The Star will continue rolling out its extensive $2b Master Plan for Queensland.

A fourth mixed-use hotel and residential option on The Star Gold Coast site at Broadbeach could begin to rise by as early as next year under a new announcement late on Friday from the entertainment giant.

The proposed 215-metre tower will be positioned just south of another new tower currently under construction which will house a mix of residential owners and guests of The Dorsett in its brand return to Australia, which is due to open in 2022. A managing brand for the latest tower has not been disclosed as yet, nor has an estimated completion and opening date.

The Star Entertainment Group says it will fast-track the latest tower as part of its recently approved Master Plan for the site, recently approved by the Queensland government. Plans include a five-star hotel mixed with residential ownership offerings, lagoon pools, a nightlife venue and further restaurants and bars beyond those already earmarked as part of previous announcements. These could include a fine food market, a café and wine bar along with additional new restaurants.

Pre-sales on residential apartments in the newest tower could open as early as next month.

Further, on completion of The Dorsett, The Star has revealed it will build a new dining precinct connecting The Star Grand with the Dorsett which will house several Asian eateries, one offering live seafood selection, a seafood grill house and a designer sweet bar.

The Star Entertainment Group CEO, Matt Bekier, said the group was committed to the Gold Coast and driving increased tourism benefits to the region.

“Together with our partners, Chow Tai Fook and Far East Consortium, we are delivering a world class global tourism and entertainment destination of which this region can be proud.

“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.

“Under the right conditions and circumstances, we will operate both properties in tandem as beacons for south-east Queensland, drawing interstate and international visitors to turbo-charge the tourism industry,” Bekier added.
