Landmark $800 million Surfers Paradise apartment towers to be one of the Gold Coast’s biggest resort-style developments

The towers, designed by Rothelowman, will also have their own dedicated sky lounges occupying the entire 26th level, each with customised amenities

The Gold Coast is set to see one of its biggest ever residential resort-style developments.

The Shanghai-headquartered international property developer SPG Land, in a joint-venture with Australian developer Gordon Corp, has lodged plans for nearly 800 apartments to be built across three towers in the heart of Surfers Paradise.

They will be anchored by a new ground-level retail and dining plaza at the street level Ferny Avenue. The 1.15 hectare site will be bounded by Ferny Ave, one of Surfers main streets, as well as Surfers Paradise Boulevard, Pandanus Avenue and Ocean Avenue near the Surfers Paradise North light rail station.

The 38, 40 and 42 level towers will home 792 apartments and two swimming pools, one a suspended glass-bottom lap pool set on the 26th level, a Gold Coast first.

There will also be an infinity lagoon pool on the podium level.

Each tower will have its own podium level interconnected by walkways to create a unique elevated ‘seaside village’ for residents, with each tower podium offering separate resort amenities.

The towers, designed by Rothelowman, will also have their own dedicated sky lounges occupying the entire 26th level, each with customised amenities. Penthouse owners will have the added exclusivity of access to their own private rooftop gardens and recreation areas.

SPG Land chairman David Wang described the proposed Surfers Paradise development as a flagship project for the company that will create a sought-after destination in the city’s traditional tourism heart.

“This is a transformational development, not only for Surfers Paradise but for the Gold Coast more broadly,” Wang said. “We have had a long association with the Gold Coast, and it’s especially exciting that we have been able to enlist the talents of a remarkable local team to bring this project to fruition.

“Our development is not only destined to be an exciting new residential address, but a new public space that everyone can enjoy whether they’re taking a shortcut to the beach or settling in with friends in the plaza for a morning coffee or an alfresco lunch.”

Tim Gordon of Gordon Corp said the partnership would be a game changer for the Gold Coast.

“We are absolutely delighted to be involved in this project with SPG Land,” Gordon said. “This will be a landmark project for the Gold Coast that will be an internationally recognised destination.”

“We believe this is a project for its time, created by looking to the past to find what made Surfers Paradise such an iconic address for generations.”

Project Overview:

Tower 1: The heart of the proposed project, Tower 1 has been designed with a dynamic, social and youthful theme offering all residents access to the tower’s main pool and a separate lounge pool complete with a pool bar and all-day dining facilities, VIP dining area, a day-care centre, a barbecue area and a resident’s gym and yoga garden with the sky lounge featuring co- working spaces, bar, indoor and outdoor seating lounge, and an interactive sky gym.

Tower 2: Tower 2 will offer a more peaceful environment suited to families and will have its own indoor and outdoor kids’ zone, while the sky lounge will boast a sky gym, plus yoga and spa facilities.

Tower 3: The third tower will deliver a level of luxury and sophistication sought by the mature lifestyle buyer with the podium encompassing its own café, breakfast and dining terraces, a library and meeting rooms while the sky lounge will feature the city’s first suspended lap pool, a cigar lounge and wine bar.
