The HOTA Project

The HOTA precinct is the centrepiece of the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct masterplan. The Masterplan lays out the City’s vision for a central cultural precinct for the city’s thriving cultural and artistic activity and is the blueprint which guides the evolution of the precinct over the next 10 to 15 years as the city’s artistic and cultural needs grow.

The HOTA Project is a City of Gold Coast project and the buildings and infrastructure at HOTA, Home of the Arts are city assets. The City, guided by the Cultural Precinct Masterplan, decide on the scope, scale, and next stages of the project as funding is identified.
