A twin-tower residential and hotel project for a riverfront Surfers Paradise site has been approved by the Gold Coast City Council. The site, located at 2-20 River Terrace in June 2017, was acquired by Chinese developer Sunnyland Group.
Two towers of 34 and 46 stories, comprising 503 apartments and 280 short-term hotel suites between the two of them, were approved. The project is to be known as ‘River Terrace’, and has been designed by Plus Architecture.
The two towers have a ‘twisted’ design, meaning they have views of Nerang River, Gold Coast Hinterland, and the ocean. This will be a design element that is unique in Surfers Paradise, and in our opinion, will really add some creativity to the area.
It will be next to the already approved Orion Towers, which, at 103-stories, will be the tallest building in the southern hemisphere once completed. Another nearby development is Morris Property Group’s proposed nine-storey building (yet to be named) that would consist of 80 dwellings and 160 rooms and appeal to the short-term accommodation market. This is planned to be built at 18 Remembrance Drive.
We will, of course, review the project in full as soon as it is ready for sale.
