An Open Letter to ASF

8 August 2017

Dear ASF,

As the Young Professionals of the Gold Coast, we wanted to let you know that we are fully supportive of your investment in the Gold Coast and we wanted you to know – please don’t give up on our City. 

We are sorry that, to date, your development proposals have not been successful. It is regrettable that as a City we have stuffed you around – first with Wavebreak and then with The Spit.

But we truly believe that the Gold Coast is maturing into a global city and the type of investment you wish to make is critical to ensuring we continue to attract the best talent from around the world. 

We are a passionate group of Gold Coasters advocating for quality economic development, and diversification of our career prospects.  Your development will begin to realise these aims.

As a group, we think the perfect location for your development is the ‘old hospital site’ in Southport, the Gold Coast’s CBD. It’s just over 3 hectares in size, on top of a hill with water views, with 3 road frontages, and a light rail station out the front.  The site is currently vacant.  

A prospective purchaser of the site has proposed a very mediocre development, but we believe our CBD deserves better.

We believe this site within our CBD deserves your development.  It is the prime site within our CBD, with the highest and best zoning in our City (Priority Development Area) - so you won’t get stuffed around there!

We would love to see your development built within our City. Your development is exactly what the future generations living, working and visiting our City will want and need.

Signed, 

YP Gold Coast
