The Sydney developer Weiya Holdings is set to embark on one of its most impressive Gold Coast projects in 2022.
They’ve submitted plans for Aalto, a 38-level luxury high-rise development on their recently acquired $30 million block of land at 75-79 Garfield Terrace, right on Northcliffe Beach.
Conrad Gargett, who handled Weiya’s first Gold Coast apartment project, DE-LUXE, the apartment redevelopment of the 1930s cinema and Old Burleigh Theatre Arcade in Burleigh Heads, have again been commission to create the project.
They say 75-79 Garfield Terrace offers a unique opportunity to connect with the pristine coastline of Queensland’s Gold Coast, through an uncompromising and bespoke place of luxury high-rise living.
“Situated directly on Northcliffe Beach, the distinctive building form draws from the surrounding Queensland vernacular, with respect to subtropical design, expansive outdoor living and a robust material palette,” Conrad Gargett’s submission to the Gold Coast City Council read.
“The relationship with nature is expressed in the building’s unique curvature and a harmony of flowing lines which envelope the tower form. The articulated edges display a natural rhythm comprised of soft corners and long sweeping forms, inspired by the inimitable movement of drifting sands and water along the coastline.”
Aimed at the higher end owner-occupier or holiday maker, 40 of the Aalto’s 64 apartments are three-bedders, with just five two-bedroom apartments on the lower levels.
As the building rises there are 18 four-bedroom apartments, a number of them full floor. But the crowning jewel is the penthouse, which spans a massive 1,830 sqm, one of the biggest apartments on the Gold Coast. That is set to have five bedrooms its own cinema room, a gym, an indoor and outdoor kitchen, and a 15 metre swimming pool.
Resident amenity is located across two levels from the upper ground floor, which has two resort-style lap pools, one facing the ocean and one facing the building next door, as well as barbecue and communal dining areas.
Above is the fitness centre with a gym, a wellness centre with four outdoor hold and cold baths and a yoga room. There will also be a wine lounge and private dining area, and a library meeting-style space.
Landscape architect Lat27 handled the landscaping, with the focus of the landscape design to create a high quality contemporary landscape that responds to the architecture and creates a variety of opportunities for interaction, activity and gathering, each influenced by the coastal lifestyle of the community and context.
Conrad Gargett wanted the lower levels of the building to connect with the surrounding area.
“The design approach explores humble notions of openness and connectedness with a tower structure that touches the earth lightly,” the architecture firm stated.
“The tower’s expansive podium is purposefully unenclosed, providing light-filled outdoor spaces which invite the natural elements of the coast deep within the building footprint.
“The podium levels are conceived as a series of modestly scaled common spaces, designed to intimately connect with the ocean views and enhance a resort like experience based around, exercise, leisure, outlook and community.”
Patrick Pancur is handling the sales and marketing of the project, with a 2022 launch expected.
Garfield Terrace is set for a wave of luxury high-rise apartments in 2022, with the also Sydney-based Iris Capital set to lodge plans next door to Aalto at 73 Garfield Terrace. They bought the Premiere apartment tower a few months ago.
