Albion flour mill site gets a second lease on life

Once an iconic flour mill, The Hudson has transformed into a highly anticipated completed apartment building, offering breathtaking city views that leave residents in awe.

Located on the site of the old Albion Flour Mill, which tragically fell victim to an arson attack in 2013, the area has been revitalized with the recent official opening of The Hudson. The grand event saw the presence of approximately 120 guests, including Scott Hutchinson, the chairman of Hutchinson Builders, and Kris Kowalski, the principal architect from Kowalski Architects.

Tim Jones, the managing director of Twin Ocean Corporation, expressed his delight at the completion of the project, which had been three years in the making. He commended the collaboration with Hutchinson Builders, highlighting that the development was delivered on time and within budget.

“When we compare ourselves to other nearby developments, I am proud to say that our quality is outstanding. The views from every side of the building, spanning across the city, Hamilton, and even out to the airport, are simply remarkable,” Mr. Jones remarked. “The Hudson is a true transport-oriented development set in an exclusive suburb, and it faces virtually no competition.”

The mixed-use development comprises 164 apartments, primarily catering to owner-occupiers. Mr. Jones emphasized that The Hudson stands as a true owner-occupied building in a sought-after location. While there are some rental units, the rental rates obtained by owners testify to the building’s status as an iconic destination, unburdened by excessive development like the Valley and West End.

David Treloar, the principal and auctioneer at Ray White Albion, noted that The Hudson has generated significant buzz in the Albion community, with locals eagerly anticipating its completion. “It has been the talk of the town, and many people are thrilled to witness its emergence,” he stated. “The quality of construction, stunning views, and the proximity to amenities, without feeling surrounded, have been the primary selling points.”

Residents of The Hudson enjoy convenient access to the city via the nearby train station, situated just three stops away from the CBD. They also benefit from the burgeoning café strip in the Albion hub on Sandgate Road.

While many buyers initially underestimated the remarkable city and hinterland views, they were pleasantly surprised upon witnessing them, even from apartments as low as the second level. During a recent preview evening, the sales team was inundated with inquiries.

“With 45 apartments still available, the majority are one-bedroom units and spacious two-bedroom residences, ranging from $399,000 to a luxurious three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse priced at $1.35 million,” Mr. Jones revealed. “The two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses are ideal for downsizers, while the generous one-bedroom apartments appeal to professional couples, given Albion’s close proximity to exclusive residential suburbs like Ascot, Hamilton, and Teneriffe, but without the hefty price tags.”

Residents of The Hudson are treated to an array of exclusive amenities, including a private residents’ pool deck, fully equipped gym, BBQ facilities, a dedicated concierge service, and a 24-hour on-site manager. Additionally, the ground floor is home to five retail spaces, all fully leased. The retail tenants include a convenience store, café operator, restaurant, and a commercial office spanning across two tenancies.

The Hudson stands as a testament to the successful transformation of a historic flour mill site into a remarkable residential landmark, providing residents with an unmatched living experience and a sense of architectural prestige.
