Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said that an agreement had been signed with Geon Property, a Brisbane property developer, to redevelop the Albion precinct.

During the election campaign, the government made a commitment to invest in a multimillion-dollar accessibility upgrade at Albion train station. They will now work with the developer to ensure that it integrates with their plans for the precinct.

Mr Bailey said that the fifteen-year project is set to integrate Albion train station with neighbouring commercial and residential buildings as well as nearby vacant lots, transforming it to become an exciting community asset.

“By unlocking the potential of the 3.5-hectare site through a partnership with the private sector, we will deliver enhanced public transport infrastructure for the local community.”, he added.

Ben Griffin, managing director of Geon Property, is positive that the upcoming transit-oriented development will give Albion a boost as the precinct will serve as a community hub that offers new residential accommodation, office spaces, commercial facilities for shopping and dining, upgraded transport facilities, and public access to the Albion train station.

“It will offer access to Brisbane’s transport networks, integrating with one of South East Queensland’s busiest train lines, connecting to the bikeway network and providing accessible parking options.”, he added.

The redevelopment would complement Queensland Rail’s planned  $17 million accessibility upgrade of Albion train station which is expected to start in late 2019. The accessibility upgrade includes new platform access with lifts, raised platform sections for improved access, and additional accessibility features like hearing aid loop, signage, and tactile flooring surfaces.

Geon Property is currently working on the design options which will be open for public feedback and community engagement.  The detailed design process, development application, and approval process will start over the next 12 to 18 months.

According to Mr Bailey, construction is expected to start in 2019 – 2020. More details on the redevelopment will be available as soon as development application submittals and approvals have been completed.
