The suburb of Rhodes was formerly predominately industrial. Beginning in the 1990s with the gated village/suburb of Liberty Grove (the luxury suburb opened in 1998) the area was redeveloped. It now includes residential apartments, commercial offices and the Rhodes Shopping Centre.
In the 2000s Rhodes station underwent a major redevelopment, with the new station featuring a new air conditioned concourse with lofty roofs, glass walls and curving, bright ceilings. There are covered staircases and lifts to the fully undercover platforms. On the concourse, there are two ticket offices for passenger information and ticket sales.
