Breakwater is a proposed 73-hectare master planned community that will connect Robina, Merrimac and Council’s planned, Green Heart Parklands. Exhibiting a unique opportunity to deliver a healthy and active community, centred around the parklands, while delivering affordable housing in a location where demand is high and supply is limited.
Designed to generate a range of economic, environmental and social benefits for the existing community, the masterplan would see the delivery of 1,500 townhouses and apartments, connected with new roads and public transport. The community will be linked to 50 hectares of public open space and city’s planned Green Heart parklands by six kilometres of path and cycle ways.
Sensitively integrating the natural environment with the built form, Walker plans to rehabilitate the sites degraded agricultural land and wetlands to the benefit of both residents and native wildlife. The proposed masterplan includes a range of facilities that promote 'active and healthy living' such as canoe launch platforms, nature corridors, sports ovals and playgrounds.
A diversity of housing will create an inclusive community suitable for people at all stages of life. Delivering new housing close to existing infrastructure in an established, employment-rich area, where people can live, work, study and socialise within their neighbourhood. Construction is expected to commence in 2021.
Breakwater is bordered by Robina and Merrimac, two Gold Coast suburbs. Robina is the larger suburb with an established town centre and vibrant shopping precinct, super stadium, a full range of educational and medical facilities. The site is well connected with direct links to other parts of the Gold Coast via three main arterial roads and Robina train station.
