Upcoming transit oriented developments
Mango Hill Project
The Department of Transport and Main Roads owns 3 vacant parcels of land in Mango Hill located directly adjacent to Mango Hill rail station. A large portion of the site was acquired to facilitate the construction of the Moreton Bay Rail Link Project and for Transport Associated Development purposes.
The Transport Associated Development acquisition provides an opportunity to deliver a transit oriented development outcome that activates the station and facilitates integration between the station and surrounding land uses and realises the benefits of the newly constructed Redcliffe Peninsula Line.
Benefits of transit oriented development include:
- increased active transport and public transport patronage
- decreased car dependency
- efficient use of infrastructure and improved safety
- security and accessibility.
The department released a competitive tender for this project. The department will not be taking forward any interest received during the procurement process.
The land has since been withdrawn from the market to consider additional transport requirements, including additional commuter parking for Mango Hill Train Station.
Once transport investigations are finalised, the department will consider whether to release any surplus land to the market. The department will conduct any future procurement process, in accordance with the Government’s Land Transaction Policy.
Varsity Lakes Station Precinct
The department owns 4 parcels of vacant land totalling approximately 8.4 hectares situated adjacent to the Varsity Lakes Train Station on the Gold Coast. The land was acquired to accommodate the construction of the Robina to Varsity Lakes Rail project and for delivery of a Transit Oriented Development.
The department previously released a competitive tender process seeking interest from suitably qualified and experienced parties with demonstrated expertise to design and construct a mixed-use Transit Oriented Development on the site. A preferred proponent was selected as part of this process, however negotiations were unsuccessful. The department is now considering further options for this site.
The department is proposing to seek involvement of interested parties via an open market Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to develop the site and to reinstate permanent park 'n' ride commuter car parks.
EOIs will invite suitably qualified and experienced parties with demonstrated experience in the development of medium scale developments to:
- design and construct a development on the site, and
- in conjunction with TMR, design and construct permanent commuter park 'n' ride capacity for Corinda Train Station to be delivered at no cost to the state, with ownership of the commuter car parks to remain as the state’s.
The objectives for the development of the site are to:
- achieve innovative design solutions that deliver effective land use and transport integration while maximising the development potential of the site
- achieve development generally consistent with the local planning intent
- maintain, at a minimum, existing commuter park 'n' ride capacity for Corinda Train Station
- ensure a suitable interim park 'n' ride solution is made available for commuters during construction
- deliver the proposed development and transport infrastructure with no loss or cost to the state.
The key planning and design objectives envisaged for the site include:
- a high level of activation of Corinda Train Station and interaction with the proposed development
- a vibrant development generally in accordance with local planning intentions
- a coherent, legible, high quality, safe and accessible public realm that enhances the Corinda Train Station and associated bus functions, reinforces pedestrian connectivity and integrates with the surrounding area
- high-quality sustainable design.
