A CITY OF THE FUTURE
Experiencing a new economic boom, the Gold Coast is expecting an injection of billions of dollars’ worth of infrastructure across the city over the coming years including:
- $200 million in sporting, transport and community infrastructure for the 2018 Commonwealth Games
- M1 motorway upgrades
- the Jupiter Star Casino expansion
- luxurious high-rise resorts, e.g. the billion-dollar Jewel project in Surfers Paradise
- a sport and community centre in the neighbouring suburb of Pimpama
- many other development applications with council, including an adventure theme park along the Nerang river.
The Gold Coast economy is valued at $25 billion. While traditionally focusing on tourism and construction, council is now committed to diversifying the city, investing in manufacturing, health, education and professional services with employment expected to reach approximately 300,000 in the next decade.

THE FUTURE’S BRIGHT
Millions of dollars are being injected into the Gold Coast economy, making it one of the fastest growing in Australia. This, along with its natural beauty and perfect climate, makes it one of the most liveable cities in the world. Be part of it and see your business thrive.
2018 COMMONWEALTH GAMES
The Gold Coast will host the XXI Commonwealth Games in 2018, Australia’s largest event this decade.
Launching the Gold Coast onto the world stage, the Games will showcase the city to a global audience of more than one billion4.
WESTFIELD COOMERA TOWN CENTRE
Westfield’s new proposed Coomera shopping centre, expected to open in 2018, will deliver a major economic boost to the region.
The development is expected to ultimately comprise approximately 77,000 sqm and will create thousands of job opportunities, within a short walk to The Link Coomera.
M1 MOTORWAY UPGRADE
The Link Coomera is located approximately 1km from Exit 54, which has received a $74.7 million upgrade to manage the increase in traffic created by the new Westfield shopping centre and residential boom, making access to The Link Coomera even easier6.
GOLD COAST LIGHT RAIL — CONNECTING THE GOLD COAST
The Gold Coast light rail system, with the capacity to move more than 3000 passengers per hour, links all the Gold Coast’s hotspots – including Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast University Hospital.
The $420 million stage two project will see the line continued through to neighbouring suburb Helensvale, with seven new stations, terminating at Helensvale railway station – just one stop away from the Coomera railway station7.
FLEXIBILITY OF ZONING
The Link Coomera is a 54-hectare property (Phase 1 is 36 hectares and Phase 2 is 18 hectares) that is zoned for both industrial (low impact industry) and mixed use (fringe business) allowing for multiple commercial uses and large format retail.
(Note that prospective owners will be required to obtain development approvals under the Planning Act (QLD) 2016 for their proposed uses for each of the individual lots. More detail regarding the zoning, intended uses within zones and assessment are contained in the City Plan adopted by the City of Gold Coast (Council). A link to a City Plan Property Report compiled by the Council is provided hereunder.)
The mixed-use zoning at The Link Coomera will be the newest and most significant industrial and mixeduse development on the Gold Coast.
Your business will benefit from the many features of The Link Coomera including:
- An elevated position, with excellent exposure to motorists on the M1 Motorway.
- A large variety of lots, ranging in size from 0.23Ha to larger than 1.6Ha, all serviced to Council regulations.
- A beautifully landscaped estate including large ecological open spaces and a creek.
- Easy connection and access to Coomera Town Centre and major transport nodes including the Coomera train station.
Getting to The Link Coomera is easy, no matter where your workers, customers and suppliers are travelling from, due to its convenient and central location.
The site is located adjacent to the M1 Motorway and approximately 1km north of the interchange at Exit 54, creating easy access from the south (Gold Coast CBD and beyond), the north (including Beenleigh and Brisbane) and from the northern suburbs of the Gold Coast located to the west of the M1 motorway.
The Link Coomera is conveniently located on an existing service road (Old Pacific Highway).
The Coomera train station is approximately 800m south with the possibility of a public transport link planned to travel through The Link Coomera.
The future Coomera North M1 Motorway interchange will be partially located on the northern side of the The Link Coomera as part of Phase 2 developments.
A four-lane trunk road connection is planned to extend from the Coomera North interchange, travelling across the rail corridor to provide access to the existing East Coomera residential community and the future high-density residential development on the east of the rail corridor. This will also include an overpass across the M1 Motorway , providing access to communities located to the west of the motorway.
A new trunk road connection is planned to cross through The Link Coomera between the existing M1 Exit 54 to the south, and the future Coomera North interchange.
