SPG Land and Gordon Corp are planning an $800-million triple towers development on the King Tutt’s Putt Putt site in Surfers Paradise.
Plans, including 792 apartments as well as a retail and dining plaza on the largely undeveloped 1.15-hectare block, for the 38, 40 and 42 storey towers were lodged with the Gold Coast City Council by a private company linked to SPG Land Holdings in Hong Kong and the Gold Coast developer.
The plans also include a suspended glass-bottomed lap pool on the 26th level.
The plans by Rothelowman and landscape firm Form show each tower would be targeted to a separate demographic and built in separate stages.
Tower one, the smallest, is aimed at young people and families, with a main pool, lounge pool and bar, dining areas, gym and daycare centre.
Tower two would cater for families, with a kids’ zone, sky lounge and gym, while the third, and tallest, tower is aimed at “mature lifestyle buyers” with library, meeting rooms and the suspended lap pool.
The 103 Ferny Avenue block, with frontage on Surfers Paradise Boulevard, and Pandanas and Ocean avenues, was last sold by Hyundai in 2014 for $21 million.
It was listed for sale again in early 2019 and May 2020 and is currently owned by Ali Holdings 3 Pty Ltd with a small 241sq m space owned by the council. The site is zoned high-density residential.
SPG Land chairman David Wang said the proposed development would be a flagship project for the company.
“This is a transformational development, not only for Surfers Paradise but for the Gold Coast more broadly,” Wang said.
“We have had a long association with the Gold Coast and it’s especially exciting that we have been able to enlist the talents of a remarkable local team to bring this project to fruition.”
Gordon Corp developer Tim Gordon said the partnership marked a strengthening of the relationship between the companies and plans for future joint-venture projects.
“We believe this is a project for its time, created by looking to the past to find what made Surfers Paradise such an iconic address for generations,” Gordon said.
Previous plans for the site include a 50-storey mixed-use development with four towers in 2003, as well as an application including the QT Hotel site in 2007 of up to 65 storeys.
There was also a development approved in 2009 for two towers of 42 and 58-storeys, with 715 apartments and 1955sqm of commercial floor space along the Surfers Paradise Boulevard side of the site, which is valid until June 2022.

Mosaic Property Group lodge next Gold Coast apartment development after double Mermaid Beach sell-out
Mosaic Property boss Brook Monahan says the development will set a new benchmark of luxury living for an upmarket boutique building
The South East Queensland developer Mosaic Property Group are set for their next development on the Gold Coast.
It’s going to be their most boutique offering yet, with just nine whole floor apartments planned for the Burleigh Heads dress circle The Esplanade.
It will be located just up the road from their successful 47 apartment development Grace by Mosaic, which sold out in just a few months late last year.
The new apartments at 42 The Esplanade, dubbed The Heads in the submission to the Gold Coast City Council, will be designed by the architecture firm bureau^proberts and will replace the current brick apartment block built over five decades ago.
Mosaic Property boss Brook Monahan says the development will set a new benchmark of luxury living for an upmarket boutique building in Burleigh Heads.
“This is a genuinely world-class, one-of-a-kind address,” Monahan told Urban.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to create another outstanding address in Burleigh Heads, following the success of our first Burleigh project, Grace by Mosaic, which sold out in a matter of months.
“Our primary goal with 42 The Esplanade is to make it the most desirable, exclusive, and in-demand place to live on the entire beachfront in Burleigh.
Monahan says the the design draws on the areas’ natural beauty.
“The composition boasts honest materiality and elegant form,” Monahan says. It is singular in its execution while remaining authentic within the local context.”
In the design statement, bureau^proberts say the architectural design has a strong focus on subtropical building form, with a lightweight and breathable façade, lush green landscaping that continues from the ground level up and around the building, and an organic floor plate that pays homage to the undulating Burleigh headland.
Mosaic are already fielding enquiry from their VIP, pre-launch access list.
The Heads will feature a ground level pool, dining and lounge area. The apartments start on the ground level, the first complete with a large 130 sqm terrace with outdoor kitchen and landscaping.
Each apartment above will have balconies over 35 sqm.
Mosaic double-down in areas where they’ve seen great success. They had the same idea in the exclusive Mermaid Beach area, further north on the Gold Coast
After seeing success at Bela, Mosaic bought a site a few doors down on Peerless Avenue and created Dawn, which secured 95 per cent of its sales within its first two weeks of its pre-release to their database.
9 storey built form;
• 9 x 3-bedroom dwelling units;
• Two (2) levels of basement car parking with 29 resident spaces and 3 visitor spaces;
• Ample on-site landscaping and deep planting areas sufficient to contain large shade trees and balance the built form elements;
• Generous communal open space on the ground level and large private balconies for each apartment oriented to the beach;
• Pedestrian access directly off The Esplanade frontage; • Vehicle access to First Avenue via the adjoining development site, 4 First Avenue;
• Highly articulated building envelope with large boundary setbacks and separation to maintain residential amenity and privacy;
• Subtropical architectural design focused on enhancing the character of Burleigh Heads
The site at 42 The Esplanade gives new opportunity to acknowledge Burleigh’s beachfront appeal. The tower’s form is sensitive to its site and neighbourhood by responding to the existing Norfolk Pine trees, key aspect views and privacy requirements from its neighbours. The 9, single floor, vertically stacked coastal homes achieve stunning beachfront and headland views by opening the living areas out to the east, with the master bedroom placed prominently to give the residents an unrivalled northern aspect. The glazed envelope is protected down each side with horizontal batten screens which rhythmically move in and out as they rise up the building.
The slab edges move and fold around the building, reaching out to connect its inhabitants with the Esplanades’ parkland, then cutting in to open up views and angle breezes through the interior spaces. The movement of the floor plate is an homage to the undulating outcrops of the nearby headland.
Landscape is employed at the ground level to interact with the street and give space to the existing Norfolk Pine which has been previous been constrained on all edges. This allowance of space is replicated up the building with the southeast corners being cut back to give the tree its breathing space. Vegetation is continued up and around the building, creeping through the screens and with time, will drape and soften the building edges and contribute to the visual and micro-climatic coolth around the tower. As response to the beachfront climate, large outdoor living areas reduce the reliance on indoor conditioning. Breezes are mapped such that openings across and through the plan allow for effective cross ventilation of the interior

Rare Gold Coast Development Site on Offer
A masterplan development opportunity on the Gold Coast has become available through a joint marketing campaign with Colliers and CBRE.
The Seaview Avenue, Mermaid Beach property represents a 1.13ha development opportunity.
Colliers residential director Brendan Hogan said the site was “an unmatched opportunity to create a staged, mixed-use lifestyle precinct—with concept plans for 735 apartments across four towers”.
“Sites of this scale with wide-ranging potential are increasingly rare and we expect it will be highly sought after by residential and commercial developers alike,” he said.
With the serious lack of high-quality development opportunities south of Broadbeach, Seaview Avenue represented a fantastic opportunity for a developer to lock in their forward pipeline in one of the Gold Coasts most desirable suburbs, the agents said.
“This property represents a fantastic opportunity for a developer to deliver a staged lifestyle precinct commensurate with James Street and Gasworks in Brisbane supported by heightened demand from people to live, eat work and play within their own neighbourhood,” CBRE Gold Coast managing director Mark Witheriff said.
“The block sits prominently at the entrance to the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, features three street frontages and provides flexible planning provisions.
“The scarcity of the land available in Mermaid Beach presents developers with a remarkable opportunity to create a destination precinct in one of the Gold Coast’s premium suburbs.
“The property is within a 1km radius of the five major lifestyle and transport facilities in Broadbeach—The Star Casino, Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, The Oasis Shopping Centre, Gold Coast Convention Centre, and Broadbeach South G-Link Station.”
Colliers and CBRE will market the site via expressions of interest campaign that closes on September 1, 2021.

Southbank Revealed as First Brisbane Olympic Development
A prime piece of riverfront property is to be transformed into a temporary media centre for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Brisbane lord mayor Adrian Schrinner confirmed a new precinct was being planned on a major 7ha site on Montague Road in South Brisbane, bordering West End.
The site will be purchased for the Games to house the International Broadcast Centre for the event. After the games the centre will be converted to parkland.
The venue—where the world’s media will converge during the Games—is expected to be about 60,000sq m and would be within walking distance of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Schrinner said the project, the first of many developments to be rolled out in time for the games, aligned with the intent of the draft Kurilpa Riverfront Renewal MasterPlan which the council had been working on with the state for several years.
“For a decade and more, people have talked about South Bank being extended along this part of our river and I am so pleased we’re now moving forward to make those dreams become a reality,” Schrinner said.
“World Expo ‘88 was the catalyst for the creation of South Bank and now Brisbane 2032 will facilitate the next phase of this evolution.”
The industrial land at South Brisbane, occupied by the Parmalat milk factory, was earmarked in Brisbane City Council planning in 2014 for future urban and cultural development.
The council confirmed that negotiations with the owner of the industrial business on the site was under way.
A similar proposal was mooted by the state government in 2012 and involved a mix of public and commercial use along the riverbank, including an entertainment, retail and dining precinct and parkland.
The IOC Future Host Commission report says the state government will provide the funding to remediate the industrial land.
Brisbane is already undergoing rapid changes with $20-billion worth of major development planned or under construction as part of a committed $49.5-billion transport infrastructure pipeline.
Major development projects include the $5.4-billion Cross River Rail, $3.6-billion Queen’s Wharf casino and residences and the $1-billion Brisbane Airport third terminal.
The proposed $1-billion overhaul of the Gabba stadium, home to Queensland sport including cricket and AFL for 126 years, is also earmarked to be the epicentre of Brisbane’s Olympic activity. The upgrade would increase capacity to around 50,000 people.
It would also include a new pedestrian plaza, making the Games more accessible to people with disabilities and the elderly, linking the redesigned stadium to the Cross River Rail station, which is currently under construction.
As well, the Hamilton Northshore priority development area is being touted as the preferred location for the Brisbane Olympic Village.
The village will host more than 10,000 athletes and team officials for the Olympic Games and more than 5000 for the Paralympics.
State development minister Steven Miles said the Games would “do for Northshore Hamilton what Expo ‘88 did for South Bank”.
“Village construction will crystalise the area’s long-term plan and rejuvenate the existing industrial land,” Miles said.
“It will boost an already popular precinct—home to landmarks such as Portside, Eat Street Markets, and Alcyone Hotel, and some of Brisbane’s best waterfront living.”
After the Games, the village will be converted to a diverse residential offering, including aged care, retirement living, social and affordable housing, key worker, hotel, build-to-rent and market accommodation.
Northshore is also set to be the home of a proposed biomedical facility for Vaxxas to manufacture its world-leading, needle-free vaccines, which could be used for Covid-19.
