine. The project involved the development of a 10 hectare greenfield site, with the construction of two full-sized AFL ovals and elite training facilities for the club. The training facility also included all player treatment areas and a 4-lane 25-metre pool.

All administrative and football department functions were also relocated to this new state-of-the-art facility.
