The Milton Residences are a new Brisbane property development combining luxurious resort style living with the convenience of a modern transit oriented community, offering property investors the pinnacle of inner city living, at less than two kilometers from the heart of Brisbane.

As the first Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in Brisbane under the Queensland Government’s South East Queensland Region Plan 2009-2031 (SEQRP), The Milton Apartments are leading the way in sustainable, green design.

A key element of the Queensland Government’s SEQRP is the TOD, a planning concept that sees the integration of a rapid, high frequency transport service with residential and commercial real estate, as well as spaces for community use. The implementation of TOD has been identified as an efficient means of promoting public transport as a means of travel, while reducing dependency on cars.

The Milton Apartments development incorporates the principles of TOD seamlessly into its design, with direct adjacency to the Milton Railway Station.

The Milton is two rails stops from the city, and only one rail stop from the Roma Street Transit Centre, which connects the CBD to suburban Brisbane, as well as the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

The Milton Railway Station will also be the subject of a multi-million dollar transformation, including new public amenities and ticketing areas, increase visibility across platforms and improved access from Milton Road and Railway Terrace.

The railway station refurbishment will convert the existing station into a sleek modern environment that will not only encourage the residents of the development to use, but will also promote rail travel as a convenient and sustainable alternative to the wider Milton community.

A forward thinking development, The Milton Apartments will showcase just how future development in Brisbane can be sustainable without compromising on design values. Investors choosing The Milton, will be choosing a healthier, greener future for Brisbane.
