Current transit oriented developments

Coorparoo Junction

The Department of Transport and Main Roads undertook an open market process to identify a developer to purchase the land at Coorparoo Junction and deliver a TOD, along with public transport infrastructure on the site. Coorparoo Square was completed in early 2018 and comprises 366 units in three towers with cinemas and retail below.

Buranda TOD

The Buranda TOD is a private sector development adjacent to the Buranda Busway and rail station which will integrate the development with the existing public transport infrastructure. Stage 1 is complete with Stage 2 and 3 to follow. The development is a mix of residential and student accommodation with retail and commercial offices.

Cleveland TOD

The Cleveland TOD is a mixed use development located at the Cleveland rail station. The proposed development will consist of residential and short term tourist accommodation, and a retail outlet servicing commuters and residents. 

Ferny Grove Station Precinct TOD

As part of the Keperra to Ferny Grove rail upgrade project, a community consultation exercise was completed to identify a vision for the station precinct. In line with this vision, the Ferny Grove Station precinct will be developed into a landmark suburban Transit Oriented Development that integrates the Ferny Grove Train Station with a range of uses including residential, retail and office uses.

The department sought the involvement of the private sector in the planning, design and delivery of a mixed use TOD outcome at the Ferny Grove Train Station. This presented an opportunity for organisations with experience in the development of medium to large-scale mixed use developments and construction of transport infrastructure to:

  • design and develop a mixed use development on the Site that supports the public transport facilities
  • work with the department to jointly optimise the design of the commuter car parking
  • construct/reinstate the necessary commuter car parks to ensure no net loss of park 'n' ride capacity.

Site details

The site includes approximately 3.5 hectares directly adjacent to the Ferny Grove Train Station and the local authority is Brisbane City Council.

Procurement process

A competitive procurement process is now complete with a project agreement being executed with a proponent to deliver the project. This process included:

  • invitation for Expressions of Interest (completed)
  • invitation to Offer (completed)
  • best and Final Offer (completed)
  • negotiation of contract and project agreement executed (completed).

The proponent will be required to reinstate any transport infrastructure affected by the development as part of the project. This includes but is not limited to commuter car spaces, bus stops and bike lockers.

The proponent will be responsible for gaining all necessary approvals required for the development and has lodged the Development Application with Brisbane City Council for assessment. The department has committed $9 million to provide approximately an additional 250 commuter car spaces as part of the Development. Additional federal funding has recently been announced for this project—this page will be updated shortly with further details. 

More information on the project is available on the developer’s website.

Albion Train Station Precinct Redevelopment Opportunity

The department owns a number of properties in Albion which were acquired for the Northern Transport Corridor in the 1970s. These properties are no longer required and TMR undertook an open market process to identify a developer to deliver station access improvements and transit oriented development on the sites. The tender process is now complete and a development agreement has been executed by TMR, Queensland Rail and the successful developer – Albion TOD Pty Ltd represented by Geon Property.  

The developer will:

  • design and construct a mixed-use transit oriented development integrated with Albion Train Station and the wider area
  • work with the state to design improved Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) compliant access to Albion Train Station and construct 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) and undertake construction of the necessary works at no cost to the state
  • integrate with a section of North Brisbane Bikeway through the precinct.

The developer will be responsible for obtaining all necessary approvals for the development, including approvals from Brisbane City Council as the planning authority for the site.  

Work to design and prepare development applications for the Albion Train Station Precinct Redevelopment project is underway, with the first applications now submitted for assessment.
