A VIVID SENSE OF PLACE

The Courier-Mail - Home - - APARTMENTS - SAMAN­THA HEALY

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.”

Apart­ments in Ma­rine Quar­ter in South­port have floor-to-ceil­ing glass to max­imise the wa­ter views across the Broad­wa­ter.
