Mali Residences offered 55 contemporary residences in one, two and three-bedroom configurations, with apartments priced from $435,000.

The 16th floor penthouse fetched $4,295,000.

The space has been formed by a series of intertwined components – an open lobby, podium parking featuring a generous green foliage wall facing north, lower residential with five units per floor, a break in the built form to showcase an entire floor dedicated to lifestyle and recreational boasting views of the sand and the water along with upper residential of three units per floor.

Located on the ninth floor is a range of leisure facilities, including a resort-style pool, sauna, gym and residents’ lounge.

With the easing of Stage 2 restrictions last Friday on the Gold Coast, the Open House opportunity has arisen.

GCOH bookings are required via eventbrite.

Latest Kirra Beach, Coolangatta apartment tower

Kirra Beach

The new tower at 39-41 McLean Street, which will see more affordable stock than what’s currently on offer, will rise 19 levels and home 63 apartments

Kir​ra Beach has emerged as one of the hottest spots on the Gold Coast in the last 12 months.

There’s been a number of boutique apartment projects, targeting the high-end owner-occupier market, with little in the way of more affordable stock.

The new tower at 39-41 McLean Street, which will see more affordable stock than what’s currently on offer, will rise 19 levels and home 63 apartments, made up of 28 two-beds, starting from 85 sqm of internal space, and 35 three-bedroom apartments which start from 110 sqm.

It sits next door to the old Jazzland Dance Palais which Melbourne developer BeckDev are seeking to turn in to apartments.

Crowning the new McLean Street project will be a rooftop pool, gym, lounge and kitchen area, and indoor and outdoor dining spaces. The development will be anchored at street-level by a cafe.

BDA Architecture, who handled the design, said in their submission to the Gold Coast City Council that the attributes of the site suggest that it is an ideal location for affordable residential accommodation.

“The design proposal is to create a building form that accentuates the junction of McLean and Musgrave Street providing elements that welcome people to the heart of Coolangatta,” the submission by lead architect Christopher Cumming read.

The development was submitted by a company linked to John Kearney, who is a director at the Southport-based building firm Greyburn. Currently on the site is the disused surf shop, Sunhouse.

Kirra Beach has been one of the hottest markets on the Gold Coast since December last year when Miles Residences, the development by KTQ, was launched. The $450 project, part of the redevelopment of the iconic Kirra Beach Hotel, snappily sold out stage one, with future stages to be released early next year.

The quick sell-out of Joe Adsett’s Rockpool by Rainbow Bay quickly followed, without any need for marketing. Marquee Developments Partners also didn’t need any marketing to sell out their SOL Kirra Beach recently.

Hirsch & Faigen’s luxury Emerson development on Musgrave Street has been in high demand, with the luxury, mostly whole-floor, development now over 60 per cent sold.

Cr​u Collective also has a luxury project around the corner, with SUR Kirra Beach apartments selling for over $4 million each.

There are a few opportunities in the pipeline though for more affor​dable apartments in the area.

Just a few doors down from the new tower will be Melbourne developer BeckDev’s Palais Coolangatta, a redevelopment of the old Jazzland Dance Palais that has stood on a 2,355 sqm McLean Street site since the 1930s.

That will see175 one, two and three-bedroom apartments built, as well as resident facilities and a street-level plaza with retail space.

Also in the area on Eden Avenue will be the development by joint venture partners Steer Developments, Kingbella, and Capdev, who are seeking to build 94 apartments as well as a handful of two-storey beach houses.

S&S Projects plan for rare Palm Beach apartment hotel development, St Isla

Palm Beach apartment

Town planner Urbis said that St Isla will provide a suitable point-of-different to boutique large three and four-bedroom apartment products that are being lodged in recent months

Palm Beach, one of the Gold Coast’s hottest apartment markets, is set for a new unique project just off the beach.

S&S Projects, led by the surfer developer Paul Gedoun, is expanding out of Rainbow Bay, where it’s had back to back successes with its three latest apartment developments.

They’ve just submitted plans for an $88 million mixed-use development at 1128 Gold Coast Highway, a mix of 150 hotel rooms underneath 40 two and three-bedroom apartments. It will replace the popular dining venue, The Collective.

Dubbed St Isla, the project has been designed by S&S’s go-to architecture firm, Cottee Parker, who designed Awaken, Esprit and Flow, in Rainbow Bay. Awaken and Flow are both sold out, with Esprit soon to follow suit.

St Isla will rise 23 levels one row back from the beach and will have 10 two-bedroom apartments and 30 three-bedroom apartments which start from level 12 upwards.

The two-bedroom apartments start from 94 sqm internal with a 14 sqm balcony. The three-bedders have internal living areas from 147 sqm, with a 33 sqm balcony.

There are two amenity levels on the first and second floor. Level one will home a function room with a kitchen and a bar, a full day spa and a gym.

Up a level will be the pool, with an adjoining cafe and beach bar. The ground level will also turn in to a precinct itself, with a cafe and dining tenancy space.

Town planner Urbis said that St Isla will provide a suitable point-of-different to boutique large three and four-bedroom apartment products that are being lodged in recent months.

“With varied sizes and density, these units will vary in price with an intent to attract owner occupiers, first home buyers and down-sizers,” Urbis added.

They put together an economics benefit package, showing how much St Isla would have a positive impact on both the employment and value added to the wider economy.

“Construction associated with the proposed development is expected to add a total of $64.2 million to the economy and support 240 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs per annum during the construction period,” Urbis predict.

The hotel is expected to bring over 76,000 visitors to Palm Beach.

Construction is expecting to take around two years, and start, pending planning approval, in Q4 2022.

Gold Coast apartment insights

New apartment sales on the Gold Coast also hit an all-time high, officially making 2021 the hottest market since Urbis began monitoring the sector

Ray White Sur​fers Paradise Managing Director And​rew Bell reckons the Gold Coast market is now level pegging with other markets in Australia.

“With a higher degree of owner occupiers now in apartments, we are now on level pegging with other markets in Australia and it will contribute to the old boom and bust scenario on the Gold Coast,” Bell says.

Further reports from property consultancy firm Urbis are showing stock is tightening even further.

In September they advised there would be only four months worth of stock if there were to be no new project released, and based on current demand. That figure has been revised to just over two months of stock.

New apartment sales on the Gold Coast also hit an all-time high, officially making 2021 the hottest market since Urbis began monitoring the sector.

The number of apartment sales for the September quarter surged to 690, bringing the total of new apartments sold on the Gold Coast in the first nine months of this year to 1,882.

Owner-occupiers continue to account for the majority of sales, totalling 61 per cent in the September quarter.

But now the dress circle street is set for something completely different to what has been seen in decades.
