GEON PROPERTY LODGES DA FOR CONNECTED WAREHOUSE DEVELOPMENT
Responding to the demand for more commercial space for warehousing, Brisbane-based developer Geon Property has lodged a development application for an innovative warehousing facility in Seventeen Mile Rocks.
The 8,081m2 site at 28 Jennifer Street is expected to lure major e-commerce retailers to the western Brisbane suburb with customisable spaces and connections to major arterials as key drawcards.
Geon Property Development Manager Glen Wright said strong growth in e-commerce was driving demand for more warehouse space connected to metropolitan areas.
“With so many of these online retailers offering same-day or next-day delivery, the need for commercial space which is close to urban areas is clear,” Mr Wright said.
“28 Jennifer Street is only 20 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, 45 minutes from the Gold Coast and 25 minutes from Australia Trade Coast and Brisbane Airport, which is ideal for those looking to create more efficient distribution across the city.
“Uniquely, tenants are also being invited to work with us at this design stage, to ensure their new space is configured to meet their specific needs.
“The space offers the flexibility of either welcoming one major tenant, or two tenants sharing the space.”
According to the most recent NAB Online Retail Sales Index, online retail grew by 17.7 per cent in the year to June 2018, and online retail from SMEs grew 23.2 per cent in the same period.
“Many commentators have been speculating on Amazon’s effect on the market for warehouse space in Australia, but what this commentary is missing is the huge growth in home-grown business in the e-commerce space.
“The Australian marketplace has launched many ecommerce household names like BlackMilk Clothing, The Iconic, Edible Blooms, even Lorna Jane and many, many more.
“We think Brisbane is a fantastic incubator for entrepreneurial businesses like these, but recognise that many need adaptable spaces in close proximity to urban areas, to meet the needs of their growing customer bases.”
The development will incorporate a total of 2,561m2 of warehouse space, up to 1,556m2 of office space and 606m2 or more of hardstand.
“It’s an adaptable space, which is well connected to major arterials, public transport and active transport infrastructure, so it could really suit any number of uses,” Mr Wright said.
“Warehousing and office space needs to meet the demands of 21st century workforces to encourage employees to fringe areas, so we have incorporated a range of CBD-standard facilities as part of the design.
End-of-trip facilities and bike racks; demonstrate some of the employee-focused elements of this outstanding design and of course the office space offers views across Rocks Riverside Park to the city.
“While this site provides a great opportunity for those in Brisbane’s western suburbs to work locally, it also features exceptional connectivity to other areas, with a bus stop just 200m away and more than 80 off-street carparks for commuters.”
“We look forward to working with tenants to configure the space to suit their business.”
Expressions of interest are now open through CBRE and LJ Hooker Commercial.▲▼

Geon Property lodges development application to kick start the Albion train station precinct’s $750 million re-visioning
Geon Property has lodged a development application for Stage One of the Albion Train Station Precinct Redevelopment and unveiled the name of the $750 million project – Albion Exchange.
The newly launched development is a ten-stage project with community consultation on the future masterplan to commence shortly.
Geon Property senior development manager Tim Rossberg said, “Albion Exchange is set to become Brisbane’s latest mixed-use project and will create a vibrant community heart for the inner-northern suburbs.”
“Albion Exchange is a unique inner-city development which will further the suburb’s modernisation by creating an energised and connected destination.”
Designed by Hames Sharley, Stage One of Albion Exchange will feature a new food and beverage destination, state of the art health and wellbeing offerings, boutique convenience retail and two new multi-level residential buildings.
Together with a $28.7 million upgrade of transport facilities and access to the Albion Train Station, the proposal lodged with the Brisbane City Council also includes 4,900sqm of new green open space and a public plaza connecting the east and west of Albion Road..
Mr Rossberg said feedback sessions on Stage One of the project were well attended, with the community showing a high level of interest in the level of amenity and public space offered by Albion Exchange.
“The size and quality of public amenity in our Stage One proposal will transform the inner-city transit node into a green public sanctuary, with a strong emphasis on community interaction and exchange, legibility and accessibility. Over sixty five per cent of the Stage One site area will be dedicated to public space for the community.
“Albion Exchange will change the face of Albion for the better. It will bring new life to land which is currently underutilised.
“Albion is a suburb on the rise and Albion Exchange is at its heart. Albion is one of the fastest growing areas in Brisbane and by 2036 the suburb’s population is estimated to grow by more than 3,857 residents.
“Albion Exchange will give Albion back its heart and soul. The total redevelopment precinct covers approximately four hectares stretching as a spine from the Albion Overpass through to the former Albion Fire Station (Merehaye Street).
Stage One – Albion Exchange – sits immediately south and above the existing Albion Train Station, making it a genuine transit oriented development.
Mr Rossberg said, “The Geon Property development team has been shaping the vision for the Albion Exchange precinct for two years, working in collaboration with Queensland Rail and the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
Stage One of the project 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
Construction will start in early 2020, subject to development approval.▲▼
