Two Queensland-based developers have teamed up to deliver a $1.5 billion private hospital and health precinct in the northern Gold Coast, with a catchment area of 160,000 people who would otherwise need to go to Southport for urgent care.
Joint venture partners Keylin and Kinstone Group have lodged a development application with the Gold Coast City Council to transform its 47.7-hectare Foxwell Coomera site into a 400-bed 60,000sqm hospital.
The parcel of land, which is located adjacent to Westfield Coomera and Dreamworld, has direct access to the M1 motorway and is 350 metres from Coomera Train Station.
The developers confirmed more plans would be lodged this week as part of the project, including a business precinct with a 3,600sqm commercial building, car wash, service station and three retail tenancies.
Additional plans have also been lodged for the future thoroughfare to connect Coomera Sporting Hub and the Coomera Train Station, which would enable vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians to bypass Whitewater Way.
Keylin managing director Louis Cheung said preferred contractors have been shortlisted for the delivery of the state-of-the-art hospital.
“We have engaged with Australia’s leading architects and hospital advisory firms to design a master plan that deliver’s the region’s first comprehensive private hospital, with future stages to include campus-style allied health care, outpatient facilities, imaging, rehabilitation, and wellness services,” Cheung said.
“We are also advancing concepts to support the inclusion of a swim school, childcare facilities, and family-focused recreation services with a strong focus on lifestyle and wellbeing.
“Foxwell Coomera offers a unique opportunity to embed itself as a connected community of integrated lifestyle, health, wellness, and business experiences.”
During the last seven years, the Northern Gold Coast has experienced a 60 per cent population increase. According to research by urban planning consulting firm Urbis, the region currently has no hospitals or day surgeries to cater to a population of more than 160,000 people.
In stark contrast, the Gold Coast South region has a total of six hospitals and day surgeries to accommodate 163,270 people.
Kinstone Group director Tommy Hung said the joint venture is on track to deliver a fully serviced location for the future private hospital by December this year.
“The proposed private hospital complements the state government’s plans to deliver the Northern Gold Coast’s first public hospital in Coomera, one of the fastest-growing regions in Australia,” Hung said.
“The scale of Foxwell Coomera, and its proximity to Coomera Train Station and the M1, presents an opportunity explore how health and wellness can coexist with future-focused commercial and residential spaces, as part of a truly connected community.
Foxwell Coomera is the second joint venture between Keylin and Kinstone Group and comes after the duo revealed they are also delivering a $650 million residential community known as Serenity 4212 in Helensvale.
The 65-hectare project is bounded by Lake Serenity and Coombabah and Saltwater Creeks and will feature a mini marina precinct with retail and dining options as well as mixed-density townhouses and apartments.
