GemLife Gold Coast
Environmental excellence underpins GemLife’s flagship development on the Gold Coast with the over-55’s lifestyle resort achieving certification in five out of six elements under the Institutes EnviroDevelopment program.
GemLife Gold Coast is the company’s first development to be put forward for the assessment process.
The $200 million GemLife Gold Coast development is set on a 46-hectare elevated site in Pimpama capturing Surfers’ skyline and mountain views. It will ultimately comprise 365 homes, delivered in stages over more than three years, along with fitness, wellness, relaxation, and recreation amenities designed for today’s increasingly active and healthy over-50s.
GemLife Director and CEO Adrian Puljich said that with GemLife Gold Coast earmarked to benchmark innovative sustainability practices across the company and within the broader sector, certification by EnviroDevelopment provided an important first step towards achieving this goal.
“EnviroDevelop certification recognises projects that achieve exceptional sustainability outcomes and provides a point of difference in a competitive market,” Adrian said.
“Certification is designed to assess project initiatives across six areas; ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water, and community. Given this is our first-ever assessment, we are extremely proud to have met five of those,” he said.
He added that it was GemLife’s goal to have a positive environmental and social impact by taking a proactive approach to sustainability.
“At a fundamental level, it is GemLife’s mission to achieve a net-positive impact on the community and what we create. GemLife Gold Coast will be where we showcase this, taking our sustainability practices and innovations to the next level,” he said.
