“It’s delivering a major boost to the Gold Coast economy, with local residents and businesses the biggest winners.
“The project supports the local community by choosing local workers first, and supporting local suppliers wherever possible,” said Employment Minister Grace Grace.

According to Ms Grace, since the global financial crisis, this project is the first major development on the Gold Coast and is the first absolute beachfront development in the area in 30 years.
Jewel is designed by Gold Coast architect Barry Lee of DBI Design and is being built by Brookfield Multiplex.

“When complete, Jewel will be Australia’s largest hotel and residential complex – a massive vote of confidence in the Gold Coast and its economy.
“Local workers and jobseekers will benefit immensely as construction ramps up and the project builds towards completion in 2019,” Ms Grace said.
