  • 4 star hotel (173 rooms)
  • 1 floor of offices
  • Retail space at ground floor including transformation of Main Place laneway precinct
  • Pedestrian friendly streetscape is intended to transform the entire block, much like Oracle has done.

Thanks to Marty for news of this development.

THE wraps are off a planned $450 million project tipped to become a bustling gateway to Broadbeach for light rail users.

The transport-oriented development proposed by Gold Coast property veteran John Potter is set to transform the dated retail strip fronting the Gold Coast Highway into a vibrant space servicing locals and tourists alike.

The project will also transform the 'dead space' alleyway known as Main Place, sitting between the retail centre and the Phoenician building, into a Melbourne-style laneway featuring cosmopolitan dining and shopping.

The Main Place plan will comprise a tower of up to 50 storeys of residential apartments, a four-star hotel of 173 rooms and office space on the first floor.

While the ground level retail strip will deliver a new dining precinct, Mr Potter said Main Place would retain much of its existing tenancy mix of convenience outlets to service local residents.

Main Place will be alongside one of the busiest stations on the proposed light rail route and will feature an arbour walkway leading passengers to the Broadbeach strip from the tram stop.

One of the key milestones for the project will be Gold Coast City Council approval to extend the underground parking for Main Place beneath the existing service road fronting the centre.

The State Government has ticked off on the carpark, with the council to vote on it on Tuesday.

The parking bid would add about 90 public-access car spaces to the existing 51 and increase the footprint for the project.

Mr Potter said construction would disrupt on-street parking for six months during the two-year building program.

Very Gold Coast, it'll go well with those twin towers they built a few years back (the name escapes me, they were being built when I was there 4 years ago).

So its the same height as the taller Oracle. I'll change the thread title. The elevations I refered to are in Vol 5 Part 63 of the DA - here is a jpeg of them:

Not sure if I mentioned that this building got approval. No idea when construction is set to start though.
