Plans have been lodged for a 21-level apartment tower at 3671 Main Beach Parade, on the sought-after beachfront side, which will have just half and whole-floor apartments
The developer push for more high-end apartment towers on the Gold Coast is set to continue at Main Beach.
Plans have been lodged for a 21-level apartment tower at 3671 Main Beach Parade, on the sought-after beachfront side, which will have just half and whole-floor apartments.
The application was lodged by local hotelier Bruce Donnachy, who runs the Arundel Tavern.
The half-floor apartments will run from levels three to nine. Level nine upwards will have just whole-floor three bedroom apartments, with 328 sqm of internal space and 80 sqm of external balconies.
Crowning the DBI-designed development is the two-level penthouse, spanning some 670 sqm of internal living space and a further 100 sqm of outdoor. The half-floor apartments will have 191 sqm of internal space.
The resident amenity is located on level 10, where there will be a gym, multi-purpose room, swimming pool with deck, and a barbecue area.
DBI’s brief was to design a contemporary coastal luxury 5-star residential apartment building that is timeless.
“The timeless architecture will set a new benchmark in the Main Beach Precinct,” DBI advise in the submissions to the Gold Coast City Council.
“The architecture of the proposed luxury residential development is composed of simple curved and linear forms, white concrete spandrels, a textured and timeless material palette of travertine stone and timber screening, creating a rich and layered coastal effect.
“A series of planters on the facade add a layering and softening of the built form, reinforcing the importance of sub-tropical design.”
The subject site sits at the eastern edge of the core Main Beach precinct.
“This project offers the opportunity to design a luxury residential apartment building that caters for the owner occupier,” DBI’s statement read.
The high-end development trend is sweeping the Gold Coast, as stock continues to tighten as the luxury owner-occupier demand continues to rise.
Nearby on Main Beach Parade is La Mer, one of the few developments in Main Beach currently selling which also targets the luxury owner-occupier.
La Mer comprises just 29 apartments across its 34 levels, start from 307 sqm. It is being pitched itself as the ultimate downsizer development by NPA Projects. “Transitioning from a house to an apartment has never been easier,” NPA advise.
Only a handful of apartments remain.
Broadbeach is seeing more of an uptick in the luxury owner-occupier space than some of the surrounding Gold Coast suburbs.
Little Projects recently launched Aperture, which will have just 29 apartments across the 35 levels, with 26 full-floor apartments with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three parking spaces.
They start from $2.1 million, with every level of the 120 metre building offering uninterrupted ocean views from the balcony off the living area.
Ferro Chow Architects took a similar approach to the downsizer trend, offering half and full-floors at a prime corner Broadbeach site opposite the bowls club.
The 46-level tower will have 59 apartments, with half-floor apartments taking up the first half of the tower, then full-floor apartments from there up.
The smallest apartments have three bedrooms and a multi-purpose room. There are 36 three-bedroom apartments, 22 four-bedroom apartments, and a special penthouse toward the point end of the building.

Construction commences on the final stage of The Peninsula Hope Island master-planned community
Developer ASF Group has already sold around 80 percent of the apartments and all of the terrace homes on offer.
Construction has begun at Peninsula Collection and Peninsula Terraces, the final release of apartments and terrace homes in the gated community development, The Peninsula Hope Island.
The Brisbane-based builder, Constructions Group, cleared the land for development over Christmas, with earthworks and piling expected later this month. The previous two stages of the exclusive master plan are already completed.
The rest of the in demand mini-masterplan is already completed. Developer ASF Group has already sold around 80 percent of the apartments and all of the terrace homes on offer.
ASF Group Marketing Director Daniel Fang said there was an even split of buyers, with around half local owner-occupiers looking to downsize, and the other half interstate migrants and investors,
“We saw a lot of demand from buyers in Victoria and New South Wales, in particular from the dense inner-city postcodes of Sydney and Melbourne” Fang said.
“They were drawn to the recreational lifestyle of the northern Gold Coast, with their choice to move hastened by lockdowns in the southern states. Other interstate buyers were also attracted by the strong potential for capital gains due to the 2032 Summer Olympics, set to be hosted in Brisbane.”
On the interest from locals, Fang said the majority sought to downsize to Peninsula Collection and Peninsula Terraces which feature greater accessibility and internal buttons linked to gated community security.
“Buyers are cashing in on the Gold Coast property boom whilst placing a greater emphasis on lifestyle and recreation in their search for a new home.”
ASF has already sold out Peninsula Homes, a collection of 17 townhouses, Peninsula Residences, comprising 40 apartments, and Peninsula Terraces, just 22 terraces, which sit along side the Peninsula Collection.
Sherpa Property set for Mermaid Beach apartment development
Located on Albatross Avenue in Mermaid Beach, Perspective Albatross will be a bespoke low-rise beachside apartment building comprising six three-bedroom residences and two two-level penthouses.
Local Gold Coast developers, Sherpa Property Group, have unveiled plans for their latest development, Perspective Albatross, as demand for property on the coastline continues to be in high demand.
Located on Albatross Avenue in Mermaid Beach, Perspective Albatross will be a bespoke low-rise beachside apartment building comprising six three-bedroom residences and two two-level penthouses, both of which feature direct access to their own private rooftop areas.
The project is earmarked for a prime 810 sqm at 72-74 Albatross Avenue, Mermaid Beach, and is Sherpa Property Group’s first in the area.
The three-bedroom residences will feature spacious floor plans that are further enhanced with their own private balconies, right in the heart of Mermaid Beach.
Perspective Albatross residences range from 190 sqm to 310 sqm and are priced from $2.1 million.
Plans for the residences come hot on the heels of the sell-out of Sherpa’s highly anticipated Perspective Nexus development in Palm Beach and the recent unveiling of its newly completed luxury residence in Bilinga, known as Perspective 202.
Sherpa’s CEO, Christie Leet said the site had been selected due to its excellent beach access and proximity to the local shopping precinct, along with the tranquil and enviable lifestyle that Mermaid Beach exudes.
“Mermaid Beach is one of the Gold Coast’s most attractive communities, offering a unique lifestyle that makes it one of the most tightly held markets on the Coast,” Leet said.
The Perspective Albatross beachside residences are expected to appeal to the local owner-occupier market and are located just a stones’ throw away from Mermaid and Nobby beaches.
“To us, Mermaid Beach has always been more than just a location, it’s the lifestyle that draws you in and makes you feel like you never want to leave.”
Designed by Cottee Parker, the residences have been influenced by the coastal surroundings, with a light and bright colour palette being implemented throughout, integrating touches of white and gold accents for a minimalist and contemporary design.
Also expected to launch in 2022 is Perspective Broadwater, just six apartments in Biggera Waters, and Perspective Nexus, Palm Beach, which is a 34 three-bedroom apartment development, across 14 levels.

Plans Filed for Third Surfers Paradise Skyscraper
Plans for a 38-storey residential tower in Surfers Paradise have been lodged with the Gold Coast City Council, the third DA for the area filed in recent weeks.
The latest skyscraper plans were lodged by AMFS 2, led by Ayrton Mansi of the Mansi Group and Freddie Sheene, son of the late world motorbike champion Barry Sheene, for a site at 17-19 First Avenue, Surfers Paradise.
Surfers Paradise is running hot, even by its standards—the suburb hit $1.2 billion in apartment sales in the 12 months to November.
The Gold Coast’s strong apartment market during the pandemic has created a spike in projects as units increased 26 per cent in value last year.
The plans for Nineteen on First Avenue were designed by Plus Architecture and included 35 full-floor apartments with three bedrooms and north-east facing balconies.
There was also a swimming pool, work from home suites, entertaining spaces and a gym on the lower levels as well as three levels of basement car parking.
It would replace two single-storey homes on the combined 810sq m site at the corner of First Avenue and Surf Parade.
The area was characterised by primarily high-rise residential developments, interspersed with older low- to high-rise developments, according to Ozone Planning Group.
“This existing character is consistent with the City Plan’s intent for Surfers Paradise to develop as a compact, high-rise neighbourhood,” the application said.
“The proposed built form incorporates elements of coastal character consistent with the existing built form within the locale as conveyed through the material and colours palette for the development.
“Being a high-end residential development, the finishes proposed are of an equivalent standard.”
In March, 2021 refinements were made to the Gold Coast city plan with mayor Tom Tate saying the city needs to be built “upwards, not outwards” in response to growing demand for new homes.
As interstate migration is expected to continue through 2022 the market fundamentals of the city are holding strong and there are no signs of an imminent bust, according to experts.
