Situated on a prime beachfront position in Surfers Paradise, a hot tourist area in Brisbane, the Aquis Pacific Point project is slated to be the first six-star beachfront hotel in Australia.
The 580-room structure will target a new generation of high-end travelers who have the option of staying in luxury hotel rooms, deluxe suites and large penthouses within the $440 million development. Once they are all settled in, they can enjoy other comforts such as restaurants and bars, a rooftop street-style food market, swimming pools, karaoke room, and outdoor cinema peppered throughout the hotel’s 48 stories.
Delivering expansive views from the Pacific Ocean to the Gold Coast Hinterland, the design of the building thoughtfully maintains the adjacent building’s view corridor to the ocean. Set within a triangular layout, the tower’s exterior is characterized by a glazed façade with gold banding that defines the outside details and extends up to the crown of the tower, which houses a rooftop bar, leisure lounge and swimming pool.
Additionally, its three-level glass atrium, located at the entry level, will house a $2.5 million custom art installation created by celebrated international artist Wolfgang Buttress. The curated and integrated art approach was designed to be a feature piece that will draw guests into the lobby space.
Construction for the project is expected to start in 2018.
