The HOTA Project


The HOTA Project

The HOTA precinct is the centrepiece of the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct masterplan. The masterplan is a result of City of Gold Coast Council’s vison of a central cultural precinct for the city’s thriving cultural and artistic activity.

The opening of the Outdoor Stage at HOTA, Home of the Arts in Feb 2018 marked completion of the $37.5 million Stage 1a of the masterplan.

Stage 1b saw the construction of a $19.5 million HOTA Bridge to Chevron Island which was opened on Feb 2 2020, and the construction of the $60.5 million new HOTA Gallery which will open on 8 May 2021.

And there’s more to come. The masterplan is the blueprint which guides evolution of the precinct over 10 to 15 years, as funding is identified and as the city’s artistic and cultural needs grow.
