Youth Homeless Centre in Southport Under Way

Work on a new $13 million Youth Foyer for young people at risk of homelessness on the Gold Coast has turned the first sod.

The Queensland government purchased the site for $2.6 million in 2017, with plans for completion of the Southport-based project originally slated by the end of this year.

The centre, at North and High Street, will be managed by Gold Coast Youth Service in partnership with Horizon Housing Company, and provide accommodation for vulnerable young people aged 16 to 25 years.

“So, rather than worrying about where you’re going to sleep or where your next meal is coming from, you can study and work hard to create a brighter future,” member for Gaven Meaghan Scanlon said.

Each young person living in the Youth Foyer would need to be in employment, education or training to be eligible to live at the centre.

Scanlon said they will also pay 25 per cent of their income in rent.

The development will include 40 self-contained apartments with 24-hour on-site supervision and support for the young tenants.

“We are working with the Gold Coast community to build something that meets the expectations and needs of not just future residents, but the local community who will welcome them in,” Housing and Public Works Minister Mick de Brenni said.

“What’s clear is that this community is crying out for more social and affordable housing.”

This project is expected to employ 600 tradies including 60 apprentices.

Burleigh Heads Twin 22-Storey Towers Approved

Burleigh Heads Twin 22-Storey Towers Approved (1)

Two 22-storey towers have been approved in Burleigh Heads at the southern end of the Gold Coast, backed by developer Nielson Properties.

The beachfront towers, located at 48-58 The Esplanade and First Ave, had been supported by a majority of councillors in a council planning committee held last Thursday, in a nod that will see the first five-star hotel in the area.

The final determination on the Burleigh Heads project was made on Tuesday when full council came to vote.

The $350 million development project, in conjunction with Pointcorp’s Chris Vitale, comprises a 132-room luxury hotel and 77 residential apartments on the amalgamated 4039sq m Burleigh Heads site.

The Burleigh Heads site has been occupied by the 49-unit White Horse Holiday apartments, which Nielson Properties secured under a put-and-call deal for $22 million in 2018.

Plans for the existing unit block would see the complex demolished, making way for the two towers, standing 79.5 metres high, and 394 car parks over three-levels of basement car-parking.

Gold Coast locals who were against the project raised concern about the development’s height and density arguing that the towers would cause shadowing of recreational areas and the beach, while the Community Alliance said the development was inconsistent with council’s own Burleigh Heads Place Analysis study.

Nearby, Sydney-based Weiya Holdings has plans for a 14-storey building at the Old Burleigh Theatre Arcade at 64 Goodwin Terrace.

Weiya Holdings purchased the site for $18.5 million in August of 2019, with plans to keep the façade of the existing two-storey Burleigh theatre building.

Down the road, Brisbane-based developer Spyre Group was approved for its 18-storey apartment tower located at 112 The Esplanade in Burleigh.

Spyre Group, led by Andrew Malouf, secured the $16 million site from the eight owners of the existing 12-year old apartment building originally developed by Mimi Macpherson, sister of supermodel Elle, in 2003.

Nielson Properties is also behind a 50,000sq m office project at 205 North Quay in Brisbane CBD with Cbus Property.
