The crowning glory of the development in Club Esprit, a rooftop residents only rooftop and wellness space.
Fresh off the success of their nearby Flow and Awaken Residences, the Gold Coast developer S&S Projects has lodged plans for its latest coastal development.
They’re set to develop a mixed-use precinct at 217-227 Boundary Street Coolangatta, a few streets back from Rainbow Bay.
Above ground level retail will be two interconnected buildings designed by Cottee Parker Architects totalling 96 apartments.
The main residential tower will have 72-two bedroom apartments and 19-three bedroom apartments across 12 levels.
Located at the front of the precinct will be the more boutique tower of just eight levels, home to five three bedroom apartments and one four bedroom penthouse.
The crowning glory of the development in Club Esprit, a rooftop residents only rooftop and wellness space in the main tower.
The rooftop features a lap pool with day beds and spa and a full wellness centre with gym, sauna, steam room, ice bath and treatment room.
There’s a relaxation lawn, a communal kitchen with large dining space, bar, and private dining terrace with barbecue facilities which can be hired. There’s also two communal barbecue facilities next to a playground lawn.
S&S director Paul Gedoun says he has a fundamental belief in the southern Gold Coast, off the back of the exceptional success in Flow and Awaken.
“Our vision for our projects looks to enhance the community feel, creating dwellings that are in line with our liveable luxury trademark,” Gedoun says.
“We expect that this project will provide a positive impact in the local community with the amalgamation of several sites providing a master-planned approach to the area.
“We always strive to deliver high quality owner-occupier residences in prime locations, respecting the sense of community ownership and the surrounding environment and we’ve taken that vision to a new level with Esprit.”
S&S have seen great success at their nearby Awaken Residences at Rainbow Bay, where their recent $8.15 million sale of the two-level penthouse was the highest apartment sale recorded south of Mermaid Beach.
Only four of Awaken’s nine expansive whole floor apartments now remain, each set to go for upwards of $4 million each after more than $20 million in sales in the first five apartments to predominantly local and interstate buyers.
Flow Residences was named Australia’s fastest selling beachfront apartments following their $74 million sell-out in late October with apartments selling at an average $3.5 million. Construction is underway and is due for completion in 2022.
Esprit Design Statement
In the design statement submitted to the Gold Coast City Council, Cottee Parker Architects call Esprit “a unique architectural offering at Rainbow Bay, that is directly inspired by the rock pools and formations this part of the world is known for.
“The proposed development at 217-227 Boundary Street is a premium one of a kind development, comprising of two interconnected buildings across two street frontages.
“Surrounded by dramatic natural beauty, Esprit draws upon its context to create a design that encapsulates the desirable sub-tropical lifestyle of the Gold Coast. Boundary Street The building’s design is inspired by nearby Snapper Rocks and the pockets of tidal pools formed over time.
“Tinted glazing emulates the tranquil reflective waters, separated by striated layers of rock, represented by the facade’s horizontal banding. These horizontal elements layer across the building facade to form balcony edges that grow and build at the edges.
“Within these sheltered edges, landscaping grows to provide a small garden space to each unit, just like the pocket parks that are scattered throughout Coolangatta.”

Southport, Gold Coast apartment development site sells for $6 million
Sales activity for high-density-zoned development sites in Southport had been relatively subdued compared to the rest of the Gold Coast market
A Southport, Gold Coast development site – once planned for a 47-level tower – has sold at auction for $6 million.
It was bought by an undisclosed Gold Coast investor.
The 2430sq m site is at 114 Scarborough St, on the corner of Hicks St.
The receivers listing was sold by Colliers International who had five bidders compete.
It fetched above price expectations.
“Sales activity for high-density-zoned development sites in Southport has been relatively subdued this year compared to the rest of the Gold Coast market,” agent Steven King said.
“While sites in southern beachside markets continue to attract record prices, this sale demonstrates that Southport has begun its development site rebound,” he told the local paper.
The vacant site is within Southport’s designated Priority Development Area.
It was reported that a NSW-based company and Chinese investors had previously planned a 47-level apartment/hotel tower.
The DA approval was for a 47 level tower comprising of a 225 bed hotel and 264 (1, 2 and 3 bed) apartments
The site had cost $7.65 million, The Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
The site borders the Gold Coast City Council’s recently proposed “Towers Of Power” government and court precinct, a proposed $300 million development.

Mosaic Property Group lodge next Gold Coast apartment development after double Mermaid Beach sell-out
Mosaic Property boss Brook Monahan says the development will set a new benchmark of luxury living for an upmarket boutique building
The South East Queensland developer Mosaic Property Group are set for their next development on the Gold Coast.
It’s going to be their most boutique offering yet, with just nine whole floor apartments planned for the Burleigh Heads dress circle The Esplanade.
It will be located just up the road from their successful 47 apartment development Grace by Mosaic, which sold out in just a few months late last year.
The new apartments at 42 The Esplanade, dubbed The Heads in the submission to the Gold Coast City Council, will be designed by the architecture firm bureau^proberts and will replace the current brick apartment block built over five decades ago.
Mosaic Property boss Brook Monahan says the development will set a new benchmark of luxury living for an upmarket boutique building in Burleigh Heads.
“This is a genuinely world-class, one-of-a-kind address,” Monahan told Urban.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to create another outstanding address in Burleigh Heads, following the success of our first Burleigh project, Grace by Mosaic, which sold out in a matter of months.
“Our primary goal with 42 The Esplanade is to make it the most desirable, exclusive, and in-demand place to live on the entire beachfront in Burleigh.
Monahan says the the design draws on the areas’ natural beauty.
“The composition boasts honest materiality and elegant form,” Monahan says. It is singular in its execution while remaining authentic within the local context.”
In the design statement, bureau^proberts say the architectural design has a strong focus on subtropical building form, with a lightweight and breathable façade, lush green landscaping that continues from the ground level up and around the building, and an organic floor plate that pays homage to the undulating Burleigh headland.
Mosaic are already fielding enquiry from their VIP, pre-launch access list.
The Heads will feature a ground level pool, dining and lounge area. The apartments start on the ground level, the first complete with a large 130 sqm terrace with outdoor kitchen and landscaping.
Each apartment above will have balconies over 35 sqm.
Mosaic double-down in areas where they’ve seen great success. They had the same idea in the exclusive Mermaid Beach area, further north on the Gold Coast
After seeing success at Bela, Mosaic bought a site a few doors down on Peerless Avenue and created Dawn, which secured 95 per cent of its sales within its first two weeks of its pre-release to their database.
9 storey built form;
• 9 x 3-bedroom dwelling units;
• Two (2) levels of basement car parking with 29 resident spaces and 3 visitor spaces;
• Ample on-site landscaping and deep planting areas sufficient to contain large shade trees and balance the built form elements;
• Generous communal open space on the ground level and large private balconies for each apartment oriented to the beach;
• Pedestrian access directly off The Esplanade frontage; • Vehicle access to First Avenue via the adjoining development site, 4 First Avenue;
• Highly articulated building envelope with large boundary setbacks and separation to maintain residential amenity and privacy;
• Subtropical architectural design focused on enhancing the character of Burleigh Heads
The site at 42 The Esplanade gives new opportunity to acknowledge Burleigh’s beachfront appeal. The tower’s form is sensitive to its site and neighbourhood by responding to the existing Norfolk Pine trees, key aspect views and privacy requirements from its neighbours. The 9, single floor, vertically stacked coastal homes achieve stunning beachfront and headland views by opening the living areas out to the east, with the master bedroom placed prominently to give the residents an unrivalled northern aspect. The glazed envelope is protected down each side with horizontal batten screens which rhythmically move in and out as they rise up the building.
The slab edges move and fold around the building, reaching out to connect its inhabitants with the Esplanades’ parkland, then cutting in to open up views and angle breezes through the interior spaces. The movement of the floor plate is an homage to the undulating outcrops of the nearby headland.
Landscape is employed at the ground level to interact with the street and give space to the existing Norfolk Pine which has been previous been constrained on all edges. This allowance of space is replicated up the building with the southeast corners being cut back to give the tree its breathing space. Vegetation is continued up and around the building, creeping through the screens and with time, will drape and soften the building edges and contribute to the visual and micro-climatic coolth around the tower. As response to the beachfront climate, large outdoor living areas reduce the reliance on indoor conditioning. Breezes are mapped such that openings across and through the plan allow for effective cross ventilation of the interior

Rare Gold Coast Development Site on Offer
A masterplan development opportunity on the Gold Coast has become available through a joint marketing campaign with Colliers and CBRE.
The Seaview Avenue, Mermaid Beach property represents a 1.13ha development opportunity.
Colliers residential director Brendan Hogan said the site was “an unmatched opportunity to create a staged, mixed-use lifestyle precinct—with concept plans for 735 apartments across four towers”.
“Sites of this scale with wide-ranging potential are increasingly rare and we expect it will be highly sought after by residential and commercial developers alike,” he said.
With the serious lack of high-quality development opportunities south of Broadbeach, Seaview Avenue represented a fantastic opportunity for a developer to lock in their forward pipeline in one of the Gold Coasts most desirable suburbs, the agents said.
“This property represents a fantastic opportunity for a developer to deliver a staged lifestyle precinct commensurate with James Street and Gasworks in Brisbane supported by heightened demand from people to live, eat work and play within their own neighbourhood,” CBRE Gold Coast managing director Mark Witheriff said.
“The block sits prominently at the entrance to the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, features three street frontages and provides flexible planning provisions.
“The scarcity of the land available in Mermaid Beach presents developers with a remarkable opportunity to create a destination precinct in one of the Gold Coast’s premium suburbs.
“The property is within a 1km radius of the five major lifestyle and transport facilities in Broadbeach—The Star Casino, Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, The Oasis Shopping Centre, Gold Coast Convention Centre, and Broadbeach South G-Link Station.”
Colliers and CBRE will market the site via expressions of interest campaign that closes on September 1, 2021.
