The Star’s super tower hits 53 storeys

The Star’s super tower has hit 53 storeys, marking a new high point in the Gold Coast’s construction plan. The 178-metre building is worth $400m (US$294m) and will be home to The Star Residences apartments and Dorsett hotel.

The Gold Coast’s building site expands with another tower – a 63-storey one. For this project, The Star has partnered up with Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium.

Destination Gold Coast Consortium Project Director Jaime Cali commented: “We have been able to maintain targets by using local south-east Queensland and Australian manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible to reduce the risk of supply chain issues.”

Master Builders Queensland said they took some extra steps (such as stockpiling and hiring storage warehouses and security guards to keep them safe) to ensure they would meet the project timelines.

The new tower features 422 one and two-bedroom apartments, and more than 90% (393) have already sold. The first 21 floors are reserved for the 313-room Dorsett hotel, including a six-level podium for the hotel reception and lobby. Residents will be able to live at a casino integrated resort, which marks the first such type of construction design.

COO of The Star Gold Coast Jess Mellor said this project demonstrates the company’s commitment and contribution to the tourism resilience of the Gold Coast.

“We are proud to have been able to provide 1,500 jobs during construction as well as hundreds of supply chain opportunities for businesses, supporting economic stimulus in the city during such challenging times.

“Our second tower under construction will further support Queensland’s post-pandemic recovery.”

The next tower is expected to be completed in 2024, and around 80% out of the available apartments have already been sold.
