Surfers Paradise set for 35 whole-floor apartment tower

Surfers Paradise 2

Just 200 metres from the beach, the yet to be named tower has been designed by Plus Architecture, who say the design was inspired by the “dynamic theatre of the ocean.”

Surfers Paradise is set for a 38-level tower which will home just 35 full-floor apartments.

Local developer Ayrton Mansi, who was set to develop the $115 million Opal at Broadbeach before onselling the project six years ago, alongside Freddie Sheene, have submitted the plans for 17-19 First Avenue, an 809 sqm double corner block on the border of Surfers and Broadbeach.

“Plus Architecture has designed Nineteen First Avenue to consciously represent the natural movement and rhythm of the ocean,” the Plus team advised in their submission to the Gold Coast City Council.

“The facade transforms from the active lower levels to the calmer tower form and creates a soft soliloquy of movement and rhythm.”

Each apartment will have 286 sqm internal living area and a further 30 sqm of outdoor balconies. They will have three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

“One single, generous apartment occupies each of the residential floors which are sculpted to provide engaging and spectacular views,” Plus noted.

Levels two and three will home the resident recreation, with everything from an infinity edge pool, gym, and sauna, to work from home facilities including a number of booths and a conference room.

It’s a continuation of the move toward high impact, but low density apartment towers sweeping the Gold Coast, with high demand coming from high-net-worth individuals who want more than just a holiday rental apartments.

The tower is similar to Myst, a 33-level tower slated just 60 metres down the road, closer to the beach.

Myst, to be developed by Orenda Projects and also designed by Plus, will see 46 apartments created, 45 of those being three-bedroom apartments, which, apart from the three whole-floor sub-penthouses, will span half of a floor.

The top two levels will be dedicated to a two-level penthouse, the only four-bedroom apartment in the building. That will have its own private terrace with a swimming pool.

The resident amenity will be located on the level four podium, which will home an infinity edge pool and pool lounge area, a separate spa, and a barbecue and dining space.

The level five mezzanine will have the gym, complete with a sauna and a steam room. There will also be a residents lounge in the 27th level.

Two pools across the road from Surfers Paradise Beach: The extensive amenity driving buyers to Pacific One

apartment tower Pacific One

Central Equity feel like they’ve nailed the brief of their buyers wants and needs at their first Gold Coast apartment tower, Pacific One.

When planning the development, which has evolved over the years, the prominent Melbourne developer expected the majority of buyers to be interested in two things; the extensive resident amenity, and the prime location near the beach.

Central Equity Executive Director Karl Kutner says their expectation has been matched so far from buyer feedback.

“The extensive amenity we’ve put together within the building, paired with the prime location just across the road from the beach, has been a big drawcard for buyers so far in the project,” Kutner says.

“Residents essentially have the choice of taking advantage of our onsite pool or gym, while also having the option of hitting the sand, the best of both worlds.”

Kutner says the demand, and expectation, is now a lot higher for this level of amenity than it once was.

“Once upon a time it was just a pool and a gym within the developments for residents. Now it’s all about how you can make the development as liveable as possible.”

Pacific One will offer over 2,000 sqm amenity, some of that dedicated just to buyers of the Sky Home and Penthouse collections, which will be officially launched later this year.

The expansive Pacific Club on level two is the main hub for the facilities. Residents will enter the tower through a two level lobby with mezzanine opening to the lushly landscaped terrace.

The main pool has a spa and children’s pool and is surrounded by poolside cabanas. A number of barbecue areas have been integrated into the landscaped areas and will be great for entertaining.

For the wellness conscious a second pool raised within the gardens with a waterfall edge will be ideal for lap swimming. There is also a spacious poolside gym, complemented by a yoga studio and sauna.

The resident’s lounge includes indoor and outdoor entertaining areas as well as a private dining room that can double up as a boardroom.

Central Equity’s plans for the prime site have evolved since securing the first development opportunity back in 2007. They were plotting a more boutique block, but as they picked up the neighbouring sites to make a 3,259 sqm corner block, much more befitting of a higher density tower.

Pacific One is located on the doorstep of the Gold Coast’s iconic Oceanway, a 36-kilometre stretch from The Spit in the north, and to Point Danger in the south.

Luxury global brands and Australian retailers line the nearby Pacific Fair, a shopping and dining destination that is just three G-link light rail stops away.

Pacific One has been popular with a diverse mix of buyers, given the varying configurations on offer, a rarity in most of the apartment developments near the Surfers Paradise sand.

“There’s not many projects at the moment in this location that offer one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments,” Kutner suggests, adding that the market has been starved of this type of product.

Why Siera Group chose Chevron Island for Tapestry

Chevron Island ,Tapestry

To make the move from one property market to another is a huge step for any developer.

It often brings an element of uncertainty and unpredictability.

But the approach and due diligence by Siera Group’s Founder and Managing Director Brent Thompson will be one that will breed optimism over pessimism in to the market, compared to other developers who have been jumping head first into one of Australia’s most in demand pockets for the last two years and are now facing challenges.

The Brisbane-based boutique developer have not only taken on a new project type, but a completely new location, by venturing down to the Gold Coast to tackle the booming apartment sector.

Thompson, who has a highly regarded CV as a board member at the UDIA, as well being a prominent developer around Brisbane’s inner-ring for many years, spent six to 12 months splitting his time between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, understanding everything about the local market, what people were buying, and what was being developed.

The result is Tapestry, a 22-level arts-inspired apartment tower, designed to be in keeping with Chevron Island’s growing standing at the cultural arts hub of the Gold Coast.

“What drew us to this site for Tapestry was really Chevron Island itself and the fantastic community that is literally on the doorstep of Surfers Paradise, in the heart of the Gold Coast,” Thompson said.

“Chevron Island is a tight knit community with a high street full of cafes, restaurants and boutiques, as well as nearby links to HOTA, the home of the arts precinct, which is just across the Green Bridge and just a short walk from Tapestry.

“After all the research and understanding Chevron Island as a whole, it really felt like it was the perfect place to deliver a project like Tapestry, where we’ve created this phenomenal amount of amenity and beautiful residences that locals will be able to move into and downsize.”

Thompson said what makes makes Chevron Island so great, and not just the community piece, is the locality and how easy it is to access everything on the Gold Coast from Chevron Island.

“We’re only a short, flat walk into Surfers Paradise, where you’ve got the beautiful golden beaches as well as an immense amount of shopping and retail precinct.

“We’re seeing a great deal of gentrification though Surfers Paradise, as well as Chevron Island, as we’re seeing this increased densification of these areas.”

Tapestry has been designed by the local architecture firm BDA, whose brief was to merge art with architecture.

The result is a striking building of 113 apartments, featuring a mixture of vertical blade walls and horizontal slab edges which respond to available views and natural light.

The local aspect in the creation of Tapestry was one of the key focuses for Thompson.

Aligning with the Gold Coast City Council’s efforts to make Surfers Paradise an arts and cultural hub, Siera also engaged local artist Tania Blanchard to create a piece of artwork that will hang in the lobby when completed.

Paradiso Place set to redefine living – Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast

Paradiso Place set to redefine living, Surfers Paradise GC

Locals are dominating the apartment sales at Paradiso Place, the new premium residential precinct planned for an entire city block in northern Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, with Tower 1 of the three-tower mixed-use development instantly appealing to a couple who purchased two apartments.

Locals Martyn Shedd and Amy Degenhart purchased two apartments; one to occupy and a second apartment as an investment to accommodate visiting family and friends.

It’s a huge vote of confidence in Paradiso Place from the couple, who are directors of an award-winning architectural firm specialising in the urban design space.

After many months of due diligence, it was Paradiso Place that ticked off their long list of criteria for the ultimate oceanside apartments.

The $800million Paradiso Place is a landmark development of distinction being developed by SPG Land on an 11,483 sqm whole city block site between Surfers Paradise Boulevard and Ferny Avenue at the northern end of Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, consisting of three residential towers sharing a ground-level retail and dining plaza and a level one podium with extensive five-star, resort-style amenities.

“As an urban designer and architect, we have a full understanding of placemaking, so we are highly sensitive to the visual environment and what sets Paradiso Place apart for us is the way SPG Land is creating a village, not just apartment buildings,” Martyn and Amy said.

“We respond to the way spaces work and how people relate to them. This notion of living close to amenity you can walk to is important to us and the facilities provided at Paradiso Place are one of the main reasons why we chose to live there.

“The whole development has been really well designed to support lifestyles of the future. To have access to five-star resort amenities, a retail and dining precinct on the ground level, plus a whole floor within our own building dedicated to co-working spaces have been some of the driving factors behind our decision to purchase two apartments.

“The 2.95m ceiling height was another drawcard. We know how important the vertical space is and the floor-to-ceiling windows really capitalise on that. Not only does it feel more spacious, but there are practical aspects too, like extra cupboard space.

“Paradiso Place will also have a porte cochère and a separate surf entry, which were items on our wish list that we didn’t expect to find.

“We have no doubt that our apartment at Paradiso Place will be the right fit for us.”

Details on the two penthouses are yet to be released.

Luxury apartment marketing agency TOTAL Property Group is managing the apartment sales of Paradiso Place and has reported strong interest from a wide range of local buyers, along with interstate and overseas purchasers either relocating to, or investing in the Gold Coast.

“We are predicting continued growth for the Gold Coast this year with higher buyer and rental demand driving the market,” TOTAL Property Group Managing Director and Paradiso Place Marketing Manager Adrian Parsons said.

“The Gold Coast lifestyle is attracting a large migrating population as well as investors with their eye on hot property destinations now that international travel has returned.

“The apartments at Paradiso offer incredible value and are an affordable option for a premium apartment close to the beach with ocean views.

“SPG Land is setting new standards for lifestyle residential developments and has given a great deal of consideration to creating highly desirable living spaces with apartments in Tower 1 having ocean views and market-leading 2.95m ceiling heights in the living areas and 2.65m in the kitchen and bathrooms.

“The extensive amenity provided at Paradiso Place and in each of the three towers is indicative of SPG Land’s commitment to world-class innovation and revolutionary design of smart, efficient residential homes that offer high quality lifestyles.

“Paradiso Place presents an exceptional residential opportunity for apartment buyers looking to own a luxury apartment close to the beach, all with ocean views and the highest levels of amenity and walkability.”

More information on apartments at Tower 1 can be discovered at the expansive $4m Paradiso Place Sales Gallery that includes two full-scale apartments, a spacious grand foyer showcasing design features of Tower 1’s lobby and an impressive 2.5-metre scale model of the three-tower development.

A 60sqm immersion room and virtual tours of the Paradiso Place development enable purchasers to experience the views, location and SPG Land’s vision for Paradiso Place, while free onsite parking offers purchasers the opportunity to spend time exploring the full-sized apartments, quality of luxuriously-styled finishes and extensive amenities throughout Paradiso Place.
