The Queensland Government accepts the casino projects of ASF in Main Beach
The hotel complex and casino project of several million dollars on the Gold Coast might finally become a reality. Indeed, the Queensland government seems to be favorable to the project after months of hesitation while maintaining its opposition to the site. The International Group ASF Consortium planned to build a hotel complex and a marina on Wavebreak Island but the project stagnated since the Queensland Labor Party (QLP) came to power. The government has fulfilled its commitment in the protection of Wavebreak Island and its precious natural assets. The Minister of Development of the State, Anthony Lynham, has just announced on Tuesday morning that the State of Queensland allows the ASF Consortium to continue its project on public land next to Sea World in Main Beach.
This new government approval surprised the "Save Our Spit Alliance", a group that fights against casino projects in Southport Spit, and questioned the similar project on the site. The minister said that the site near the Sea World was already intended, since 2013, for the development of a resort. Note that the State approval relates only to the hotel complex and casino, cruise ship terminal was abandoned. ASF must, however, make a new detailed presentation during the first quarter of 2016 on the new site of about five hectares. The resort will be one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in Queensland, with its entertainment center and casino games, hotel, shopping center and various cultural, residential and outdoor activities.
