The Star Entertainment Group has today announced plans to fast-track development of a fourth hotel in the multi-billion-dollar investment transforming The Star Gold Coast at Broadbeach.
A five-star hotel, lagoon pools, a nightlife venue, plus additional restaurants and bars are key attractions of a proposed 215-metre tower to be positioned south of the Dorsett hotel and apartments development currently under construction.
Works on the latest tower could begin in 2020. The new five-star hotel at The Star Gold Coast would complement the existing The Star Grand hotel, The Darling hotel and the first Dorsett hotel in Australia, which is due for completion in 2022.
“We are committed to the Gold Coast, committed to Queensland, committed to driving increased tourism and significant economic benefits for this State,” said Matt Bekier, CEO and managing director, The Star Entertainment Group.
“Together with our partners, Chow Tai Fook and Far East Consortium, we are delivering a world-class global tourism and entertainment destination of which this region can be proud.
“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, restaurant and gaming complex to the Dorsett hotel and apartments tower 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.
Other inclusions could feature a café and wine bar, and a fine food market, as well as a range of new restaurant and dining experiences.
