We'll see another four towers pop up around the Broadbeach casino over the next decade, after the state government signed off on The Star Gold Coast's $2 billion masterplan.
The project was expected to create more than 10,000 jobs all up.
Each of accommodation towers would need 1,800 workers to build, while the towers, restaurants, bars, days spas and other facilities would create another 3,000 ongoing operational jobs.
The Star was hoping to build a tower at the site every two, with all seven to be completed by 2028.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the development approval for The Star Entertainment Group, Far East Consortium and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises would provide a big economic boost for the region and attract more tourists to the Gold Coast.
“On completion of The Star Gold Coast and its $3.6 billion Queens Wharf Brisbane development, the consortium will have created up to 10 hotels, with almost 3,000 rooms between them, and up to 100 restaurants and bars.
"This translates into some 15,000 new jobs for Queenslanders," said Ms Palaszczuk.
