‘Jewel’ in the Gold Coast’s crown

Wanda Ridong Group and Brookfield Multiplex has joined forces to develop an award-winning development

The landscape at Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast of Australia is set to change with the iconic ‘Jewel’ project, a joint venture between Chinese real estate firm Wanda Ridong Group and Australian developer Brookfield Multiplex. The first of its kind to be built in 30 years, this luxury mixed-use scheme consists of residential, retail, restaurants and a five-star hotel.

Built to resemble three smoky quartz crystals from the Gold Coast’s Mount Warning, the Jewel spans 130-metres across prime beach front, adding to its impressive geometric design. Last month the team from Wanda travelled to the Gold Coast to seal the AUD$ 1 billion project that houses 512 residential units alongside a luxury 169 suite five-star hotel.

“Jewel will be the finest residential and hotel development ever seen in Australia, with levels of luxury never previously experienced here,” said Chen Guocai, Vice President at Wanda’s commercial properties.

A claim that is reinforced by the Jewel’s recent success in the Asia Property Awards. Part of the world renowned International Property Awards, the Jewel competed against hundreds of other entrants to be awarded the Best Mixed-Use Architecture, and was also highly commended in the Mixed-Use Development category.

The Jewel’s victory will see it competing against other entrants for the ‘World’s Best’ at the International Property Awards in London.

The residential units in the first release of this critically acclaimed development have already nearly sold out.

Lucas Wilson, Marketing and Sales manager at Jewel, said: “International recognition such as this will only add to the attention from buyers around the world.”

As interest for the next phase mounts, the hype of excitement at the Jewel is expected to continue.
