The Star Entertainment Group has announced plans to fast-track the development of a fourth hotel for The Star Gold Coast in Broadbeach, Queensland.
The group plans to develop a 215-metre tower comprising a five-star hotel, lagoon pools, a nightlife venue, plus restaurants and bars.
The new hotel and apartments tower would complement the existing The Star Grand hotel, The Darling hotel and the Dorsett hotel, which is due for completion in 2022.
Works on the latest tower could commence in 2020 with pre-sales for apartments within the tower set to launch next month.
Matt Bekier, CEO and managing director at The Star Entertainment Group said the decision to fast-track the tower beyond the existing construction of the Dorsett hotel is the next step in delivering on the fully-approved masterplan for the property.
“This latest hotel tower will further progress the internationally-competitive resort facilities we are offering to domestic and international tourists, along with restaurants, bars, a nightclub, a luxury day spa and wellness centre, and outdoor spaces that the local Gold Coast community as well as visitors to the city can enjoy and frequent,” he said.
“If our masterplan is rolled out in full – and there is so much more we would like to deliver – The Star Gold Coast will be the equal of the finest integrated resorts in the world and complement our $3.6 billion project at Queen’s Wharf Brisbane.
“Under the right conditions and circumstances, we will operate both properties in tandem as beacons for south-east Queensland, drawing interstate and international visitors to turbo-charge the tourism industry.”
The Star has also unveiled plans for a new dining precinct to connect the existing The Star Grand hotel to the Dorsett hotel once the latter is completed.
The restaurant “avenue” plans include a steak and seafood grill house, a designer sweet bar, plus three Asian-inspired restaurants – one with live seafood and private dining facilities.
