A townhouse development on the historic former Hawkins Garden Centre site at Albany Creek in Brisbane’s north has been launched by Unison Projects.

Construction has started on the 74 townhouse project at 623 Albany Creek Road, Albany Creek.

Unison Projects’ Matt O’Driscoll said the $37 million estate spread on 3.2 ha has been named Preston Point, chosen after a competition among Albany Creek State High School students who were invited to suggest a name. 

“There were many entries with lots of brilliant ideas but the successful entry came from students Madalyn Martin, Kirra Young and Stephanie McBean,” O’Driscoll said.

“Their inspiration came from the history of the parcel of land.  It was originally purchased on 1 December 1865 by John Preston. The girls won $100 each.” 

The Preston Point Residences offers a creekside urban retreat. Features include a swimming pool with wrap around deck, BBQ area, fire pit, bocce court, communal vegetable garden and a lawn.

The townhouses come in two, three and four-bedroom designs, all featuring 2.5 bathrooms and two car garage. 

“With 18 varieties of terrace designs and numerous facades to choose from, there’s a new home to suit all tastes,” O’Driscoll said.
