ROBINA Land Corporation and Robina Projects Australia will start construction on their $23 million Campus Alpha development this month.
Alpha is the debut project in the developer’s planned eco-sustainable, campus-style office precinct, Campus Crescent. The project will be built on a three-hectare CBD-Robina landholding fronting Investigator Drive, opposite Robina train station and hospital.
Campus Alpha will occupy a 3500sqm site, and the building’s three levels will each have 1500sqm floorplates, providing around 4500sqm of usable floorspace, with lift access to all floors, a single-level basement car park and on-grade parking.
Robina Projects Australia general manager Hylton Slater, says Campus Alpha will set the tone for the Campus Crescent precinct which would provide high-quality, functional spaces in buildings with exceptional environmental credentials. The building will set a benchmark for Campus Crescent with a four-star rating under the Green Building Council of Australia’s rating system.
“Robina Projects Australia receives extensive ongoing inquiry for office space that points to CBD-Robina being widely recognised as the Gold Coast’s premier business address,” says Slater.
“The Campus Crescent precinct aims to meet the needs of enterprises that want quality modern office space at CBD-Robina in a somewhat different format.
“Robina Projects Australia incorporates environment-sustaining design features in all its developments and Campus Crescent buildings will all be rated under the Green Building Council of Australia’s rating system, as will all future projects.”
In July, the Robina Land Corporation made an initial release of sites at a new precinct, the M1 Business Park, a 4.2-hectare estate where businesses can develop purpose-designed facilities. In May, it unveiled plans for a business hub on 10ha at the junction of Christine Avenue and Scottsdale Drive that will will include dining, retail, commercial and showroom components.
Last year, Robina Projects Australia and the Robina Land Corporation, completed the six-level office building HQ@ Robina and the Easy T Centre. Opposite the Easy T Centre on Scottsdale Drive is Sidewalk on Scottsdale, a mixed-use development with 13 ground-level retail and commercial spaces topped by two levels of apartments.
The two companies are also developing an extension to the Easy T Centre on behalf of NSW interests which bought the property late last year. Other projects include the four-level A-grade office building, Eastside, and One-6ixty, a central CBD-Robina boutique waterfront building with ground-level restaurant space and two levels of office space.
The Gold Coast City Council has also given RLC the green light to build an $80million, 16 storey, commercial office building, The Rocket, on a prime site in the heart of CBD-Robina.
Potter gold at Southport
THE Potter Group has unveiled plans to build a $75 million dollar health facility following the acquisition of one of the few remaining development sites within the Southport medical precinct.
The developer purchased the 3787 square metre vacant site on Queen Street, opposite Allamanda Private Hospital and the Gold Coast Hospital, for an undisclosed amount.
Marketing Agent Lachlan Harris, of Ray White Commercial Gold Coast, negotiated the sale of the landmark site, which is now likely to be integrated into medical suites, residential and short-stay accommodation, and retail.
The five-title property has been held since 1999 by Southport neurologist, Dr John Corbett, who bought the investment site for $1.25 million.
