West Homes is developing Aurora, Daniel Dziadyk of Inarc Design is behind the design, and Elie Fakhri of Joseph Douglas Realty Surfers Paradise is marketing the project.
Brett Kennedy, West Homes managing director, said Aurora was targeted to owner-occupiers.
“We are really focusing on high-end luxury and essentially a five-star finish,” he said.
“There’s a huge market of buyers looking for house-sized apartments on the Gold Coast at the moment.
“Covid taught everyone that you don’t have to be in an office every day so if you are going to work form home you may as well be sitting in front of the beach.
Each apartment will have its own wine room.
Apartments, priced from $3.7 million, include three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a powder room, study nook and wine cellar.
There are 360 degree views of the ocean, city and Hinterland with large balconies to the front and rear of each apartment.
Other features include direct access via private foyer, bespoke kitchen and butler’s pantry with V-ZUG appliances, multipurpose rooms and electric blinds and curtains.
Mr Fakhri said buyer interest had kicked of strong, and had come from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as well as Gold Coasters looking to upgrade.
“The feedback we have got is very positive,” Mr Fakhri said.
“People are saying it’s a great location and they are loving the design of the building.
“It feels more like a house than an apartment.”
The lounge area flows out to the outdoor balcony.
The resident wellness centre includes a gym, 22m heated lap pool and spa, sauna, steam room, lounge, and barbecue facilities set in subtropical gardens.
Mr Fakhri said Aurora was perfectly positioned to offer the best of the Gold Coast lifestyle.
“You’re about 250m south of the Jewel precinct and if you walk 50m you’re in the heart of Broadbeach,” he said. “It’s a great spot.”
Construction is scheduled to start in September.
The project follows the sellout of West Homes’ development at 286 Marine Pde, Labrador.
