KOMUNE TO BE DEMOLISHED
COOLANGATTA’s famous Komune tower at the base of Greenmount Hill will be demolished and replaced after council ticked off a new luxury tower for the site.
Brisbane-based developer Spyre Group will push ahead with its plans to transform the site into Cala Dei, a boutique 12-storey beachfront tower that will feature a mix of two and threebedroom units across 31 apartments.
Spyre Group director Andrew Malouf said the company had received “significant” interest from prospective buyers before being released to the market.
“A major key to our success on the Gold Coast has been the ability to secure the best beachfront sites in unique and highly sought-after locations,” he said.
“Cala Dei’s design embraces the unique headland setting and pushes architectural boundaries to truly redefine coastal luxury living.”
It comes more than two years after the Planning and Environment Court rejected a Hotel Komune bid to build a 27-storey, five-star hotel at the base of Greenmount hill on Marine Pde.
It did not comply with either the 2003 or 2016 City Plans, the court ruled.
That proposed 100-suite hotel was to have 94 apartments, cafes and restaurants overlooking Greenmount Beach.
