Cultural evolution hits historic milestone: beehive demolished

29 June 2016

The city’ s ‘ cultural evolution’  passed a milestone today with the historic former Council administration building making way for the birth of a world-class amphitheatre and art-space.

“ The beehive, as it is affectionately known, has been demolished, replaced with community space as part of stage one of the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct,’ ’  said Mayor Tom Tate.

“ This is the last significant section of the 40-year-old administration building to be demolished. In its place, we will see an amphitheatre and stage that can cater for 850 patrons seated, to around 5000 guests standing.

“ In less than two years, this site will be the city’ s heart for artistic, cultural and civic celebration.

“I look forward to opening those community facilities for all to enjoy. I also look forward to the start of construction for the Chevron Island green bridge which is high on my agenda.’ ’
