RG Property to redevelop historic Fortitude Valley Bread Factory

RG Property project

The national property developer RG Property have lodged plans for a 15-storey residential tower in the heart of the buzzing Fortitude Valley.

The base of the tower, proposed for 36 Warry Street, is weaved into the existing heritage fabric that occupies the site, blending in between the buildings of Keating’s Bread Factory, which was established back in 1879 before becoming one of the major bread making companies in Brisbane.

Designed by Blight Rayner, the Warry St development will comprise a total 118 apartments, with a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom residences.

The ground level concept is to integrate the heritage buildings with the new built environment by linking them into a pedestrian laneway activated by food and retail outlets, forming the heart of the development.

“Initially, the historic buildings are intended to retain their predominantly office uses but over time, they may gradually change to retail and dining uses once the laneway gains a reputation as a hub of day and night life in Spring Hill,” said Blight Rayner in their development documents.

“The strategy for integrating new and old is twofold. One, by way of matching podium scale and two, by using a contemporary version of the heritage material palette, seeking not to imitate but add a new complimentary layer to the old,” they added.

Level one will home a yoga/pilates terrace along with a gym, which will overlook the bustling streetscape, in addition to three apartments that open out on to surrounding gardens.

Four vertical gardens, one on each side, are planned to enable vines to drape down each level and to grow laterally onto adjoining screens on the street-facing elevations.

Designed with the owner-occupier in mind, apartments offer a variety of layouts and floorplans, catering to differing living and lifestyles.

Large balconies are provided to all apartments and depending upon their orientation, balconies are variously open or screened.

The balconies provide depth to the three-dimensional form creating articulation around all sides, generally positioned on the corners of the building, giving two-way views as well as softening the built form.

“The typical apartment floors are accessed by an L-shaped corridor that opens up to gardens at each end and is naturally ventilated. The layout enables the majority of apartment balconies to occupy corners to optimise both outlook and aspect.”

Two penthouse levels provide larger apartments on the southern side of the tower, while creating a distinctive top to the built form.

Crowning the tower will be an expansive roof garden and swimming pool, with the intent that plants will drape over each edge and be highly visible from the streets and afar. The gardens will also screen the plant enclosure and surround a large barbecue plaza for its solar protection, reinforced by a lightweight, open pergola structure

The site has relatively good access to buses and Fortitude Valley Train Station, while sitting within walking distance of the Brisbane CBD, the new Fortitude Valley State Secondary College, and a host of other convenient amenities.

“The 36 Warry Street Project represents an exciting opportunity to enhance Spring Hill as a lifestyle precinct and inner-city destination.”

Pool, sauna and jacuzzi in every apartment: Caloundra ‘lighthouse’ project redefines luxury

Lighthouse By Karam

A developer wants to push luxury to new heights on Caloundra’s hilltop with an “iconic” apartment complex where you can play ‘golf’ in the penthouses.

Karam Boutique Residential has lodged an application with Sunshine Coast Council for its Lighthouse By Karam project of 26 ultra-deluxe apartments.

Taking luxury to the next level, every home would have its own plunge pool, infrared dry sauna and jacuzzi and each apartment would have three or four carparks.

The two penthouses, which would be priced over $6.5 million, would include golf simulators so residents could “play golf in your own living room”.

The eight-storey building would be perched opposite the historic lighthouses on Caloundra’s hilltop on Canberra Terrace, with views to the ocean and Glass House Mountains.

However, founder Neade Karam is also hoping to push up the project’s height limit by “asking for a couple more levels” on the sloped block which is zoned medium density.

Medium-density on the Coast generally refers to between two and six storeys but the developer is seeking eight and Mr Karam said they would work closely with council for the best outcome.

Mr Karam said he wanted to redefine high-end living on the Coast by offering palatial apartments of 600sqm, bigger than the average block size in Australia of 474sqm.

While the site, which stretches across 2 and 6 Canberra Terrace, could fit 60 to 80 apartments, Mr Karam said this project would have just 26 so they could be huge and extravagant.

Mr Karam told Sunshine Coast News the apartments would be larger and “more boutique” than those at the upcoming $250 million Paloma Paloma down the road which itself promises to “change Caloundra”.

“We really want to blow the market apart in terms of luxury; we really want to take it to the next level,” said Mr Karam.

“It’s just unheard of what we’re building here.”

But just because potential buyers have lots of money, it doesn’t mean they are assured of securing a property in Lighthouse by Karam.

Mr Karam said future home owners would be strictly vetted and hand-picked and would be required to live in the area as locals.

“It will be targeted and invitation-only and we will interview the buyers,” he said.

“It’s going to be extremely hard to buy because we’ll be vetting everybody personally. We’ll have lunch and get to know you.

“We’re not going to be arrogant but selective. We want to make sure that whoever buys blends in with Kings Beach.”

A development application was recently lodged with the council seeking a material change of use for multiple dwellings.

The 3,284sqm of land is zoned medium density but its neighbours are zoned high density.

Mr Karam said the project’s grand vision was born when a prized block of land on the corner of Canberra Terrace and Arthur Street came up for sale this year.

Until then, the developer was poised to start constructing a more modest project of four high-end terrace homes on three levels at 6 Canberra Terrace.

The opportunity arose to buy the land next door, on which sat an original red brick unit complex, providing a 114m frontage to Canberra Terrace.

“Once we got hold of a site that large in that position, we stepped right back and now we’re reworking the site to really do something special there,” he said.

“We want to make sure we blend in with the environment and make it unique.

“We want this to be a building that’s timeless; a building that looks iconic every time you drive past it, even 50 years from now.

“Like those old Italian castles that the older they get the more visually appealing they become.”

Mr Karam said final designs were still being worked on but the building would reflect the characteristics of the 1896 and 1968 lighthouses from which it derives its name.

“We’ve got the position and we need to get it right and we’re going to take the time to get it right,” he said.

Mr Karam said he had an affinity with Kings Beach having visited “every fortnight or weekend” during his childhood and was passionate about being true to the area.

“I’m 49 and I can remember we started going there when I was seven. It’s been a long time,” he said.

Interstate purchasers set on Royale Gold Coast’s rare northeast-facing absolute beachfront apartments

Royale Gold Coast’s rare northeast-facing absolute beachfront apartments

Strong interest in Royale Gold Coast from interstate and expat buyers continues as demand for unique lifestyle experiences and premium quality apartments is matched by Royale’s rare absolute-beachfront location and expansive five-star beach resort amenities.

Prestige property buyers are discovering that nothing else on the market compares to Royale Gold Coast’s stylish and spacious northeast-facing absolute-beachfront apartments with exclusive access to an unprecedented offering of luxurious beach lifestyle amenities.

Southern Sydney residents Joseph Sbarro and Metter Chin (a 2018 MasterChef Australia fan favourite) had been looking for the ultimate beach apartment between Main Beach and Broadbeach for many months before finding out about Royale planned for the prime beachfront corner site on Gold Coast’s elite Northcliffe Terrace.

“Royale’s location and the building design attracted us immediately. It has a northeast aspect which is exactly what we wanted as we’d prefer to look up the whole beach, not directly face the ocean,” Mr Sbarro said.

“Then we discovered Royale’s finishes are second to none. The developer has an excellent reputation and we admire the work of DKO Architecture and Mim Design interiors so we know Royale will be of high quality.”

“Certainly, Royale is going to offer us exactly the lifestyle we are looking for,” Mr Chin said.

“The beach lifestyle amenity is ideal for us. We haven’t seen any other development on a beachfront site like Royale, with such extensive resort-style amenities exclusively for residents. They are really just beautiful and of high quality.

“We were really impressed with the style and quality of the kitchens in Royale apartments, especially the high-end V-Zug appliances, and then there’s the private dining room and Cucina Chef’s kitchen in the Royale Residents Club on Level 1.”

Royale Gold Coast is a $395million premium residential apartment tower planned for an absolute beachfront site on Gold Coast’s exclusive Northcliffe Terrace, offering some of the most prestigious apartments and highest quality amenity currently available on the market in Australia.

The ultra-premium residential tower, being delivered by leading developer David Devine’s group DD Living, will be built on a prime 2251sqm northeast-facing corner site, comprising of 104 apartments across 38 levels with the Ground Floor and Level One dedicated to exclusive, five-star residential amenities inspired by the world’s best resort hotels.

Mr Devine has drawn on more than 30 years in property development and his belief in the Gold Coast as a premium lifestyle destination of international status to design Royale Gold Coast as the ultimate absolute beachfront address that will remain a legacy for the Devine family for many years to come.

Luxury apartment marketing agency TOTAL Property Group is managing the sales of Royale Gold Coast’s private residential apartments and reported a high level of confidence in Royale from apartment buyers, particularly purchasers from interstate and overseas who bought an apartment remotely.

“The pedigree of Royale’s developer David Devine and the quality of work produced by award-winning designers DKO Architecture and Mim Design gives apartment buyers the assurance that Royale Gold Coast will be delivered to the highest standards expected of the most prestigious homes,” TOTAL Property Group Managing Director and Royale Gold Coast Marketing Manager Adrian Parsons said.

“Joe Sbarro and Metter Chin were lucky to be holidaying on the Gold Coast and were so taken by the cosmopolitan lifestyle complementing the natural beauty of the coast and hinterland, they decided to purchase an apartment, but it had to fit their particular criteria.

“They wanted a northeast-facing beachfront apartment in a luxury residential building with high quality resort-style amenities. It’s not an easy list to mark off, however we’re pleased to say Royale Gold Coast offered them everything they wanted and a whole lot more.

“Royale’s purchasers are fully aware of how unique this apartment development is. Royale is the only absolute beachfront residential apartment building with such extensive five-star beach lifestyle resort amenities exclusive for residents and their guests.

“There is nothing else like it on the market – when you look at new developments, there just aren’t any other beachfront sites with the land space to provide the range of amenities like DD Living has at Royale.

“Royale’s architect and interior designer have really understood DD Living’s vision for the prime site and are delivering a signature collection of private residences that blend luxurious cosmopolitan elegance with Australia’s iconic laidback beach style to create the ultimate international beachfront residences.

“With limited available stock for brand new luxury beachfront apartments on the Gold Coast, interest in Royale Gold Coast has intensified.”

Royale Gold Coast, to be delivered by DD Living, will consist of 104 luxury apartments across 38 levels with exclusive five-star residential facilities at the absolute beachfront location of the corner of Markwell Avenue and Northcliffe Terrace, one of Gold Coast’s most desirable residential areas.

Construction has begun with demolition of the site’s old 14-level building now underway. The onsite sales centre has closed with a temporary location for private appointments only at Level 1 Capri on Via Roma, Isle of Capri in Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast.

Apartment prices begin at $1.865m for two-bedroom apartments and range up to $3.175m for three-bedroom apartments, $5.5m for the premium three and four-bedroom lower level “beach home” apartments and up to $12.6m for a full floor penthouse.

Royale Gold Coast’s world-class residential amenities include a grand entrance with concierge service and exclusive resort-style facilities, featuring a beach club on the elevated ground floor overlooking the beach with two swimming pools, daybeds and lounges, plus a wellness centre with a state-of-the-art gym, steam room and sauna. An exclusive residents’ club with private executive lounge, bar, private dining room, wine and whiskey lockers and a Cucina Chef’s kitchen is incorporated across Level 1, and a beachside café is located outside on the ground level.
