A VIVID SENSE OF PLACE
Floor-to-ceiling glass was a must for the architects behind Marine Quarter, a two tower development that will be constructed on the Gold Coast.
Overlooking the Broadwater at Southport, the project will capitalise on the views, with one bedroom apartments starting from $349,000.
It is being developed by Melbourne companies, Three Pillars.and BuildCap.
“Currently being the only new residential development approved on the Broadwater
Parklands gives us a unique point of difference and a rare opportunity for those looking to live in the area,” Podium Project Marketing Peter Malady said.
The brand new one bedroom apartments will be on the market for almost $40,000 less than the current median unit sales price for Southport, according to CoreLogic.
The first part of Marine Quarter - the Oceanic Tower - will house 107 apartments over 28 storeys.
Levels five to 15 will have five apartments per floor, with just four units per floor from levels 16 to 28.
Mr Malady said the development was expected to be popular with residents seeking an active lifestyle.
“Whether you are into running, cycling, fishing or sailing, you will find incredibly easy access to practice any of these activities and more,” he said.
“Endless kilometres of running and cycling paths are right on the doorstep, and many of Southport’s boat ramps are only minutes away, giving Marine Quarter a huge advantage over other developments.”
The project has been designed by WallaceBrice Architecture, with floor-to-ceiling glass to maximise views and promote crossventilation in all apartments.
Interiors have also been kept bright and airy, with a natural tonal palette drawing from the surrounding environment.
There is a multifunctional benchtop that transforms from workspace to breakfast bar, and deep recessed balconies off the living areas that offer privacy and protection.
The balconies have uninterrupted views across the Broadwater area and out to the Pacific Ocean, with permeable screens running along the edge of all balconies to diffuse sunlight.
Two colour palettes are available for buyers to choose from.
“In terms of amenities, we really pushed ourselves to provide the ultimate entertainment and leisure experience while taking advantage of the breathtaking views,’’ Mr Malady said.
“An oversized pool, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, BBQ and grill facilities, alfresco dining areas, and a multipurpose deckare surrounded by elegant landscape and expansive views.
“Residents will definitely enjoy a resort-like experience.”
