It's good to see the name being retained! I hope there will continue to be a pub in there to match the name. Something swanky and modern would be pretty cool to see!

Yeah but it's not really the same building so they shouldn't use the same name, I think something like 'Son of the Beach Hotel' would be more appropriate.

I don't see anything wrong with using the name, especially as it's such a generic name. If it was called the "Pig & Whistle" or something similar, you wouldn't reuse it, but something like the "Broadbeach Tavern" or the "Beach Hotel" it's fine IMO. Besides, the word hotel will be relevant to the new building as well.

New high-rise for Broadie sets precedent
Alister Thomson | November 24th, 2011

A PROPOSAL for a new high-rise apartment building at Broadbeach is about to set a precedent for the Gold Coast by including affordable housing units for the first time.

The Gold Coast City Council's planning committee this week recommended the council approve an application from developer John Fish to redevelop the Beach Hotel site opposite Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast Highway into a 35-storey high rise.

The plans, submitted by Mr Fish's company Rothmont Projects, would include 198 units, 30 of which would be set aside as affordable housing units.

Town planner David Ransom, of Humphreys Reynolds Perkins Gold Coast, said the rents of the affordable units would be subsidised through the Federal Government's National Affordability Rental Scheme.

They would be offered to investors on the condition they take the government subsidy and rent them out at below the market rate.

"This is the first time it has been built into a high-rise building like this," Mr Ransom said.

The units would be located over the first five floors.

"The reason he's (Mr Fish) doing it is as a good corporate citizen that would be a good thing for him to do."

He said it was also an incentive for the council to approve the project.

Mr Ransom said it was likely the units would be rented to professionals such as police officers and teachers who could not afford the high rents in the area.

Mr Fish did not return calls.

More on this story in today's Gold Coast Bulletin.

They should offer a few apartments on the higher levels at least.
