Southport's Chinatown will be the site of two new towers including an 88-storey skyscraper that will be the tallest in the Southern Hemisphere, under a new development application lodged with Gold Coast City Council, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
The development, located on a 4300 sq m site between Young, Nerang and Garden Streets, will include a mix of retail and commercial spaces to podium level, with the towers containing apartments.
The developer is the Cienna Group, a NSW-based company with five directors, two of whom are based in Singapore.

The Cienna development will include two towers, with the largest to be 88 storeys while its smaller counterpart will be around 38 levels.
The Q1 tower, which is currently the southern hemisphere’s tallest building, is 78 levels.
