It’s a long time in the planning but the redevelopment of Milton Rail and the new construction above and adjacent to the station may be nearer to happening.
The latest FKP Property Group application for a 31-storey building was approved by Brisbane City Council last week. We wrote 3 years ago about their ambitious plan to build a mammoth tower over the railway line. Something like this does take time but the economic meltdown hasn’t helped.
According to Westside News the original proposal for two towers of mixed residential and commercial space was altered during this latest application process to just one tower to fit the Milton Local Area Plan more closely.
The proposal includes a significant upgrade to the Station, including new retail spaces.
The building, to be imaginatively called “The Milton”, will house over 300 one and two bedroom apartments with commercial offices on the lower floors.
Meantime Kozmic Developments has also received Council approval for their 21 Manning Street tower, a 127 apartment project right behind Park Road. This will be a great example of land re-use in inner Brisbane, with relatively modern apartments to be bulldozed to make way for the project.
Exciting times for Milton!
