Frankston Revitalisation

Frankston City is a hub of investor activity, with more than $700 million committed to projects over the last five years.

This investment is being driven by Council projects and the private and public sectors, with the current Victorian Government committing approximately $240 million towards three of the major projects now underway: the Frankston Station Precinct Redevelopment, upgrades at Chisholm in Frankston and level crossing removal works at Skye/Overton Road.

With its ideal mix of city and beachside living, Frankston has become a hot-spot for private sector investment. Several multi-level apartments are on track for development in the city centre, a $40 million upgrade to Frankston Private Hospital has been recently completed and Chisholm Institute has made a $23.6 million investment towards the $70.5 million upgrade works at their Frankston campus.

Frankston Station Precinct Redevelopment

The Victorian Government committed $63.8 million to revitalise the Frankston Station Precinct. These redevelopment works aim to transform the City into a welcoming and safe place of business and activity and include:

  • Rebuilding Frankston Train Station
  • The Young Street Improvement Project, aimed at creating a high quality pedestrian and public transport environments
  • Improving bus connections and service efficiencies
  • Providing better pedestrian connections with key destinations, including upgrading the subway
  • Creating new public plazas.

A national competition was held for registered architects to submit their vision for the new Frankston railway station. From 39 applicants, Genton Architecture’s design was unanimously selected for the redevelopment works, due to its suitability to a beach side City.
