Dog-themed tower ahead of schedule despite rain
THE Gold Coast’s first dog-themed residential tower will have something special hidden in its foundations.
The $20 million, eight-storey tower by developer Shintaku Australia is ahead of schedule and on track to open at Christmas despite heavy rain in recent weeks. Concrete for the Broad-beach development’s basement levels has been laid this week.
Michy Tanabe, the project’s owner, celebrated the milestone by putting her fingerprints on the project – literally. Ms Tanabe and her beloved dalmatian Juibay placed their hand and pawprints into the cement foundations.
The pet-friendly project’s centrepiece will be a rooftop dog park and there are plans for a hydrobath station to wash playful pups. The rooftop will also have a community recreation area with a barbecue and communal vegetable garden.
There will be 56 units spread accross seven of the levels, with a mixture of between one and three bedrooms. It was designed by local firm BDA Architects and is being built by Condev Constructions.
