The Queensland State Government has approved The Star Entertainment Group’s Gold Coast plan to build four hotel and apartment towers with 3,000 rooms.
“The masterplan in its entirety would see The Star Gold Coast boast more tourism accommodation than any other resort in Australia,” said Matt Bekier, managing director and CEO, The Star Entertainment Group.
“The 3,000 hotel rooms and apartments would also exceed what the world-renowned Marina Bay Sands in Singapore offers, and be on a scale to compare with the largest integrated resorts in Las Vegas.”
The $2 billion expansion will include four additional towers with more hotels, new signature restaurant and bar precincts.
Tourism Australia welcomed the approval of The Star’s plans.
“Congratulations to The Star on this approval. I’ve been impressed with the quality of its tourism developments in Sydney, the Gold Coast and with what’s to come at Queen’s Wharf Brisbane. The Star’s commitment to quality, and to embracing the ‘quintessential Queensland experience’ and local spirit in what it does, and at the scale that is proposed, has no equal,” said Bob East, chair, Tourism Australia.
