Southeast Asia Entertainment Hub in Surfers Paradise

A project billed as a new “entertainment hub for Southeast Asia” featuring 56- and 72-story towers with 700 apartments and 400 hotel suites has been approved by the Gold Coast City Council in Surfers Paradise, The Urban Developer reported. Sydney-based EG Funds Development is behind “Wanderlust,” designed by Elenberg Fraser and including a 4,325-m2 pool club with bookable cabanas geared toward international acts such as deejays. The location is in the heart of the Surfers Paradise entertainment and nightclub district between Orchid Avenue and Surfers Paradise Boulevard. The apartments will start on level three of the 72-story tower. The project also includes four levels of basement parking for nearly 500 vehicles.

Developers of Brisbane Office Tower Aim High

Charter Hall and Investa Commercial Property Fund (ICPF) intend to deliver a 40-story office building “of a standard not yet seen in the Brisbane market,” with a design by Blight Rayner featuring communal amenities, technological capability, natural light and sustainability, The Urban Developer reported. Following the lead of Melbourne and Sydney, Brisbane’s office market is burgeoning. Taking the form of a pair of adjacent structures, the design includes basement car parking, a rooftop recreation deck, multiple sky parks and 50,000 m2 of office space. If approved, construction is expected to start in 2019.

Partners China Property Group and Exhibition and Travel Group have joined forces as Century Group Aus to build three towers of up to 33 stories housing residences and a hotel on the old location of the demolished Melbourne convention center, The Urban Developer reported. Linking the Docklands and central business district (CBD), Flinders Bank will have 500 apartments, 167 hotel rooms and 2,100 m2 of retail, as well as a pedestrian precinct and plaza featuring public art. Karl Fender, founder of project architect Fender Katsilidis, said Flinders Bank will be part of an emerging “DNA” in Melbourne that centers on populating areas with people. Construction is set to start in stages in early 2019, with delivery in mid 2021.

Woods Bagot Plan Would Create a New Skyline in Perth

A development by Woods Bagot would create a new skyline between Perth and Fremantle, Australia, with 160,000 m2 across multiple towers, SkyRise Cities reported. Situated on 1.8 ha near a proposed transit hub, Applecross Central would contain more than 20,000 m2 of retail, 815 residences, 10,000 m2 of office space, a 170-room hotel, a senior care facility and a school. Also on the drawing boards is a community event plaza, with a library, childcare center and multipurpose areas. The heavily landscaped surface area would boast walkways and bike paths, while drivers would be accommodated in a “super basement.” Andrew Tang-Smith is the lead designer.
