Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is one step closer to finalising arrangements for the redevelopment of Yeppoon’s heritage railway precinct.

Silverstone Developments, a privately-owned company with extensive experience in developing commercial, retail and residential projects across south-east Queensland, recently signed a contract to purchase over half of the 2.4-hectare former heritage rail station site to deliver a new mixed-use urban precinct.

Silverstone will develop approximately 1.5-hectares of the 2.4-hectare site, with the remaining land transferred to Livingstone Shire Council for future community uses.

Works to revitalise the heritage station building are still underway, to be completed in mid-2020 by Landbrook Building and Construction, who were awarded the contract in late-2019.

The station, which forms part of the precinct, was officially closed in 2004 due to disuse.

For more information about the proposed re-development of the site, please contact Livingstone Shire Council on (07) 4913 5000 or 1300 790 919 or visit www.livingstone.qld.gov.au

    There will soon be movement at the station now that expressions of interest have been called for the renewal of Yeppoon’s heritage rail precinct.

    Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said the private sector should get involved in this exciting development opportunity, to be known as Station Quarter, in the heart of Yeppoon.

    “I’m calling on all interested parties who have the capability and capacity to work with the State Government’s specialist land use planning and property development unit, Economic Development Queensland, to unlock Yeppoon’s historic past and deliver a vibrant precinct that meets market demands and local needs,” Mr Dick said.
