The Mill, Albion

FKP Commercial Developments Pty Ltd has submitted a development application to create a mixed-use integrated commercial, residential, community and retail development, with excellent access to the Albion railway station.

This project will facilitate the development of ‘The Mill, Albion’, on the obsolete Albion Flour Mill site and adjoining sites, at Hudson Road and Albion Road, Albion. This major redevelopment site is adjacent to the existing Albion Village centre and the Albion railway station, and represents an urban renewal opportunity with significant transit oriented outcomes. The proposal will provide benefits to not just the local area, but to the city as a whole.

The proposal incorporates a range of integrated uses including high density residential, commercial and retail uses, designed in an integrated scheme around a network of public spaces, including streets, plazas and public transport. The development is directly linked to Albion railway station and has a significant interaction with the existing Albion Village centre and areas west of the rail corridor.

Retention and reuse of the heritage Albion Flour Mill building as a coherent part of the overall redevelopment is a principal objective to help preserve the cultural significance of the area and create a landmark feature for the site. The heritage Mill building and the grain silos have been retained and are effectively integrated with the contemporary design of the remainder of the proposal. Sight lines from within the site and throughout adjoining areas have been retained to the heritage Mill building and the silos.

Program
Mix of 1 bed studio apartments, 2 bed apartments, and 3 bed penthouse apartments, heritage list building, super market tenancy, boutique retail, commercial tenancy, covered and open plaza spaces, underground car parking.
