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.

Four Towers Added to $2bn Broadbeach Masterplan

Four Towers Added to $2bn Broadbeach Masterplan

Four Towers Added to $2bn Broadbeach Masterplan

The Queensland government has approved four more towers for the Destination Gold Coast Consortium’s Broadbeach masterplan.

The Destination Gold Coast Consortium — a joint venture between Star Entertainment Group and Hong Kong-based partners Far East Consortium and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises will now undertake a 10-year construction phase to complete the master plan.

The newly added towers will create 3,000 new hotel rooms and will range in height between 52-74 storeys.

On completion, Star Gold Coast will be home to more than 50 bars and restaurants and employ 6,000 people in total.

“The masterplan in its entirety would see The Star Gold Coast boast more tourism accommodation than any other resort in Australia,” Star Entertainment Group chief executive Matt Bekier said.

“The 3,000 hotel rooms and apartments would also exceed what the world-renowned Marina Bay Sands in Singapore offers, and be on a scale to compare with the largest integrated resorts in Las Vegas.”

 

The first phase of the overall masterplan’s five new towers was approved in December 2016 and is currently under construction.

Construction recently began on the site’s third hotel tower, a $400 million project containing 316 guest rooms.

The 53-storey tower will be home Australia’s first Dorsett hotel as well as Star Residences, set to open in 2022.

“In addition to The Star Grand, The Darling and The Dorsett hotel tower, our expanded masterplan provides the opportunity for another four towers and world-class facilities,” Bekier said.

An estimated 1,800 jobs will be created to build each of the four remaining towers, totalling 7,200 construction jobs.

A further 3,000 people will be employed operationally across the four new towers.

“This state government stamp of approval gives The Star and its partners the opportunity to lift The Star’s profile with international tourists to even greater heights,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

All seven towers are estimated to be complete by 2028, with the Consortium outlining plans to build one new tower at its Broadbeach island site every two years.

Star is also undertaking the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane transformation combining their tourism assets within Queensland to $9 billion.

Developer Launches 25-Storey Mermaid Beach Tower. Western Australian developer Pindan has launched its first Gold Coast project to market at Mermaid Beach.

Developer Pindan has been an active player on Australia’s east coast over the past five years, with its funds management arm, Pindan Capital, overseeing $1.7 billion of development projects.

Its latest venture, a $110 million residential tower known as Mahala, will boast 94 spacious two and three bedroom apartments with two car bays, across 25-storeys.

The Cottee Parker designed residential tower, located on Peerless Avenue, will overlook Hedges Avenue, known colloquially as “millionaires row”.

The new tower will feature resort-style amenities including a terrace pool, residents lounge, private dining room along with a secure grocery and parcel delivery facility.

A rooftop solar farm system will allow residents to benefit from cheaper energy costs and lower strata fees.

“Mahala offers features you would expect in a private beachside home, a beautiful entry, and even a secure drop-off facility for residents who like to have their groceries, wine or other shopping items delivered,” Pindan director Nick Allingame said.

The tower sit just south of Sunland’s $200m, 45-storey tower which is currently on the market.

Colliers International residential director Andrew Roubicek said there had been well over 500 enquiries from prospective purchasers living locally as well as from Brisbane and interstate.

“Locals who are looking to make Mahala their home are saying the fact the vast majority of apartments are being sold with two carparks is a big drawcard, along with the prime location close to Hedges Avenue,” Roubicek said.

Pindan received planning approval in late July, with early construction work now commencing on site.

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.
