Unison Projects Develops Former Garden Centre Site into Resort-Style Inspired Community

Albany Creek is set to host Preston Point, one of the biggest townhouse developments in and around Brisbane. The site, located at the former Hawkins Garden Centre site at 623 Albany Creek Road, will be developed into a 74-townhouse, resort-styled private community.

Coined as a “truly green community” settling on the banks of Albany Creek, Preston Point will feature communal vegetable gardens, fire pits, a large lawn area that’s perfect for community football games, alongside leisure amenities such as a 16-metre swimming pool for residents that is aesthetically wrapped around a deck, BBQ areas, and a bocce court.

Honoring the Area’s Historical Roots

Nestled within the 3.2-hectare site are Albany Creek’s famous 100-year-old fig trees. These iconic figures will be lovingly retained and will populate the extensively designed private green open space in the upcoming community.
During the project’s conceptualization, developer Unison Projects hosted a “naming competition” among the students of Albany Creek State High School. All the students were invited to suggest a name for the budding community and cite their inspiration behind the name.

Winning entries came from students Madalyn Martin, Stephanie McBean, and Kirra Young. Their entry “Preston Point” was inspired by John Preston, the man who originally bought the land in 1865. Each of the girls won $100 from Unison Projects and were also presented certificates by Albany Creek’s Mayor Mike Charlton.

Breaking New Ground in Green, Urban Living

Preston Point boasts of a rare taste of urban living and green natural space, located conveniently 12km away from Brisbane’s CBD and within easy reach of local amenities and infrastructure. Homes are refreshingly ensconced within natural surrounds.

Buyers can choose from 18 varieties of terrace designs, numerous stunning facades and a variety of two-, three- and four-bedroom designs. All units also feature 2.5 bathrooms and a 2-car garage. A few units will also feature a ground floor master bedroom with ensuite bath.

The $37 million estate is currently in the construction stage, after a year of civil works in the site. As a major infrastructure development in the area, Preston Point is certainly going to change the landscape of community living in the Albany Creek area.
