Jupiters’ lavish new tower, which is the first six-star hotel to be built on the Gold Coast in more than 15 years, has reached the halfway milestone.
The luxury development, which is well on track to be fully operational ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, promises to enhance the region’s reputation as a compelling destination for local and international tourists.
The Star Entertainment Group’s Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg said it was exciting to see the foundations laid, and the look and feel of the new six-star tower coming together.
“The site has been a hive of activity over the past few months, and has attracted a wealth of interest from our guests who have prime-position to watch history in the making,” said Mr Hogg.
The new bridge, which will form the main access point to the six-star tower, is also making its way across Tallebudgera Creek and is on track to meet the existing Gold Coast Highway and Elizabeth Avenue intersection later this year, creating a third access point to the island.
Probuild Managing Director Peter Ward said the procurement of highly skilled tradespeople was a strong focus for the project.
“It’s essential that every aspect of the new six-star tower is of an elevated standard so that’s been a huge consideration right from the start,” Mr Ward said.
When complete, the $345 million redevelopment will also see the refurbishment of the property’s almost 600 existing hotel rooms and an array of contemporary restaurants and bars.
