Gold Coast City council has authorised plans for a new Coomera Civic Hub development project on the northern Gold Coast to progress.
The three level building is described as the “city’s first regional integrated community facility”, with the proposed development to be built on land adjoining the Westfield Coomera.
A spokesperson for the Gold Coast City council wouldn't confirm costs of the project, and said that the “city is continuing to negotiate the commercial terms of the arrangement”.
“Much of the details around the project, including design and funding, are commercial in confidence,” the spokesperson said.
“Once agreed, appropriate contractual arrangements would be executed and the detailed design, approvals and construction then undertaken [with] a funding plan to be submitted to council.”
Described as a “one-stop-shop” facility at Coomera Town Centre, the preliminary design includes a councillor’s office, state-of-the-art library, multi-purpose community centre, youth hub, co-working space for not-for-profits, auditorium and a customer service centre.
The six-level “Home of the Arts” HOTA gallery has reached its topping out milestone after kicking off construction in April last year.
The $60.5 million gallery, delivered by construction company Hansen Yuncken, is the tallest building structure Gold Coast City has undertaken, located near Surfers Paradise.
Representatives from City of Gold Coast, HOTA, ARM Architecture and builder Hansen Yuncken trowelled the last pour of concrete atop the building to mark the completion of the project's structural phase.
