GemLife CEO Adrian Puljich said it is going ahead with a lifestyle community at Logan City on Queensland’s Gold Coast despite the threat of a new highway being built over part of the proposed site.
Living Gems was granted approval to build 456 units on the site in the suburb of Eagleby in 2019 and Mr Puljich said “bulk earthworks operations have begun in earnest with an anticipated village launch in Q4 2021”.
However 110 units are in the path of Queensland Government Department of Transport and Main Roads’ planned six-lane Coomera Connector highway, which is still subject to change.
“We will continue to work with the Government to ensure that a mutually beneficial outcome can be achieved for all parties concerned, however, Living Gems remains intent on delivering a manufactured home estate on either all or a portion of the site, in the coming months,” said Mr Puljich.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has assessed a number of alternative routes in the vicinity of Eagleby and the matter is still open for negotiations.
