Brisbane City Council (BCC) has just approved stage one of the Albion Exchange development which is a ten stage $750m Transit Orientated Development (TOB) set to span across 4 hectares in Albion.

The aim of the TOD is to improve accessibility to the Albion station and provide commercial, retail, residential and community spaces to locals. It also aims to improve the area for pedestrians and cyclists by widening stairs and paths and improving wheelchair and pram accessibility.

$28.7m of the $750m will go towards upgrades to transport facilities and public access to the Albion train station.

Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), and Queensland Rail (QR) are in partnership with Geon Property who will take the lead on this project. The Senior Development Manager for Geon is Tim Rossberg.

RPS Group has submitted development approval to Geon for Stage 1. The approved plans outline the construction of a 20-storey tower and a 19-storey tower, comprising a total of 253 units. Stage one architectural plans were prepared by Hames Sharley and landscape concept package by Dunn Moran.

Stage 1 will also 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

Consultants used during the preliminary phases of the project are as follows:

  • RPS – Town Planner and Surveyor
