HOTA Project

A striking new cultural destination is under development on Australia’s Gold Coast. Being delivered on a 16.9-hectare site within walking distance of Surfers Paradise, HOTA, Home of the Arts will be a heart for arts, culture and creative enterprise.

With new visual and performing arts facilities and a programmed outdoor artscape, the completed HOTA will support the city’s already thriving cultural evolution.

The concept for our new heart for arts and culture – created by ARM Architecture + Topotek1 - is the result of an international design competition and is the basis of a cultural destination for residents and visitors which will evolve in stages over the next 10 to 15 years.

With an art hotel, creative industries, cafes and other facilities, HOTA will come alive with 24-hour activity and a world-class artistic and cultural program.

HOTA Gallery

A $60.5 million art gallery will become a cultural beacon and must see destination for residents and visitors.


Green Bridge

A vital connector to Chevron Island and the Surfers Paradise tourist hub and beyond, the Green Bridge will be delivered by October 2019.
