The Queensland State Government has announced that a new $93.6 Million Village Centre South development proposal will be created at the Spit, Main Beach, Gold Coast.
Meaghan Scanlon, Member for Gaven outlined that the Village Centre South project was one of the new development sites, the first to be released in decades on The Spit.
“As we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, building infrastructure and partnering with the private sector is essential,” Ms Scanlon said.
“This project will provide a $94 million injection into the economy, create jobs in construction and ongoing hospitality and operational jobs.”

– 47 Apartments
– Retail / Restaurants
– Open Space
– 52 Berth Marina
– 3 Superyacht Berths
“The Village Centre South is urban in character with buildings predominating in a structured landscape. The Village Centre South has buildings that associate with the dynamic ocean and still Broadwater. Buildings are a maximum height of three storeys and 15 metres.
Ground floor levels of buildings have a mix of uses that provide activity at the level of the street and boardwalk. Frontages to the plaza, Seaworld Drive and boardwalk have continuous awnings providing protection from the weather. The beach club is a small scale lightweight structure with a maximum height of one storey. Its design minimises impacts on the dune system and allows for public access and views to be maintained” – The Spit Master Plan (p78)
Steven Miles, Deputy Premier and State Development Minister outlines the proposed luxury development forms part of the Spit Master Plan and has received expressions of interest to complete the Village Centre South project.
“After a rigorous process, the successful project is a $93.6 million development, including 47 luxury apartments, retail and public spaces”.
“The proposal also includes a 52-berth marina that includes three superyacht berths”.
“Gordon Corporation Pty Ltd, the successful proponent, estimates the project will support more than 300 jobs during its two-year construction phase and more than 100 jobs when fully operating”.
“The two-stage expression of interest process was undertaken to ensure the successful proponent has the capability to deliver the project and that The Spit will continue to be somewhere special”.
“Importantly, it will adhere to a maximum of three stories or 15 meters in height”.
“We will be working with the proponent and the City of Gold Coast to ensure that this proposal adheres to the City of Gold Coast Planning Scheme, is consistent with the master plan and the preservation of The Spit’s natural values”.
“This project will support economic recovery on the Gold Coast”.
“There is so much work underway, soon to begin or completed at the Spit,” he said.
“This includes the shared pathway between Seaworld and Doug Jennings Park, Moondarewa Spit foreshore, the Seaway Promenade and pontoon and jetty in Marine Stadium,” Mr Miles said.
Tim Gordon, Director of Gordon Corporation outlines his business is a Queensland company with over 30 years’ experience in delivering residential, commercial, and mixed-use projects.
“As a Gold Coast-based company, we are very excited about the prospect of working with the State Government to realise our proposed project, being the first new development in many years on The Spit,” Mr Gordon said.
Mr Miles said the Village Centre South project is anticipated to complement The Spit’s offering to tourists and locals alike.
