This project is the second stage of revitalisation and upgrade to Griffith Street. Griffith Street plays a pivotal role in the greater Coolangatta business precinct and forms an important connection to the border and beyond.
This section of Griffith Street encompasses accommodation houses, restaurants/eateries and a variety of other commercial businesses. Many of the restaurants have outdoor dining areas extending to the footpath contributing to a livelier atmosphere in the street.
In 2019, the Coolangatta and Kirra Business Centre Place Based Master Plan was completed and endorsed by Council. The master plan identified the Griffith Street upgrade as a high priority project with public art as a key component and opportunity to the revitalisation of Coolangatta.
The public art component of the project is seen as a substantial opportunity for local, young and emerging artists to represent the unique culture and history of Coolangatta, to celebrate its diverse identities, share its stories to connect and give the community a strong sense of place and pride.
This second stage Griffith Street project will deliver urban design streetscape improvements between Warner and Stuart Streets, including:
