Multi-Million Dollar Makeover for Royal Pines Marina
Posted on 24 May 2019
The Royal Pines Marina in the Gold Coast is set for a revamp. The marina, once vibrant in the 1980s and 1990s, has been subject to a multi-million-dollar transformation with the aim of boosting tourism in the area. Works were halted for some time due to regulations enacted in the late ‘80s which enforced tight restrictions around amenity extensions to the 110-apartment development. These have since been overturned by the government.
North-facing, waterfront apartments overlooking the marina have recently been completed by developer Sunland. The complex also boasts an impressive view of the PGA Championship golf course and the Nerang river.
Minister for state development, Cameron Dick, hopes to see the changes to the scheme pave the way for diversification within the precinct,
“These proposed uses reflect the changing needs of the resort and its residents and will allow commercial uses for the area that are not significantly different to existing uses.”
“When the Act was written in the 1980s, the existing planning, titling and body corporate management legislation could not facilitate a large-scale mixed-use resort development like Royal Pines Resort.”
Facilities including a child care centre, restaurants and commercial spaces will soon be put forward for consideration.
