Sky homes and urban parkland – a new ‘green heart’ for surfers paradise
Marchese + Partners design for ‘evo’ has been formally submitted as an Expression of Interest to the Gold Coast City Council. The $850 million proposal was prepared for Portberg Properties and includes two residential towers (101-storeys and 70-storeys) set amongst a 7000m2 public park. When constructed the e1 tower will eclipse Q1, currently the tallest building on the Gold Coast. The development is made up of two towers that have an organic form – e1 and e2. e1 is a 101 storey residential tower, it penetrates the ground to allow a cascade of water to stream into the new transit centre and retail level below. At its peak a revolving restaurant is planned to give unobstructed views of the Gold Coast. e2 is a 70 storey tower twisting and curving out of the landscape. Both towers feature sky gardens that grow within the sculptured form of the buildings. The towers sprout from the substantial urban parkland proposed for the ground level of the site which will become the new ‘green heart’ of Surfers Paradise
