    ALBION TOD SITE AGREEMENT SIGNED

    Albion’s train station precinct is about to undergo a $750m facelift.

    Geon Property have signed an agreement with Transport and Main Roads to carry out the Albion Transit Oriented Development (TOD).

    “The fifteen year project will convert the current clutter of disjointed park’n’ride facilities, old rail access bridges, commercial and residential buildings and vacant land into an exciting community asset,” said Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey.

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

    The Albion Train Station Precinct Redevelopment includes a $28.7m upgrade to transport facilities and access to the Albion train station, intended to revitalise the suburb of Albion and surrounding community.

    Geon Property will now start a detailed design, development application and approval process over the next 12 to 18 months.  This will include public engagement to ensure the local community is given the opportunity to provide feedback. Construction is expected to start in 2020.  More information will be available as development applications and approvals proceed.

    Geon Property will:

    • design and construct a mixed-use TOD that integrates with Albion Train Station and the wider local area
    • work with the state to design improved Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) compliant access to Albion Train Station and construct this at no cost to the state
    • work with the state to optimise the design and location of commuter car parking (to ensure no net loss of park’n’ride numbers) and undertake construction of the necessary works at no cost to the state
    • integrate with a section of North Brisbane Bikeway through the precinct.

    Geon Property Managing Director Ben Griffin said the redevelopment offered a unique opportunity to revitalise Albion.  “Redeveloping Albion Train Station Precinct allows us to deliver a truly world-class transit oriented development,” Mr Griffin said.  “This project will be so much more than just a property development – our vision is to create a precinct that is a genuine destination.  This project will be defined by a seamless integration of high-quality apartment living; retail, food and beverage outlets with genuine character; modern commercial offerings; and vibrant public open spaces.  And of course, it will offer peerless 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.  We want to create a genuine community hub for the people of Albion, one that will reconnect the community in both a physical and a social sense.  It is no exaggeration to say that there is no other urban renewal opportunity quite like Albion in South East Queensland right now.”

    Key features of Geon Property’s preliminary design include:

    • A modernised Albion train station entrance including new ticketing facilities and new lifts to platforms
    • A Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) compliant public station access plaza
    • Improved undercover park’n’ride facilities
    • Extensive retail, commercial, food and beverage, and public open spaces
    • A broad range of apartment options tailored for different sections of the market
    • Seamless integration between every aspect of the precinct and a variety of transport options

    GEON PROPERTY UNVEILS GAME-CHANGING OLYMPIAN-STANDARD HEALTH HUB

    NORTH Queensland is primed to benefit from an Australian-first fitness and lifestyle precinct with Geon Property confirming plans to deliver a multimillion dollar project next to the heart of Townsville.   Pulsing with the energy of the city’s burgeoning fitness scene, The CO:UP will offer an incomparable mix of active performance and recovery facilities to suit everyone from our smallest swimmers to Olympic hopefuls like Lucy Stirling.

    “The CO:UP will be a place for people to socialise, network, exercise, refuel and relax in one of city’s most beautifully-appointed settings,” said Geon Property development manager Glen Wright.  “This multifaceted precinct has already attracted a world-class climbing gym, the country’s largest swim school operator and is working to secure a dedicated mini golf centre.  In tandem with these high quality facilities, The CO:UP will feature holistic practices like yoga and pilates, spaces for allied health professionals and food & beverage opportunities committed to supporting health and wellbeing.”

    Urban Climb, which currently operates some the country’s largest bouldering venues, has signed up as the anchor tenant.   “We are thrilled to open our new gym in this dedicated health precinct surrounded by like-minded businesses,” explained Urban Climb co-owner Alex Cox-Taylor.  “Urban Climb is incredibly passionate about community and connectivity and The CO:UP combines both.  It’s the perfect spot to meet up, work out, grab a juice and get connected.”

    The latest offering for Townsville has been endorsed by Olympic sports climbing hopeful Lucy Stirling who will be taking full advantage of its elite and specialist facilities.  “This new gym at The CO:UP is particularly unique in that it will feature the state’s first speed climbing wall,” said Ms Stirling.   “I train full-time, six days a week but currently there is no speed climbing wall in Queensland.  For me to qualify for the Olympics next year it is essential that I practice on one, so for me personally, it’s a game-changer.”

    Ms Stirling began climbing 11 years ago and is now in training to qualify for Tokyo 2020 where the sport itself will make its Olympic debut.  “Climbing is an excellent way to flex muscle and mind and I believe this is great news not just for the sport but for the region,” Ms Stirling continued.

    The CO:UP is one of several important projects Geon Property has developed for Townsville in recent years.  Mr Wright said the visionary project is a testament to Geon’s commitment to the city and ability to reimagine environments for better living.  Whether you’re trying out a new skill, motivated to feel your personal best or are an inspiring Olympic athlete, our vision is to create a health hub for everyone at every level.

    The CO:UP’s premiere space for existing and future business is now available for lease. For more information contact Geon Property leasing manager David Sheppard on 0406 108 587 or visit www.theco-up.com.au .

    GRIFFIN BECOMES GEON

    Our brand represents our values, and our new name – Geon Property – embodies all that we stand for. We believe it’s the right time to transition to a brand name that more accurately reflects the company and build on the foundation of our growing team of talented professionals.

    GRIFFIN BECOMES GEON

    Queensland-based property company Griffin Group has changed its name to Geon Property in a bid to move away from its family-name to a brand that reflects its contemporary business. Managing director Ben Griffin said while a company rebrand often signalled future intent, the move to Geon Property reflected an evolution of the family company into an institutional business. “Making the change to Geon Property is actually about our brand name and look to catching up to where we have been as a company for quite a while,” he said.

    “We took the business so far as Griffin Group and have secured a couple of substantial projects ahead of ASX-listed entities.

    “This success confirmed to us that we were on track for growth and greater market prominence and as such we felt we needed a brand that was more in sync with the company we had become.”

    TOWNSVILLE’S NEW CULTURAL HEART

    A state-of-the-art concert hall could transform Townsville’s CBD, putting renewed emphasis on cultural activity with a precinct that caters to all demographics.

    The concept is among 14 development recommendations in Pure Projects’ ‘Transformation of Townsville’ document. Based on a review of Expression of Interest campaign opened by the council, the company found there were three options for the concert-hall location – one being at The Hive, Geon Property’s $450million redevelopment of the Queens Hotel area in the CBD; and the site Pure Projects has put forward as its preferred option.

    The masterplan, which was adopted by Townsville City Council this week, outlined a need for “cultural activation” and found a concert hall could help position the city as a new cultural hub. Pure Projects chairman Don Morris AO said similar projects had had positive returns in other cities.
