The three distinctive towers that make up Yuhu Group Australia’s billion-dollar Jewel project on Queensland’s Gold Coast are expected to reach their maximum construction height in August (2018), the Gold Coast Bulletin has reported.
Yuhu Group chairman Xiangmo Huang and his son and company director Jimmy Huang recently visited the Surfers Paradise construction site. They described the Jewel’s fundamental design elements as “brilliant” and said they were very satisfied with construction progress. The project remains on target for ultimate completion by mid-2019.
Mr Huang snr said his family considered the Jewel an important legacy project and confirmed it would retain ownership of the premium five-star hotel. The Jewel towers also feature luxury private residences.
He said as the new owners the Jewel name was being kept as it fits perfectly with the development’s iconic status. “We are very passionate about this project and want to be proud of it as we plan to be involved here for many years to come. We are very community-minded and want to fit into the local fabric.”
Jimmy Huang said the company was taking a very meticulous approach with regard to project finishes throughout and there was a particular focus on providing the best mix of integrated services and amenities.
“We have for example decided to reconfigure and increase the areas for bars and fine dining and we are ready to welcome world-class retailers into our spaces,” he said.
The Jewel will include a waterfront gym and indoor pool as part of a spa and wellness centre with premium hair and beauty salons part of the package. It will also feature a stunning ballroom for up to 800 people, function and meeting rooms, as well as ocean-facing outdoor pools and a children’s playground.
“We want this to be a place that draws people in, somewhere they will love spending their time,” Jimmy Huang said.
A community celebration is planned for August to mark the Jewel towers reaching their maximum height.
