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.
