Highett's most substantial residential growth began in the 1950s. Industry was attracted to the area, including a large CSIRO research facility. The suburb is undergoing substantial change and rejuvenation with a high number of residential properties being renovated or redeveloped due to the suburb's proximity to Melbourne City and Port Phillip Bay, which has attracted a large number of younger families and professionals. In 2011 construction of a substantial new shopping centre and apartment complex began on Highett road, using land once owned by the CSIRO.
