Cities develop innovation districts and mixed-use employment centres to grow knowledge industries and encourage sustainable urban form. However, this strategy may contribute to socio-economic inequality and uneven development. It also often relies on conversion of industrial zones, which may counter unequal urban development by supporting quality jobs and a diverse economic mix. This research aims to demonstrate the value of industrial land by comparing their employment and equity roles to other planned employment areas in Melbourne, Australia. We find that industrial zones support an overlooked source of employment and provide a more diverse employment and income base than other areas.
