South Broadbeach TOD
Quintero Pty Ltd
South Broadbeach, Queensland
This residential development is located in South Broadbeach in an emerging area adjoining the Light Rail Broadbeach South Terminus.
The corner site on the Gold Coast Highway is one of the few available development opportunities in this potential Transit oriented precinct, and the proposed development will take advantage of the transport amenity and convenience offered by the nearby light rail and bus interchange.
Further, the site is within convenient walking distance of Pacific Fair, a major regional retail centre, presently under extensive renovation and expansion, and of course beach front amenity.
The proposal offers a combination of short term accommodation and long term – residential – accommodation. The built form clearly articulates the two uses, with short term accommodation located in the 4 level podium and permanent residential apartments in the tower over.
There is good consideration to the creation of an active and inviting ground plane / public edge; with sophisticated landscape to corner coffee shop/restaurant indoor/outdoor dining spaces.
Importantly, the architectural built form is bold, innovative and dramatic.
