The long sought-after Queensland stretch hasn’t slowed down despite the rising construction costs and volatile building sector.
Colliers recently reported that strong population growth, a fast-growing economy and more than $20 billion in infrastructure and investment ahead of the 2032 Olympic Games are just some of the things that will continue to drive the Gold Coast property market over the next decade.
While a string of luxe projects have cropped up around the region, many have a number of options for those looking to get their start in the property market.

The newly launched project at 4 Twenty First Avenue has a handful of one-bedroom apartments under $700,000 in the block of 40.
It’s being developed by the local Dorr family, who have lived at the prime dress circle spot for over seven decades. The Dorr family actually built the home just 40 metres from the beach, which is soon to be demolished to make way for the nine-level development.
The amenity is located on the roof, where there’s a north-facing pool with both ocean and
hinterland views, as well as a barbecue area.
Pezet Matheson Director Todd Matheson says
Seaclusion is a rare offering for Palm Beach.
“Nobody builds one and two-bedroom apartments at this price point on the beach side of the highway,” Matheson says.
“Most apartment developments on the beach side are half or full floors, and can start anywhere from $2.5 million to $4 million.”
Tapestry, Chevron Island Price: From $725,000
The Brisbane-based boutique developer,
Siera Group, fronted by Founder and Managing Director Brent Thompson, made the trip down to the Gold Coast for their inaugural apartment project.

Due to high demand in the early stages of marketing, Siera recently received approval for the addition of another five levels to the tower, with the extra apartments to fill the demand in the area.
BDA were tasked with handling the architecture for Tapestry, with Siera also engaging local artist, Tania Blanchard, to create an artwork which will hang in the lobby of the 113-apartment tower when completed.
The two-bedroom apartments come in at $699,000, sharing the space with two-bathrooms, across 100 sqm, along with one car space.
