The residential development of the in demand Surfers Paradise enclave Chevron Island is set to continue.
The Brisbane-focused Ention Properties are the latest developer to enter the Gold Coast market from the Queensland capital. They’re set to develop a New York-inspired apartment project, dubbed Greenwich, a reflection of Manhattan’s famous Flatiron building.
Ention have reduced the number of apartments from 48 to 46, and increase the height level to 15. It will be targeted at owner-occupiers, KM Sales and Marketing associate director Todd Matheson says.
“We envisage a majority of owner occupiers buying with 75% of the building being three bedrooms creating a vertical community crowned by a roof top with multi zoned amenity, allowing owners to come together or have private break out spaces,” Matheson says.
The building designed by Ferro Chow Architects at 30 Anembo Street, on the corner of Anembo and Aruma Streets, will be predominantly made up of three-bedrooms. There’s also a collection of two-bedroom apartments and a single four-bedroom apartment.
Ention Founding Director’s, Trent Thoroughgood and Dion Smith, said that Greenwich would open the doors to luxury for a diversity of buyers, from the downsizer all the way through to the first home buyer.
“We wanted to ensure that Greenwich surpassed the quality of its market counterparts to produce a collection of waterside residences rich in exceptionally high-level finishes, accessible to a broader range of buyers than one would expect for such a luxurious product,” said Thoroughgood.
Thoroughgood said Greenwich would inject the island with a New York ambience emanating from design features reflective of the city’s distinctive architecture and art scene, while replicating a Central Park lushness from its vantage point over the Korman Family Park.
“As the project has evolved our discussion always came back to two things, a New York/Arts Vibe located across from a beautiful leafy green park and the sophisticated architectural facade elevating the Gold Coast to a mature city,” he said.
“The proximity of the project to Gold Coast’s Home of The Arts made it the perfect fit to capture a distinctly artsy character, set mere moments from the city’s art capital,” “HOTA’s arrival reinvigorated Chevron Island with a new lease on life and we are excited to be extending this into the creation of a magnificent residential landmark that is in touch with the island’s iconic character.”
Dion Smith said the location of the building, which sits at the gateway between Chevron Island’s village and Surfers Paradise entertainment precinct, allows residents to be close to all the lifestyle amenity you could ever need or want, yet gives the sense of quiet, space and security,
The distinctive arched floor to ceiling windows will allow uninterrupted park views to the south, 270 degree views over the Nerang River to the south, west and north, and hinterland views to the west.
Crowning the tower will be a yoga lawn and rooftop pool.
Jared Chow, lead architect at Ferro Chow Architects, said Greenwich acts as a canvas to its bordering scenery, inspired by context with its materiality of a neutral palette.
“Embracing the vibrancy of the local community and lifestyle, the architecture softly frames the neighbouring landscapes capturing the beach essence.”
Its proximity to natural features and public spaces opens up abundant opportunities to call attention to its spectacular surrounding views encircled by the Nerang River.
