A prominent information and communication technology (ICT) company from America's well-known Silicon Valley area is set to establish a base in Melbourne, according to a March 14 statement from the Premier of Victoria.
Along with the removal of level crossings near Murrumbeena and Carnegie real estate, it's clear that certain Melbourne suburbs are set for technological growth as well as faster transport options.
The ICT company in question is Hightail and it has singled out Melbourne as the city to host its new Asia Pacific Headquarters.
"Melbourne's world-leading talent eco system is supported by the most educated workforce in the Asia Pacific region. With nine universities and a strong network of research facilities, Melbourne is recognised internationally as the innovation capital of Australia," announced Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips.
The company is "the only world class file-sharing service with a presence in Australia", noted Hightail General Manager Asia Pacific Kevin Mackin.
Melbourne was selected due to its "strong talent pool of IT executives", stated Mr Mackin.
The introduction of the Melbourne headquarters "will create up to 20 new jobs in the tech sector for Melbourne", according to Mr Rich-Phillips.
With growing job opportunities opening up nearby and easier commuting to the CBD, it's no wonder families choose to buy Carnegie, Malvern East and Murrumbeena real estate.
