“Unique, Attractive” Addition for Surfers Paradise
Surfers Paradise on Australia’s Gold Coast is set to get an 89-story, 304-m-tall addition described by the Gold Coast city architect as “unique and attractive,” The Urban Developer reported. Developed by Forise Holdings of China, The Spirit will house approximately 480 apartments, more than that of the architectural landmark Q1 (which, at 322 m, is still taller). The bottom three floors are to house a mix of retail and entertainment. The local council unanimously approved The Spirit, which is undulating yet slender, after being advised it will fit in perfectly with the Gold Coast’s lofty skyline. DBI Design Pty. Ltd. is behind the architecture.
