Gold Coast Mixed Use Development

Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia
Ridong Gold Coast
MBA International, Residential / Hotel
Competition concept
> 50 storeys

The proposed design for Ridong Gold Coast comprises approximately 800,000sq.ft of premium, luxury, and serviced apartments and a 5* hotel arranged around a central landscaped garden on a 1.2 hectare site which opens up directly onto the beach.

Designed to stand out and fit in at the same time, the development is designed to maximise value, create a green development that pushes the boundaries for sustainable high rise living, and ensure that energy costs and life cycle costs are kept to a minimum. Read more

The buildings are distributed around the perimeter of the site in order to create a public amenity in the heart of the scheme with a vibrant, welcoming and ’open’ urban character. All buildings are designed to maximise the benefits of the natural climate, facilitate wellbeing, healthy living and encourage the residents and visitors to minimise their environmental impact while providing high quality living spaces.

A 3-storey ‘skybeam’ with sensational views over the coastline, spans the void between two 50-storey high towers. The ‘skybeam’ development houses luxury apartments, a 5* hotel, serviced apartments and creates a distinctive and recognisable landmark on the skyline. Three shorter, 15-storey high, beachfront condos provide premium apartments with 180 degree views above a doughnut shaped podium containing restaurants, shops and a spa. All residential units are designed with generous wind-sheltered balconies to allow the most to be made of the great climate on the Gold Coast.
