Interstate buyers still keen at Gold Coast’s high end as Aspire Surfers Paradise attracts Sydney and Melbourne interest

Interstate dwellers seeking a safe haven on the Gold Coast was one of the biggest property trends of 2020 and 2021 since the onset of COVID.
Many have reported locals are now the ones driving the continued success in the Gold Coast market, but the latest luxury tower to hit Surfers Paradise, Aspire, is still seeing plenty of interstate interest.
Kollosche New Projects agent Andrew Ramsey says the interstate market is favourable for this type of project.
“There’s still plenty of interest from both Sydney and Melbourne for this high-end stock, which is still undersupplied in the local market,” Ramsey says.
“Everything with a crane on the Gold Coast has virtually sold out, so there’s not a lot of opportunity at the top end of the market.”
Aspire, which is being developed by the Sydney-based developer on the sought-after Garfield Terrace beachfront, will comprise just 37 apartments over 24 levels.
Each of the half-floor apartments have between 207 sqm and 217 sqm of space, with the six full-floor apartment offering a huge 414 sqm of space.
The tower will be crowned with a two-level penthouse spanning 716 sqm of internal space.
Designed by Mosca Pserras Architects, each apartment has been crafted with sophisticated comfort and luxury in mind, featuring high-end fit outs from European Oak floors to Gaggeneau appliances.
Residents of Aspire will have private access to exclusive amenity, including a luxury infinity pool, a gym with yoga room, steam room, and infra-red sauna. There will be a barbecue space, a bar and residents’ lounge, a modern office space with conference room, and even a surfboard store.
The materials of Aspire have been carefully selected to promote a natural colour palette that reflects the colours of golden sands, giving a sense of warmth that balances the cool ocean backdrop.
Ramsey says there’s still been plenty of locals, predominantly downsizers who are wanting to move in to a space with extensive square metreage and a prime location.
Kollosche recently opened the Aspire display suite, complete with a full kitchen and bathroom, at 4 Charles Avenue, Broadbeach, on the ground floor of Oracle. There are 3D tours available of the three and four-bedroom apartments, the amenities, and the exterior of the building.
Demolition has begun at 9 Garfield Terrace, with the development approved project expected to take builder Descon Group Australia under two years to build.
