Aniko Group secure 60% of sales in newest Hope Island apartment development, Athena Residences

The developer Aniko Group has continued to see huge success on Hope Island on the Gold Coast.

Since launching Athena Residences three weeks ago, Aniko has secured over 60 per cent, some $55 million, of sales at the $125 million Sickle Avenue development, with local owner-occupiers making up most of the purchasers.

Investors are continuing to creep back in to the market. They made up a third of sales.

The quick sales come following their sell-out of its $140 million development, No. 1 Grant Avenue, located across the road.

“We are humbled and encouraged by this continued demand and support for our luxury waterfront apartment living in Hope Island, Aniko Group founder George Mastrocostas said.

“We are fortunate to be able to meet the market’s expectations once again with an exceptional collection of high-end homes at Athena Residences.

“Our sales program has steadily continued its pace from 1 Grant Avenue to Athena Residences unabated, which serves to confirm our deep-rooted belief in Hope Island as the leading residential precinct for luxury waterfront downsizer living,” Mastrocostas added.

Set on the opposite site to its No. 1 Grant Avenue, Athena Residences will have16 one-bedroom apartments, 153 two-bedroom apartments and an exclusive release of 16 luxury three-bedroom Skyhomes, which will range in size from 170 sqm to 260 sqm.

Aniko are seeking to get private marina berths approved from the council for residents.

Mastrocostas said the key drivers for the downsizer trend has been the opening of the Hope Island Marketplace shopping precinct, as well as the pending Coomera Connector, which Mastrocostas says he has no doubt  have really made Hope Island a sought-after, central location in which to live.

“Notwithstanding we have tapped into a growing cohort of downsizers by creating a luxury, affordable waterfront apartment living that previously was lacking in the Hope Island precinct.”

Aniko are working on plans for another Hope Island development of waterfront townhouses on a recently acquired site nearby on Grant Avenue.

Peter Malady, Sales and Marketing Director at Aniko Group, said it’s incredible to see the strength of the local market which has just been superseded by interstate interest in recent months.

“Local downsizers and first home buyers have a strong appreciation of Hope Island’s value and aren’t going to sit idly by when a premium waterfront product such as this hits the market.”

“Athena Residences is a unique product in that it provides an adaptive layout typically unseen in apartment floorplans, allocating additional space to allow for the choice of working from home, plus the resort style facilities and the abundance of open space and greenery which covers a massive 60% of the site, Malady said.

The first release of Athena Residences encompasses 122 units – including two-bedroom and study and three-bedroom Skyhomes – ranging in price from $479,000 to $1.5 million.

Inside Cru Collective’s new luxury Kirra Beach apartment development, Sur Kirra Beach

The resident amenity occupies a whole level, and will home an oceanfront pool, a beachfront fitness centre, and a sauna

There’s a fresh opportunity for the luxury Gold Coast apartment buyer, with the local developer Cru Collective launching sales for Sur Kirra Beach, their hotly anticipated boutique residential tower on the Coolangatta dress circle Musgrave Street.

Cru, led by managing director Chris Bolger, are offering just the 10 apartment across the 13-level tower which has been designed by BDA Architecture. BDA was inspired by the longboards that established the Kirra surfing culture in the 1960s.

The unique site pocket at 2 Musgrave Street allows for a distinct floor plan that is fin like in shape, capturing views from every angle of the property.

Crowning the development will be a two-level penthouse.

Bolger expects buyers to be predominantly locals.

“The location is iconic and we have an extensive waiting list of people from the immediate area or those that have holidayed in Kirra or rainbow Bay for years,” Bolger says.

“It’s a very nostalgic location for loyal Kirra fans.”

Apartments in Sur, meaning above and beyond, will span 300 sqm apartments will have three ensuited bedrooms, including a huge master wing with walk-in wardrobe, two living areas, a kitchen with butler’s pantry, wine cellar, and a dry bar with built in ice maker.

Each apartment will have their own private foyer, direct from the lift.

Balconies have been oriented to face east, to capture views from Rainbow Bay to Stradbroke Island, with the rear balconies to look back to the hinterland, offering views that will never be built out.

Cru Collective decided to refine the already approved plans, which saw the levels, and in turn apartments, reduced.

Bolger said the size was dropped to make Sur more in-keeping with Kirra Beach.

“At the heart of Cru Collective’s design approach is the desire to create exceptional living spaces in extraordinary locations that meet the expectation of the sophisticated buyer,” Bolger said.

“By reducing the volume of apartments and raising ceiling heights of the original plans for the Kirra site we will deliver spaciousness and opulence that is typically reserved for high-end standalone houses.

Prices start from $4 million, with the price yet to be established for the penthouse.

The resident amenity occupies a whole level, and will home an oceanfront pool, a beachfront fitness centre, and a sauna.

“Sur Kirra Beach is our latest commitment to always producing premium quality homes that substitute the conventional high density apartment trope for a boutique approach to vertical living,” Bolger added.

“Over the past few months since we acquired the site, we have already received an astounding amount of local and national interest in what will be a striking addition to the Kirra beachfront. It’s such a unique and iconic location.”

Cru Collective is launching Sur Kirra Beach with a view to commencing construction in early 2022.

About the developer

The local Gold Coast-based Cru Collective have a proven track record, selling out Acqua in Palm Beach and Arcadia Rise in Currumbin.

The award-winning developer has more than a decade of experience in residential and commercial property across south-east Queensland, currently delivering a development pipeline totalling $150 million in projects.

Sur Kirra Beach follows the sell-out and completion of Cru Collective’s $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North apartment project.

Monaco, Polites Plan $100m Runaway Bay Tower

Monaco

The residential market at Runaway Bay is heating up with plans for a $100-million, 31-storey tower and three villas filed by Monaco Property Group and Polites Property Group.

The joint venture lodged the plans for the slim 3116sq m site that sits between a series of towers on the Broadwater at 13-15 Bayview Street.

The developers are taking advantage of the booming Gold Coast market where unit prices have increased 9.9 per cent in a year, according to Domain.

The residential project follows Polites’ Cabana tower in Palm Beach, a joint venture with Ignite Projects.

The group is headed by identical twins Alex and Marcus Polites, the grandsons of the late Adelaide property tycoon Con Polites.

Monaco is headed by Jonathan Grasso and Jay McPhee, who also have connections in the property world.

This includes McPhee Distributions Services and Industrial development with its $1-billion portfolio, and Grasso’s previous projects with Belvue Property Group, which he founded.

The retro Palm Springs inspired design by Plus Architecture includes 31 whole-floor apartments, with three or four bedrooms, on a 323sq m floor plate plus three 510sq m detached homes.

There are also two swimming pools, a sauna and wellness facilities planned for the site, which is 20m wide and 155m long.

Polites managing director Alex Polites said the suburb was being reinvigorated by new developments and buyers looking for a coastal lifestyle.

“Runaway Bay’s development history dates back to the 1970s and it set the benchmark for residential apartment living on the Gold Coast in the 1980s and 1990s,” he said

“Since then, the Gold Coast has evolved into a sophisticated city envied not just as a holiday destination but for its coastal lifestyle.”

“The sophisticated newcomer to Runaway Bay” – Gold Coast suburb set for first apartment development in 30 years

Runaway Bay

Plus Architecture, who are handling the design, call Belvue “the sophisticated newcomer to Runaway Bay.”

The Gold Coast’s Runaway Bay is set to see its first residential tower to be developed in the idyllic Gold Coast waterfront enclave for almost three decades.

Belvue, French word for beautiful view, is set to be developed in a joint venture between Monaco Property Group and Polites Property Group, who has just lodged a development for the project.

The luxury tower on a 3,116 sqm site at 13-15 Bayview Street, has been designed for the owner-occupier, with just whole floor apartments.

The 31 apartments, which have four bedrooms each (or three and a multi-purpose room), will each take up a level of the 31 storey building, which is reminiscent of a resort-style hotel, without the mass number of rooms.

Plus Architecture, who are handling the design, call Belvue “the sophisticated newcomer to Runaway Bay.”

“It’s an elevated lifestyle with resort-style amenities,” Plus advise in their design statement.

Upon entry to the waterfront site will be three luxury detached villas, each spanning two levels with three bedrooms and a private outdoor terrace area.

The tower is set at the rear of the block, past the luxury, resort-style swimming pool and landscaping by FORM Landscape Architects.

There will be a gym next to the main pool, as well as a barbecue pavilion, while past the tower is a second pool, overlooking the water. There’s also a sauna and a steam room, as well as poolside cabanas, and a private terrace leading down to the beach.

The tower is targeting the owner-occupier, with each apartment having 246 sqm of internal space, with at least 23 sqm of external area. There are two balconies per apartment, one off the kitchen, living and dining area, the other accessed on the other side of the apartment.

Runaway Bay

“Runaway Bay’s development history dates back to the 1970s and it set the benchmark for residential apartment living on the Gold Coast in the 1980s and 1990s,” Alex Polites said.

“But since then, the Gold Coast has evolved into a sophisticated city envied not just as a holiday destination but for its coastal lifestyle. Now, finally, the time has come for the reinvigoration of Runaway Bay as one of the Gold Coast’s premier waterfront residential addresses.

“All of the 34 luxury residences in Belvue will offer a new design benchmark and the ultimate in sophisticated coastal living.”

Jonathan Grasso said Belvue had been meticulously designed to capture the most amazing views the Gold Coast and to create a private resort-style atmosphere on one of the Gold Coast’s quietest and most exclusive Broadwater enclaves.

“Our team has spent a lot of time designing and curating what we believe will be a highly unique luxurious residential offering for this pristine part of the Coast,” Grasso added.
