Parklands: A Vibrant Inclusive Community

The Parklands Project by Grocon is a mixed use residential and retail development which is committed to delivering a diverse, inclusive and sustainable community.

The project is located at Southport and is within the emerging Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct. This setting includes a major University, public and private hospitals, a special needs school, light rail station and other public facilities.

The Parklands Project proudly embraces Livable Housings Australia’s Livable Housing Guidelines. All 1,170 apartments have been designed to the Gold Standard, and all 82 townhouses to the Silver Standard. This compliments the accessible urban design features found throughout the public realm including parks, pedestrian routes and outdoor meeting places.

The project will be completed in late 2017 and used to accommodate the athletes of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. Grocon and it’s Investment partners will retain ownership of the dwellings and after the Games will offer the dwellings to the public as permanent rental accommodation.

Grocon is confident that the adoption of the LHA Design Guidelines will ensure that the dwellings will meet the needs of a broad cross section of the community and will retain their strong appeal well in to the future.
