As far as ambitious companies go not many can keep up with The Star Entertainment Group.
The company has just announced that it will fast-track the development of a fourth hotel in the multi-billion-dollar transformation of The Star Gold Coast in Broadbeach.
The fourth hotel will be 215 metres tall, boast a five-star rating, and is expected incorporate lagoon pools, a nightlife venue, restaurants, and bars.
The tower will be positioned south of the Dorsett hotel and apartments that are currently being constructed.
"We are committed to the Gold Coast, committed to Queensland, committed to driving increased tourism and significant economic benefits for this State," says CEO and MD of Star Matt Bekier.
Bekier says the new hotel, to be developed in partnership with Chow Tai Fook and Far East Consortium, will assist in making the Gold Coast a true tourist icon in Queensland.
"This latest hotel tower will further progress the internationally-competitive resort facilities we are offering to domestic and international tourists, along with restaurants, bars, a nightclub, a luxury day spa and wellness centre, and outdoor spaces that the local Gold Coast community as well as visitors to the city can enjoy and frequent," says Bekier.
The announcement of plans to fast-track the construction of this fourth hotel is part of The Star's ambitious master plan announced in November 2018.
At completion of the master plan, The Star Entertainment Group will have invested close to $9 billion in South East Queensland.
"If our masterplan is rolled out in full and there is so much more we would like to deliver The Star Gold Coast will be the equal of the finest integrated resorts in the world and complement our $3.6 billion project at Queen's Wharf Brisbane," says Bekier.
The Star has today also unveiled plans for a new dining precinct to connect the existing The Star Grand hotel, restaurant and gaming complex to the Dorsett hotel and apartments tower once the latter is completed.
The restaurant "avenue" plans include a steak and seafood grill house, a designer sweet bar, plus three Asian-inspired restaurants one with live seafood and private dining facilities.
