The Queensland Government has opened the second expression of interest (EOI) process for development sites on the Gold Coast Spit.
Queensland State Development Minister Cameron Dick said opening up further development opportunities in the Village Centre North precinct for long-term lease would enable the vision of the master plan to be realised.
“Releasing more development opportunities is an exciting part of The Spit master plan and will unlock thousands of job opportunities on the Gold Coast,” Dick said.
“My department has already fielded approaches from a number of proponents eager to deliver on the potential of these sites.
“This demonstrates the level of interest in these sites and their potential to support projects which will generate jobs for Gold Coasters.

- Tenders to be called for Gold Coast construction works
- Queensland to open Gold Coast land for development
Any development on the site will have a maximum height limit of three storeys and 15 metres.
The EOI campaign will remain open until 2 April 2020 and will be handled by CBRE Gold Coast.
CBRE Hotels National Director Wayne Bunz said it’s one of the most exciting waterfront resort and hospitality development opportunities in Australia.
“It is exceptional to find a 4.42-hectare development site with an adjoining 1.97-hectare seabed lease in such an iconic tourism destination,” Bunz said.
“This precinct will complement the adjacent high-quality developments recognising Indigenous cultural connections and reinforcing the Gold Coast’s positioning as Australia’s premier tourism destination.”
Dick said The Spit master plan detailed a strong vision for how the area could be developed, however if there was a striking idea put forward that was consistent with the plan, it would be considered.
The EOI release follows the campaign for the 9858-square-metre-site with a marina allotment in the Village Centre South precinct, adjacent to Mariner’s Cove Marina.
There have been more than 120 registrations on QTenders since the EOI opened on 28 January 2020. EOI are due to close on 5 March for this project.
