The hotly anticipated Chevron Island apartment development, Tapestry, which was designed to reflect the growing cultural and arts precinct just off Surfers Paradise, has launched to the market.
The 22-level project, on the prized east-side of Chevron Island at 39 Darrambal Street, is being developed by the Brisbane-based Siera Group, led by Brent Thompson, who sits on the board of UDIA QLD and chairs the Brisbane City Council Policy Committee.
The tower was designed by the local architecture firm BDA, whose brief was to merge art with architecture.
The result is a striking building of 113 apartments, featuring a mixture of vertical blade walls and horizontal slab edges which respond to available views and natural light.
Cantilevered balcony’s protrude from the building body with curved edges softening the feathered edges, BDA note.
The local aspect in the creation of Tapestry was one of the key focuses for Thompson. Aligning with the Gold Coast City Council’s efforts to make Surfers Paradise an arts and cultural hub, Siera also engaged local artist Tania Blanchard to create a piece of artwork that will hang in the lobby when completed.
“There’s a great local community on Chevron Island. It’s a tight-knit community, while being ideally located just a five minute walk from the international tourist hub of Surfers Paradise,” Thompson said.
The two-bedroom apartments, offering a generous 100 sqm of living space as well as a parking space, start from $679,000. The three-bedroom apartments, which offer 124 sqm of living space and two parking spaces, start from $975,000.
Crowning Tapestry is set to be one of the most impressive rooftop amenity spaces on the Gold Coast.
The resident rooftop will feature a resort-style swimming pool with day beds, a spa, and a pool deck. A barbecue and alfresco area will sit in landscaping, as will dining surrounded by an edible garden.
There is also set to be a private dining space with a terrace and fire pit, a gym with sauna and steam room, and a lounging area with a lawn.
Tapestry is the first development on the Gold Coast for Siera, and Thompson spent around 18 months understanding the local market to make sure the project was going to be a success.
“Spending time on the ground allowed us to understand what was coming to the market, what developers were saying, and who was buying sites and where,” Thompson said.
He identified some nice beachside opportunities, but really wanted to create something that was targeted at a wider net, rather than the multi-million dollar apartments that are limited to the fortunate few.
“We want the local owner occupier, who could be living in a medium-size house in the area, to be able to downsize or rightsize, or have others who just want to find a new lifestyle, and have the opportunity to do so without being priced out.”
Pezet Matheson will be handling the sales at Tapestry.
