An empty block of land in a booming Gold Coast suburb has traded for almost $1.2 million, with plans for two luxury homes on the site.
The 405-square-metre property is in Miami, which has experienced whopping 81 per cent house price growth over five years. The median now stands at a tick more than $1.3 million but was about $719,000 in 2018, representing a gain of $580,000.
The deal for 120 Nobby Parade was struck in June this year for $1.19 million, the listing shows.
It was pitched as the cheapest plot of land near Miami beach, about 500 metres to the golden shore and lapping waves.
The campaign was handled by agency Realty Blue.

Duplex plans for 120 Nobby Parade would be shared with the buyer should they wish, the listing advised.
The residences have three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a pool, within a medium-density residential zone.
The artist’s renders of the design on the listing show side-by-side, coastal-inspired mid-century style homes, with chic Tiffany blue doors and breeze blocks, under the shade of tall palms and an elegant, low profile.
