DEVELOPERS from across the globe are expected to try and nab the last beachfront site at The Spit after the state government confirmed it was going on the market.

Deputy Premier and State Development Minister Steven Miles said expressions of interest opened on Thursday on a 1.62 hectare site with 52 metres of prime beach frontage just south of the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort.

Mr Miles labelled it a “golden opportunity”.

“Labelled the best beachfront resort accommodation site to come to market for the past two decades, it is expected to draw international interest,” Mr Miles told state parliament.

“Proposals to match the high-quality precinct envisioned in The Spit Master Plan will be eagerly anticipated and boost Queensland’s COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan.

Mr Miles said all proposals must need to adhere to The Spit’s planning regulations, including a maximum height of three storey’s or 15 metres.

“The regulations ensure all new developments integrate seamlessly with the landscape and respects The Spit’s much-loved natural values,” he said.

“The implementation of The Spit Master Plan is well underway with a raft of projects, supporting hundreds of jobs.

“Through the implementation of the master plan, we’re delivering something really special that will confirm The Spit as one of the glittering jewels in Gold Coast’s crown.”
