The City of Gold Coast has revealed preliminary designs for a large, multi-purpose “civic hub” in Coomera.
The proposal calls for an “all-in-one” building on a site next to a Westfield shopping centre and close to Coomera Train Station. It would contain a library, co-working spaces for non-profit organizations, a theatre, a customer service centre, and offices for councillors.
The centre is intended to cater to a predicted population of more than 200,000 by 2041 – more than double the current population in northern Gold Coast. The design will also allow for the expansion of council services.
In response to a query from ArchitectureAU, the council declined to name the architect involved in producing the preliminary design, saying “Much of the details around the project, including design and funding, are commercial in confidence.”
