The GCHKP is evolving to expand from its key partners and occupants to eventually generate $2.9 billion for the Gold Coast economy and support up to 26,000 jobs.
As a key legacy of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games is realised, the former Athletes Village has been transformed into a vibrant mixed-use community with the Lumina commercial cluster at its heart.
The first private development, Proxima, commenced construction in 2021, the Precinct’s Cohort Innovation Space has already been expanded twice, with a third expansion planned, while other 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, through co-locating with a 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, in mid 2023.
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 nano-technology, 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.
