Frankston Station Precinct Redevelopment

The Victorian Government is investing $63 million in the Frankston Station Precinct Redevelopment to deliver a safer, more modern place of business and activity and grow investment towards the long term-vision of a revitalised Frankston city centre.

The Frankston Revitalisation Board, chaired by Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke MP and comprising senior local leaders from key partners, will oversee the implementation of the redevelopment, including:

  • Rebuilding Frankston station, consolidating the buses on Young Street and upgrading the subway
  • Improving Young Street by creating a high quality pedestrian streetscape
  • Providing better pedestrian connections with key destinations
  • Creating new public plazas.

Frankston station design competition

A competition for Australian registered architects to create their vision for the new Frankston railway station attracted 39 entries. Five entries were shortlisted by the jury to proceed to Stage 2 of the competition and the jury met in early March to select the winner.

Genton Architecture's design for the new Frankston station was chosen by the competition jury as the unanimous winner among five finalists.

Genton Architecture will work with the Victorian Government to further develop their design, with construction starting in late 2017.

The jury for the Frankston Station Design Competition was:

  • Chair, Victorian Government Architect - Jill Garner, Vic
  • Architect, Adjunct Professor - Peter Elliott AM, Vic
  • Urban Designer - Felicity Stewart, NSW
  • CEO Frankston City Council - Dennis Hovenden, Vic
  • State Member for Frankston - Paul Edbrooke
  • Director DEDJTR - Geoff Oulton, Vic

The competition adviser and registrar was Sydney-based architect Stephen Varady.

More information on Genton Architecture's entry is available at the Frankston Revitalisation Hub on the corner of Young and Balmoral streets, opposite the station.
