Parklands is a landmark precinct and represents Queensland’s largest multi-residential project ever undertaken in a single stage. Now known as the Smith Collective, the build-to-rent scheme will house approximate 2500 residents.

The design by joint venture group AAA – Arkhefield, ARM and Archipelago with Lat27 –  for Grocon brings together hinterland and coastline to capture the essence of the subtropical climate emblematic of the Gold Coast. The village temporarily housed 6,500 athletes and officials during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, and has been converted post games into the new Smith Collective community.

After the games, the infrastructure was transformed into a modern, vibrant, residential and business community that is integrated into the adjacent Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct. The 7.1ha site organises itself around a main street connecting Parklands Drive, Hospital Boulevard and the Village Heart, and includes 1252 dwellings consisting of 3 bedroom town homes and 1 and 2 bedroom apartments.

Sustainability was at the core of the design for Parklands and has been acknowledged as Australia’s first 6 Star Green Star Community by the Green Building Council of Australia.
