GemLife Gold Coast

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.

Tapestry Residences

Tapestry Residences

Tapestry is a 22-story residential apartment complex located in the small neighbourhood of Chevron Island, Gold Coast.

Surrounded by the serene waters of the Nerang River, this development offers 113 meticulously designed apartments, catering to homeowners seeking a balance between simplicity and modern comfort. SIERA and BDA Architects classily integrated biophilic design, sustainability initiatives, and community engagement to create a harmonious living environment for its residents to enjoy a unique and sustainable community.

Throughout the design process, a conscious effort was made to create functional spaces that harmonize with nature and add value to day-to-day living. Evident throughout the complex, this approach is seen through the generous communal areas on the ground floor and on the rooftop which feature lush greenery, providing residents with a serene oasis amidst the urban landscape. This biophilic design not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also contributes to improved air quality and well-being.

Tapestry’s rooftop is poised to be a truly standout feature of the project. Encompassing sustainability and a sense of community, a fruit/herb/vegetable garden has been allocated to a generous portion of the rooftop. Residents can actively participate in cultivating their produce and fostering a sense of community and self-sufficiency. This garden not only provides fresh, organic produce but also serves as a hub for social interaction and shared knowledge about sustainable living. The community actively encourages composting in this space, diverting organic waste from landfills and turning it into nutrient-rich soil for the garden. Composting not only reduces waste but also aligns with Tapestry’s commitment to circular and sustainable practices.

In a further commitment to environmental sustainability, SIERA has incorporated certain technology to the building including solar power solutions to the rooftop, to harness clean energy from the sun, reducing the complex’s reliance on traditional energy sources and contributing to a lower carbon footprint. To enable sustainable transportation, SIERA has provisioned the building with the required EV charging infrastructure, recognising the importance of sustainable transportation. This initiative encourages residents to adopt electric vehicles, further reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting eco-friendly mobility.  In recognition of the changing work landscape, Tapestry offers a generously sized communal office space. This amenity supports remote work and reduces commuting, aligning with the evolving needs of residents in the digital age.

Tapestry embraces the essence of community living on Chevron Island. The development’s features and initiatives create an environment conducive to community engagement. The development actively integrates with the local community on Chevron Island, fostering a sense of belonging. Residents can enjoy the unique offerings of the island while benefiting from the sustainability initiatives within Tapestry.

Heathwood Hub

Heathwood Hub

Hub Heathwood is located in one of the fastest growing regions in Southeast Queensland and is positioned perfectly with easy access to existing key industrial precincts.

The site benefits from recent and significant transport infrastructure investment to the Logan Motorway which provides direct access to major transport corridors within 20km of the Brisbane CBD. The 24 new industrial lots are located on a portion of the ~69ha site, of which ~46ha has been rehabilitated and shall be dedicated as Environmental Protection Area, including newly constructed fauna habitat.

Where engineering and authority standards have allowed, recycled products (e.g. pavement gravels, concrete products, topsoil) have been implemented in subdivision construction which represented a significant volume of material being beneficially reused. The same approach will be taken for DAs approved to date for future warehouses, which have been sustainably developed to ensure provision for water and solar energy harvesting as well as soft landscape features with no permanent irrigation requirements.

Built form development by land purchasers within the newly created estate will be governed by Design Guidelines which reflect the objectives of EnviroDevelopment. These enable end users to select design solutions to complement those already integrated into the subdivision, in order to ensure that overall objectives and compliance are achieved.
