Dreamworld to build $75 million resort under new agreement

Dreamworld

Dreamworld could soon have a $75 million resort and tourist park across the road in Coomera.

The company entered a non-binding agreement on Wednesday with accommodation developer Evolution Group to fund and build the resort on the land owned by the theme park’s parent company Ardent Leisure.

The hotel would include 240 four-star rooms, 40 bungalows and a five-star tourist park with 100 powered sites and restaurants, conference facilities, pools and a gymnasium.

Dreamworld Resort guests would also have offers to access the Dreamworld and WhiteWater World theme parks throughout their stay.

Dreamworld chief executive officer Greg Yong said the arrangement would boost tourism.

“This announcement is another positive step in the recovery of our parks post-COVID and will have a significant economic impact not only for Dreamworld, but also for the northern Gold Coast, one of Australia’s fastest-growing regional corridors,” he said.

“The project will create employment within the local community and contribute to the regeneration of tourism on the Gold Coast.

“The hotel and tourist park will complement Dreamworld as a premium entertainment destination and add a new level of convenience for guests who will have our theme park and water park on their accommodation’s doorstep.”

Queensland theme parks were forced to close in March last year because of the coronavirus pandemic and Dreamworld and WhiteWater World reopened in August, offering discounted tickets in an attempt to attract people in for the September school holidays.

Evolution Group boss John Robinson jnr said he looked forward to collaboratively delivering high-quality accommodation options for guests.

“The Evolution Group team is a family company providing over 2200 rooms around Australia through our resorts and accommodation houses,” he said.

“Having Australia’s favourite theme park on the doorstep of this development will certainly provide guests with action-packed getaways.”

Dreamworld and Evolution Group would work together to obtain planning approvals, while Ardent Leisure would explore options to maximise the value of its surplus land.

“There’s been overwhelming success since launch in April from the local market, looking to either downsize, invest or secure something for the children,” Scriven said.

“Locals have really embraced the project. They haven’t really had that offering ever.”

The project by the Townsville-based Honeycombes, in partnership with their financier MaxCap, will comprise the 82 apartment block The Fernery, as well as a 12,000 sqm retail centre set next to the Ferny Grove train station.

Fresh off the success of their nearby Flow and Awaken Residences, the Gold Coast developer S&S Projects has lodged plans for its latest coastal development.

They’re set to develop a mixed-use precinct at 217-227 Boundary Street Coolangatta, a few streets back from Rainbow Bay.

Above ground level retail will be two interconnected buildings designed by Cottee Parker Architects totalling 96 apartments.

The main residential tower will have 72-two bedroom apartments and 19-three bedroom apartments across 12 levels.

Located at the front of the precinct will be the more boutique tower of just eight levels, home to five three bedroom apartments and one four bedroom penthouse.

The crowning glory of the development in Club Esprit, a rooftop residents only rooftop and wellness space in the main tower.

The rooftop features a lap pool with day beds and spa and a full wellness centre with gym, sauna, steam room, ice bath and treatment room.

There’s a relaxation lawn, a communal kitchen with large dining space, bar, and private dining terrace with barbecue facilities which can be hired. There’s also two communal barbecue facilities next to a playground lawn.

S&S director Paul Gedoun says he has a fundamental belief in the southern Gold Coast, off the back of the exceptional success in Flow and Awaken.

“Our vision for our projects looks to enhance the community feel, creating dwellings that are in line with our liveable luxury trademark,” Gedoun says.

“We expect that this project will provide a positive impact in the local community with the amalgamation of several sites providing a master-planned approach to the area.

“We always strive to deliver high quality owner-occupier residences in prime locations, respecting the sense of community ownership and the surrounding environment and we’ve taken that vision to a new level with Esprit.”

S&S have seen great success at their nearby Awaken Residences at Rainbow Bay, where their recent $8.15 million sale of the two-level penthouse was the highest apartment sale recorded south of Mermaid Beach.

Only four of Awaken’s nine expansive whole floor apartments now remain, each set to go for upwards of $4 million each after more than $20 million in sales in the first five apartments to predominantly local and interstate buyers.

Flow Residences was named Australia’s fastest selling beachfront apartments following their $74 million sell-out in late October with apartments selling at an average $3.5 million. Construction is underway and is due for completion in 2022.

Esprit Design Statement

In the design statement submitted to the Gold Coast City Council, Cottee Parker Architects call Esprit “a unique architectural offering at Rainbow Bay, that is directly inspired by the rock pools and formations this part of the world is known for.

“The proposed development at 217-227 Boundary Street is a premium one of a kind development, comprising of two interconnected buildings across two street frontages.

“Surrounded by dramatic natural beauty, Esprit draws upon its context to create a design that encapsulates the desirable sub-tropical lifestyle of the Gold Coast. Boundary Street The building’s design is inspired by nearby Snapper Rocks and the pockets of tidal pools formed over time.

“Tinted glazing emulates the tranquil reflective waters, separated by striated layers of rock, represented by the facade’s horizontal banding. These horizontal elements layer across the building facade to form balcony edges that grow and build at the edges.

“Within these sheltered edges, landscaping grows to provide a small garden space to each unit, just like the pocket parks that are scattered throughout Coolangatta.”

Sammut Group Lodges $350m Cronulla Retail Precinct Plan

Cronulla

A bold $350-million plan to reinvigorate the northern end of Cronulla ’s CBD would transform a 5225sq m site into a mixed-use residential and retail precinct.

Sammut Group acquired the Northern Gateway properties between 3 and 23 Kingsway at Cronulla with venture capital partner Alceon Group.

Plans for initial demolition works plus a three-storey basement car park and two-storey retail and commercial podium have been lodged with the Sutherland Shire Council this month.

Ultimately the site would include residential, commercial and retail mixed-use developments, including 112 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, 885sq m of commercial space, restaurants, shops and a flagship Harris Farm Markets store.

It supersedes plans for a 21-storey boutique hotel mooted for the site in 2018.

Sammut Group director Allen Sammut said the block of land between Croydon Street and Abel Place was one of the largest commercial sites in the southern Sydney beachside suburb.

“This is a game-changing development that will provide the catalyst for the future revitalisation and growth of the Cronulla CBD,” Sammut said.

“It’s a pivotal project for the area, particularly the many businesses in Cronulla that have been struggling in recent years.

“We’re extremely excited and eager to see our vision for this iconic gateway site come to life, ushering in a new era of optimism and opportunity for Cronulla.”

Harris Farm Markets co-chief executive Luke Harris said they were “thrilled” to launch their flagship store as part of the development.

“Harris Farm Markets has been looking for an appropriate location in the shire for many years… ,” he said.

“The store would be the largest Harris Farm store in Sydney and will introduce new food concepts we haven’t explored before.”

Sammut Group has an extensive portfolio and impressive reputation in the New South Wales market bolstered by the success of developments including Banc, Loft, Breeze and Drift in Cronulla and its surrounds.

Sammut Group is also awaiting approval for a development application for a commercial and hospitality precinct, PARC, in conjunction with Alceon Group, opposite Cronulla’s train station.
