Chevron One, the luxury apartment tower on Chevron Island, is one step closer, as the Melbourne-based developer Bensons have appointed the well regarded and experienced construction firm, ICON, to build the 41-level building.
Construction will begin October 11 on what will be the only high-rise on the island, with the build expected to take just over three years to complete. Bensons are aiming for completion before Christmas 2024.
ICON are one of Australia and New Zealand’s largest and most experienced construction providers. Currently that have over 75 buildings under construction, including the sell-out Signature Broadbeach tower nearby.
They’ve previously built the modern Auckland apartment, retail and hotel tower, The Pacifica, and recently signed off on the luxury Circular Quay, Sydney apartment development, The Harrington Collection.
On the appointment, Bensons Property Group Managing Director Rick Curtis said “For us, it’s about selecting a builder who is able to not only execute our commitment to the design, quality and timely delivery of Chevron One, but one that can do so in a way that reflects our company mission to deliver exceptional living, whilst making a positive contribution to local communities”.
Luke Young, ICON Director of QLD, WA and NT, called Chevron One a landmark project for the Gold Coast.
“ICON are proud to be partnering with Bensons for the construction of the project of such significance. Bensons have an established reputation of developing high quality apartments, which is something that we pride ourselves on being able to offer,” Young said.
“We are excited to be underway.”
Chevron One is the vision of the Bensons chairman, philanthropist and art patron Elias Jreissati, who spends a considerable amount of time each year on the Gold Coast with his wife Colleen.
He wants to create an offering that epitomises understated luxury that Melbourne is accustomed to, combined with uninterrupted panoramic views over Surfers Paradise, all within an exclusive island location.
Bensons has just released their Daylight Sky Homes collection, occupying the upper levels of the tower, with the best, never-to-be-built-out views of Surfers Paradise. They start from $1.5 million, and range up to $15 million, the price tag for the huge 1,000 sqm sub penthouse.
They held back the apartments, but there has been such demand for luxury, larger apartments in the area.
Jreissati will be hanging on to the penthouse, the largest ever created on the Gold Coast spanning nearly 2,000 sqm.
Designed by global architecture practice Marchese Partners, Chevron One is built on the principle of a strong integration between indoor/outdoor living, with oversized balconies one of the key liveability factors.
There’s around 2,000 sqm of resident amenity, including two pools (one an outdoor lagoon style with a floating cinema and one indoor), an indoor/outdoor beach, a gym, a number of spas, a residents lounge with BBQ area and an outdoor sun-lounge on the podium level.
