There are still no clear answers on the future of a major project at the Ballarat West Employment Zone.
Mildura-based beer company Broo is reportedly selling off other assets, in Mildura and Sorrento, but is retaining its 15-hectare block at BWEZ.
The City of Ballarat has consistently said 85 per cent of the stage 1 and 1B has been sold - about 73 hectares in total.
Broo did not respond to questions regarding its plans for the site - when it was bought in 2017 for , there were plans for a 10,000-seat music venue and zipline ride, as well as a large brewing facility, which would employ 100 people.

Companies which purchase land from the state government must commit to five-year development timeframes and job delivery as conditions - this means Broo has until 2022 to complete construction and employ 100 workers.
There appears to be at least six businesses operating or under construction at the site right now.
The City of Ballarat has set aside land for an intermodal freight hub, attached to the existing rail line, and potentially a waste-to-energy plant.
The state government's Development Victoria's property development group head Neil Anderson said the entire BWEZ project has delivered 449 jobs in Ballarat so far.
"Broo purchased their site in 2017 and we look forward to seeing the future development of the site, which is earmarked to deliver around 100 jobs within the BWEZ precinct," he said in a statement.
"BWEZ is a 20-year project that is ahead of schedule in terms of sales and construction."
The City of Ballarat confirmed it "had been in recent contact with Broo", and referred questions to Development Victoria.
Broo has been repeatedly contacted for comment.
