JEWEL REVEALS EVENT PLANS
THE Gold Coast’s biggest infrastructure project in decades, The Jewel, is set to transform the city’s event and accommodation offerings.
With a prime beachfront location, the $1 billion complex will feature three towers inspired by the quartz crystals discovered in the region, as well as exclusive residences and a five-star luxury hotel.
Project owners, Yuhu Group Australia, are behind the venture and will retain ownership of the Jewel’s hotel, ballroom and conference facilities.
“Our aim is to provide premium spaces where our residents, hotel guests and visitors will thoroughly enjoy spending their time,” said Yuhu Group director, Jimmy Huang.
“We want the Jewel to be a major community asset and the ballroom and other public spaces, including bars, dining options and retail offerings will all help underpin this.”
Located at the edge of the beachfront, the 700m2 Jewel ballroom will cater for up to 800 people, featuring a threestorey ceiling height and a separate smaller function room.
Huang also said the Jewel ballroom would be an “amazing space” that would set a new standard on the Gold Coast.
“It will be a centrepiece of the Jewel with the grand scale to cater for significant events in a wonderful location overlooking the ocean,” he said.
The complex will also incorporate a 633m2 business centre with five meeting rooms of varying sizes and equipment to cater for business needs.
Post business, guests can enjoy the beach-facing outdoor resort pool and swim-up bar; all-day dining hall with a range of cuisine within clear view of the water; outdoor dining, seating and lounge areas with lush pool-side gardens; a lobby bar and feature bar with an area of 450m2; plus an indoor pool & gym, health and wellness centre; and retail spaces.
A community celebration is planned for Aug 2018 to mark the Jewel towers reaching their max height.
Project completion is planned by mid 2019.
