The tower is called Epsilon.

Some new renders below (some earlier ones as well):

Same period, Epsilon starts in Jan. The Dorsett btw is 92% sold out.

BTW according to The Australian today it's mixed used (half hotel).

Another new render:

Gotta say, if you compare the height of the Dorsett to Epsilon in the last render, the Dorsett looks taller than the 167m we have it guesstimated at, I remember perheps said it's 175m, which seems about right.

I'll be very interested to see what their bridge to Pacific Fair will look like. A three-point bridge with an improved connection between Pacific Fair and the GLink Station would be handy *hint hint Star!*

167 metre or 179 metre cannot confirmed until now seem Dorsett Tower renders
More likely 174 metre if you seen top glass or whatever they’re plan
I would be like 164 metre rooftop with 10 metre features
If correct would be last floor top 160 metre 53 floor then ceiling 164 metre then roof
This sound about right if I wrong... that okay

Epsilon Tower is 66 floors not 63 floors
215 metre tall right then rooftop 209 metre similar to Circle on Cavill which 209 metre rooftop
66 floors would be confirmed because my friend text me today they’re plan get 41 floor south view however they did told my friend “this’ll be 66 floors for building”
However more likely first three floors would be Casino, Restaurants, etc etc
If you seen swimming pool rendering it’s actually fourth floor then start from 5 until 66 floors however they’re switching from hotel to resident ... one floor area swimming similar to Dorsett
Makings up 20 floors hotel with 40 floors with last floor Penthouse on top

The developer is the Destination Gold Coast Consortium, made up of Star Entertainment, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium. These same three members make up the Destination Brisbane Consortium, who are developing Queen's Wharf in Brisbane.

Aside from that, we don't have all that much detail on what is being built. I found some details about Tower 3 (Epsilon is Tower 4) from Hutchies, including that it was designed by DBI Design/Cottee Parker, so I would hazard a guess that they are behind Epsilon too.

Yes. It looks likely that they will be doing the whole project.

Big SOB


ASX-listed Star Entertainment Group has fast-tracked residential sales in Broadbeach, bringing forward construction of the second mixed-use tower at its Broadbeach Island masterplan.

The $500 million skyscraper will deliver 457 apartments over 63-storeys to market, with construction expected to commence in mid-2020.

The fast-tracked release will add to growing confidence in the Gold Coast high-rise residential market, which experienced an uptick in sales over the March quarter.

The Star Queensland managing director Geoff Hogg said the consortium has expedited sales due to demand for real estate on Broadbeach Island. The first residential tower, which kicked off construction last year, has clocked 92 per cent in sales to date.

“The sales success of the first tower and it being under construction gives a lot of people confidence about our masterplan and what we’re doing,” Hogg told The Urban Developer.

“Obviously the market has changed a lot, but until you start selling you’re never quite sure how the market has shifted and where it will come from.

“[But] off the back of tower one we’re confident there’s market demand there and we will know a little more about those trends in the near future.”

The $400 million, 53-storey first tower will deliver a 316-key Dorsett Hotel — the first of its kind in Australia — and 423 residential apartments.

Hogg’s confidence in the Gold Coast extends to the investor market, which he said was still strong.

“Because the pre-sales for one-bedroom apartments went so well, we feel like there may be 50 per cent — or even slightly higher — of sales to investors,” Hogg said.

“Obviously it’s hard for us to gauge until we find out who wants to participate in the letting pool.”

The Star-led Gold Coast Consortium is a joint venture with Far East Consortium and the Hong Kong-based Chow Tai Fook Enterprises. Each partner has a third equity share in both mixed-use towers.


▲ The state government-approved Broadbeach Island masterplan has seven towers in total, with two existing hotels the 600-room The Darling and the Star Grand, and five new towers yet to be completed.


The $2 billion-plus Broadbeach island is home to two existing hotels — the 600-room The Darling, which was opened ahead of the Commonwealth Games, and the recently refurbished Star Grand.

An operator for the 210-key hotel in the second tower will be named in the coming weeks, which Hogg says will be a new hotel brand not available on the Gold Coast.

“It will be a very exciting addition and the fourth hotel available on the island.”

In addition to the construction of the Dorsett Hotel tower and The Star Residences Gold Coast apartment tower, the Star Gold Coast masterplan includes The Darling and has approval for four more towers making it the largest integrated resort in the country.

The Star, Far East Consortium, Chow Tai Fook joint venture has more than $6 billion in development under way including Brisbane’s Queen’s Wharf and West Side Place in Melbourne.

The group is still working through an approval process for a $500 million Ritz-Carlton hotel in the Pyrmont-Darling Harbour precinct.
