The redevelopment of Parklands is one of the most significant urban renewal projects ever undertaken on the Gold Coast. The masterplan incorporates seven hectares of residential and retail precincts and seven hectares of parklands and open space. Grocon’s vision for the $550 million masterplanned development features 1,252 dwellings with a mix of apartments and townhouses, a 5,840m2 retail precinct, green and landscaped spaces built around a ‘Village Heart’. Strategically located on prime real estate within the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct, three kilometres from Southport CBD and five kilometres from Surfers Paradise.
Quadric recently completed a renewal of 399 apartments from Commonwealth Games Athlete Village for transition of the Parklands Project to residential community. The works involved electrical, plumbing, fire services, walls, ceilings, painting, floor finishes, joinery, and appliances. The scale of such an undertaking over a short 3 month period meant that programming and quality control became a key control factor.
Indigenous participation is a key focus for Grocon and Quadric and we are proud to report that Indigenous employment targets were exceeded by 200%.
We are pleased to have been involved in such a momentous occasion in the history of the Gold Coast, and look forward to seeing the entire development come to life over the next few months and years.
