Seal Media Group, Australia

City leaders say the project, worth several hundred million dollars and earmarked for a 7ha site next to Robina Town Centre, cannot repeat the “failures” of the Commonwealth Games at Southport – and must be useful for post-2032 residents.20,000 UNITS, 104 TOWERS: MASSIVE DEVELOPMENT WAVE HEADING FOR COAST SUBURBSGOLD COAST COSTCO PLANS HIT STUMBLING BLOCKRobina councillor Hermann Vorster has written to Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk in the wake of southeast Queensland winning the Olympics, warning failure “was not an option”.“People have plainly been disappointed by the outcomes at Southport and there will be intense interest in making sure any Games village pays a proper social dividend,” he said.
