Broadbeach set for luxury apartment tower

Broadbeach

The Brisbane-based developer Marquee Developments are making their first play on the Gold Coast.

Their latest plans submitted to the Gold Coast City Council will see a luxury high-rise tower developed at 17 Federation Avenue in Broadbeach, their first in the central Gold Coast suburb.

There will be just 22 apartments across the 20-level, 62 metre tower, crowned by a massive two-level penthouse.

Hayes Anderson Lynch Architects have drawn up the plans for the 62 metre building, which is targeted at the owner-occupier, with six two-bedroom apartments, six three-bedroom apartments and 10-four bedders.

Broadbeach

Levels two to seven will home two apartments per floor, then from level eight upwards will be nine whole-floor, four-bedroom apartments, each with over 290 sqm of living space and a media room. The building is oriented so the balconies capture views of the ocean to the south-east, and south-west to the hinterland.

The four-bedroom penthouse spans the top two levels. The bedrooms are located on the first level, then stairs from the library space lead to the upstairs living areas. The open plan kitchen and living area opens to a 30 sqm balcony, while a second lounge area opens to a 70 sqm terrace with its own private pool.

Each of the three bedroom apartments will have a master with walk-in wardrobes and balconies starting from over 16 sqm.

The ground level will offer residents 230 sqm of communal space and amenity, including a swimming pool and spa, dining and barbecue area and a lounge /cinema room.

Marquee, not to be confused with Marquee Development Partners who exclusively operate in the area, secured the 632 sqm site, mid-way along Federation Avenue, between the intersections of Australia Avenue to the north and Queensland Avenue to the south, early this year for $3.69 million. Currently on the site is the mid 1970s apartment building Marmadua, a three-storey walk up with basement parking underneath.

Marquee’s track record is a successful one in Brisbane.

Founded in 2012 by Nick Madden and John Langford-Ely, Marquee’s patch has primarily been in the luxury townhouse space just outside of the Brisbane CBD.

TOWN PLANNING REPORT

The overall form of the proposed development has been developed through considered analysis of the context and character of the site and its surroundings, and the intended city form for this urban neighbourhood focused on the Principal Centre of Broadbeach and within the Light Rail urban renewal corridor of the City.

The tower form and materiality combined delivers a slender tower with horizontal façade treatments, extensive balconies with recessed glazing lines and materials (including colour palette) that presents a high-quality architectural finish, enhancing the visual interest and character of the built form in its context to deliver a desirable city form outcome and a positive addition to the streetscape character Federation Avenue.

The façade is broken up by generous balconies that are oriented to the west overlooking Federation Avenue and the hinterland backdrop, and to the east towards the ocean.

The development ensures the internal spaces afford a high level of comfort and quality, benefiting from climatic responsive design that incorporates screening and shade elements, a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living spaces and facilitates access to prevailing breezes, natural sunlight, ocean views

Bassar Construction Group set for Eternity, Broadbeach apartment tower

Bassar Construction Group set for Eternity

Bassar Construction Group, who are behind the sold-out Broadbeach apartment building Infinity, is preparing to release its second Broadbeach project.

Bassar, who sold out the 62-apartment, 39-storey Infinity development in March, currently under construction on the corner of Surf Parade and George Avenue, has secured a site at 14-18 Mary Avenue to developer Eternity.

Kollosche agent Simon Worthington negotiated the off-market sale of the 1518 sqm site for $16.6 million.

That sale, which settled at the start of May, paves the way for Eternity, a DA-approved 35-level development comprised of 88 apartments, including two penthouses, and resort-style amenities.

“The major appeal of this site is the unobstructed ocean views because that is what people expect when they visualise their sea change on the Gold Coast,” said Leo Sarris, who heads up Bassar Construction Group alongside Simon Bassil.

“Our commitment and focus remain in Broadbeach because we feel it is the suburb that caters for everyone and everything you need is within walking distance.” Located opposite Broadbeach State School, the site is currently home to two seventies-style blocks of flats across two titles.”

Gold Coast-based Plus Architecture has been engaged to conceive a slender design which improves upon an existing development approval sold with the site.

Eternity will offer three and four-bedroom floor plans ranging from 190 sqm to 300 sqm, in addition to the 500 sqm for the penthouse suites.

Apartments will each have a double garage, while the penthouses come with triple car parking, a rooftop terrace and a plunge pool.

Residents will also benefit from a magnesium pool and spa, infrared sauna, steam room, gym and residents’ lounge.

“We know that buyers in the luxury space prefer to have larger apartments,” said Sarris.

“That third or fourth bedroom is important for downsizers who like to host guests and for growing families who prefer easy, low-maintenance living.”

Kollosche New Projects has been appointed as the exclusive selling agents for Eternity, with registrations of interest now being taken ahead of the official project launch in June.

Hutchinson Builders, who are also building Infinity, have been appointed by open negotiation to lead a 2.5-year construction timeline which would see the team break dirt in early 2023.

Sarris noted the key relationships forged on Infinity have carried over to Eternity, creating not only a smooth pathway for the developer but also confidence for buyers.

“Aligning ourselves with the right people in the industry has been key to our success on the Gold Coast to date and we’ve been very deliberate in taking those relationships into our next project,” said Sarris.

“When you look at the issues we’ve faced as an industry through Covid – be that increases in material prices and supply issues – you’re always better off working with people that you know will take the project to completion with you.”

$1.4b Jewel finally set to shine with The Langham opening in June

Jewel finally set to shine with The Langham opening in June

The $1.4 billion Jewel development, completed two years ago and still with only a handful of apartment sales under its belt, is finally set to come to life with the announcement that Langham Hospitality Group will open its long-awaited five-star hotel at the property in June.

The Langham Gold Coast will be the third hotel in Australia for the Hong Kong-based hotels group which takes its name from the legendary Langham in London.

It will also be the second five-star hotel opened on the Gold Coast since The Star Entertainment Group’s (ASX: SGR) The Darling welcomed its first guests at Broadbeach in 2018.

The 339-room Langham hotel, set to open on 23 June, will occupy the central tower of Jewel Residences, the largest of the three-tower complex located on the beachfront at the southern end of Surfers Paradise. The hotel offering will comprise 169 hotel rooms and 170 serviced apartments within the tower.

The opening has been hotly anticipated since the announcement in mid-2020 that The Langham would be managing the hotel component of Jewel. The hotel was originally expected to open by Christmas last year as fitout work progressed through the year.

With bookings for the hotel opening on 16 May, The Langham Gold Coast has revealed the hotel offering will introduce a host of new restaurants and amenities to appeal to tourists and locals, including the lobby lounge’s Palm Court, modelled on The Langham London’s famous afternoon tea venue, and an all-day dining offering named Akoya.

Later this year, The Langham will introduce T’ang Court – sister venue to the group’s Michelin-starred restaurants in Hong Kong and Shanghai – as well as an open-air terrace bar, Coral Moon, and the casual dining outlet 26 & Sunny. The Langham will also introduce a holistic wellness centre that embraces traditional Chinese medicine.

The planned opening has been described as a milestone for The Langham, its first beachfront property ‘in one of the world’s most desirable travel destinations’.

“Since first opening in London in 1865, The Langham has built an unmatched, global reputation for timeless elegance and a true five-star experience,” says John O’Shea, general manager of The Langham Gold Coast.

“The Langham Gold Coast will bring together Langham’s global expertise in luxury hospitality and gastronomic dining with an iconic Gold Coast oceanfront location to provide a unique, one-of-a-kind hotel, dining and events experience. The team have been working hard behind closed doors to add the final sparkling touches to the hotel and now, we can’t wait to welcome our very first guests into what will be a new era of luxury for the Gold Coast and beyond.”

Destination Gold Coast CEO Patricia O’Callaghan welcomed the announcement which she says introduces a ‘globally recognised brand’ to the Glitter Strip.

“As the first development with direct beachfront access to be built on the Gold Coast for 30 years, The Langham will bring a new level of luxury accommodation to our city,” says O’Callaghan.

The opening of The Langham caps off more than a decade of hurdles and controversy for Jewel, a project that has changed hands multiple times since it was first mooted in 2011 by Chinese company Ridong Group for the prime 1.1ha beachfront site. Jewel was touted by the industry as the kickstart the Gold Coast economy needed at a time when it was still suffering the extended fallout from the Global Financial Crisis.

Although the project was called in by the Queensland Government in 2012, fast-tracking the development, the site lay dormant for years until Ridong sold a majority interest in the project in 2015 to Beijing-based Dalian Wanda, owned by Wang Jianlin, who at the time was Asia’s richest person. Ridong would later offloaded its remaining 45 per cent stake to Sydney-based Yuhu Group, another company backed by Chinese interests.

However, a crackdown on foreign capital outflows from China thwarted progress of the development and Dalian Wanda was forced to sell full control to Yuhu Group in 2018.

Originally pitched as a drawcard targeting the then lucrative inbound Chinese tourist market to the Gold Coast, led by direct flights to the Gold Coast from Wuhan that were introduced by Dalian Wanda, Jewel took a different tack under Yuhu’s ownership. The company poured more than $100 million into redesigning the Jewel project’s interiors, including apartment layouts.

However, since the project was completed in 2019, just 18 of Jewel’s 520 planned apartments have ever settled – despite the Gold Coast experiencing its biggest property boom over the past two years, driven by a shortage of apartments.

When Jewel was relaunched to the market in 2018, two-bedroom apartments were priced from $2.575 million and three bedrooms from $3.982 million, which at the time was considered well above the prevailing market.

Despite the planned opening of The Langham, there are still no signs of a new marketing push by Yuhu to sell the remaining apartments in Jewel.

Construction is expected to kick off in June, with completion slated for mid 2024.

Habitat Development Group sales agent Conor Cochrane said they’ve heard from every kind of buyer since the project launched.

“The response from the market since launching has been phenomenal with an overwhelming number of enquiries resulting in sales across all product types from 1 bed units right through to Premier Penthouse Units at over $2 million,” Cochrane said.

“We’re excited to be commencing construction at The Corso in the comings weeks, further strengthening our commitment to the Sunshine Coast and supporting local trades and suppliers.

About the developer

Founded in 2005, Habitat is a leading Sunshine Coast- based property development company that specialises in the residential sector.

The group previously sold out their $83 million Maroochydore project Market Lane, with The Corso expected to follow suite.  

The team are hoping to have development approval for their 200-apartment St Claire development in Birtinya in the next few months.
