The GCHKP is projected to evolve from its key partners and foundation occupants to eventually generate $2.9 billion for the Gold Coast economy and support up to 26,000 jobs.
As key legacy of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games is realised, the former Athletes Village has been transformed into a vibrant mixed-used community with our Lumina commercial cluster at its heart.
Lumina’s first private development, Proxima, commenced construction in 2021 and the Precinct’s Cohort Innovation Space has already expanded its commercial footprint three times. A new Image-Guided Surgery Training and Technologies centre opens early 2023 as other incoming projects are set to build workforce and niche capabilities.
Up to 30 Griffith University researchers and PhD students will develop innovative programs and early interventions for young children, including those with additional needs, by co-locating with the new Sanctuary Early Learning Centre and paediatric clinicians from Gold Coast Health.
Developer Evans Long is set to complete construction on the Proxima building, which will also be home to paediatric health and other services, by early 2024.
Griffith University’s $100 million Advanced Design and Manufacturing Institute (ADaPT) will be a flagship innovation facility for the GCHKP, translating university research and technology, together with world-leading industry partners and collaborators, at the cutting-edge of additive manufacturing and new personalised medicine technology.
ADaPT will merge the university’s expertise in micro and nanotechnology, new materials, biomechanical and biomedical engineering, big data and artificial/augmented intelligence, complex medical imaging and 3D printing design and technology, with the innovation of partner companies and clinicians to engineer next-generation medical and industrial applications.
Global healthcare technology leader Philips are partnering on a cutting-edge research and training centre in the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct, where its latest image-guided therapy technology will support training of specialist physicians from across the Asia-Pacific and pioneer new precision approaches in a wide range of clinical areas—from cardiovascular disease to stroke, cancer and spine conditions.
Led by interventional neuroradiologists Dr Hal Rice and Dr Laetitia de Villiers, who deliver the latest innovative treatments for stroke and brain aneurysms at Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH), the facility showcases Philips’ interventional solutions and will trial new technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and novel 3D printed anatomical models.
The pilot centre is also being supported by NorthWest Healthcare Properties, Australia’s largest developer and owner of healthcare properties, ahead of moving into their state-of-the-art new building, ‘RDX Lumina’, on a prominent GCHKP site in the Lumina commercial cluster.
RDX Lumina has received development approval, with construction set to commence in Q2 of 2023.
