Published

The developer of the failed $3 billion casino bid at the Gold Coast spit has lodged a development application for a super-slim beachfront skyscraper on Garfield Terrace in Surfers Paradise.

The ASX-listed ASF Group submitted the proposal for 50 luxury residential units across 31-storeys on a tight 607sq m site.

The proposed tower will comprise 46 two-bedroom apartments, three sub-penthouses (four-bedroom apartments) and just one five-bedroom, ultra-prestige, three-storey penthouse.

ASF acquired the site in early 2016 for $4,860,000, signing on architecture firm Blight Rayner and landscape architecture firm Byrns Lardner to steer the landscape-heavy design.

The main pedestrian entrance to the tower will be via Thornton Street, with communal recreation facilities including a yoga room, gym, club lounge and outdoor “infinity” pool proposed for the ground floor.

The building will feature an “automatic valet parking” system, with an operable lift taking just 86 seconds to store a car after a driver exits the vehicle.

The addition of the car parking system will allow the developer to more than double the amount of car parking spaces on the small 600sq m site.

If approved, the 104-metre tower site will be one of four 30-plus storey towers approved by council within a one kilometre radius of the site.

A number of luxury residential projects are under way close to ASF’s Garfield Street proposal, as developer’s respond to the growing demand for larger apartments on the Gold Coast.

The development application pointed to continual renewal south of the Surfers Paradise centre – led by Yuhu Group’s Jewel – as the “centre zone of Surfers Paradise grows”.

“A series of approved towers, up to 30 storeys, are positioned within the precinct of the proposed site,” the application said.

Yuhu Group’s $1 billion luxury Jewel development reached topping out stage in mid-August.

ASF Group’s Australian projects include the “Au” towers in Surfers Paradise and Southport, a 4-star beachfront hotel at Main Beach and the masterplanned three-stage Peninsula Hope Island community.

In London, ASF has proposed the $9 billion Castle Green urban renewal project which, if approved, will include the building of 15,000 dwellings and 370,000sq m of commercial, retail and community buildings.

The tower will cost an estimated $35 million to build and will aim for a 4 Star Green Star rating.

Ridong Unveils Plans for ‘World Class’ Gold Coast Tourism and Wellness Retreat

Published

on

gold coast tourism
Chinese developer Ridong, the original developer of the Gold Coast’s $1 billion Jewel project, has lodged plans for a “wellness and tourism retreat” in Tallebudgera Valley on the Gold Coast.

The $60 million proposal seeks approval for a six-star, 98-room key resort, 113 residential dwellings, a 16-hectare man-made lake and a contemporary European art and sculpture gallery modelled off Tasmania’s Museum of Old and Modern Art (MONA).

In plans submitted to the Gold Coast City Council in late September, Ridong has also proposed a 3-storey health and wellness centre with a day spa, a waterfront chapel for wedding services, two conference centres and three restaurants.

Chairman of the Ridong Group, Riyu Li, began acquiring parcels of land in Tallebudgera Valley in 2014.

The “wellness and tourism retreat” will cover sites owned by Li on Tallebudgera Connection Road and Tallebudgera Creek Road.

The Ridong Group sold its 45 per cent share in the Jewel towers in February.

In applying for the rezoning the rural 47.5-hectare rural site, Ridong has positioned the development as a “significant investment in the development of an integrated tourism resort” catering to a growing inbound tourism market interested in health and wellbeing.

Building heights will be largely low- to medium-rise, with the hotel component of the development reaching 5-storeys. The proposed development will cover less than 9 per cent of the nearly 50-hectare site.

The 4-storey, 14,885sq m contemporary art gallery will be privately operated and comprise a curated cultural exhibition space, a 100-seat theatre and automotive museum.

Ridong said that the gallery will act as a “world class” tourism attraction for the area as the Gold Coast “doesn’t currently have an art gallery of such proposed scale”.

Ridong has appointed architecture firm DBI for preliminary design duties.

The major development is currently in preliminary assessment with the Gold Coast City Council and is not expected to progress before 2019.

The Urban Developer reached out to Ridong but did not hear back by the time of publication.

One of Gold Coast City’s ‘s newest communities, Vue Terrace Homes, is starting to take shape.

With more than 200 workers on site each day, Robina Group’s $170 million city-shaping project is creating jobs and boosting the economy.

Hutchinson Builders commenced construction of the major Robina Group development in March on a central site overlooking Gold Coast City Council’s 17-hectare Robina City Parklands.

The parklands are due for a $15 million upgrade by Council to transform them into Gold Coast’s “Central Park”, the tender process for the project has just commenced with works due to start this year.

Buyers have already invested more than $91 million in Vue Terrace Homes, including almost $16 million in sales in the penultimate release – stage three.

Hutchinson Builders Gold Coast manager Paul Hart said the project, situated on East Lane in the heart of Robina, was a hive of activity.

All homes in the six-hectare, gated Vue Terrace Homes residential community feature three bedrooms plus a second multi-use living perfect for a media room or study.

“At the peak of construction, we will have more than 300 staff on site daily, with a total of more than 3000 people employed as a direct result of this development, which is keeping Gold Coast workers close to home and boosting the local economy,” he said.

“Roofs have started to go on to many homes and many more are framed up and we have also started interior works, including plastering and joinery.”

All homes in the six-hectare, gated Vue Terrace Homes residential community feature three bedrooms plus a second multi-use living perfect for a media room or study.

Residents of the Vue community will have direct access into Robina City Parklands where they will be able to enjoy multiple fishing platforms, a village green with event stage, walking trails, playgrounds and a café once the multi-million transformation is complete.

Robina Group sales manager Azura Griffen said Vue Terrace Homes was brought to market to fulfil strong demand for terrace homes in Robina.

The first Vue Terrace Homes will be completed early next year, with stage two expected to be delivered shortly after.

“Vue features high-quality homes to meet demand in this fast-growing region, with Robina’s population workforce predicted to double by 2050,” she said.

“This new community offers the chance to secure a low-maintenance, urban property at the geographic heart of the city, with the best education options right on your doorstep and an ideal lifestyle just ten minutes to the beach.

“Projects such as Robina City Parklands are further adding to the precinct’s appeal, and we have already recorded increased enquiry since the announcement in June that Council plans to commence upgrade work on the parklands later this year.”

The first Vue Terrace Homes will be completed early next year, with stage two expected to be delivered shortly after.

The Vue Terrace Homes sales and display centre is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm on the corner of East Lane and Stadium Drive, Robina.

The Gold Coast Airport has been given the go ahead by federal government for a new $50 million hotel to commence work.

The hotel’s major development plan was given approval by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure Michael McCormack, allowing development of the Rydges brand hotel to move forward with construction.

Developer Trepang, associated with John Robinson and Nick Paspaley, will deliver the seven-storey hotel that will feature 192 rooms and suites, a rooftop bar and viewing deck.

The hotel development, which will have views over Kirra beach and the airport runway, will create 90 construction jobs and more than 60 jobs post-construction.

Airport owner Queensland Airports Limited (QAL) chief executive Chris Mills said work is expected to commence on the project before the end of this year.

“This is a great project for the airport, and for the Gold Coast and northern NSW,” he said.

Earlier this year Mills said half a billion dollars would be invested into the Gold Coast airport precinct under the airport’s Project LIFT expansion plan to be rolled across the next few years to manage mounting demand.

“An airport hotel is something that has been missing at Gold Coast Airport and now that we have the approval, we can move ahead with another important part of our development plan designed to further activate the precinct and accommodate growth,” Mills said.

It’s expected the airport will usher $818 million a year to the region and generate 20,000 full time jobs by 2020.

Gold Coast Airport welcomed 6.6 million passengers heading to and from south east Queensland and Northern NSW last financial year, while passenger numbers are expected to reach 16.6 million annually by 2037.

Construction is expected to start this year with the hotel operational in 2019.
