Gold Coast casino to be ‘bigger than Queens Wharf’

Amy Remeikis reports in the Brisbane Times (16.5.16) on a proposal for an expanded resort development on the Jupiters casino site at Broadbeach. The plan is one of a number of development proposals that are prompting negative responses from many Gold Coast residents.

‘A casino resort development bigger than the planned Queen’s Wharf in Brisbane has been planned for the existing Gold Coast Jupiters site, with Star announcing plans for a further four additional towers as part of its master plan.

‘While only a $345 million refurbishment and new $500 million 200 metre tower stand as concrete plans, Star Entertainment Group managing director Matt Bekier said the company was planning to expand the resort to where it was bigger than the six block planned development in Brisbane’s CBD that Star is also building.

‘Mr Bekier said if economic conditions were right – and he believed they were – there would be no reason not to look at moving forward with an additional four towers on Broadbeach Island.’
