The development application proposes 60 dwellings for the XL Architecture-designed tower, which would comprise a mixture of three 3-bedroom apartments, 45 two-bedroom apartments, and 12 one-bedroom dwellings.

The application, which seeks code assessment for a mixture of 36 residential apartments and 24 short-term accommodation sits in a high-density zone, about 7-kilometres from Gold Coast’s city centre.

A 213sq m penthouse is proposed on the tower’s 21st level, which would comprise three ensuite bedrooms, and a north facing balcony.

The Broadbeach area is currently undergoing a large amount of urban renewal largely characterised by a mix of both old and new developments, with the 10 St Kilda Ave site located within the light rail urban renewal Area designated by the Gold Coast City Plan 2015.

Plans show the project would comprise six floors of serviced apartments, 11 floors of residential apartments, one floor of three-bedroom apartments, and the single floor penthouse. Along with two floors of recreational area split between level seven (double height recreational area), and the rooftop area.

Down the road, Brisbane developer Seymour Group was green-lit in April for a $32 million nine-level Bureau Proberts-designed residential tower at 2 First Avenue.

Led by property veteran Kevin Seymour, the developer plans to retain two of the luxury, one residence per floor, dwellings for private use.

Ridong Group’s $160m Garden Resort in Limbo

Ridong Group’s $160 million garden resort on the Gold Coast should be built elsewhere according to council officers.

A decision on the application for the 50 hectare development in Tallebudgera is expected to be made next week with council officers raising many concerns at a preliminary meeting.

Hundreds of submissions were made against the development application and a public rally attracted more than 400 people in December.

Ridong, a Chinese development company based in Zhuhai and one of the original developers for Jewel resort in Surfers Paradise, put forth the application for the wellness retreat in September 2018.

Plans on the 50 hectare site at 49 Tallebudgera Connection Road included 162 villas, 98 hotel rooms, four restaurants, a wedding chapel, day spa with 32 treatment rooms, museum, gallery, gardens and private lake.

DBI architects were behind the design, which previous projects include $1.7 billion Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, the $1 billion Jewel and the $200 million Infinity in Brisbane.

Council officers raised a number of concerns at an Economy, Planning and Environment Committee meeting.

“The proposed development is considered to present potential economic benefits through employment opportunities and tourism related revenue,” stated in the agenda.

“However, officers do not consider that these benefits are site specific and could be provided in a more suitable location.

“Further, the applicant has not demonstrated a ‘need’ for the development to be located at the subject site.

“Officers acknowledge that the proposed development includes components which could provide a benefit to the city, however, do not believe that these benefits warrant the approval of this application as officers believe such a development could be provided in a more suitable location.”

A final determination on the plans will be made when it goes to a full council meeting on February 18.

Brisbane’s Largest Demolition Commences

Brisbane’s Largest Demolition Commences (1)

The demolition of the original Brisbane Transit Centre in central Brisbane has moved ahead with the first of three buildings taken apart level by level.

The 18-storey Hotel Jen building along with the main transit centre building will now make way for the new 18,000 seat Brisbane Live entertainment precinct and Roma Street station—set to be the jewel in the state government’s $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project.

The Transit Centre on Roma Street, built at a cost of $48 million in 1986, last year welcomed an average of 19,000 people daily.

Cross River Rail minister Kate Jones said the demolition, one of Brisbane’s largest ever, was being undertaken by a subcontractor starting at the top and work down.

“Nothing says progress on a construction site like an 85-metre crane at work on a building completely engulfed in scaffolding,” Jones said.

“Floor by floor starting from the top and working their way down, the demolition crews have started to dismantle Hotel Jen with the East and West Towers of the Brisbane Transit Centre expected to start in March.”

Demolition is expected to be completed by late 2020. After that, the site will be prepared, and piling and station box excavation will be completed in the second half of 2021.

The demolition at Roma Street follows similar works being undertaken at Albert Street while work at the Exhibition Station in Bowen Hills is expected to commence in April.

Upgrade work was also set to begin at six stations from Salisbury to Fairfield in Brisbane’s inner south, as well as construction on three new Gold Coast stations at Pimpama, Helensvale North and Merrimac.

The first part of tunnelling on the project, from Woolloongabba towards Boggo Road, is scheduled for August.

The Pulse consortium will deliver the tunnel, stations and development—a partnership led by CIMIC Group companies, Pacific Partnerships, CPB Contractors, and UGL with international partners DIF, BAM and Ghella.

Unity Alliance will deliver the rail, integration and systems bringing together CPB Contractors, UGL, AECOM and Jacobs, and partners Hassell, RCS Australia, Acmena, Martinus Rail and Wired Overhead Solutions.

The Cross River Rail is expected to be up and running by 2024 while Brisbane Live, which is still shrouded in uncertainty, if given the go-ahead is expected to be complete by 2024, and could form part of Queensland’s efforts to bid for the 2032 Olympic Games.

“We expect that with Cross River Rail in place, an extra 47,000 people will choose rail instead of road by 2036,” Jones said.

Vendor of the Brisbane site is New South Wales’ based Traders in Purple, who received project approval for the twin- 10-storey development.

Knight Frank’s Christian Sandstrom and Adam Willmore, along with health and aged care specialist Russ Allison are jointly appointed to manage the 1A Northmore Street site via an expressions of interest campaign.

“Currently just under 10 per cent of the population in Mitchelton is over 65, but this is forecast to grow to 12 per cent by 2026,” he said.

“Along with the ageing population in surrounding suburbs including Keperra and Arana Hills, will drive accelerated demand for seniors living product in the area,” Alison said.

Sandstrom says there is a strong appetite for quality residential development sites in Brisbane.

“It offers opportunity to secure a quality mixed-use residential, seniors living and childcare development site in a very solid location.”
