Southport Central's Architectural Beauty

Southport is Gold Coast's central business district. Being so, you'd expect skyscrapers to equal the more popular suburb of Surfer's Paradise. True enough, while exploring the area's commercial center, in the vicinity of Nerang Road (the suburb's Ayala Avenue and historical core), we were mesmerized with the three-tower Southport Central. In this post, we shall feature this glistening mixed-use property.

This multi-purpose commercial and residential development, located at the corner of Lawson and Scarborough Streets, rises to a height of 417 feet (127 meters), boasting of 40 floors of prime space. With three towers and an integrated shopping and commercial space, this property is said to be worth $700 million.

What aesthetically caught my attention was its interplay of glass panels; red, white and blue colors from its concrete framework. I may not be an architectural expert, but I know beauty when I see one.

This is the Eye in the Sky!

It will house one of the Gold Coast's biggest medical facility, eploying about 5,000 personnel.
