The Parklands masterplan endeavors to complete the tripartite catalyst of Health, Knowledge and Industry through the delivery of a lifestyle focused, transit facilitated place for living, working and learning.
The ‘Parklands’ project involves the masterplanning, design and delivery of the 29.4 ha Gold Coast Parklands site to accommodate up to 6500 athletes and team officials during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ (GC2018) as the Commonwealth Games Village (CGV). The CGV forms the important catalyst for the redevelopment of this site and will leave the major legacy of GC2018—a vibrant, inclusive and connected urban mixed use community as the key stage of the evolving Gold Coast Health & Knowledge Precinct.
Designed as a joint venture between Archipelago, Arkhefield and ARM Architecture for Grocon, the development features over 1200 dwellings, with a mix of apartments and townhouses interspersed with green and landscaped spaces, and a 5,840m2 retail precinct centred around a “village heart”. Overall the masterplan balances seven hectares of residential and retail precincts with seven hectares of parklands and open space.
Archipelago is one of three architects that make the AAA design team, who are designing, documenting and delivering Parklands for Grocon and the key stakeholders.
