Mosaic Property boss Brook Monahan says the development will set a new benchmark of luxury living for an upmarket boutique building
The South East Queensland developer Mosaic Property Group are set for their next development on the Gold Coast.
It’s going to be their most boutique offering yet, with just nine whole floor apartments planned for the Burleigh Heads dress circle The Esplanade.
It will be located just up the road from their successful 47 apartment development Grace by Mosaic, which sold out in just a few months late last year.
The new apartments at 42 The Esplanade, dubbed The Heads in the submission to the Gold Coast City Council, will be designed by the architecture firm bureau^proberts and will replace the current brick apartment block built over five decades ago.
Mosaic Property boss Brook Monahan says the development will set a new benchmark of luxury living for an upmarket boutique building in Burleigh Heads.
“This is a genuinely world-class, one-of-a-kind address,” Monahan told Urban.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to create another outstanding address in Burleigh Heads, following the success of our first Burleigh project, Grace by Mosaic, which sold out in a matter of months.
“Our primary goal with 42 The Esplanade is to make it the most desirable, exclusive, and in-demand place to live on the entire beachfront in Burleigh.
Monahan says the the design draws on the areas’ natural beauty.
“The composition boasts honest materiality and elegant form,” Monahan says. It is singular in its execution while remaining authentic within the local context.”
In the design statement, bureau^proberts say the architectural design has a strong focus on subtropical building form, with a lightweight and breathable façade, lush green landscaping that continues from the ground level up and around the building, and an organic floor plate that pays homage to the undulating Burleigh headland.
Mosaic are already fielding enquiry from their VIP, pre-launch access list.
The Heads will feature a ground level pool, dining and lounge area. The apartments start on the ground level, the first complete with a large 130 sqm terrace with outdoor kitchen and landscaping.
Each apartment above will have balconies over 35 sqm.
Mosaic double-down in areas where they’ve seen great success. They had the same idea in the exclusive Mermaid Beach area, further north on the Gold Coast
After seeing success at Bela, Mosaic bought a site a few doors down on Peerless Avenue and created Dawn, which secured 95 per cent of its sales within its first two weeks of its pre-release to their database.
9 storey built form;
• 9 x 3-bedroom dwelling units;
• Two (2) levels of basement car parking with 29 resident spaces and 3 visitor spaces;
• Ample on-site landscaping and deep planting areas sufficient to contain large shade trees and balance the built form elements;
• Generous communal open space on the ground level and large private balconies for each apartment oriented to the beach;
• Pedestrian access directly off The Esplanade frontage; • Vehicle access to First Avenue via the adjoining development site, 4 First Avenue;
• Highly articulated building envelope with large boundary setbacks and separation to maintain residential amenity and privacy;
• Subtropical architectural design focused on enhancing the character of Burleigh Heads
The site at 42 The Esplanade gives new opportunity to acknowledge Burleigh’s beachfront appeal. The tower’s form is sensitive to its site and neighbourhood by responding to the existing Norfolk Pine trees, key aspect views and privacy requirements from its neighbours. The 9, single floor, vertically stacked coastal homes achieve stunning beachfront and headland views by opening the living areas out to the east, with the master bedroom placed prominently to give the residents an unrivalled northern aspect. The glazed envelope is protected down each side with horizontal batten screens which rhythmically move in and out as they rise up the building.
The slab edges move and fold around the building, reaching out to connect its inhabitants with the Esplanades’ parkland, then cutting in to open up views and angle breezes through the interior spaces. The movement of the floor plate is an homage to the undulating outcrops of the nearby headland.
Landscape is employed at the ground level to interact with the street and give space to the existing Norfolk Pine which has been previous been constrained on all edges. This allowance of space is replicated up the building with the southeast corners being cut back to give the tree its breathing space. Vegetation is continued up and around the building, creeping through the screens and with time, will drape and soften the building edges and contribute to the visual and micro-climatic coolth around the tower. As response to the beachfront climate, large outdoor living areas reduce the reliance on indoor conditioning. Breezes are mapped such that openings across and through the plan allow for effective cross ventilation of the interior
