Albury is in a building boom
AFTER many years of strategic planning,
Albury’s $50 million Volt Lane project is
coming to fruition.
This once underutilised space now houses
the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and
a new multi-deck carpark providing 497
spaces over three levels. This project has
been the catalyst for several other projects
in the Albury CBD.
The announcement that Accor will be
developing a $20 million, 120 room
hotel within the Volt Lane precinct will
see commercial opportunities for this key
CBD location maximised. Construction
on the hotel and 16 site fresh food market,
which will front onto Amp and Volt lanes,
is due to commence in mid-2013.
The adjacent Target outlet has also
redeveloped its interface with Volt Lane
by enlarging the Amp Lane entry and
increasing the window areas.
The City Walk Arcade, which is also
located adjacent to the Volt Lane
development, has recently undergone a
$900,000 refurbishment. This arcade
of 21 tenancies is a critical link in the
recognised pedestrian trail within the
Albury CBD, linking Dean Street to the
Volt Lane carpark, Target and the Centro
Another flow-on effect of the Volt Lane
project has been the opportunity for
Quest to utilise the “Old Wool Store”
building, formerly the ATO premises,
for a development of 49 serviced
apartments. This will provide Quest with
a second presence in the Albury CBD.
Construction work for this $7 million
project commenced in January.
Another significant project in the
Albury CBD is the recently completed
Botanical apartments. This seven-storey
development is located at the western end
of Dean Street. It combines residential
and commercial space and leads the way
for high density CBD residential living in
Plans for a second multi-storey apartment
complex on Dean Street have also been
announced. The $12 million Gardens
apartments will include 16 apartments and
Zauner Construction’s two-storey office
building on the corner of Kiewa and
Wilson Streets is nearing completion.
The $10 million project will offer quality
commercial space in a development which
has environmentally friendly credentials
that until now have only been delivered
in metropolitan commercial developments.
The former flour mill site in Young Street
is an opportunity for significant future
commercial and retail growth in the
Albury CBD. This area has been gradually
changing face since the opening of the
Hume Freeway. Most recently Albury City
has worked with Railcorp, owner of the
historic Albury railway station precinct, on
its beautification and the renovation and
conversion of the former station master’s
house into the Albury Visitor Information
In addition, Baker Motors has recently
completed a high profile expansion of
its Young Street showroom and has also
relocated its service centre to this site.
Further along, the former Winsor Park
bowling club site is also earmarked for
In the Lavington CBD, the construction of
Northpoint Tower is nearing completion.
This $10 million project combines offices
and shops over five storeys and also a new
450m2 venue for the Lavington Library.
