The idea was to set a new bar for luxury living on the Gold Coast and to create a truly boutique offering
The Esplanade is one of the Gold Coast’s most sought-after strips of beachfront real estate, stretching over 1.5 kilometres across the beachfront, from the entry to Main Beach to the north, to the south where it becomes Northcliffe Terrace.
There’s been little in the way of apartment development in recent years. There’s Soul, one of the area’s most well-known apartment buildings which is approaching 10 years built, and Meriton’s 400 plus apartments at Ocean, currently under construction.
But now the dress circle street is set for something completely different to what has been seen in decades.
The AU, a collection of just 12 exclusive full-floor oceanview sky homes and two opulent three-level penthouses, is set to launch, giving the strip an incomparable offering.
The idea was to capture that next level of luxury, and create a truly boutique product.
“We wanted to elevate beachfront living on the Gold Coast with a modern classic and timeless design,” ASF Group Marketing Director Daniel Fang says.
“Its central location and opulent design draws parallels to that of the Opera Residences in Sydney’s Circular Quay, just with the beach on your doorstep rather than Sydney Harbour,” Fang added.
There was a conscious effort from the team not to replicate the creamy sandy vibe that the Gold Coast apartment style is typically known for.
ASF enlisted the expertise of the Sydney-based interior design legend Greg Natale to craft the interiors, something no other Gold Coast apartment development can boast.
The apartments will have the finest finishes, with natural stone bench tops, and gold fixtures and finishes throughout.
Archidiom put the plans together for the 19-storey tower, with a facade made almost entirely of golden glass. It allows each apartment to have clear panoramic views of the Surfers Paradise beach.
Each full-floor apartment will offer three bedrooms and a multi-purpose room, or four bedrooms, each with ensuites, studies, stone kitchens, and an open plan living and dining area. Furthermore, each sky home will have a 16m frontage directly facing the Pacific Ocean and beach
The resident amenity is located on podium level, with a gym and residents’ lounge space, which sit beside the infinity pool that looks out across the sand and ocean.
The podium level also features a barbecue and dining facilities, along with a sauna, ideal for unwinding after a few laps in the pool.
The display suite is up and ready for viewing for prospective buyers, with the interiors created in the style of the actual residences. That’s located in the Soul Boardwalk, just a few minutes away from the actual site of The AU.
