Former hospital site could make for exciting new development

By Larry Malan

There's always something happening in Broadbeach and the Gold Coast. If it's not some kind of fantastic event, it's a new piece of development that's set to change the very landscape of the area. 

You just have to look at the new site in Southport that's being put up for sale currently. A prime piece of Gold Coast real estate, the former hospital site could be the very thing that revitalises central Southport. 

The Queensland government is currently inviting expressions of interest for its sale, with Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning Jeff Seeney noting its potential for a variety of purposes. 

"Our government is determined to make the best use of state land, whether it be offering land to community groups for charitable purposes or to private parties with the financial capacity to revitalise sites," he said in a September 24 release. 

"I anticipate this opportunity will attract strong competition from the private sector and generate new construction jobs for the Gold Coast."

The development would capitalise on the many infrastructure projects currently underway throughout the area, including the Gold Coast Rapid Transit system and the Gold Coast University hospital. With so many plans on the horizon, those considering diving in and purchasing property may not want to keep biding their time too much longer.
