The Queensland government has approved four more towers for the Destination Gold Coast Consortium’s Broadbeach masterplan.

The Destination Gold Coast Consortium — a joint venture between Star Entertainment Group and Hong Kong-based partners Far East Consortium and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises will now undertake a 10-year construction phase to complete the master plan.

The newly added towers will create 3,000 new hotel rooms and will range in height between 52-74 storeys.

On completion, Star Gold Coast will be home to more than 50 bars and restaurants and employ 6,000 people in total.

“The masterplan in its entirety would see The Star Gold Coast boast more tourism accommodation than any other resort in Australia,” Star Entertainment Group chief executive Matt Bekier said.

“The 3,000 hotel rooms and apartments would also exceed what the world-renowned Marina Bay Sands in Singapore offers, and be on a scale to compare with the largest integrated resorts in Las Vegas.”
