A CITY OF THE FUTURE

Experiencing a new economic boom, the Gold Coast is expecting an injection of billions of dollars’ worth of infrastructure across the city over the coming years including:

  • $200 million in sporting, transport and community infrastructure for the 2018 Commonwealth Games
  • M1 motorway upgrades
  • the Jupiter Star Casino expansion
  • luxurious high-rise resorts, e.g. the billion-dollar Jewel project in Surfers Paradise
  • a sport and community centre in the neighbouring suburb of Pimpama
  • many other development applications with council, including an adventure theme park along the Nerang river.

ECONOMIC IMPACT

The Gold Coast economy is valued at $25 billion. While traditionally focusing on tourism and construction, council is now committed to diversifying the city, investing in manufacturing, health, education and professional services with employment expected to reach approximately 300,000 in the next decade.

2018 COMMONWEALTH GAMES

The Gold Coast will host the XXI Commonwealth Games in 2018, Australia’s largest event this decade.

Launching the Gold Coast onto the world stage, the Games will showcase the city to a global audience of more than one billion4.

WESTFIELD COOMERA TOWN CENTRE

Westfield’s new proposed Coomera shopping centre, expected to open in 2018, will deliver a major economic boost to the region.

The development is expected to ultimately comprise approximately 77,000 sqm and will create thousands of job opportunities, within a short walk to The Link Coomera.

M1 MOTORWAY UPGRADE

The Link Coomera is located approximately 1km from Exit 54, which has received a $74.7 million upgrade to manage the increase in traffic created by the new Westfield shopping centre and residential boom, making access to The Link Coomera even easier6.

GOLD COAST LIGHT RAIL — CONNECTING THE GOLD COAST

The Gold Coast light rail system, with the capacity to move more than 3000 passengers per hour, links all the Gold Coast’s hotspots – including Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast University Hospital.

The $420 million stage two project will see the line continued through to neighbouring suburb Helensvale, with seven new stations, terminating at Helensvale railway station – just one stop away from the Coomera railway station7.

FLEXIBILITY OF ZONING

The Link Coomera is a 54-hectare property (Phase 1 is 36 hectares and Phase 2 is 18 hectares) that is zoned for both industrial (low impact industry) and mixed use (fringe business) allowing for multiple commercial uses and large format retail.

(Note that prospective owners will be required to obtain development approvals under the Planning Act (QLD) 2016 for their proposed uses for each of the individual lots. More detail regarding the zoning, intended uses within zones and assessment are contained in the City Plan adopted by the City of Gold Coast (Council). A link to a City Plan Property Report compiled by the Council is provided hereunder.)

The mixed-use zoning at The Link Coomera will be the newest and most significant industrial and mixeduse development on the Gold Coast.

FEATURES

Your business will benefit from the many features of The Link Coomera including:

  • An elevated position, with excellent exposure to motorists on the M1 Motorway.
  • A large variety of lots, ranging in size from 0.23Ha to larger than 1.6Ha, all serviced to Council regulations.
  • A beautifully landscaped estate including large ecological open spaces and a creek.
  • Easy connection and access to Coomera Town Centre and major transport nodes including the Coomera train station.

STAY CONNECTED

Getting to The Link Coomera is easy, no matter where your workers, customers and suppliers are travelling from, due to its convenient and central location.

The site is located adjacent to the M1 Motorway and approximately 1km north of the interchange at Exit 54, creating easy access from the south (Gold Coast CBD and beyond), the north (including Beenleigh and Brisbane) and from the northern suburbs of the Gold Coast located to the west of the M1 motorway.

The Link Coomera is conveniently located on an existing service road (Old Pacific Highway).

The Coomera train station is approximately 800m south with the possibility of a public transport link planned to travel through The Link Coomera.

The future Coomera North M1 Motorway interchange will be partially located on the northern side of the The Link Coomera as part of Phase 2 developments.

A four-lane trunk road connection is planned to extend from the Coomera North interchange, travelling across the rail corridor to provide access to the existing East Coomera residential community and the future high-density residential development on the east of the rail corridor. This will also include an overpass across the M1 Motorway , providing access to communities located to the west of the motorway.

A new trunk road connection is planned to cross through The Link Coomera between the existing M1 Exit 54 to the south, and the future Coomera North interchange.

Star Entertainment Group to fast-track development of fourth hotel tower at The Star Gold Coast

Star Entertainment Group to fast-track development of fourth hotel tower at The Star Gold Coast

Australia’s Star Entertainment Group has revealed it will fast track development of a fourth tower of The Star Gold Coast as part of the property’s ongoing AU$850 million makeover.

Construction on the tower, set to stand 215 meters tall, will now start in 2020 with apartment pre-sales to begin as early as next month. It will also house a 5-star hotel, restaurants and bars, a day spa and night time entertainment venues.

“This latest hotel tower will further progress the internationally-competitive resort facilities we are offering to domestic and international tourists,” said Star Entertainment Group Managing Director and CEO Matt Bekier.

“If our masterplan is rolled out in full – and there is so much more we would like to deliver – The Star Gold Coast will be the equal of the finest integrated resorts in the world and complement our AU$3.6 billion project at Queen’s Wharf Brisbane.

“Under the right conditions and circumstances, we will operate both properties in tandem as beacons for south-east Queensland, drawing interstate and international visitors to turbo-charge the tourism industry.”

The new tower will be The Star Gold Coast’s second mixed-use hotel and apartment tower after the AU$400 million Dorsett, which broke ground in 2018 and is due for completion by 2022.

Star Entertainment Group recently unveiled its proposed AU$2 billion masterplan for the Gold Coast, including four more hotel towers and associated facilities on Broadbeach island, although that plan might be shelved should the Queensland State Government follow through with its plan to issue a second Gold Coast casino license.

The government last month called for global Registrations of Interest in developing a new casino on the Gold Coast, with the likes of Genting Group, Caesars International and Hard Rock International among the operators said to be interested.

Developer Reduces Gold Coast Skyscraper by 17-Storeys

Developer Reduces Gold Coast Skyscraper by 17-Storeys

Changing market conditions has prompted a Gold Coast developer to slash 46 apartments from its permit-approved Main Beach skyscraper.

Builder-cum-developer Heron Building Group has resubmitted an application to Gold Coast council to drastically amend the proposal, reducing the building size from 55-storeys to 38 and cutting the amount of apartments on offer.

Heron won approval for the original 55-storey design in 2016.

In its application, Heron said that development had been amended “due to construction costs and to reflect current market demand”.

Construction costs in south east Queensland are expected to rise by 2.5 per cent in 2019, consultancy Turner & Townsend reported in its latest construction market survey.

Heron has tapped architecture firm Cottee Parker to design the new scheme, which reduces the front setback by 3 metres but increases the building length by 5 metres.

The developer proposes to retain the car lift system and increase the amount of car parking spaces from 223 to 241. The new scheme has removed the 160 bike spaces set aside in the approved proposal.

New forecasts predict a peak-to-trough decline of 30 per cent in residential construction across the country, with residential commencements expected to bottom out at 161,000 dwellings in 2019-20.

The downturn has prompted developers across the nation to opt out of residential schemes.

Winten Property Group more than halved its Main Beach project, replacing a 250-apartment, 47-storey scheme with a 21-storey proposal.

While Gold Coast developer Sunland cut 19-storeys from its Labrador apartment project late last year.

Heron Building Group did not return calls for comment on Wednesday.

Crane Spotting Gold Coast Cranes Rise as Brisbane Sees Decline-min

Brisbane suffered the biggest decline in cranes standing across its city, while coastal neighbour the Gold Coast recorded a 33 per cent increase, according to the latest Rider Levett Bucknall Crane Index.

Brisbane is home to a remaining 59 cranes, down from 72 counted six months ago.

Based on the idea that cranes in the sky reflect major project construction, the RLB index tracks the number of tower cranes in key Australian cities to indicate the strength of the construction sector.

Brisbane’s decline reflects the fall in building work done for the calendar year 2018.

The residential sector declined by 7.2 per cent, with declines recorded for both new houses and apartments, and the nonresidential sector fell by 4.2 per cent.

The overall decline of eight cranes in inner Brisbane was driven by the mixed-use sector.

Cranes were removed from Howard Smith Wharves, 949 Ann Street, Queens Wharf and South City Square based in inner Brisbane which accounted for eight dismantled cranes.

The residential count of cranes sits at 42.

New projects where cranes commenced were recorded in Brisbane, Bulimba, Greenslopes, Hamilton, Kangaroo Point, New Farm, Newstead, South Brisbane, Toowong, Westend, Windsor and Yeronga.

Crane spotting on the Goldie

The Gold Coast continues its upward trajectory on the crane index, recording a 33 per cent rise.

Eighteen cranes were added and ten were removed bringing the coast’s total to 32.

The residential sector makes up 94 per cent of all Gold Coast cranes, with the highest number located in the Palm beach area.

New residential cranes were added to developments, including Bluewater in Bilinga, Vue Apartments and Elysian in Broadbeach.
