A public consultation on the Albion Train Station Precinct Redevelopment will be held this 15 September at the Windsor Bowls Club and locals are encouraged to have their say.

Brisbane property developers Geon Property has already lodged a development application for Stage One of the Albion Train Station Precinct Redevelopment. The property developers named the $750-million project, Albion Exchange.

The fifteen-year project will redevelop the state-owned 4 hectare property, bordered by  Mawarra St, and Albion and Hudson Roads, in ten stages. Geon Property’s Albion Train Station Precinct Redevelopment will include an upgrade to transport facilities and access to the Albion train station.

“Albion Exchange is set to become Brisbane’s latest mixed-use project and will create a vibrant community heart for the inner-northern suburbs,” Geon Property senior development manager Tim Rossberg said.

Stage One of Albion Exchange, designed by Hames Sharley, will feature two new multi-level residential buildings. There will also be a new food and beverage, health and wellbeing, retail and commercial precinct.

Along with a $28.7 million upgrade to transport facilities and access to the Albion Train Station, the proposal includes 4,900 sqm of new green open space and a public plaza connecting the east and west of Albion Road.

Stage One is the largest stage of the project and will include:

  • new ticket and office facilities and amenities
  • new lift and stair access to station platforms
  • replacement of part of the existing park’n’ride car parking with new consolidated undercover facilities
  • integration of development with the future North Brisbane Bikeway
  • plaza access across the rail corridor connecting Albion east and west

The design of the master plan is still evolving. Subject to the approval of the development application, construction is scheduled to commence in early 2020.

Public Consultations

Geon Property has been visiting locals and community groups to hold discussions about the project. They recently held consultations at Brothers Rugby Club and Windsor Park. The public engagement gives local residents and community groups a chance to ask questions, provide their feedback, and voice their concerns.

Mr Rossberg said that the feedback sessions on Stage One of the project were well attended. He said that the community showed a “high level of interest in the level of amenity and public space offered by Albion Exchange.”

As the public consultation continues, locals can still give their feedback and ideas around potential new uses for the precinct.

Some considerations Geon Property is looking into include:

  • Provision of healthcare
  • Provision of education services
  • Sports and recreation facilities
  • Greater connection to active transport networks
  • Accessibility within the precinct
  • Implementation of sub-tropical streetscapes

The Masterplan:

  • 10 stages delivered over 15 years
  • Encompassing approx. 4 hectares of land
  • Integration with the future North Brisbane Bikeway
  • Provision of social infrastructure
  • Facilities that support transport and employment nodes
  • Recreational activities that complement the transport-oriented setting
  • Use of transitional heights to protect residential neighbourhood

Geon Property is inviting residents and stakeholders to provide their feedback on the master plan on Saturday 15 September, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
