The Star Gold Coast is showing no signs of slowing down its redevelopment ambitions, announcing another five new food and beverage experiences are set to open before the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
A new Sports Bar, cafeteria-style eatery and a revitalised Chinese restaurant are part of the next phase of the property’s redevelopment.
The Star Gold Coast says it hopes to develop the South-East region’s hottest destination for all things sport with its new Sports Bar.
The venue will feature a large LED super screen broadcasting all of the country’s favourite sporting events.
Additional television screens will be fitted throughout the venue to create a multi-screen viewing experience, showcasing more local, national and international sporting events than any other venue in Queensland.
Directly adjacent to the Sports Bar will be cafeteria-style eatery bite which is set to become The Star’s new Food Quarter.
In addition, the next phase of redevelopments will see the existing building connect to the new luxury six-star tower nearing completion at the front of the development. The new project is designed in partnership with architectural firm Brand and Slater.
The Star Entertainment Group Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg says the property was approaching an exciting phase of its evolution.
He says the new offerings serve to boost The Star’s reputation as the city’s ultimate dining and entertainment destination.
“Investing in our culinary offering and creating exciting new food and beverage experiences is a key focus of our transformation,” says Hogg.
“Through our investment here on the Gold Coast we have opened up the existing property to celebrate our fantastic coastal lifestyle and created a breadth of experiences that are reflective of our city’s vibrant personality.
“The next phase of our transformation will continue this approach by utilising the connection between the two buildings to provide guests with direct access to an outdoor terrace that takes full advantage of our fantastic sub-tropical climate.”
Meanwhile, Chinese restaurant Zen will close to undergo a makeover and The Star’s J Bar will continue to trade until late July before closing for refurbishments.
Cafeteria-style eatery bite will close from September and is expected to unveil its new look and name ahead of the festive season, while the new Sports Bar will open in early 2018.
The latest announcement forms part of The Star Gold Coast’s current transformation taking in the refurbishment of the existing property and construction of a six-star tower ahead of the Commonwealth Games.
Pending successful apartment presales, preparatory works for an additional hotel and apartment tower on Broadbeach Island are expected to commence over the coming 12 months as part of a joint venture with Hong Kong based partners Chow Tai Fook and Far East Consortium.
Together, the projects take the property’s total transformation to a combined investment worth up to $850 million.
