NSW-based Cienna Group is planning an 88 storey/38 storey two-tower resort for Southport’s Chinatown.
The Q1, which will soon mark 10 years as the southern hemisphere’s tallest hotel/residential building, is just 78 levels.
A development application has been made to the Gold Coast City Council for the towers on Cienna’s 4300m² site is between Young, Nerang and Garden streets where the old Regent Theatre cinema stood until 1989. It has been vacant ever since and, as it falls within the Southport Priority Development Area, the DA approval is seen as a formality.
Plans call for a mix of retail and commercial spaces on the podium level with the towers to contain residential accommodation.
Project manager Gavin Baxter, from GMP Management, said, “Cienna has been specifically designed to activate Chinatown with pedestrian connectivity and provide vibrant active street and laneway experiences.”
