A COL­LEC­TION of lux­ury river­front apart­ments is set to hit the mar­ket in Car­rara.

Bris­bane-based de­vel­oper, QY De­vel­op­ment is be­hind River­front Res­i­dences, which will in­cor­po­rate 106 apart­ments in two six-level build­ings.

The de­vel­op­ment at 574–586 Nerang Broad­beach Rd, in­cludes an in­fin­ity pool and tim­ber board­walk on the river’s edge, ter­race and out­door gym, an out­door kitchen and bar­be­cue area, res­i­dents’ jetty and kayak, pad­dle­board and jet ski stor­age.

One, two, and three bed­room apart­ments will start from $375,000.

QY De­vel­op­ments di­rec­tor Michael Guo said it was ex­cit­ing to cre­ate a de­vel­op­ment with on and off-site recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties for the Gold Coast mar­ket.

“We wanted to cre­ate a space where res­i­dents can en­joy lux­u­ri­ous apart­ment liv­ing along with recre­ational op­por­tu­ni­ties all within walk­ing dis­tance of their home, to pro­mote the ac­tive, healthy com­mu­nity life­style that Queens­land and the Gold Coast are renowned for,” he said.

“We have as­sem­bled a team of lead­ing de­vel­op­ment in­dus­try spe­cial­ists to cre­ate River­front Res­i­dences and make the most of the river­front po­si­tion.

“Award-win­ning Bris­bane ar­chi­tects Kris Kowal­ski Ar­chi­tects and in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised project man­agers Gleeds are key con­sul­tants on the project.”

All apart­ments fea­ture mod­ern open-plan and spacious in­te­ri­ors, and flex­i­ble con­fig­u­ra­tions de­signed to meet the needs of a va­ri­ety of life­styles, and are par­tic­u­larly fo­cused around owner-oc­cu­pier liv­ing.

River­front Res­i­dences mar­ket­ing man­ager and To­tal Prop­erty Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Adrian Par­sons, said the new de­vel­op­ment of­fered a unique river­front op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal buy­ers who as­pired to live on the river.

“In­ter­est in Car­rara from home­buy­ers is nearly dou­ble the Queens­land av­er­age, as it is one of Gold Coast’s most di­verse res­i­den­tial sub­urbs,” he said.

“Car­rara is home to sev­eral pres­ti­gious golf cour­ses, in­clud­ing Emer­ald Lakes Golf Club, and the Royal Pines Golf Course di­rectly across the river.

“The site is in a highly de­sir­able north­fac­ing river­front lo­ca­tion with easy ac­cess to Pa­cific Fair, Broad­beach and Robina Town Cen­tre, and Bris­bane com­muters have easy ac­cess to the M1 and Nerang train sta­tion just a few kilo­me­tres to the west.

“Many new apart­ment de­vel­op­ments are tar­geted to in­vestors, yet the fo­cus of River­front Res­i­dences is to pro­vide a haven for owner-oc­cu­piers.”
