Surfers Paradise is set to be transformed with a landmark $800-million development
Ambitious plans for a transformative $800-million residential development in the heart of Surfers Paradise have been submitted to the Gold Coast City Council for approval. The incredible project is being undertaken in a joint-venture between SPG Land and Gordon Corp and, if approved, will deliver one of the largest residential projects ever undertaken on the Gold Coast. Here’s what we know so far …
Surfers Paradise has long been considered the heart of tourism on the Gold Coast, and now a brand-new development is set to revamp an entire block of the beachside suburb. The colossal 1.15-hectare site, bounded by Ferny Avenue, Surfers Paradise Boulevard, Pandanus Avenue and Ocean Avenue, is designed to deliver an urban oasis that will become a beacon for local, interstate and international visitors.
Designed by award-winning architectural firm Rothelowman and landscape firm Form, the development will include three towers comprising 38, 40 and 42 storeys respectively and inject a total of 792 apartments. One of the key cornerstones of the project is a new ground-level retail and dining plaza that is intended to activate the northern end of Surfers Paradise by offering a destination experience with signature retailers and food and beverage operators. The premium residential towers will offer bespoke amenities and be connected by a podium level to create an elevated ‘seaside village’ for residents. The focal point will undoubtedly be its jaw-dropping suspended glass-bottom lap pool with a view to street level 26 storeys below.
The development is expected to be officially launched to the market in the fourth quarter of this year.
