A playground on the northern Gold Coast has been recognised as the state’s best park after taking out a top industry gong.

Two Gold Coast winners were among 17 projects to be honoured by the Queensland Landscape Architecture Awards last night.

The impressive community play hub known as Bim’bimba Park in Pimpama, designed by Brisbane based Form Landscape Architects, won the Parks and Open Spaces category.

“Bim’bimba Park tells a rich, exciting and detailed story and has been underpinned by simple design principles that respond carefully to its setting to deliver a range of spaces for active play and recreation,” said Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture (AILA) Queensland Jury Chair Deb Robbins.

AILA Queensland President David Uhlmann said shared outdoor spaces have taken on even greater importance following the COVID-19 crisis.

“With Gold Coast locals spending more time enjoying local parks, backyards, and green spaces, landscape architecture has been brought to the forefront,” he said.

“We believe there has been a new-found realisation of the importance of green space and active travel opportunities that are complementary to essential infrastructure, not only in our city centres, but also in our neighbourhoods, and surrounding our homes.”

The landscape planning category award went to The Urban Tree Canopy, a Gold Coast study by global firm Arup.

“With a growing population and increasing development on the Gold Coast region, this study makes rigorous analysis and judgment on the effects of both increased and decreased tree canopy,” said Ms Robbins.

“The outcome is a plan for unprecedented climate changes and provides a baseline for understanding urban heat island effects on the Gold Coast.”

Gold Coast set for Australia’s first Mondrian brand residences and five-star hotel

five-star hotel

The boutique US hotel operator Mondrian has announced it will open its first five-star hotel and brand residence in Australia at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.

Mondrian, a partnership between SBE Entertainment and hospitality giant Accor, has engaged the local developer Vitale Project to construct the two tower development which is slated for completion in mid-2023.

The two towers, designed by the multi-award-winning architect Elenberg Fraser, will separate the 89 private residences from the hotel, which will have 208 guest rooms.

Studio Carter, the international hospitality design consultant, was commissioned to oversee the interior design.

The building will be connected by a three-level podium that acts as the building’s communal space and will home a state-of-the-art fitness center, spa, restaurants, and swimming pools, all overlooking the beach.

It’s being built on 4,035 sqm on the corner of First Avenue and The Esplanade Burleigh Heads.

Mondrian Gold Coast is one of nine new Mondrian properties that SBE plans to open globally by 2022, with six more to be announced.

It follows the company’s recent opening of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, and the announcement of Mondrian Shoreditch London set to open in 2021.

The Gold Coast has grown into one of Australia’s leading travel destinations and the opening of Mondrian Gold Coast is the next step in our strategic global expansion for the Mondrian brand, selecting communities at the heart of the most exciting cultural destinations in the world,” SBE’s chief operating officer Chadi Farhat said.

Accor Pacific chief executive Simon McGrath said the expansion of the first-ever Mondrian into Australia reflects Accor’s commitment to developing innovative, lifestyle-oriented hotels alongside SBE.

“With the Mondrian brand, SBE creates destinations within the destination, bringing together regional authenticity with sophisticated design, creative programming, and a lively bar and restaurant scene.

“Mondrian Gold Coast will be the embodiment of this philosophy: providing residents and guests with elevated hospitality experiences that match the beauty and vibrancy of Australia’s Gold Coast region.”

LGC Property Investments, directed by Chris and Letitia Vitale, paid $22 million for the site, which currently houses the 1960s apartment block White Horses Apartment, in July.

There had been an agreement in place for the Brisbane-based Neilson Properties to buy the site in 2018, but that failed to proceed.

The White Horse Apartment owners had been in court battles for a number of years trying to band together to sell their combined 49 apartments.

But because it was a company titled block, they needed 100 percent of the vote to approve a sale, however, six owners resisted.
