The Queensland government has launched a parcel of development-ready land within the 200-hectare Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct at Southport.
Development of the 9.5 hectares, marketed as “Lumina”, will be a commercial cluster based within the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct, the site of the athletes’ village used for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Development of the 9.5-hectare site, dedicated to health and technology-related business, will take place over the next 10-to-15 years.
As landowner and master developer, Economic Development Queensland is facilitating its development.
The Lumina masterplan comprises for up to 200,000sq m of internal space across 16 development sites.
Next year Griffith University will begin construction on its $80 million Advanced Design Manufacturing and Prototyping (ADaPT) facility in the 200-hectare precinct.
9.5 hectares of state-owned land within the health and knowledge precinct will be marketed as ‘Lumina’.
The Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct is a long-term project with $5 billion in recent infrastructure, expected to be completed by 2030.
Minister for State Development Cameron Dick said the precinct would support more than 12,000 jobs and generate around $1.4 billion for the state’s economy when complete.
Lumina businesses and enterprises will join 30,000 people already working, living and studying across the precinct, including those at Griffith University, Gold Coast University Hospital, Gold Coast Private Hospital, Southport Sharks, COHORT and residential and retail community, Smith Collective.
